Bicycle Corporation has announced its playlist for their 'Roots' episode 183. Scientific Sound Asia is an Asian electronic music station serving the region and globally.
Bicycle Corporation is an Italian duo of DJ and Producer, Marco Mei and Stefano Ugliano, better known as 6884. In their years of releasing music, the pair have produced well over 50 tracks including French House, Deep House, Tech House and Techno.
Marco began his career in the early nineties by working as a crew for events like ‘Urban People.’ With time he gained recognition on the music scene and steadily became a man in demand all across Italy. But then things didn’t stop there, after so much success in his native land Marco was soon getting international bookings across the globe.
Stefano, from Torino, Italy was showing promise as a budding musician right from his childhood. He showed a keen interest in the musical arts which soon began to engulf most of his spare time. He studied classical piano, percussion and drums and greatly appreciated ‘Chopin’s and ‘West African Djembe.’
But with all his devotion to so many different kinds of music, there was one thing Stefano loved that was like none other, The man spinning the wheels, yes, The DJ became most enticing for the teenaged Stefano. Those beats were seldom played on any Italian radio station of that time.
Making those sounds let alone playing them before masses of people would seem like a pipe dream to most. But Stefano would not be deterred, he had a vision that he would now see through to the end and with hard work, dedication and sheer tenacity, Bicycle Corporation came to be.
Despite their global recognition, Marco and Stefan have not forgotten their roots as teenagers new to electronic music. They’ve recently been going back over some of their earlier tracks and even set up a Bandcamp page to distribute them.
This week's show is a nice mix of Afrobeat, Rare Groove, Brazilian, and Funk. Listen live on Sunday 12th of Novemberber 2023 from 6 PM to 8 PM Indochina Time (ICT) and repeat on Thursday from 6 AM to 8 AM (ICT).
