Bicycle Corporation has released the playlist of music for their next 'Roots' show. Scientific Sound Asia is the Asian electronic music station for Sri Lanka, Japan, Singapore, Thailand, India, South Korea, and Asia.
Bicycle Corporation is an Italian duo of the DJ and producers Marco MEI plus the skilled Stefano Ugliano aka 6884. As a duo, they have released well over 50 tracks and remixes across all genres from Deep to Tech House, French House, and Techno.
In the early nineties, Marco was starting on his musical journey as a DJ and producer. He began doing his own nights as a collective known as 'Urban People' throughout the whole of Italy.
This gained him notoriety and he earned a residency at Pacha, which led to him getting DJ bookings internationally. This launched him on a musical endeavour around the planet.
Raised in Torino, Italy, Stefano in his early years displayed a fortitude of abilities with music. He studied with a passion for classical piano, percussion, and drums, he loved his Chopins and West African Djembes.
However, over time, that figure of 'the DJ standing on the stage performing' proved more and more mesmerising for the teenage Stefano. He wondered if those very electronic beats, so hard to get on ‘90s Italian radio stations, were going to launch a very new chapter in his life and then Bicycle Corporation was born.
Even with all their success today, Marco and Stefan have not forgotten their humble beginnings. They’ve recently been going back over some of their earlier tracks and even set up a Bandcamp page to distribute them.
The track list for the next show is laid out below and represents the 'Roots' of their sound and the genres they have drawn influence from in their electronic releases. These genres include Funk, Disco, Soul, Afrobeat, Electro, Rare Groove, Hip Hop, and Afrocentric.
Bicycle Corporation is available for booking via our DJ agency for Asia. This show originally aired on Sunday 26th of July, listen to the Mixcloud player below.
