Bicycle Corporation is an Italian duo of DJ and producer, Marco Mei and Stefano Ugliano, better known as 6884. The pair have amassed over 50 releases across genres such as Techno, Deep House, House, Melodic, and French House.
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 had a love for that was like none other, The man spinning the wheels, 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 which he would now see through to the end and with hard work, dedication and sheer tenacity, Bicycle Corporation came to be.
Even with all their success today, Marco and Stefan have not forgotten their humble beginnings. They’ve recently been reviewing some of their earlier tracks and even set up a Bandcamp page to distribute them.
Their radio show features a broad spectrum of Afrocentric music including Funk, Afrobeat, Disco, Reggae, Hip Hop, Brazilian, Rare Groove, Latin, Jazz, Reggae, and Soul. Bicycle Corporation are available for booking via our DJ agency for Asia. This show originally aired on Sunday the 31st of January. Listen to the Mixcloud player below.
