Bicycle Corporation has unveiled DJ Jasmine Li as the guest for their 'Electronic Roots' episode 111. Scientific Sound Asia stands as an Asian electronic music station, broadcasting both regionally and internationally.


Bicycle Corporation comprises the Italian duo of DJ and producer, Marco Mei and Stefano Ugliano, better known as 6884. Over the years, the duo has amassed a substantial discography, with well over 50 tracks spanning genres such as French House, Deep House, Tech House, and Techno.

Marco commenced his career in the early nineties, initially working as a crew for House Music and Techno events such as ‘Urban People.’ Over time, his talent garnered recognition within the music scene, propelling him to become a sought-after figure throughout Italy. However, his success didn't plateau there; with his growing acclaim in his native land, Marco soon began receiving international bookings across the globe.


Stefano, hailing from Torino, Italy, displayed early promise as a budding musician, with a passion for the musical arts evident from his childhood. His spare time became consumed by his deep interest in music, as he delved into classical piano, percussion, and drums. Additionally, he developed a profound appreciation for composers like Chopin and instruments such as the West African Djembe.


Despite Stefano's devotion to various genres of music, there was one passion that stood out above the rest: the sight of the DJ behind the decks. As a teenager, Stefano found himself captivated by the art of DJing, with its beats and rhythms unlike anything heard on Italian radio stations at that time.


For many, the idea of creating and performing such music before large audiences might seem like a distant dream. Yet, Stefano remained undeterred. Driven by a vision he was determined to see through, he embarked on a journey with Marco marked by hard work, dedication, and unwavering tenacity. This relentless pursuit culminated in the establishment of Bicycle Corporation, a testament to their perseverance and passion for music.


Despite their current success, Marco and Stefan remain grounded in their humble beginnings. Recently, they have revisited some of their earlier tracks, reflecting on their musical journey. In a nostalgic move, they have even set up a Bandcamp page to distribute these tracks, embracing their roots and acknowledging the path that has led them to where they are today.
