Bicycle Corporation has announced the guest DJ Psycho-UK for 'Foundations' episode 57. Scientific Sound Asia is the Asian electronic music station for the region and internationally.
Bicycle Corporation is an Italian due of the DJ and Producer, Marco Mei and Stefano Ugliano, better known as 6884. They have over 50 releases across genres from Deep House, Tech House, and French House to 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 so 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 also had a great appreciation for ‘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, yes, The DJ became most enticing for the teenaged Stefano. Those beats were so seldom played on any Italian radio station in the nineties.
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.
Despite 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.

This week's guest DJ is DJ Psycho-UK, DJ Psycho-UK is an East London (UK) rude boy, hip hop turntablist, Drum and Bass, House, and multi-genre DJ. DJ Psycho got his first pair of decks at the tender age of 14 and has been dropping dope beats ever since.

Cutting his Disc Jockey teeth in the underground squat parties of 1990s London during the age of Hip Hop, Acid House and Hard-Core, he hooked up with the Production House Records crew with the likes of DMS, The House Crew and X-Static. Ever tenacious, DJ Psycho drew on London’s raw and gritty musical sub-cultures of the 90s and early 2000s to develop his own dark and dirty sound, bass-heavy, with up-tempo beats and funky grooves.
His distinct style soon saw him playing regular slots on some of London’s leading pirate radio stations such as AXE FM and Fantasy FM and spinning tunes at the city’s top venues including Scala, Bagley’s Film Studios, 491 Gallery, 291 Gallery and 333.
