Bicycle Corporation guest DJ Terence C will present his next Electronic Roots show. Scientific Sound Asia is the Asian electronic music station and DJ agency for the region and internationally.
Bicycle Corporation is an Italian duo of the DJ and producer Marco Mei plus the skilled Stefano Ugliano aka 6884. As a pair, they have released over 50 original works and remixes across the spectrum of House and Techno.
At the beginning of the early nineties, Marco was starting on his musical journey as a disc jockey mesmerised by the birth of Electronic music and Afrocentric music. After his introduction, he began doing his own House music events and Techno events as a collective known as Urban People throughout the length of Italy.
His skills on the decks gained him notoriety and he gained a residency at Pacha, Egypt. His residency at Pacha gave him recognition and DJ bookings internationally and started him on a musical mission around the planet.
Born and growing up in Torino, Italy, Stefano in his early years displayed incredible abilities with music. He studied classical piano, percussion, and drums with passion, and loved his Chopins and West African Djembe.
However, as he grew his fascination with music developed and his main draw was the image of the electronic DJ rearing the crowd. He never knew that those very electronic beats, so hard to get on ‘90s Italian radio stations, were going to launch a very new chapter in his life.
Despite their success today, Marco and Stefan have not forgotten their humble beginnings. Just recently they’ve been going back over some of their earlier tracks and even set up a Bandcamp page to distribute them. Their House Music radio and Techno radio show Electronic Roots highlights some of the key artists across the Asian region.
Guest DJ Terence C.
This week’s guest is Malaysian DJ and producer Terence C, one of the most solid figures in the industry and currently based in Shanghai, China. After more than twenty years as a resident DJ in some of Kuala Lumpur’s biggest clubs and venues, Terence has established himself as one of the Gems of Malaysia’s House Music and Techno scene.
Throughout his career, Terence has warmed up for some of the biggest names in music. Artists like David Morales, Fatboy Slim, Pete Tong and many others have come on stage to find and found the crowd pumping after Terence has worked the platters. Some big hitters have even personally requested Terence as their opening act.
As a testament to his skills behind the decks, Terence has long been the first choice of Digweed when he plays In KL. The two of them have performed together many a time and have played a vital part in making Malaysia’s iconic Zouk the world-renowned club brand it is today.
Terence is spearheading monthly Techno events at Zouk entitled, ‘We Love Techno’ along with one of KL’s biggest payers, DJ XU. We Love Techno will focus on more underground sounds like those of labels like Drumcode, Cocoon Recordings and many more.
Launching his career in 1998 as a disciple of DJ Chris Doss, he became better established on the music scene by gaining residencies at venues like Cubeat and Globar. There was never any doubt he was going to go places but a major break for this young talent was landing a warm-up gig for the esteemed David Morales for his first-ever Malaysian show.
Terence was a resident DJ at the seminal Movement Club at the turn of the century, thus securing himself as a leading figure in the history of Malaysia’s electronic music scene. He has since been present across the city wherever those sounds have thrived, including venues like Backroom, Nouvo and Atmosphere.
Terence has not only made his mark in Malaysia but across Southeast Asia too, with performances at Lush, Singapore and Liquid, Ho Chi Minh City. In 2005, Terence and artists Callen Tham and Digital launched a new audio-visual collective known as Altered Image, which went way beyond anything seen before.
Altered Image combined cinematic visuals, turntable beats and Live FX, producing mixes that were way ahead of their time yet remained true to their origin of the dance floor.
After coming top of the Malaysian heats of the Heineken Thirst competition that year, the three went on tour across Southeast Asia as Altered Image, picking up a new fan base as they toured.
Since then, Terence has remained a leading figure in technical innovation and, more recently, mastered the Ableton Live production suite. He now plays live seats using the software and traditional decks and CDJs.
Terence C is now emerging with his production work and audiences can expect a flood of new releases in the coming year, not to mention a growing presence across Southeast Asia. With a reputation as one of Malaysia’s top DJs, Terence C is well on his way to becoming a prominent figure in the Asian electronic music scene thus his House Music and Techno radio show on our station.
In this month's radio show, Terence C features a plethora of genres including Tech House, Deep House, Progressive House, Breaks, and Techno. Listen live on Wednesday 3rd of January 2024 from 6 PM to 8 PM Indochina Time (ICT) and repeat on Sunday from 6 AM to 8 AM (ICT).
