Bicycle Corporation has announced its playlist for their 'Roots' episode 149. Scientific Sound Asia is an Asian electronic music station serving the region and globally.
Bicycle Corporation is an Italian pairing of the DJ and producer Marco Mei and the talented Stefano Ugliano who also goes by the moniker 6884. At the beginning of the nineties, Marco was starting out with his musical journey as a disc jockey and producer.
He began doing his own events as a collective known as Urban People across the length and breadth of Italy. This gained him admiration then after a while, he was offered a residency at Pacha, Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt.
After highlighting his skills at Pacha and gaining more recognition, he started getting DJ bookings at venues across the globe. Thus launching him on a musical journey around the planet to perform on the wheels of steel with renowned stalwarts of the electronic music industry.
Stefano, hailing from Torino Italy, showed promise as a budding musician right from childhood. He showed a keen interest in the musical arts that soon began to engulf most of his spare time. He studied classical piano, percussion and drums and greatly appreciated Chopins and West African Djembe.
As he grew, the disc jockey rearing the crowd with electronic beats proved more alluring to the teenage Stefano. His passion for electronic music which was impossible to find on stations in Italy in the nineties' overcame him and led to the evolution of his production abilities, then he met Marco and Bicycle Corporation was born.
Just recently, their earlier tracks have gone out of contract with the original labels so they have set up a Bandcamp page to distribute them. This show is a mesmerising blend of Electronica and New Wave, enjoy the show.
Listen live on Sunday 30th of October 2022 from 6 PM to 8 PM Indochina Time (ICT) and repeat Thursday from 6 AM to 8 AM (ICT).
