Bicycle Corporation guest DJ Brendon P will be presenting 'Electronic Roots' episode 100. Scientific Sound Asia is an Asian DJ agency and online electronic music radio station serving the region and internationally.
Bicycle Corporation is a renowned Italian DJ and producer duo consisting of Marco Mei and Stefano Ugliano, widely recognized as 6884. Throughout their extensive musical career, the talented pair have crafted an impressive catalogue of more than 50 tracks encompassing various genres such as French House, Deep House, Tech House, and Techno.
Marco started his professional journey in the early 1990s as a member of the crew for House music and Techno events such as 'Urban People.' As time passed, he established himself in the music industry and became highly sought after throughout Italy. However, his success didn't end there. Marco soon began receiving bookings worldwide, expanding his reach beyond his home country.
Stefano, a native of Torino, Italy, displayed early talent as a burgeoning musician. His passion for the musical arts consumed much of his free time during his childhood. Stefano delved into the study of classical piano, percussion, and drums, while also developing a deep admiration for the works of Chopin and the West African instrument known as Djembe.
But amidst his deep passion for various genres of music, there was one particular thing that Stefano adored like no other: the presence of the DJ behind the turntables. This allure held a special place in the heart of the young Stefano, as those captivating beats were rarely heard on any Italian radio station during that era.
Playing those melodies and performing in front of large crowds might seem like an impossible goal for many. However, Stefano refused to be discouraged. He had a clear vision and was determined to bring it to fruition. With unwavering commitment, tireless effort, and unyielding determination, Bicycle Corporation was established.
Despite their current success, Marco and Stefan have not neglected their humble origins. Lately, they have been revisiting their earlier songs and have even established a Bandcamp page to share them with the public.
Their House Music and Techno radio show envelops the finest talent that Asia has to offer in the Electronic Music world. Their guest for today is the iconic Singaporean DJ and producer Brendon P.
