Bicycle Corporation's guest DJ Brendon P is set to introduce the 109th episode of Electronic Roots. Scientific Sound Asia stands as a prominent electronic music station catering to the Asian region and beyond.


Bicycle Corporation comprises the Italian duo of DJ and producer Marco Mei and Stefano Ugliano, who is also recognised as 6884. Throughout their music career, spanning numerous years, the duo has crafted a catalogue of more than 50 tracks across various genres, encompassing French House, Deep House, Tech House, and Techno.

Marco embarked on his career journey in the early nineties, initially serving as part of the crew for House Music and Techno events under the banner of 'Urban People.' As time progressed, his talents garnered recognition within the music scene, propelling him to become a sought-after figure throughout Italy. However, Marco's ambitions extended beyond national borders, leading to a cascade of international bookings that took him across the globe, solidifying his status as a global presence in the industry.


Hailing from Torino, Italy, Stefano exhibited early promise as a budding musician, a passion that blossomed from his childhood years. Immersed in the world of musical arts, he dedicated much of his spare time to honing his craft. Stefano's musical education encompassed classical piano, percussion, and drums, and he developed a profound appreciation for the works of Chopin as well as the rhythms of West African Djembe.


However, amidst his diverse musical pursuits, there was one passion that captivated Stefano like no other: the art of DJing. As a teenager, he found himself drawn to the mesmerising skills of the DJ, whose ability to spin and manipulate beats held an irresistible allure. These captivating rhythms were a rarity on the airwaves of Italian radio stations during that era, further fuelling Stefano's fascination with the craft.


For many, the notion of creating and performing such sounds, let alone sharing them with large audiences, would appear nothing short of a pipe dream. However, Stefano remained undeterred by the seeming impossibility. With a steadfast vision driving him forward, he joined forces with Marco. Through unwavering determination, relentless hard work, and sheer tenacity, Bicycle Corporation was born, bringing their shared musical vision to fruition.


Despite their current success, Marco and Stefano remain grounded in their humble origins. Recently, they have been revisiting some of their earlier tracks, demonstrating a commitment to their roots. Additionally, they have established a Bandcamp page to distribute these tracks, allowing fans old and new to reconnect with their early work. Their House Music and Techno radio show Electronic Roots features DJs and producers who are involved heavily in Electronic music across Asia.
