Scientific Sound Asia radio is the premier underground electronic music station for the Asian region, with a diverse following over Asia including China, Vietnam, Malaysia, India, Sri Lanka and Internationally.
This week features a back to back from Badabooms' Bipolar Bear and guest Jarod ESC. Bipolar Bear, real name Stefan Paunescu is a Romanian DJ hailing from the small provincial city of Craiova in the south of the country. Growing up in such a small city had problems for the teenage Stefan and options for buying cutting edge music were scarce, especially being part of the former Eastern Bloc, which as with many former USSR countries drew its main musical influences from MTV.
Luckily with the birth and subsequent development of the internet the teenage Bipolar Bear was able to quench his thirst for many different genres, and he watched as the digital revolution of music transpired. With a genuine passion for producing and playing good quality music, Romanian DJ and producer Bipolar Bear loves building eclectic sets that aim to take audience on the musical journey he is conducting.
His aim is to always spread positive energy and his enthusiasm is hard to match. After leaving Romania on a furlough and carving his way in the rich Manchester music scene as a DJ and as a producer. His last project Odwana, a blend of electronic dance music infused with world sounds, African percussion and empowering vocals made waves on the UK festival scene, and his new journey materialised.
At the beginning of 2019 he relocated to Da Nang in Vietnam and has set-up the party brand Badaboom together with fellow DJ G Nomad, aiming to ring the party scene in Central Vietnam to a new level. The Badaboom Radio Show is designed in the same spirit as their events, with the desire to share the joys of music with a community of like-minded humans. Expect a wide variety of sonic delights from Funk, Soul and Rare Groove to the more experimental sides of electronic music.
This week sees Badaboom Radio show hosting another special guest, Hong Kong's very own Escaped Records main man, Jarod ESC, the latest addition to the Central Vietnam scene. Born in Paris and raised on music, Joseph Lebon a.k.a Jarod Escaped has spent the last ten years sprinkling his disco, house, and funk fairy dust all over the world.
Since 2018 he’s lived in Hong Kong, collaborating and playing with Fauve Radio, Mihn Club, and Shi Fu Mitz Festival. He is now settled in Hoi An where Jarod ESC saw the light of day. Jarod will be one of the headliners of the next Badaboom party on Saturday 30th of May alongside a volley of great talent from the region.
