Bipolar Bear has announced the playlist for 'BADABOOM' 04 radio show with guest DANE this Monday the 4th of May 2020 8 to 10 PM Indochina Time (ICT) and repeating Friday 8 to 10 AM. Scientific Sound Asia is the premier underground electronic music radio station for the Asian region, with a diverse following over Asia including China, Vietnam, Malaysia, India, Sri Lanka and Internationally.
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 the 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 forlore 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 episode showcases the hosts' affinity to take a more deep and spiritual direction, throughout 2 hours of hypnotic beats with the focus on melodic techno whilst still swinging throughout genres. Starting the set with a tribute to the legendary drummer Tony Allen who recently passed away.
The first track is an extract from the late musician's collaborative album with Jeff Mills, Detroit legend and of the pioneers of Techno music. Another highlight of the show is the track "Hmmmm" by Romain FX, released only a few days ago on the EP "Kimokeye" which is the first imprint of the Vietnam-based label On Point Worldwide.
