Say to any old school raver “We have a question” and you are sure to hear the chant “DO YOU LOVE YOUR HARDCORE??!”
In the 90s, seminal rave group Ultra-sonic were known as a work hard/party hard duo who filled our dance floors with anthem after anthem.
Touring all over the world and playing to thousands in warehouses, clubs and festivals, their smile inducing music became the soundtrack to our youth.
Mallorca Lee, one half of Ultra-sonic, then continued writing more and more music and went on to play with Bikini State, find chart success with Public Domain and start his MLXL digital label. Since his humble beginnings in Scotland he has sold over 5 million records worldwide and released over 10 artist albums including 2 solo albums and countless singles.
After his first professional DJ gig at Ministry of Sound in 2001, he was once again gracing world stages including legendary festivals such as Creamfields, Gatecrasher and Reading. And now most recently is playing with a full band to packed clubs showcasing his latest work 'Computer Games'
With his mad stage antics and cheeky larrikin persona NME proclaimed him “more rock and roll than Oasis!”.
One thing's for sure - Mallorca Lee is a genuine, unpretentious guy who has won Australia’s hearts!
We pulled up a lounge and spoke with Mallorca on a rainy June day in Sydney's Crane Bar during his 19th high-energy tour of Australia…
