Esom are back and this time we are in Glasgow...the dance capitol of Scotland...
our guest for this event is Scotland #1 DJ/MC Mallorca Lee.........
Voted No.1 in The Scottish Vestax DJ20 Poll for three years running, Mallorca Lee has been touring the globe for over 20 years and still maintains a unique Punk rock approach to both DJ'ing & music production that defies genre by blowing up the boundaries and pick locking the pigeon holes of modern day dance music ! His hi-octane DJ sets consciously ignore musical divides, charging into the future while embracing the past, fearlessly mixing up his Classic production sets at the massive Back To The Future, 1994, Fantazia events, with his latest productions in upfront sets at the mighty Coloursfest, Judgment Fridays Ibiza, Planet Love, Homelands, Creamfields, Gatecrasher even Chill-out sets at the legendary Cafe Mambo, Ibiza and smashing the main stage at the infamous Reading & Leeds Festivals where NME magazine proclaimed him "more rock and roll than Oasis! ". Could he even be "The voice of our RAVE generation ? "
In the summer of 1990 Mallorca Lee formed seminal rave group Ultra-Sonic and quickly went from playing illegal raves to headlining every major dance event around the world before many of today's "super star DJ's" had even mixed their first record ! He continued to do so with global chart toppers Public Domain in 2000 until he left the band to concentrate on his DJ'ing and solo productions in 2003. Mallorca's first ever professional DJ gig was at the infamous Ministry of Sound, London in 2001 !
From busting rhymes with rap legends Chuck D & Professor Griff (Public Enemy) during the London riots to supporting Tiesto each time he arrived in Scotland, closing his sold out - Kaleidoscope Tour in 2010, Scotland's biggest annual dance festival Coloursfest in 2011 and Judgment Sundays, Ibiza with Judge Jules in 2012. The self confessed "Tekno Junkie" openly sites Hip-Hop & Acid House as his Rock & Roll ! This multi-talented madman has sold over 5 MILLION records worldwide, released over 10 artist albums and countless singles that have blazed an unmitigated trail thru acid house, rave, trance, hip-hop and the harder side of dance for over two decades. He has played in New York, Tokyo, Ibiza, Russia, New Zealand, Budapest and Germany just after the fall of the Iron curtain and toured Australia an astonishing 18 times, making him one of if not Scotland's most enduring and ground breaking DJ / Producer's.
Its not only in the Harder side of dance Mallorca has applied his talents, mixing 7 hour House set's at his now legendary DON'T DELETE Weekenders in Beduin, London every month ( now in its 10th year), he has also played several Sunset Boat Parties in Ibiza and the legendary Cafe Mambo. He signed to Eric Morillo's uber cool Subliminal Records as part of Scanners with David Forbes, their indispensable, vinyl only Debunk Music Imprint harbours some of the best producers in House music (Steve Lawler, Deepgroove, D.O.N.S. Mike Monday) and their Trance label Red Monkey Records signed and released the first ever recordings from Scottish Trance exports Signal Runners and Mark Sherry !
In 2008 Mallorca launched MLXL digital to continue championing new and exciting artists from Scotland and around the world alongside his own productions which have gained rave reviews in MIXMAG, DJ MAG & IDJ. His debut solo album XL (2010) and XL:Remixed (2011) were supported by just about every A-list DJ worth a mention. His brand new album "COMPUTER GAMES" released in December 2013 is causing quite a fuss. An album Mallorca sights as his first real artist album, with tracks like YALDAY , TOGETHER, SETTING SUNS , HONEY, SHE SAID feat Ross Ferguson paving the way for another monster release schedule in 2014. Fans have already took to tattooing his lyrics all over their body's !!!
In amongst all this madness we cant forget his monthlyXL Podcast's which started on iTunes in Januray 2011 and gains thousands of new global listeners every episode.
