DJ Mallorca Lee has died aged 51 just weeks after revealing his terminal cancer diagnosis. The Ultra Sonic artist’s family broke the news on his official social media pages on Monday, writing: “We love you infinity, goodbye and safe trip.”
The legendary DJ and producer had said he had months to live as he shared his diagnosis on social media in January.
A post on his Facebook page read: “I apologise for not telling all of my family and friends individually, it just breaks my heart a thousand times and I don’t have the strength to go through it all over and over again. “I love you all, the last ten years have been the best of them all, it really has been wonderful.“Love, that’s all we ever really have, our one true currency, so tell the ones around you what they mean to you, every day.”
Rodger Hughes and Mallorca Lee formed Ultra-Sonic in the early 90s to become one of Scotland’s most successful dance acts. After signing a recording deal in 1991 with Scottish independent dance label Clubscene Records they released their first single, ‘Obsession’ and quickly became one of the rave scene’s biggest acts.
