Lee Mortimer is fast becoming the hottest DJ of the moment with his unique take on bass-fuelled house music. Lee is keen to point out ‘anything heavy, electronic and above all else, BIG(!) will make it into my sets!’ These sets are getting bigger too with jaunts around the world playing clubs as far a field as Singapore (Club Zirca) and Australia (HQ/Revolver) where he will soon be an underground superstar. He also played most of the UK festivals in 2009 and 2010 with a storming turn at Bestival which had the crowd going mental in the middle of the day!
“Lee Mortimer is one of the UK’s quickest-rising starts in electronic music, pumping out tracks at an alarming rate. Watch out!” -A-Trak
As well as his sterling efforts on the wheels of steel he has also made a name for himself as a producer par excellence with tracks signed to Fool’s Gold, Dubsided, CR2 and Made to Play. He’s also provided remixes for bands such as Franz Ferdinand, The Futureheads and Bombay Bicycle Club to name but a few. He has also re-jigged tunes by Foamo, DJ Zinc, Dave Spoon & Pete Tong to spine tingling effect. Many of these mixes have also appeared on compilations by Claude Von Stroke, Plump DJs and Kissy Sell Out. It seems Lee has a knack for lifting already banging tunes up a notch into the upper echelons of dance floor hedonism!
“Lee was one of the first we contacted and with whom we started sharing tracks. He was doing some real great fresh sounding tunes and is definitely still doing it!” – Crookers
Within his crowd pleasing sets Mr Mortimer will drop many a record that he’s had a hand in production wise. Most successful of these is the collaboration with Laidback Luke on the enormous club anthem ‘Blau!’ This was one of the biggest tunes of 2009 with DJ’s such a Crookers, Annie Mac and Tiesto giving it their full support.
Lee is also the head honcho of his own label Wearhouse Music which has produced tons of fantastic EP’s since it began including the amazing Champion Sound EP as well as hot tracks from Foamo, Jaimie Fanatic, Douster, HiJack and Andy George. With cutting edge releases coming out all the time Wearhouse music has become one of the coolest record companies around and admirers include such dance dignitaries as Laurent Garnier.
“Lee is a stomping producer! Be on the lookout for more killer tracks” - Steve Aoki
Lee Mortimer is the complete package. He remixes; produces and his DJ skills are unbeatable. It all falls into place when watching him play out as the crowd throbs in unison as each new bassline warps into another. Basically Lee just loves music and you can hear this love in everything he touches from full on party tunes (“Superman” his collab with Foamo) to 80’s electro revamps (check out the awesome remix of Visage - Fade To Grey). With talent to spare Lee isn’t just one to watch, he is the one to watch.
