Mallorca Lee, the founder of iconic Scottish 90s dance music group Ultra-Sonic, has died aged 51, weeks after revealing he’d been diagnosed with terminal cancer.

The DJ recently told his fans he may only have a ‘matter of months left’ after publicly revealing his diagnosis last month.

He then died on Sunday afternoon, with a post on social media by DJ KID revealing the sad news the next day.

It read: ‘It is with tremendous sadness that I announce the sad passing on Sunday afternoon of legendary Scottish DJ, producer and long-time friend Mallorca Lee, who was diagnosed with terminal cancer just 4 weeks ago. He was 51.

‘During this incredibly upsetting time, my deepest sympathy goes out to Maria Mallorca’s wife his children Angel and Oceano and his extended family and friends.

‘You will be deeply missed, brother, but your energy and legacy will live on.’

Lee founded the techno group Ultra-Sonic in Ayrshire in 1991.

He was diagnosed with terminal cancer just four weeks ago.

Following his diagnosis Lee apologised for not telling all of his friends and family individually in a post on social media, explaining he didn’t have the ‘strength’ to repeat it all.

‘I’ve been diagnosed with terminal cancer, the doctor said it could be a matter of months,’ he shared.

‘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 10 years have been the best of them all. It really has been wonderful.’

He continued: ‘Forgive me if I don’t answer your calls and messages. I’m still processing it, even this post feels like someone else is writing it.

‘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.’
