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. Read more on Last.fm.
