Where on Earth… Ultra-Sonic

It was 1995 when I first saw a live gig by Ultra Sonic [US].  On 27th December 1995, I boarded a chartered bus from the Square Shopping Centre car park in Tallaght, Dublin circa 6.30 pm, destined for N.E.C. Navan, County Meath. Fortunately, I had a V.I.P. pass giving me [triple AAA] Access-All-Areas, even backstage!  When we arrived, my friend and I got to hang out with the performing artists, stage crew and backing dancers.  I had already been an avid Techno follower and for a first time US gig, the lighting effects, music and energy with Mallorca Lee MC on the mic getting the crowd going.  I must admit – it was an amazing experience!

From Ayrshire – Scotland, 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 the Scottish independent dance label Clubscene Records (founded 1991).  In 1994, they released their first single, ‘Obsession’ (Feat. Scottish singer Heather Allan) and quickly became one of the rave scene’s biggest acts.  I must admit this is probably one of my favourite tracks along with Annihilating Rhythm… and Angel. Between 1992 and 1997 US have released 5 studio albums 3 of which were with ClubScene Records and one with Rumour Records

[US] Studio Albums

  • Tekno Junkies ’92–’94 (1994)
  • Global Tekno (1995)
  • The Hour of Chaos (1997)
  • Annihilating Rhythms (2005)

His tunes have hounded my turntables and dogged-out my dancefloors for many years to howling response! Judge Jules.

Acid & Eve – Genre | House [digitally released Feb. 2019] is the latest album from Mallorca, celebrating 30 years of Acid House Music and Roland Technology.  Returning to the machines and sounds that got him excited and addicted to electronic music and changed his life forever…

The US certainly hasn’t slowed down, in fact, it’s time to ‘wind it up!’ with some more Annihilating Rhythms…

Lovers and Friends – Second date added!

If you had read our article on Lovers and Friends Festival 2022 you'll know that i was very, very skeptical about this event but was also going to be in the queue to buy a ticket. For this to be true, i was more than willing to risk a couple hundred to avoid FOMO. It certainly looks like this is legit. Many more stars have now confirmed and the event sold […]
