A vehicle destroyed, a pizza delivery job terminated. EDM dilettantism and general disillusionment soaring at a fever pitch. For Mikey Lee, early 2008 resembled a topography of dark and untimely events, and the assemblage of lush, listless bedroom tunes was the most powerful antidote.
A point of return was realized in the eponymous track "Heath Ledger" -- an ode to troubled dynamism and superficial fascination in the wake of the subject's overdose. This attracted the attention of DJs Die Young and David Day, residents of the local electronic music fixture Basstown--and ultimately lead to a debut performance-- supporting Kompakt's techno-maestro The Field.
Mikey's DJ residences around Boston, just about an hour east of his hometown of Worcester, a dense cloud of blog-followers, and the self-released EP cassette "747" aggregated in a nomination for the Best Local Electronic/Dance Act of '09 in the Boston Phoenix, shows with Lymbyc System, Telefon Tel Aviv, and Small Black. The floodgates then opened gloriously for assimilation into the DIY basement party machine known as Big Digits with shows alongside Dan Deacon and Health.
With the arrival of the single EGGGIRL (ode to meme pinup EGGGIRL) in the Spring of 2010 and a slew of EPs and collaborations scheduled to materialize in 2010, the Coralcola forecast is bubbling and resolute. Mikey Lee's auratic quest pushes forward to future levels, propelled by the everyday sifting-through and plundering of fragments of popkultur, foliage and industrial detritus of Worcesterian suburbia.
