Meet Harry MC, the baby-faced DJ prodigy setting the world alight and dreams with playing in Ibiza’s big clubs.
“By the age of six I knew my way around Space, Eden, O Beach and Es Paradis, while Café Mambo owner Javier Anadon gave me my first Ibiza DJ booking at the Defected pre-party while I was still at school.”
Harrison McDonald didn’t have a normal childhood. His father Barry was a promoter for the famous Garlands nightclub in the UK, which had a huge white isle residency and while his mates were spending their summers chilling out, Harrison enrolled in DJ training camps. Today Harry MC is quickly becoming the talk of San Antonio with his weekend residency at Bam-Bu-Ku and spots at Plastik, while in October he begins a new radio show on Ibiza Global Radio UAE. But it is Liverpool Football Club that he owes his biggest high five to. After seeing a video of Harrison DJing , the club gave him the booking of a lifetime – a spot at the Champions League Fan Park in Madrid in 2018 where he performed to 75,000 Liverpool supporters. At the age of 12.
Four years later and he was back again, this time playing at the Fan Park in Paris before the Liverpool–Real Madrid game. “My grandad Bob was a huge fan, he even got married in the Anfield trophy room!” Harrison says. “He sadly passed away last year but his favourite song in the world was The Beatles’ Hey Jude, which I played mid-set. I have goosebumps even now recalling turning the music off to allow 80,000 people to sing the song back to me. Although I dream of playing Ushuaïa and Hï, I doubt it will beat that feeling, knowing my grandad was looking down at me with a huge smile on his face.”
