Urban Cookie Collective are a Mancunian dance act that shot to fame in 1993 with "The Key, The Secret", one of the greatest dance hits of the decade. The band comprises vocalist Diane Charlemagne, keyboard player Rohan Heath, MC Marty and DJ Pete.
Rohan decided to concentrate on his solo work before forming Urban Cookie Collective. He wrote "The Key, The Secret" at home in Manchester and released it on the tiny Unheard Records label. After a remix scored massive club success, the track was picked up by Pulse 8 Records who re-released it in August 1993. It climbed to Number 2 in the UK singles charts and was quickly followed by the UK Top 5 single, "Feels Like Heaven".
The singles were included on the album, "High On A Happy Vibe", which also spawned the Top 20 hit single, "Sail Away".
In 1995, UCC returned with the "Tales From The Magic Fountain" album which continued their happy club techno sound and featured the hit single, "Spend The Day".
Urban Cookie Collective and in particular "The Key, The Secret", are deeply etched into Manchester dance music history.
