The Club formed when electronica artist Dezz met Hollywood film composer Stephen Barton, who had recently returned to the UK having worked on blockbusters such as "Gladiator". The duo created the downtempo tracks that plotted the future course of the Club. When LA called with the offer to write the music for "Shrek 2" and "Narnia", Stephen took a sabbatical from the Club and the idea of a collective was born.

Dezz hooked up with enigmatic producer Ian Sanderson (whose infamous Cuckooland samples have been used on film, TV and by hundreds of artists including Massive Attack, Lemon Jelly, The Prodigy and Beastie Boys) and Urban Myth Club’s rocket left orbit. Additional members of the collective soon followed including renowned vocalists Clare Szembek (Captain, The Funky Lowlives) and Rowan Godel. Other celebrity members remain confidential.

Urban Myth Club was meant to be a secret, but a leaked album sampler found its way to a Canadian DJ who, in an unprecedented move by commercial radio, playlisted all six tracks on his show. Tastemakers in the UK and Europe were not far behind, with airplay including Radio 1, Radio 2, Xfm and a growing army of trend-setting fans such as Big Chill founder Pete Lawrence, Nick Luscombe, Bob Harris and Music Week, who featured the debut single “I Feel It” on their playlist. The band also hit the No. 1 spot MySpace’s “Top Artist” chart. The album was recently nominated for BEST ALBUM at the UK New Music Awards in London.

Pioneers in Internet collaboration, Urban Myth Club have crafted an album of beautifully eclectic tunes, fusing organic electronica with anything that tickled their fancy. Drawing favourable comparisons from Air to Röyksopp, Trevor Shand of Clear FM told listeners, “Breathtaking stuff! The hottest downtempo act ever from the UK.”

A seven-piece band live, Urban Myth Club’s line up includes Lily Allen’s keyboard player Shannon Harris. With their critically-acclaimed debut album “Helium” already being hailed a classic, Urban Myth Club have appeared mysteriously but are spreading spontaneously.
