Urban Cookie Collective – The Key: The Secret – 7 Inch Vinyl Record

The Key: The Secret is a song by the British electronic dance group Urban Cookie Collective. Released in 1993, it was one of the band’s most successful singles, reaching high chart positions in several countries and becoming a dance anthem of the era.

The song features catchy synth melodies, upbeat rhythms, and soulful vocals, creating an infectious and energetic dance track. The Key: The Secret is characterized by its uplifting lyrics and memorable chorus, which contributed to its popularity in clubs and on radio stations during the early 1990s.

Urban Cookie Collective achieved commercial success with The Key: The Secret, and the song remains a classic of the Eurodance genre. It has been featured in numerous compilation albums and dance music retrospectives, cementing its status as a beloved dancefloor filler.

Rohan Heath (born July 19, 1974) was the driving force behind the group. He played keyboards, co-wrote The Key The Secret with Anniffe Akinola of Chapter & The Verse, Backyard Dog and Ironweed fame (Chapter & The Verse produced A Guy Called Geralds Voodoo Ray). Heath had formerly worked with Yargo and A Guy Called Gerald. Urban Cookie Collective’s original vocalist was Diane Charlemagne, who co-wrote some of their tracks and now works with Moby . The other main members were Simon Bentall (b 17 October 1967) and Peter Samson (bongos) (b May 15, 1968), Johnny Jay and Mark Hadfield of Lucid and Love Freakz fame and Niel Claxton of Mint Royale. Guest rappers took part from time to time to create an eclectic mix in the studio.

Heath had learned classical piano as a child, and decided on a career in music after abandoning a PhD at Vermont University. After a tour of Japan supporting the Happy Mondays, he left A Guy Called Gerald. He later joined Together a band created by Haçienda regulars Suddi Raval and Jon Donaghy, the latter tragically killed in an accident in Ibiza along with his girlfriend Emma. Togethers single Hardcore Uproar made number 12 in the UK singles chart in August 1990. After a brief stint with Eek A Mouse, he created the Urban Cookie Collective, a collective of Manchesters top producers writers and performers.

They achieved a major breakthrough in 1993 with The Key: The Secret, which peaked at number 2 in the UK, and number 5 in Germany. It was originally a track written at home by Rohan Heath in a soul and hip hop vein. After a subsequent re-mix provoked a massive club response it was picked up by the Pulse 8 record label. The follow-up release was “Feels Like Heaven” which was also very successful, as well as the album High On A Happy Vibe which reached number 28 in the UK. The band remain actively together and still maintain a busy concert schedule.
