A Liverpool-based dance music outfit that scored a record deal in 2003, released a number two charting single that year, and then saw their popularity fade and return by 2007, Ultrabeat was formed by school friends Mike di Scala, Chris Henry, and Ian Redman.
They scored their record deal with a demo of the track "Pretty Green Eyes" with label All Around the World, which released the track, and it shot to (nearly) the top of the charts. Their next two singles, "Feelin' Fine" and "Better Than Life," hit the Top 25, but single number four failed to make the same waves, and Ultrabeat fell out of favor, and had to shelve their planned debut album. Upon releasing the single "Elysium (I Go Crazy)," Ultrabeat saw themselves back in the good graces of the pop-buying public, and with vocalist Rebecca Rudd, the group found new life in the charts and was able to get enough momentum to release their debut album in September 2007. The album, Ultrabeat: The Album, broke the Top Ten on the U.K. charts. ~ Chris True, Rovi
