THEY may share their name with a powerful hallucinogen, but this trio are set to make a lasting impression on the urban underground music scene.
DMT, named after the initial of each band member, are causing a buzz in clubs with their electro garage beats and soulful rap vocals.
And with their debut release Touch You, a cover of the popular classic club anthem Touch Me by Rui Da Silva, the band are bringing euphoria to UK dancefloors laden with young, fun-loving ravers.
The laidback group of musicians - Daniel De Bourg, Matt Qualifide and Taz Williams - first burst on to the clubbing scene in 2007 when their tracks were aired on regional radio stations and sampled by tranced revellers.
Taz, who was nicknamed after the energetic and raucous cartoon character, says their band's debut song was chosen because they knew and loved the original and wanted to put their own stamp on it.
The 28-year-old, who hails from Hanger Lane, Ealing, says: ''We knew we had to do a good job and do justice to the massive number one hit dance tune.
"It felt really good doing it and we produced, wrote and sung it with feeling and a sense of fun.
"The video was so exciting to shoot. We wanted to create a James Bond style video - sleek and stylish - and Daniel has a snake around him while he is sat on a chair.
"I'm terrified of snakes but it was fun working with all the women contortionists. They kept us entertained throughout, bending their bodies in so many different ways and it was a real party atmosphere in the studio."
Even after getting more than 30,000 hits on their YouTube video clip and rubbing shoulders with the likes of Jamelia, Dizzee Rascal and The Lighthouse Family, their feet are still firmly on the ground.
Taz, who can often be found dining in Nando's, Park Royal, says: "We've worked so hard and have taken everything in our stride and are not letting it go to our heads.
"We're not your typical boy band with the cut and styled look and prefer not to be put in the same box.
"We don't want to be seen as perfect; we're your average Joe on the street and our stylish garage-come-R'n'B-come-rap tunes appeal to the normal person out there.
"We enjoy going out with mates, clubbing and having fun in a party environment, seeing how people react to songs and then exploring with our own mixes."
DMT are now waiting to take on America and have high expectations for the future after massive success touring England, including venues in Skegness, Bath, Coventry, Birmingham and Southampton.
The reason behind their success and addictive single has been attributed to their different tastes in music and backgrounds.
Taz, who met Daniel in Los Angeles and Matt through a record label, says: "We love Oasis, Arctic Monkeys and Lady Gaga - a real blend of different styles.
"We decided to come together and the music just gelled and we are all outgoing and enjoy having fun.
"Matt's into garage, Dan's into R'n'B and I like soul but it's the mix that makes DMT work."
DMT wrote and recorded the album at The Suite, Primrose Hill and it was released on February 23.
