Artful Dodger are a British R&B & UK garage band from the city of Southampton, who became famous through their 2-Step hits and gave Craig David's career a boost after he appeared on their #2 hit "Re-Rewind" in December 1999.

The band originally consisted of Mark Hill and Pete Devereux, but Devereux left prior to the release of the single "TwentyFourSeven", and Hill continued from then on to produce records under the Artful Dodger moniker by himself. The UK Garage act, comprising of Mark Hill and MC Alistair, now includes fellow producer and DJ Dave Low. Many Artful Dodger tracks can be found on the UK garage compilation CD series "Pure Garage".

The band's name was apparently taken from Lee Haynes, a bedroom DJ popular on pirate radio stations, whose father's name was Roger, which was inspired by the Artful Dodger, a character in the Charles Dickens novel "Oliver Twist". Fact|date=February 2008
