Though Coco Steel & Lovebomb grew out of the techno community, the group blends elements of garage, soul and disco with only an ambient-techno blueprint. After Coco (aka Chris Mellor) began DJing at the Brighton club Zap, his acid-house sets grew popular in the wake of the late-'80s house explosion. With partner Steel (aka Lene), he formed Coco Steel & Lovebomb, originally growing out of Zap with the single "Feel It" and its follow-ups: "Touch It," "Hold It," "Work It." After taking three years to record debut album It!, the duo released it in 1994. An ambient outing, New World, followed in 1997, followed by a remix album two years later.
