REQUEST TIME: COCO STEEL AND LOVEBOMB / K-KLASS

Since I made a request of you. It’s only right I should fulfill a couple of requests. Some Coco Steel & Lovebomb and some K-Klass.

 

There were a couple of posts about Coco Steel & Lovebomb back in October. But as a reminder: Coco Steel & Lovebomb were Chris Mellor (Coco), Lene Stokes (Steel) and Craig Woodrow (Lovebomb). Chris becoming Chris Coco and ending up on Radio 1. Chris Coco’s biog says: Raised in Sussex, Chris was a prime mover in the acid house boom of the late Eighties. His Frenzy and Coco Club nights turned Brighton’s Zap Club into the South Coast’s party epicentre. His DJing inspired him to make the enduring party classic Feel It by Coco Steel & Lovebomb.

 

Last time, I posted a track from the1994 “Set Me Free” 12″ but this time the request was for a track I didn’t post – “Dub It”. Here in the Big Girl Mix.

 

K-Klass is someone I’ve not featured before. Though I might do if we ever get to the letter K. One of the more omnipresent remixing teams on the British house scene of the 1990s, K-klass emerged in the late ’80s, founded by Andy Williams and Carl Thomas after the demise of their previous band Interstate (who had played with 808 State on the early house scene). The Welsh duo added Paul Roberts and Russ Morgan, and began recording with 1990’s Wildlife EP. Late the following year, K-klass’ single “Rhythm Is a Mystery” reached the Top Five and they began their continual residence in the club charts with later singles “Don’t Stop,” “Let Me Show You” and “What You’re Missing,” from their debut album, 1993’s Universal.

 

The request was for the “1,2,3” track from 1993 remixed by perennial ACID TED favourites Sabres of Paradise. And thanks goes to the wonderful stx for providing the track.
