Fragma: ‘Toca’s Miracle’ Top 10 in Aus, ‘Everytime You Need Me’ Top 20 in Aus, ‘Say That You’re Here’ & ‘You Are Alive’ Top 40 in Aus
Fragma, or the Fragma Project are a German dance project. Founded in 1998 by brothers Dirk and Marco Duderstadt, they produced their first single ‘Toca Me’ with experienced record producer, Ramon Zenker. When it was released the following year, it topped several dance charts around the world and reached number 11 in the UK Singles Chart.
In 2000, a mash-up, ‘Toca's Miracle’ was produced by DJ Vimto, taking the music of Fragma's ‘Toca Me’ and placing the vocals from Coco's 1996 release ‘I Need A Miracle’ over the top, which gained further attention from DJs Pete Tong and Judge Jules. The vocals were not re-recorded by Coco and a release was made, and went straight to number one in the UK chart, and was popular in Australia and Ireland. An album was released in 2001; Toca, as well as two other singles; ‘Everytime You Need Me’ (UK number 3 hit), which featured vocals by Maria Rubia, and ‘You Are Alive’ (UK number 4 hit) with vocals by Damae.
2002 saw the Duderstadts set up their own studio, called Evergreen-Terrace. The same year saw Fragma still operating with vocalist Damae, and releasing a second album; ‘Embrace,’ with hit singles such as ‘Say That You're Here,’ ‘Embrace Me,’ ‘Man In The Moon’ and ‘Time And Time Again.’
The release of ‘Toca's Miracle 2008’ resulted in much success, making the Top 5 on the World Dance charts, #1 on the Brazil Dance Charts, and #2 on the Australian ARIA Club Charts. The debut live performance was at Gatecrasher, Nottingham in February 2008, performed by official vocalist Coco Star on behalf of Radio 1 and EMI/Positiva.
