Biography

Fragma, or the Fragma Project are a German dance project, originally comprising four members. Their most successful single “Toca’s Miracle” reached #1 in the UK, selling over 800,000 copies.
Career

Founded in 1998 by brothers Dirk Duderstadt 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, taking the music of Fragma’s “Toca Me” and placing the vocals from solo Gospel singer Coco Star’s 1997 song “I Need A Miracle” (written for Coco Star by Rob Davis and Victor Imbres) over the top, which gained further attention from DJs Pete Tong and Judge Jules. As Fragma and Coco were on the same record label at the time (Positiva), the vocals were re-recorded by Coco and an official 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), and “You Are Alive” (UK number 4 hit) .
