At the age of 15 and 13 Dirk and Marco Duderstadt discovered a hobby and indeed a talent: makin´ music. As the hobby can be very expensive, the two had to fight their way as LJ´s and DJ´s through several clubs. They finally found a lasting home in the Old Daddy in Haltern.
At the beginning of 1998 they had with some effort saved for a little studio in which they produced the herbinger track, which in turn would end up fliping their lives upside down.
It was a question of a song with a guitar that arouses interest of Ralf Zenker from No Respect Records. He then introduced the brothers to Ramon who already had succesful productions to his name.
It was from this guitarsong, Dirk, Marco and Ramon produced the track “Toca me” and finally established the Fragma project (www.fragma.de) in 1999. To their surprise "Toca me" was reaching the Top of all international Dance Charts and entered No. 11 of Uk´s Sales Chart.
In the year 2000 all this should be topped when the 'right' vocals came together with the 'right' track. The acappella from "Coco - I Need A Miracle" was mashed up with "Toca me" and it developed to a huge Radio- and Club hit. Everyone from Pete Tong to Judge Jules supported the Track to death. In this time Positivarecords, which also had a contract with Coco, decided to release the Track officially. "Toca`s Miracle", the Track now called, entered No. 1 of the British Sales chart and stayed there for another week.
No 1 rankings would follow in Australia, Ireland and Scandinavia. Toca´s Miracle sold more than 1 Million units and got several Gold and Platin Awards in Australia, Great Britain, Norway and Denmark.
The second single "Everytime You Need Me", sung by the british Maria Rubia, wasn´t less successful: No3 in Uk´s Sales Chart, Gold Award in Australia and in Germany it topped "Toca´s Miracle" and entered the Top 20 of its Sales Chart.
The first Lp "Toca" reached GOLD in the UK likewise and sold more than 200.000 units.
Further productions and remixes followed, e.g. for Backstreet Boys, Pulsdriver, Monoculture, Snap etc.
They were suddenly also demanded as DJ´s and had gigs on the whole planet.
