On this day, four years ago, I went to the studio w/ Coco Maria for the very first time to record her vocal contributions for "La Añoranza". It would later become the leading track on my 2019 album "With Love, From Berlin". It was Coco´s first ever day in a recording studio and she was well excited yet very shy to record her voice. At the beginning of the recordings, she even asked me and my engineer Jamie Anderson to leave the studio so she could sing parts of "La Añoranza" without our presence. Later on, Coco got more confident and we both sang different passages together, recording her bit by bit. In a second session later that week, we finalised the recording.
Fast forward to 2022 and Coco has turned into one of the main radio presenters on Gilles Peterson´s Worldwide FM and is now a much booked and celebrated DJ who performs around the world. But most of all, our collaboration "La Añoranza", with additional contributions from Dengue Dengue Dengue and Ori Kaplan turned into a radio hit and was by now streamed more than 800.000 times on Spotify. Thanks to all involved!
