"Fanatico is a new project of DJ-producer Mathias Schaffhäuser and vocalist Jorge Socarras from New York. The project came about when Mathias Schaffhäuser did a remix of a track from the Patrick Cowley and Jorge Socarras vintage 70's album, 'Catholic', which was retro-released in 2009 by Macro Music, Berlin. The two men had never met, but Socarras contacted Schaffhäuser to say how much he liked the remix. Schaffhäuser, who was an old fan of Socarras' 80's band, Indoor Life, replied suggesting that perhaps they might work together sometime. Through subsequent emails both expressed how they'd each been wanting to interpret some cover songs, eventually leading to Socarras going to Köln in August 2010 and spending a week recording with Schaffhäuser in his studio. The two had remarkable chemistry from the start, working together as if they were longtime music partners. Indeed Socarras felt that in Schaffhäuser's envelope-pushing minimalism he'd found a contemporary successor to his earlier collaborators." (label info)
