Just over a year after the well-received debut of the Cocada series, Get Physical – M.A.N.D.Y, Booka Shade, and DJ T‘s coveted Berlin-based label – returns with the second installment, Cocada: The Second Season. The sophomore edition of the series arrives with talents from across Latin America including Cuba’s first female electronic duo, Zahira Sánchez and Paula Fernández – better known as PAUZA.
PAUZA have undeniably been making waves in the tech-house scene as their standout single ‘Carajillo’ sees its relaunch in Cocada: The Second Season. ‘Carajillo’ cohesively infuses electronic synths with Cuban rhythms to provide listeners with a sample of the power of the Cuban groove. Featuring lively vocals from Cuban songstress La Real – the single generated wild success across Mexico and Latin America, proving to be the perfect addition to the second installment of Get Physical’s Cocada series. The duo’s timeless and delightfully uplifting Cuban sound that stays true to their roots is evident in each and every one of their intricately crafted productions, including their latest single ‘Se vende’ ft. Telmary which followed the success of ‘Carajillo.
Initially aiming to showcase new, exciting, and fresh productions emerging from the Brazilian music sphere, The Cocada series initially strived to showcase new and fresh productions in the Brazillian music scene – they now work to broaden their horizons as this pillar of Cocada highlights burgeoning Latin American talent from Argentina, Colombia, Bolivia, Cuba and Mexico alongside Brazillian talents.
As PAUZA continues to expand their artistic prowess within the electronic industry while retaining their Cuban flare, the female duo will never cease to showcase why they’re a force to be reckoned with and continue to solidify their standing within the Latin American music industry.
