This extravagant, moustachioed performer got himself quite a following with his last album, El Baile Aleman, which covered Kraftwerk classics in a cheesy, Latin style.

For the second album, Fiesta Songs, Mr Coconut works with pop, rock and soul hits like Riders on The Storm (The Doors), Smooth Operator (Sade) and Beat It (Michael Jackson) and delivers them in a Mexican style.

Coconut is one of the many alter egos of Uwe Schmidt, a Frankfurt-bred and Chile-based techno artist, who mixes electro-pop sounds with Fifties mambo, cha-cha-cha and merengue rhythms.

Schmidt has recorded more than 140 albums under many pseudonyms, the best known being Atom Heart and Lassigue Bendthaus, mostly released on his Rather Interesting Records label.

But he decided this electronic dance music technique of obscuring the identity by going under different names and alternating their use wasn't affording him enough privacy.

While in a German bed with the flu in 1996 he had a vision. He had been trying to think of ways to blend Latin music with electronic dance when he suddenly woke with the image of an album cover with the name Senor Coconut in his mind.

He packed his bag and moved to Chile, both for the new cultural experience and the additional privacy.

"I found Germany a bit boring, to be honest." he explains, "I felt like it didn't inspire me enough and I was looking for a place to move to. Living in Chile, I'm not getting too many phone calls from Press, record labels and distributors.

"I wanted to disconnect myself from the European scene my work was perceived in.

"I can still connect pretty well with what's going on in Europe or the USA if I need to but I also get very inspired by a lot of things which have absolutely nothing to do with European culture and can filter out interesting elements to develop my own sound."

The Latin interpretations of the rather serious German classics have a definite comic feel.

This is enhanced by the twists and turns of the production with a German producer creating merengue versions of German songs, a six-piece Danish band learning Latin dances and a Venezuelan singer learning German lyrics.

While the humour is intended, Schmidt insists the records also raise deeper issues.

"You could listen to the album just as entertainment and nothing too profound," he says.

"But at the same time there's the idea of a fake Third World band covering First World music."
