Baracuda is a German dance project founded by Axel Konrad and Ole Wierk of Suprime Records in the Winter of 2002. Baracuda consists of Tobias Lammer, otherwise known as DJ Toby Sky and vocalist Suny.

History[edit]

Their debut, most popular and well-known track is "Damn! (Remember The Time)", a cover of the Matthias Reim song "Verdammt, Ich Lieb' Dich". This track managed to secure Baracuda the 12th spot in the German Single Chart. Baracuda's second track, "I Leave The World Today", became fairly popular in the Summer of 2003.

Two years later in July 2005 Baracuda released their third single, "Ass Up". This song managed to grab the 70th spot in the German Singles Charts.

Baracuda released a fourth single "La Di Da" in May 2007.

In August 2008 the group released their fifth single, "I Will Love Again", a cover of Lara Fabian's famous hit from the year 2000. This single's success was more of that of their previous tracks, grabbing the 34th position in the German Singles Chart. The song makes use of the melody evident in Groove Coverage's track "God Is A Girl".

The latest Baracuda song "Where Is The Love" is the sixth single, it has many similar riffs to the Nightwish song Amaranth and makes use of the chorus. Besides elements from Poison (Alice Cooper) are used. Despite this the song still became popular in the dance scene.

Having released six singles since 2003, fans hope for a full length album from the group.
