3. Cocoa Tea, “I Lost My Sonia”

Cocoa Tea
My personal introduction to this Cocoa Tea record came while thumbing through the reggae section at Fat Beats Records of all places back in ’97. It caught my eye as I’d recently lost a Sonia of my own. You know when music really speaks to you? This epitomized that vague sensation people speak of, in a specific way. It felt pretty Truman Show-y, I mean he got the name right and everything. I’d never heard a song about a Sonia beforeโ€”the irony!โ€”DJ Gravy
