Scooter


Scooter are a German techno hard dance group founded in Hamburg, who have sold over 30 million records and earned over 80 gold and platinum awards. Scooter are considered the most successful German single-record act with 23 top ten hits. The group is currently composed of members H.P. Baxxter, Phil Speiser and Michael Simon.
 
 


Although most of the group's early recordings are in the styles of happy hardcore or hard trance, Scooter have experimented with other dance genres such as hardstyle and jumpstyle, and occasionally hip hop, hard rock, house and dubstep.



 
 

 
Scooter's trademark sound features fast tempos and happy melodies, accompanied by frontman H.P. Baxxter rapping lyrics, sampling, and occasionally choruses involving artificially pitched voices. Among their more well-known hits are "Hyper Hyper", "Move Your Ass!", "How Much Is The Fish?", "Ramp! (The Logical Song)", "Nessaja", "Weekend", "Maria (I Like It Loud)" and "The Question Is What Is the Question”?
 


Musical style
 
Scooter's musical style has been defined as a fusion of Happy Hardcore and Hard Trance. Scooter has taken inspiration from such artists like The KLF, Marc Acardipane, Charly Lownoise and Mental Theo, and has more recently sampled melodies from hardstyle producers, such as Technoboy and Headhunterz.


 
 

 

Frontman H.P. Baxxter performs his own vocals, which usually rhyme and occasionally involve puns, sayings, and idioms. Scooter vocals are usually shouted, and are usually meant to arouse a crowd. Crowd samples prevail in Scooter's style, with songs like "Maria (I Like It Loud)", "J'adore Hardcore", and "Seven Bridges" featuring full crowd refrains.

 







Most of the music produced by Scooter is above 135 BPM, though there are also occasional slow tracks. Many of the slower tracks, such as "Second Skin", draw inspiration from New Wave music. This leans toward H.P. Baxxter and Rick J. Jordan's roots as new wave musicians before Scooter began.
 
 
 

 


 
The Fifth Chapter (20 years of Scooter and departure of Rick J. Jordan) (2014-Present) On October 15, 2013, Scooter officially announced that their founding member Rick J. Jordan will be leaving the band at the end of the trio's 20 Years Of Hardcore Tour 2014. According to the frontman of Scooter, H.P. Baxxter, in the future, Phil Speiser (from Dirty Disco Youth or DDY) took Rick J. Jordan's spot to provide his skills on the drums, synthesizers, piano as well as sound effects.



 
Scooter have also announced that their new studio album can be expected sometime in August 2014, which will be the beginning of The Fifth Chapter.
 
 

 

 
Live performances
Concerts

Scooter are known for giving very extravagant live performances, usually with dancers on stage performing certain styles of dancing, like Jumpstyle or the Melbourne Shuffle. These are accompanied by laser shows and pyrotechnics (an example of such would be a light changing positions every beat while small explosions occur on stage at the same rate).
 
 
In concert, Scooter encourages crowd participation, often having frontman H.P. Baxxter shout out certain phrases and have them mimicked by the crowd between songs, and having the crowd sing along to the chorus of many songs. Scooter also opens concerts with large introductions, coupled with laser shows and thematic music. Pyrotechnics also make occasional appearances during both indoor and outdoor shows.
