Scooter biography

H.P. Baxxter, Rick Jordan, Ferris Bueller, Axel Coon

1986 : Rick and H.P. start the avant-garde future pop band Celebrate The Nun in Hanover. Between 1988 and 1991 Celebrate The Nun release two albums and three singles. The highlight was reaching the Top 5 of the US Dance Charts.

In 1993 Rick, H.P., Jens Thele and Ferris Bueller (H.P.'s cousin), started the remix team The Loop with their own Loop! D.C. Studio in Hamburg. They did remixes for Tony Di Bart, Interactive, Technotronic, Adeva, Holly Johnson, Marky Mark feat. Prince Ital Joe, RuPaul and many others. The boys always kept their original name for the remix production. The reason of that explains H.P.: 'After a few years, there will be maybe no one, who will remember Scooter, but he will rather remember the Loop!' It's better to mention that it was said in spring 1996, maybe nowadays he has another opinion...

In February 1994 the first Scooter single Vallée de Larmes was released. At first, Scooter was intended as only a project and the single was a remix. By the way, the single only entered the dance charts.In April 1994, it was their first live appearance in Hamburg. Scooter changed from a project to a band, which members were H.P., Ferris and Rick whileJens Thele worked in the background as the manager. In the group they all contribute with their ideas and Rick's special role is to say, what their equipment cope with.

The second single Hyper Hyper was released in November 1994 and made Scooter instantly famous. 700,000 singles were sold in Germany alone and the single went platinum ! The title of the song became an integral part of the German language. It should have been originally instrumental, but that seemed to be too boring. So they started to use their typical shouts. Rick says about it, that they have been a little bit inspired by Steve Mason.

They also created a sideproject called Kosmos feat. Mary K. Only one single was released : Codo in 1994.

In March 1995 the third single Move Your Ass! was released. H.P.'s distinctive shout style is established as a trademark. The single climbed to Number 23 in the British charts and Number 3 in Germany.

December 1995 : with the single Back In The UK Scooter cracked the British Top 20, reaching Number 18. In Germany the song went as high as Number 5. In Ireland the single was released with the title Back In Ireland.

With their second LP Our Happy Hardcore released in February 1996 came a CD-Extra with photos, videos and information about Scooter. It was the first Enhanced CD published by a German band.

June 1996 : with Rebel Yell a Techno band covered a rock song for the first time and it reached #8 in the German charts. The band's first video collection was released : Happy Hardcore Clips. Afterwards came Break It Up, the first Techno ballad in history, released in December 1996, and written by Nosie Katzmann (who also write the track Leave In Silence).

In April 1997, Scooter was the first dance band to use a metal guitar riff on their single Fire. It entered the charts at #6 on 8 April, the highest new entry in the history of the singles charts at the time. Four weeks later it went gold with 250,000 copies sold.

Their tour, entitled Age Of Love, started in September 1997 and broke all records. Shortly before the release of the single How Much Is The Fish ? in June 1998 (which sold gold in Germany, Finland and Belgium), Ferris left the band to start a solo career. The Hamburg DJ Axel Coon, studio assistant for years, came in to replace him. In September 1998, Scooter played in front of an enthusiastic crowd of 17,000 in Moscow. To say thank you to their fans there is a limited edition of their successful No Time To Chill album, which was released in July 1998. It contained some remixes and videos.

From No Time To Chill there was 2 other singles to be released : We Are The Greatest (#26 in Germany, #1 in Russia and in Czech Republic) and Call Me Manana (Gold in Sweden, #1 in Israel, Czech Republic and Estonia). Then came Faster Harder Scooter from the forthcoming album. It sold gold in Sweden, peaked #7 in Germany and #1 in Russia and Estonia.

In September 1999 the sixth album Back To The Heavyweight Jam was released and showed Scooter in top form : the album went gold in Germany. The single Fuck The Millennium released in December 1999 was one of the most-played songs at every New Year's Eve party in Europe. It sold gold in Sweden and peaked #1 in Russia.

Fire was covered by the Italian SAIFAM project DJ Hush.

2000 : Then came in February 2000 the track Sunrise Here I Am, released under the name of Ratty. In the clip they were all three wearing rats masks. Some month ago manager of group Jens Thele revealed that Ratty was actually Scooter. Ratty also made a remix for the singles Gouryella Tenshi and Marc Et Claude Lovin' You.

The long-awaited continuous European tour began in the autumn. For over two months, from the start of September to the middle of November, the Scooter crew was on tour, from Germany up to Scandinavia and Eastern Europe. 'That will be really exciting', says Axel. 'From clubs to stadiums, we're playing everywhere.'

2001 : Scooter released new single in May entitled I'm Your Pusher, followed by the album on the 11th of June. Then came She's The Sun. According to a rumor, a cover of Dead Or Alive - You Spin Me Round was first thought to be the first single to be released. Actually this track never existed.

The follow-up to She's The Sun was Posse (I Need You On The Floor), released on May 21. At first the track was released under the name of GuessWho? as a promo club vinyl. But quickly all all fans guessed who GuessWho was because the music reminded Ratty & early Scooter tracks. The main release Posse was under Scooter name and it contained the original, extended version & tracks from GuessWho single. They used a rap text that's not written by themselves. The text "I'm biggest, I'm toughest, I'm boldest etc..." was ripped from a dutch rave classic. This text originally was from The Dominator made by Human Resource. (in 1991 this rave anthem got a top 10 hit). Posse reached #4 in Israel, and #9 in Germany.

Scooter also made a new remix for Modern Talking's latest single Win The Race. The following single to be out was Aiii Shot The DJ.

Scooter released a new track under the name of Ratty, Living On Video. But due to poor vinyl success, single wasn't released as Maxi-CD. A new single was released on the 3rd of December 2001, entitled Ramp, from forthcoming album Push The Beat For This Jam / Singles 98-02. The album, released in January 2002, was a collection of single versions of last Scooter songs (half of it differed from album version). It also contained live tracks.

Ramp! was a huge success, it peaked #7 in Germany, #4 in Austria, sold gold and platinum in Norway, went #1 in Czech Republic, Romania, Estonia and Lithuania. It was also #8 in Sweden, #10 in Denmark, #11 in Finland. More recently in England it reached #2, #1 in Ireland, and was Silver record (more than 200 000 copies sold). It was a major comeback for them there : they last had a single in the British charts in 1996 with Back In The UK. The single had to be renamed due to copyright restrictions in the UK. Video also was edited due to censorship... The CD also included special UK mixes.

2002 : after the new album, a new single was released under the name of 3 AM. Entitled Nessaja, it was afterwards re-released under the name of Scooter in March, and climbed #1 in Germany the first week of release, and sold gold there. It was also #2 in Norway, #2 in Austria, #2 in Estonia, #7 in Switzerland, #7 in Finland. There was also a limited edition released, including the uncensored videoclip. The origin of the melody is taken from a German musical for children where there's a tortoise called Nessaja.

Scooter released on the 29th of July an album in the UK. Push The Beat For This Jam - Singles '94-'02 differed from the regular Push The Beat For This Jam album : it contained only 1 CD with all singles released by Scooter in the UK (and even some more...). The release of Nessaja was planned there for the 9th of September, with special UK mixes.

In September they took part to the Dance United project, created to help the victims of the floodings in Germany. The project released a single called Reach Out on the 30th of September.

Scooter included a new member called Jay Frog. He released some solo singles and did a lot of remixes for acts like Sash, Kosmonova feat Tania Evans, Legend B... He replaced Axel Coon who released a solo single called Close To You in October. As for Ferris, he was featured as vocalist by the Ancient Of Mumu on the single Living (which was remixed by by Axel Coon). Ferris and Axel Coon also created a project called Fragrance with the single Don't Break My Heart (sounds like DJs@Work)

Nessaja was released in the USA in October. UK version of Posse including a new radio edit was in the stores on the 18th of November. It included some N-Trance remixes.

A double best of album was out on 4th November. It was be called 24 Karat Gold.

2003 : a brand new single called Weekend was released on the 24th February. Il was in the same style as Ramp (The Logical Song). It sampled Weekend by Earth & Fire, Strange World by Push, and America: What Time is Love? by The KLF. Weekend had a great and immediate success all over Europe, reaching #1 in Moldova, #2 in Hungary, #4 in Denmark and Austria, #6 in Norway, #7 in Finland and #9 in Sweden.

In April, their new album The Techno Stadium Experience was released. It went directly to #7 of the Top 100 Single Sales Chart List in Germany the first week. Its artwork was an obvious homage to the KLF's 1991 album The White Room.

New single from Scooter was released on the 26th of May and it was entitled The Night (from a song already covered by Excess feat Valery D). It included remixes from Starsplash, Langenhagen & maybe UK remix as ususal.

On the 28th of April, Ferris' solo single Living Without Your Love, a cover of Interactive song, was in the stores. Action-style video followed.

Then came Maria (I Like It Loud), which was a massive Summer hit in Germany. The song was a cover version of the 1997 song I Like It Loud by Marshall Masters featuring The Ultimate MC. It is said that the title was actually a mistyping of "My radio, I like it loud". The group won the Comet 2003 award for Best dance act.

On the 8th of December, Jigga Jigga was released. Once again it was a cover song, borrowing samples from Enya song Exile as well as a track from Mac Zimms entitled Annonce Des Couleurs (The Mystery remix). The clip was shot in Japan during their promo-tour. It peaked to position #36 in Danish charts. The vocals were done by Nikk, their "resident singer" (who is also Rick's wife).

2004 : The We Like It Loud tour started in Germany in January. Scooter took part to Germany 12 Points, the qualification show for the Eurovision Song Contest in Berlin on the 19th of March. If they were selected among the other candidates, they would represent Germany at the Eurovision with their current hit Jigga Jigga. They were very close to winning their ticket to Istambul. Among 10 candidates, 2 of them were selected for the final voting : Scooter and Max. After a neverending suspense, the result came : unfortuntalely Max was selected by the public vote instead of Scooter.

Scooter released Jigga Jigga in the UK on the 19th of April. The single included new mixes : Northstarz remix, Clubstar remix and Flip'n'Fill remix..

Their new single was entitled Shake That, it was released on the 4th of October. The style was disco-house and video was shot during the month of August, produced in Berlin. It sampled both the song After Dark by Tito & Tarantula and the chorus of the KC & The Sunshine Band song (Shake, Shake, Shake) Shake Your Booty. The single entered the German Deejay Playlist at #16 and Scooter could be seen live at Club Rotation and the German TOTP.

HP split with his girlfriend Lital Hoch (a dentist) and he is now with Simone, a student.

New album Mind The Gap was released 3 weeks later after the single, in 3 different versions (basic without booklet, standard and deluxe with 2 CDs). In an interview they announced that the album would be very different from previous ones and would not include any duo. "Mind The Gap" is a warning on London's tube station Bank. People who listen to Scooter music should just be warned, that the upcoming party will be excessive... It is also a phrase from the lyrics of the KLF's track Hey Hey We Are Not The Monkees.

Apart from the already released and forthcoming singles, it contained new tracks which all borrowed parts to already existing songs. Killer Bees was a cover of "Mind the Gap" by The KLF from the 1987 album 1987 (What the Fuck Is Going On?). My Eyes Are Dry was a partial cover of Tuxedomoon's 1978 song No Tears. All I Wanna Do sampled the Sheryl Crow's hit song All I Wanna Do. Panties Wanted was a cover of the song by Bad City Rockerz. Stripped wass a cover of the Depeche Mode song. The Avenger's Back is a half cover of Eddie Floyd's 1974 song Knock On Wood, in particular sampling the 1979 disco version by Amii Stewart. Trip to Nowhere sampled the 1998 single Godspeed by BT.

The year ended with One (Always Hardcore), a partial a cover of Always Hardcore by Neophyte, also using the chorus refrain of Alive by Pearl Jam (taken from the 1991 album Ten).

2005 : Scooter's follow-up to One (Always Hardcore) was entitled Suavemente (a cover of song originally performed by Elvis Crespo). In March, Shake That entered the Australian charts. The same month, they were nominated to TMF NL Award. According to an interview about their plans for the next future, they said would keep on covering tracks in the future. And HP declared he wanted to act in the next James-Bond Movie...

In October, Hello (Good To Be Back) was released. It used the famous machine gun intro of KLF's 3AM Eternal and Cappella's Move On Baby melody . Who's Got the Last Laugh Now was the title of their new album, out in November. The following month, the new single Apache (Rock The Bottom) was released. It used a theme already covered by General Base.

2006 : Scooter's new album was released in July and entitled Excess All Areas.

In August, Jay Frog, who joined the band four years before, replacing Axel Coon as the third member, left the trio to focus on solo projects. The successor is called Michael Simon, a 33 year-old Hamburg DJ and producer (he stood behind the Shahin & Simon project, which toured with Scooter in 1996).

Scooter's new single was entitled Behind The Cow. It was at first planned to be released on the 1st December but it was postponed to 2007. In December, HP Baxter co-presented The Dome 40 and the group performed Behind The Cow. It included a rap part by US superstar and hip hop legend Fatman Scoop. The colourful video in Bollywood style was released on 11th January. The single used a sample from the KLF's What Time Is Love and peaked to #17 in the German charts.

In February they released the track Lass Uns Tanzen as vinyl without artist name under Discomania Distribution. In March, it was confirmed that it would be the next single, the first one with German lyrics. As it contained explicit lyrics, the video and lyrics were censored.

July : Scooter's new single was The Question Is What The Question. The track sampled the song How Do You Do by Mouth & MacNeal. It reached #5 in Germany, #2 in Austria, #4 in Finland and Hungary and entered #44 in the Netherlands.

Rumors said that their new single could be a cover of Underworld's Born Slippy. Then the new single's title was revealed : it would be entitled And No Matches (based on a melody reminding of Emilia's Big Big World, and a question first imposed by The Riddler, a character in Batman), out on November 23rd, shortly followed by the new album Jumpin' All Over The World one week later.

The intro track of the album, entitled The Definition, was based on the Wikipedia article on jumping and the music of Boccherini's Menuet and Trio, from his String Quartet in E. It also contained songs such as Marian (Version), a cover of the song by The Sisters of Mercy, sung solo by HP. The Hardcore Massive covered Fuck The System by Showtek. Whistling Dave sampled the Russian folk song Korobeiniki, known as the theme music from the video game Tetris (Nintendo Game Boy version).

2008 : Jumping All Over The World was the title of Scooter's new single, out on February 1st. It was based on the song A Glass Of Champagne by the pop group Sailor.

At the end of February, the title of the next Scooter single was revealed : it was entitled I'm Lonely, remixed in a new trance version, out on April 18th. The track sampled the songs Lonely by Felix Project and A Step Too Far by Refresh.

In May, Jumping All Over The World was released in the UK. It was the first Scooter album to be released there since 2002. Massively supported by Clubland TV, it entered directly to #2, to replace Madonna at #1 the following week. The UK edition of the album introduced a new track : Jump That Rock!. It sampled the 1979 Status Quo song Whatever You Want and the introduction to te 1969 song Kick Out The Jams by MC5 (previously sampled by The KLF on What Time Is Love).

Scooter's jumpstyle dancers now have their own project : Sheffield Jumpers. They released their first single Jump With Me on the Scooter label Sheffield Tunes.

The next single was Jump That Rock!, planned for September. Its video was shot on August 12th.

On October 3rd, an extended version of Scooter's last album, renamed Jumping All Over The World - Whatever You Want, was released. The standard version included all tracks from the album, plus 7 "Hands On Scooter" bonus tracks (Scooter songs performed by well known artists such as the Bloodhound Gang). There was also a second CD with the new single, the greatest Scooter tracks of all time, and another bonus track

2009 : In July, the title of their new single was revealed : it was entitled J'adore Hardcore, released on September 4th 2009. The spoken words "J'adore hardcore" in the track are performed by French Scooter fan Maddy Julien. Song was based on Planet Funk's Chase the Sun and The Pitcher's I Just Can't Stop.

The new album, called Under The Radar Over The Top will follow on October 2nd 2009. In 2010, Scooter will start a new big tour through Germany : the "Under The Radar Over The Top Tour 2010" started in Cologne on March 11th. Scooter made their version of song Troy by Die Fantastischen Vier for their 20th year tribute album. And their hit Nessaja was used as main theme on the movie "Brüno".

In October, they released Ti Sento, featuring famous Italian singer Antonella Ruggiero (who originally released it in 1985 as she was a member of Matia Bazar). The next single was a re-recorded version of The Sound Above My Hair. It was inspired by Wonderful Life by the English alternative rock band Black. The video was shot in and around the Wernigerode castle in Germany. Premiere took place on November 13th, the single itself was out on November 27th.

2010 : Scooter's new single Stuck On Replay was the official song of the 2010 International Ice Hockey Federation World Championship in Germany. It was released as a single in March 2010. It sampled the chorus of the 1984 Lionel Richie Stuck on You and the bridge of A Kay A by DJ Phil TY.

In May, they won a platinum Comet award for their whole carreer. In June they to released a Blu-Ray, DVD and CD of their concert in Hamburg. Their successful "Under The Readar Over The Top Tour" continued by the end of the year under the name "Stuff The Turkey X-mas Tour 2010".

2011 : Scooter released Friends Turbo, a remixed version of their hit Friends. It was featured as main theme on the German soundtrack of the Dutch movie New Kids Turbo. They shot the video for the single on Saturday 9th in Maaskantje (Netherlands), dressed like in the How Much Is The Fish videoclip, at the ogininal scenery of the movie together with Gerry from the New Kids. Scooter were nominated as best liveact at the Viva Comet Award 2011 but did not win.

The new Scooter single was entitled The Only One and was out on May 20th. In September, they announced that they have just finished recording their forthcoming album The Big Mash Up. Style of the new songs (dubstep) surprised the long-time fans. Their new single was entitled David Doesn’t Eat. Then came C'est Bleu, featuring Vicky Leandros.

2012 : in March, they released their new single It's A Biz (Ain't Nobody), for the beginning of their The Big Mash Up-Tour 2012. It did not do very well in the charts... In an interview for German channel Viva, they admitted that their change of music style was maybe a little bit too fast. Their new single was entitled 4 AM (inspired from Beverly Craven's hit Promise Me first verse) and it was released in September, feautring vocals by Jaye Marshall.
