Hands On Scooter project is alive and coming up! 13.08.2008
We've got some news about a long awaited Hands On Scooter project. As you remember in 2006 the Scooter guys announced that they are working on a project called Hands On Scooter. The idea of the project is that famous musicians will remake some Scooter hits in their own style. Brilliant idea, if you ask me! But since 2006 we didn't get any news about the project and someone might be thinking that it was cancelled. But no, this is not true! On the 8 of August Scooter was answering the fans questions on VIVA TV. And when somebody asked them about the Hands On Scooter project, they replied, that they are still working on it. The Hands On Scooter album will be finished this September and also there will be a special Hands On Scooter single! Absolutely great news!

Interview with Axel Coon 29.07.2008
Here's some news from Axel Coon. He told it all to a Scooter fan Imre -SP- from Hungary. They met last Saturday at Flort Club (Hungury) where Axel did his DJ-set. So, as I said before, Imre -SP- interviewed Axel a little bit. Here are all the interesting facts from the talk:
- You may not think that Axel really reads the official Scooter forum from time to time, but he does.
- Axel was very happy that so many Scooter fans showed up. At first I thought he's getting tired about contantly "harassed" by his past, but when I asked, he smiled and said it's very lovely that we still remember - or even better, miss - him.
- He says he doesn't play Scooter in his DJ-sets nowadays, and he doesn't really bother about the new Scooter releases either. He can't even name a track from the new album, "cause Scooter release a new single almost every 2 month", and people call each track by it's abbreviated name, so he just can't keep up-to-date.
Of course this doesn't mean that he don't keep in touch with the band members. Especially Ferris and Jay are two very close friends of him.
- Their new project, 3 Global Players was kind of an unrealistic decision. He speaks with Ferris every week via the phone, but they didn't have a common project since 2003. So Ferris said "come on, let's make a track together" - et voila! In a week, the track was ready.
- Connected to the last one, Axel states that he doesn't take music production seriously (neither does Ferris). He says that they both make it for fun, and never for the money or success. He's happy about his success as is, and he said that it's demeaning for him when he reads on our forum (official Scooter forum) that people like a Scooter track just 'cause "it sounds more serious than Axel's or anyone others".
- Axel is likely to go nuts for new and interesting styles. When something new comes in, he jumps on his equipment and starts producing. That's why he enjoys making music in jumpstyle, house, hands-up, etc. altogether.
- The rumour that Rick & Axel were totally drunk when they made Bramfeld is not true. Indeed, they never had a drink when they were in studio.
- In the 3'rd chapter, Jay made every clubmix and b-side for the singles. When Axel was in the band, all tracks were made by them together, even H.P. did jobs in the production part.
- Axel loves I'm Your Pusher. He says that later on Rick and H.P. probably found something that they would change in the track, and that's why they like to scarify it in public.
- His favourite drink is Jagermeister.
Ferris and Axel's new project 24.07.2008
A new vinyl by 3 Global Players project was released in Germany not so long ago. The vinyl is called Daydream. It came out that 3 Global Players project is created by such persons as Kai Panschow, Ferris Bueller and Axel Coon. Ferris and Axel were constantly mentioning the possibility of creating a project together,and now those plans have finally become real. And what if Jay Frog participated in the project instead of Kai Panschow?! Now that would be fun!

Scooter Planet is back! 23.06.2008
Dear friends! I'm happy to inform you, that after meditaying for a long while I decided to give new birth to my web-site about german band Scooter. My web-site was present on the world wide web from 2000 till 2005. It has gone through multiple changes, its design was renovated several times, it moved from one hosting to another, etc. Unfortanately, one day I lost the hosting and domain name scooter-planet.net. Moreover, the hard disc with the originals of the site was also lost. For a while, I really missed the site and made several intents to bring it back to live and start it all over again, but couldn't make myself to do it properly. Not so long ago, I unexpectedly found my old hard drive, that have been missing for three years. When I revised it and saw the old materials for Scooter Planet, I felt the warm wave of memories invading me. I remembered the days when I constantly worked on my site, frequently updating it... in other words, I decided to create the new Scooter planet. I decided not to overload it with a big amount of sections, and make it es simple as possible. It is possible that some new sections will appear with the passage of time, but by now I decided to leave things as they are.
Well, I'm back, my friends. And Scooter Planet is back, too. I hope that those of you, who frequently visited Scooter Planet in the past, will remember the time they used to spend browsing my site and won't turn their backs on me now. So, I'd like to give them and the rest of the visitors a warm welcome.
Scar, web-master of scooter.naxx.ru
