Season's Greetings 31.12.2008

I would like to send my most sincere congratulations to all the visitors of Scooter Planet website. I wish you and all your relatives and family members be happy, and let this upcoming year be even better, then the one that is coming to it's end. As for Scooter, I'm sure that the guys will keep bringing us joy and happiness, and giving us their new groovy rhythms. I would also like to use this oportunity and give my New Year greetz to Scooter guys. I know the guys will never read this, but, anyway... Maybe Santa Claus will give them those greetings, I bet he knows that they are coming from our very heart.

Well, that's it... looks like I expressed everything I wanted to... so, stop sitting here looking at your computer screen. Go reunite with your family, have a festive dinner and rise your glasses, full of champagne. But be carefull drinking, OK? ;) Happy New Year!

Sido - Beweg Dein Arsch (the video) 19.12.2008

H.P. Baxxter stars in Sido's new video Beweg Dein Arsch (a song from Hands On Scooter CD). You can watch the video right here. Personally I don't like rap very much but it's always interesting to see your favourite artist as a guest star in another artist's video. It's kind of fun. Check it out. H.P. will drop his mask in the end :)

27.02.2009 | Rostov at Don | Sportdon
28.02.2009 | St. Petersburg | spbckk

Hands On Scooter official release date. 08.12.2008

The official release date of Hands On Scooter album is the 9'th of January 2009. This information has come from the web-site. aem, administator of the Official Forum at confirms this date.

The delay of Hands On Scooter 17.11.2008

The release of Hands On Scooter CD has neen postponed for a month. This is what aem (official Scooter forum administrator) said. So it seems that Hands On Scooter will be released in the middle of January 2009. Well, it's OK, we'll wait. But hey, give us some news about the REAL new Scooter album! We need it :)

Sido's track will be released on Sheffield Tunes 09.11.2008

A track performed by german rap singer Sido called Beweg Dein Arsh, which formed part of Hands On Scooter section on Jumping All Over The World - Whatever You Want album will be released as a single at Sheffield Tunes, a record label, owned by Scooter on the 28'th of November. It is possible that the remixes on this track will also be released as a part of the single. Based on this, it is easy to imagine, that Scooter will also make a remix on this track. Anyway, by now the latter is nothing but imagination.

Russian license of JAOTW WYW has been released 03.11.2008

Russian company Tanzevalniy Ray (Dance Paradise) released the Jumping All Over The World Whatever You Want album. But this release is a little bit different from German version. It contains of two discs one CD and one DVD. The DVD disc contains the Scooter concert in Berlin, the same one as on JAOTW WYW German edition. But the audio CD is different. It contains all the tracks from the normal (old) edition of Jumping All Over The World album (released in 2007) and the Hands On Scooter section. That means that there's no single version of Jump That Rock (Whatever You Want) included. Why did Tanzevalniy Ray decide to release such a strange release? This is a question I cannot answer.

New Scooter album in 2009 29.10.2008

I'm Lonely digital only in the UK 03.10.2008

This is a quote from UK's label All Around The World web-site:

'The digital only release of Scooter - I'm Lonely. The single was due for a full blown release as the 3rd single from the Platinum Jumping All Over The World album but after the Scooter vs. Status Quo track Jump That Rock sort of took on a life of it's own as a work of complete genius, we decided that efforts were best put into pushing Jump That Rock as the full 3rd single. For those of you who do want the full single though, I'm Lonely is available to download now via iTunes UK store.'

Hands On Scooter sound samples 29.09.2008

The sound samples of all Hands On Scooter project tracks, that will appear on Jumping All Over The World Whatever You Want album are available at!

Scooter concert in Moscow 26.09.2008 review 27.09.2008

Hello to all! I wrote a review of Scooter concert in Moscow! You can find it in Interesting section! Also you'll find there some photos and videos from the concert! Enjoy!!!

Making of Jump That Rock (Whatever You Want) 19.09.2008

Here you can watch the clip about making of Jump That Rock (Whatever You Want) video. The quality isn't very good, but OK. It's a nice video worth watching. H.P., Rick and Michael together with Status Quo on the shooting stage.

News about Jump That Rock (Whatever You Want) 14.09.2008

The Jump That Rock (Whatever You Want) video clip was premiered on Clubland TV (one of the English TV channels). One can also buy this video clip at iTunes online stores. And I suggest you to watch the video online right here. By the way, it looks like there are two versions of the video. The two versions don't differ much, but still, there is a scene in one of them that don't appear in another. The second version of the video features a scene of a man killing another man with the chain saw. I cannot even imagine what kind of message did the director of the video want to deliver by including this scene in his work. I also don't know what on Earth does a big hummer or a man, who looks both like Adolph Hitler and Winston Churchill do there, but A hummer, mentioned above, is decorated with "Union Jack" and is used to destroy a wall, which separates Scooter from Status Quo, which could be an allusion to the Fall of the Berlin Wall. Well, you can make your own conclusions.
