The new Scooter album + Section 1's videoblog #2 30.12.2015
The new interview with H.P. Baxxter have appeared on the Net. It's not very interesting for the Scooter fans, because mainly it concentrates on H.P.'s participation in Deutschland Sucht Den Superstar TV-show as a jury member. But it contains one really interesting answer for the Scooter fans. When he was asked about his plans, H.P. said that the new Scooter album will be released in the beginning of February, 2016. This is really good news, especially for the Russian fans who will probably hear the new stuff at the March live shows that will take place in Russia.
Also we have some news from Section 1. Their second studio blog was uploaded to YouTube. You can watch it right now. Check it out!
Rebel Yell! 09.12.2015
In yesterday's show TV Total on German TV H.P. Baxxter and Stefan Raab (the show host) have performed Billy Idol's Rebel Yell together. Rebel Yell is a great rock track which is very popular inside the Scooter Posse crew, because of its techno version that was released by Scooter in 1996. This time H.P. Baxxter and Stefen Raab performed not the techno version of the song, it was the rock version! That's why it's so interesting for the Scooter fans. I must say, that the performance was insanely good, I really liked it! It seems that H.P.'s voice fits the rock music as good as it fits the techno music. I really enjoyed it. You, guys, must watch the video recording of the Rebel Yell performance... like right fucking now! Seriously!

You can check and maybe even buy the release here. The Christmas is coming, ho ho ho!
Soul Train remix and news from Section 1 30.11.2015
There are no news from Scooter for a few weeks in a row. That's because they are traveling from city to city and making a lot of live shows nowadays. I hope soon we'll get more real news from them about the new music releases. So let's just wait. But today I've got some good news for all the Scooter and Trance fans. Maybe you remember the great Trance bootleg remix of Scooter's Soul Train, that was produced by Symon & Jay musical project? It was even played during one of the radio shows. I've asked the musicians to upload this remix in a good quality for us back then... I think it was more than five months ago. Today they finally answered and uploaded the remix in good quality! You can download it right now if you'll navigate to this page. Enjoy the great music!
Also today we have some good news from Section 1. Their official YouTube channel was updated with the full versions of some of their tracks and remixes. Here's the list: Section 1 - Hard Stuff (Axel Coon Remix), Section 1 - Gonna Take You High (Remastered), Urry Fefelove & Abramasi feat. Fedor Burov - I'll Wait For You (Section 1 Remix), Section 1 - Rhythm Of My Heart (Single Version) è Trancestral - Blast From The Past (Section 1 Remix). Also there you will find a preview of Hard Stuff (Extended), which was not available anywhere before! By the way, the Extended and Club mixes of Hard Stuff will be officially available for purchaise on 30th of December at Beatport. The preview of Hard Stuff (Club Mix) will be available on YouTube very soon. And finally, the last (but not least) news from Section 1. Their next single is almost finished! It's called 44. More information will hopefully come soon. Don't miss the news.

— The track Riot was produced especially for the live show in Hamburg (where this track was performed live for the first time);

— Can't Stop The Hardcore Tour 2016 live shows will be longer than 1 hour 20 minutes each
There were more questions and answers probably, but I've mentioned the most interesting ones.

A small part of the new Scooter track 10.06.2015
The German site wdr.de introduced a new video-interview with Scooter for the show which is called Rockpalast Backstage. The interview is in German language, which, unfortunately, I don't understand. But I can say, that the host of the show and the band members were talking about the Scooter history, their work on the new album and EDM, a very popular music flow, in which Scooter surely want to participate. As a long-time Scooter fan (and as the author of the site you're reading right now), I must say, that I hate this new EDM conception and I'm sure that this sound absolutely NOT for Scooter. But you, guys, of course know, that H.P. and Co. are very dogged. They don't want to produce the music we want from them, but they're looking forward to follow the stupid trends with a diligence. OK, I think I stepped back from the topic a little... The most interesting thing for us is hiding at 12:04 in the video. One can hear a small preview of the new Scooter track, that will be included in the new album.
