Biography

There is more than one artist with this name:

1) Scooter is a German group, formed by Soren Buehler, Hans-Peter Geerdes, Hendrik Stedler and Jens Thele, in Hamburg, Germany in 1994. Among their more well known hits are ‘Ramp! (The Logical Song)’, ‘Move Your Ass’, ‘Fire’, ‘How Much Is The Fish?’, ‘Nessaja’ and ‘Weekend!’.

Originally the group started as a side project in 1994. Their debut single Vallée De Larmes (French for Valley Of Tears) reached #8 on the German dance chart. In April of that year, Scooter played their first live show in Hamburg, Germany, where vocalist Hans-Peter Geerdes began freestyling off the top of his head to an instrumental dance track. At that point, Scooter officially became a group, and Geerdes’ rapping would become one of the band’s trademarks together with the fact that they all of their tracks are in fact remixes, though often with different titles than the original tracks.

In 2002, Scooter enjoyed somewhat of a comeback, with 6 top twenty UK singles (‘RAMP! (The Logical Song)’, ‘Nessaja’, ‘Posse (I Need You On The Floor)’, ‘Weekend!’, “The Night’, and ‘Maria (I Like It Loud)’) all charting in an 18 month period (prior to this comeback, they only ever had one top twenty single in the UK, ‘Back In The UK’).

They have a sort of ‘trademark’ style of dance, with most of their songs featuring some “rap shouting”, sometimes featuring a high pitched vocal, which is evident especially on their biggest hit ‘RAMP! (The Logical Song)’ (which samples ‘The Logical Song’ by Supertramp).
