SCOOTER - Hyper Hyper!
Review by Jude Kuzma, a.k.a. 'Bulletix'

Scooter have been one of my biggest musical influences of all time. They have been creating so much good songs from 1994 to 2004, and I pretty much prefer their earlier and better songs (from the mid 90's era) since the sounds and instruments sound very unique and the songs have a great deal of creativity.

My most favourite Scooter song of them all is definitely 'Hyper Hyper!', a song that was previously an original instrumental track by Scooter’s keyboardist and sound-engineer Rick J. Jordan. There is brilliant creativity in the sonic aspects of Hyper Hyper, as well as the musical aspects, and Hyper Hyper was actually one of two Scooter songs (alongside the second B-side 'Rhapsody in E') that really influenced the music to my pop track 'Sit Back & Enjoy the Ride!'.

The format I'm reviewing today is the 3-track digital download format of Hyper Hyper. Surprisingly, all of the tracks on it (Hyper Hyper, Unity Without Words Pt 1, and Rhapsody In E) are in the key signature of G# minor. Amazing! Anyhow, here's my review:

HYPER, HYPER: My most favourite Scooter song of all time, Hyper Hyper has a great deal of creativity in its sonic and musical aspects. I especially like the thumping bass-drum, beautiful synth riff at the breakdown, and the cool acid sound near the end. In addition, HP Baxxter’s lyrics are much better than the ones from 2001 onwards. Halfway through, HP says a big shout to US (short for Ultra-Sonic) and to a further thirty DJs who were popular in Germany during the mid-90s. The music to ‘Hyper Hyper’ is very impressive and influential.
(Overall rating: 10/10)

UNITY WITHOUT WORDS (PART 1): Starting off with a nice high-pitched metallic synth-sound and adding in beautiful 'underwater' sine and square sounds, this song is unique and creative. It also incorporates an identically similar acid line to Hyper Hyper. Maybe the intro is a bit long and the chord progression repetitive, but it’s well-structured and very creative. It has a very interesting techno/happy hardcore drumbeat as well.
(Overall rating: 10/10)

RHAPSODY IN E: This simple but infectious song is probably Scooter’s most experimental and relaxing trance song. A more psytrance-based B-side, 'Rhapsody In E' uses the same underwater sine and square sounds and an identical introduction, except without the high-pitched metallic synth and the tempo is much slower. There is a very interesting sample-based 'breathy voice' synth-sound as well, which I think may have probably come from a Waldorf Microwave 1 rack synth. The basic 909 bass-drum really pumps up the song too. After the first refain, the song adds in some acid synths, a choir, and a lovely piano melody in the breakdown before the next drumbeat kicks in. Overall, this song is really unique, impressive and interesting.
(Overall rating: 10/10)

I really have to say, Hyper Hyper is the most interesting and influential Scooter single ever, musically and sonically. The uniqueness and experimentation in all three songs certainly gives them a freshness and a relaxed feel. I would most definitely give this single a 10/10 rating. For all you Scooter fans who do online shopping, I would strongly recommend this single (the 3-track digital download format) because the songs in it are so good and unique in terms of timbre and sonic elements as well as musicality.
