... and the Beat Goes On! is the debut studio album by German dance group Scooter. Four singles were released from it: "Hyper Hyper", "Move Your Ass!", "Friends" and "Endless Summer".

Production[edit]

After the success of the single "Hyper Hyper", Scooter decided to make their debut album. Released in early 1995, it contains brand new tracks and reworked "The Loop!"-remixes. There are no gaps between the tracks, it sounds like an imaginary Scooter gig.

The album was re-released in 2013 in the "20 Years of Hardcore Expanded Edition" series. This version contains 3 CDs: the first is the digitally remastered original album; the other two contains the singles, B-sides, live recordings and remixes related to the album.

Track listing[edit]

All tracks written by H.P. Baxxter, Rick J. Jordan, Jens Thele, and Ferris Bueller.

Notes
  • "Waiting for Spring" is based on The Loop!'s remix of the 1994 single "Parade" by Community Featuring Fonda Rae, entitled "Parade (Waiting 4 Spring)". The Loop! was composed of H.P. Baxxter, Rick J. Jordan and Ferris Bueller before they became Scooter.
  • "Hyper Hyper" takes elements from Scottish group Ultra-Sonic's 1993 song "Annihilating Rhythm", much to Ultra-Sonic's chagrin.[1]
  • The album released on 2 LPs. The main difference from the original edition is the lyrics: most of the tracks, with the exception of the singles, are instrumental.
  • "Faster Harder Scooter" is a different track than "FasterHarderScooter" from the 1999 album "Back to the Heavyweight Jam".
