Well, we here, in germany are famous for a lot of stupid things. We have cars that are called “Volkswagen”, even though those cars are too expensive for the regular people. On the other hand, we have bavarians which all non-bavarians even do not consider to be germans. The third big german invention is Dieter Bohlen. He’s the best-payed composer of them all, although his music is IMHO crap
The series of great german inventions continues and finally, we invented the method to give people record contracts, although the music is crap, the singers are bad and the lyrics are dumb.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA This is the first time I can write ROFLOL and actually mean it!!! There’s a german (bavarian) exchange student living in my students corridor atm and I’m always bringing up german (and austrian) highlights like dj Ötsi, Johan Mühlegg, scooter, the “wade hade dude da”-guy and now I have yet another gem to drop on her!
we’re full of garbage like this in Italy: particulary into southern Italy, where there is a completely endemic music genre called “neomelodic”, which basically is plain love-pop mixed to traditional neapolitan music, with lyrics which are indeed a mixture of italian and neapolitan dialect.
probably the most known names are the oldish
and the newer
they both also played primary roles into love B-movies (he loves her, she has to marry an old fat man / he is a gangster who loves a good girl / he loves a girl and wants to marry her but can’t find a job / and so on).
There are local TV’s which play videoclips of this music many hours a day, where people like this guy
“sing” about love, gangsters (mainly on their part), and similar stuff.
I must admit that I also liked scooter.
but now, I like them on an other way.
Not for the music really, but that they still bring that happy hardcore stuff,
in a very thin package and get away with it.
therefore…Respect to the man in the Ice cream van !!!
yes, “hyper-hyper” was dope i also liked other songs… scooter kinda brought me into that “hardcore” stuff…
I also liked “hardcore vibes” by “Dune” and other Dune and Marusha songs that i cant remember right now yeah, if you listen to them now then youll propably say that they come in “thin” package, but back then it was and i still listen to those songs sometimes… brings back the memories
Yes! I have “Hyper Hyper” in my car-hifi right now and although this piece is so damn simple, it’s really cool somehow. But I prefer “Anhililating Rhythm” by Ultrasonic.
What I think, is really funny with Hyper Hyper is the Greetings. Most of those DJs don’t work no more (or are even dead) but those who live are sometimes even good buddies. Scotty was resident DJ at a club here and Gary D is playing at the next event I organized.
The “turkish group” from my opening post really got signed btw. Their single “sonnenlicht” (sunlight) will come out next week. I promise, they will get number one in the billboards…
@Phonkey: The “Wadde-hadde-dudde-da”-guy is the producer of that turkish bad, at least as far as I know.
@Foo?: You’re right. I forgot “the manual” by KLF… This is exactly what they discribe.
