Featured Album: The Big Mash Up – 2012 Tour Edition

By Stephen Fuchs on Email @StephenWFuchs

Scooter, the German techno/dance group has released a special 2012 Tour Edition of their 2011 album The Big Mash Up, and while hardcore Scooter fans may have mixed feelings about the new music, there are some good songs to find on this release. Instead of staying with the same predictable techno sound from previous albums, Scooter has introduced more contemporary pop sounds and the more interesting dubstep influence to most of their songs.  Incorporating a dubstep sound was a natural progression for the group and I would have to say that it gives them a much more modern sound instead of the generic techno beats that are commonly found in German dance music.

The Big Mash Up – 2012 Tour Edition features all of the same songs as the regular release from last year, including the 1 hour 20 minute “Suck My Megamix – The Longest Scooter Single in the World”, but also includes a bonus live tour version of their single “It’s a Biz (Ain’t Nobody).  Currently on iTunes and Amazon MP3 the album is listed for $6.99 whereas the non-tour edition is selling for around $10 and iTunes is also including three videos at the same price.  If you weren’t a fan of Scooter in the past, I still recommend checking this release out to see if you like the new sound.

Songs to Listen To:
David Doesn’t Eat
Sex and Drugs and Rock’n’Roll
It’s a Biz (Ain’t Nobody)
C’est Bleu
