“Bassdrum” by Scooter (ft. FiNCH ASOZiAL)
Scooter is a band which consistently depicts music and the fact that they have adopted “the rave” as their profession in a positive light. Basically music plays a very important role in their existence beyond just putting food on the table.
And this (“Bassdrum”) is yet another song from the God Save the Rave album era which relays such an idea, albeit a bit more creatively than some of the others.
And as far as how the terms “bass” and “drum” are utilized therein, they can be said to be synonymous with Scooter’s aforementioned perception of music.
The reason the crew, alongside Finch Asozial, are ‘celebrating the bassdrum’ is because it represents consistency amongst change – their life’s purpose, if you will.
Also, as implied earlier, their adoption of such represents an ideology. Or let’s say being dedicated to their craft is the artists’ at hand’s manifestation of the ever-popular ‘live for the moment’ philosophy. And in terms of the type of music that Scooter and Finch Asozial like to produce, they would of course be that which gets the party jumping.
