Biography

Bass Bumpers are two of the most creative songwriters and producers of dancefloor-hits in Germany these days.

Henning Reith - Multi-talented keyboard player and the person behind the sound mixing desk is the one coming up with ever new ideas for songs and sounds. He composed "I Can't Stand It" - a charthit with Twenty 4 Seven all over the world.

"Caba" Kroll - Contributes to Bass Bumpers with his long time of experience as deejay at the Bochum Tarm Center and arranges the productions for the dancefloor-scene. He is also responsible for the Bass Bumpers management and he plans the tours with all the tour agencies and licenses in Germany and abroad.

Bass Bumpers were found in 1990 when Henning and Caba released their first production with the dance label
Dance Street. With the title "Can't Stop Dancing" the Bass Bumpers entered the European dancefloor-scene.

For the second production "Get The Big Bass", the Englishman E.Mello (Nelan Freeman) was engaged as songwriter and rapper. E.Mello, a former member of the Starlight Express ensemble and an educated dancer, creates the choreographies for the shows. "Get The Big Bass" immeditately sold 20.000 records in Germany and was listed in the top ranks of the DMC charts for weeks. In Spain, France and Italy "Get The Big Bass" was played in every club and eventually became a top 10 club-hit in the summer of 1991.

Another year had passed when record No. 3, "The Music's Got Me", was released which caused the Bass Bumpers international break-through. "The Music's Got Me" was released worldwide with the newly-engaged singer Felicia Ugaje and E.Mello. The song became a hit in the sales charts in France (No. 16 in the top 50), in the USA (No. 28 on the Billboard Maxisingles) and in Spain (No. 10), as well as in all important club-charts in Germany, Benelux, Italy, Austria and in Switzerland in 1992. It was a real surprise when the Bass Bumpers "The Music's Got Me" immediately became No. 25 in the U.K. Top 40 Charts.

Having released the singel "Move To The Rhythm" (Top 50 in France) and the album "ADVANCE" in the autumn of 1992, the title "Bass Bumpers Megabump" became another smash club-hit.

The single "Running" was the last in the successful series of the Bass Bumpers productions to be released in 1993.

From 1990 to 1993 more than 200.000 singels and albums were sold in Germany, though the official Media Control-
charts were never reached.

Exactly one year later the new Bass Bumpers single "Good Fun" was released. In the course of this year the studio was reorganized and new license agreements were made with EAST WEST records (territory: Germany & USA) and Dance Street (territory: worldwide).

In 1997 Bass Bumpers released a single called "Running ´97".

On March 29, 2001 the single "Music Turns Me On" was released.

The best of album "Dance History" was released on April 5, 2004.

Bass Bumpers was behind the hugely successful Crazy Frog - "Axel F" which has peaked at #1 in UK, #3 in Germany and #1 in several other European countries.
