hehe, give me a break ... this is hilarious given my own record collection and where and how I lived my 20's. But I digress.
lets just take a look at the sequence of events once more and look at things logically.
Christian F makes outlandish, totally non-sensical claim (that he engages in any number of mental gymnastics and logical fallacies to avoid substantiating) ... clearly bullshit.
The guy doesn't provide a track to go some way to illustrating what he's saying, so googling his name surfaces what ... only bullshit. Don't assume I got a bunch of Christian F results, some of which were berlin techno, and I chose the bilge because I don't know any better.
So since the clown made a completely outlandish, horse-shit claim to begin with, I wasn't going to take him too seriously about his self-applied genre specification either. From his initial statement, I assumed he was a moron, and I didn't really raise an eye-brow when the tracks I was surfacing (at that initial search) were commercial tripe. When I posted the link, I assumed I qualified my statement well enough with a derisive keyword like 'commercial', not to mention not referring to it as berlin techno, and what I also assumed was additionally clear derision
in referring to the wooshes and snare rushes. Not clearly enough I guess
as far as whether that awful track is EDM or 'commercial 4x4 techno' ... that's not an arse hair I'm willing to split, but if someone wants to assume I don't know my techno onions on that basis go right ahead
at any rate, it's curious that anyone is willing to take this dude at his word (about what he's producing) when the only words he has shared with us are clearly coming out of his ass, there seems to be some unanimous feeling on that ... Ultimately, it's not my fault that the only results I'm getting when I searched this dude twice are dogshit, and not what any of us would label decent techno, berlin or otherwise.
and since he won't post a track because "we're not worthy", do we really need to hear it anyway ? I think we all know his claims are totally spurious. If he gets a little chubby when he's staring at an expensive virtual modular that he's not getting with reaktor 6, and that has some positive placebo effect on the production of his epic berlin techno bangers ... so be it.
