hehe, very true. If you have EDM A.D.D who knows where one could end up. I used to listen to industrial (which much of this techno is derived from) and now I listen to pretty much everything depending on mood, as it all has its time and place for appreciation and consumption.
k let's try this again...

My Journey through music was like this... As a kid I was always exposed to eurodance and pop living in Moscow... In Fall 2007 I went to a rave in MTL with Armin Rank 1 and house djs.. obviously trance blew me away and for a couple of month after that obviously trance was the main thing, eventually slowly going towards the tech trance and proggier sounds..
Early 2008 I was exposed to Lawler with his 2007 Sonica radio set, and Dubfire was the thing as well at that time... Summer 2008 Lawler @ Toronto skybar was what got me into minimal caca. I started getting into it more and more and by the end of 2008 I was into proggy sounds like Zabiela and Sasha and the more techno sounding stuff like Creator...
Was never really too crazy about house, and I don't think I ever will be. Eventually after going to Creators blackout nights for almost 3 years now I have seen a lot of techno djs, live acts, and some cutting edge music... I had tech house phase too but that got boring pretty quicky, when I discovered the Berghain guys...
It was after seeing Tommy four seven in 2009 I started to check out this kind of sound from his angle, and I have been following him ever seen, with his huge album that came out this year.... Man can that guy control 4 decks... better then liebing imo... more creative with efx...
Anyways my point is that I have been through all these phases and it is clear to me that the most interesting stuff lies within how you mix these tracks,what you create , the DJ himself... I believe that with tracks(most of which are tools anyway) by producers you have named as well as new talent in the genre that is appearing here and there I can paint the picture of what I want much clearer then the latter(being simple a to b mixing).
Honestly a few times I am standing on the dancefloor of stereo and some Layo and Bushwacka are playing and I am fkn booored, like most of the tracks sounds similar, theres almost no tension, bass is simple as hell, I yawn, I go home...
/wall of text.
Quite the journey. Yeah sometimes I think all people who are meant to listen to techno will reach it sooner or later in their edm journey. As for me, partied to hard trance for about half a year back in 2002 until heard techno the same year in a dirty industrial underground club in Poland [youtube Kanty] and the rest is history. I wasn't even considering stuff like Armin/Lawler/Carlo Lio etc, obviously Berghain tech is much more interesting/advanced than any of that stuff, props to you guys in this thread for recognizing it even tho there aint much of a scene in mtl for it. Tastes keep going through phases, I find there's no ultimate phase where you can say 'thats it, I have arrived.' I kinda felt this way with Berghain tech in 2009 and then was quite surprised for me to somewhat move on in the last 6 months. Even if you treat a lot of these tracks as tools in a set, to me its the rhythmical structure of the loop that I don't find as hypnotic anymore, feels too rigid and predictable, at least for home listening. Its still fun stuff to party to with many of the tracks sounding wicked on a proper sound system.
Oh and my comments also did not refer to the actual Berghain club itself either, there is far more than just music that goes into making its vibe and unmatched experience.
As for Reeko, he used to be the bomb back in 2003-2005…really pounding and fresh sounding drums, check his release on Theory or Deafmosaic. loved it back then, but find his recent stuff pretty unexciting.
As to that Death Abyss track…man, good ing taste. I follow Rodz Konez so I got it as soon as it came out, and to me Its the most savage and intense dark/hard techno track of the last few years. However it has little to do with Berghain for 2 reasons: a) stylistically and thematically its more of a continuation of dark techno of the last decade [British Murder Boys/Makaton/Female/Luka Baumann/(Old)Ruskin/(Old) Function etc etc etc]
b) Steve [Voidloss/Death Abyss] has himself more often than not complained about the blandness of a lot of the Berghain sound.
Honestly if Berghain was churning out monsters of this caliber I would be the last person complaining.

I bought this track a while ago, but listening to it again, i realize how awesome it really is, the subtle detail in it... James Ruskin is the bomb, really)))
The break is sooo good...
One of the best [new] Ruskin tracks for sure. Check his remix of Raiz, really like this one as well
really pleasantly surprised, quite the monster from Female. bass is massive
