A few days ago the house music community received a controversial article listing the “Most Respected House DJs of 2014”, compiled by Michael Johnson, some of you might know him. Lars Behrenroth claims he’s been involved in the house music industry for over 20 years but he’s never heard of this guy.
While some read, congratulated and praised the list, Behrenroth and many others had different opinions on the controversial list. One unsatisfied reader commented “I cannot say WHAT THE HELL loudly enough! I am cracking the f**k up. Who wrote this list? They must be hanging with Walter White or have a fetish for kissing ass“, on the Deep House Page Forum. Lars responded with a bitter open letter on his website, deepshades.net. He writes:
