Alan Oldham has been called Detroit’s Renaissance Man, a true Motor City original.
From his beginnings as a member of Underground Resistance (replacing Jeff Mills), to seminal releases on Tresor Berlin, BPitch Control, Third Ear, Suspected, Elypsia Records (under his Detroit Rocket Science alias), his own Pure Sonik label and many others, to remixes for such heavyweights as Loco Dice and Ellen Allien, to his legendary artwork for such labels as Transmat, Djax-Up-Beats, New Religion, Houndstooth, Dark Entries, and more, Oldham does it all.
Under his stage name of DJ T-1000, Oldham has criss-crossed the globe rocking dancefloors from Amsterdam to London to Rome to Tokyo to Shanghai to Mexico City to his native Detroit and back to his current home in Berlin, where he holds down residencies at Tresor Berlin and Suicide Circus.
As an illustrator who started out in the indie comics scene of the mid-1980s, Oldham levelled up to canvases and has had successful international gallery shows in Amsterdam, Vienna, Paris, Stettin (Poland), Detroit, and Berlin, with more to come.
Over 25 years in the game, and Oldham remains at the forefront of both art and music.
