Description

Detroit selector, producer and label owner (Pure Sonik Records) DJ T-1000 lands once again on BPitch Berlin with ‘The Dirrty Underground EP’, a dirty, percussive and pounding back-to-basics techno 4-tracker.

DJ T-1000 a.k.a Alan Oldham is a central figure in techno history. Detroit born and based in Berlin, he began his career in the early 90s with Underground Resistance, and is a prolific producer whose music has appe- ared on many labels including BPitch and Tresor. Behind the scenes, he runs legendary Detroit labels like Generator, Pure Sonik and Detroitrocketscience, and also works as a graphic artist and illustrator, producing iconic cover and merch artworks for Djax-Up-Beats, +8, Transmat and many more.

On ‘The Dirrty Underground EP’ Oldham utilises the timeless techno fundamentals – pummeling hardware percussion, tight loops, and chopped humorous samples, resulting in tracks quite different from his usual fare. ‘Clitfuck’ and ‘Think You Can Handle It’ are a pair of fast and loose hardware jams inspired by Ellen Al- lien’s recent sets. As the name implies ‘I Love It In My Acid’ is a murky, tunneling acid weapon, and ‘I Fucking Love Berlin’, with its raw, sleazy groove, pays fitting homage to the Detroit-Berlin axis.
