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 appeared 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 utilizes 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.
You can now listen to the full premiere of ‘I Love It In My Acid’ exclusively on When We Dip. Enjoy!
