Born and raised in Detroit now based in Berlin, Alan Oldham a.k.a. DJ T-1000 has been called “Detroit Techno’s Renaissance Man”. Perhaps best known as a DJ and his music production under the guise DJ T-1000 for the Generator, Pure Sonik, Tresor, and Inzec labels, Alan D. Oldham began as an illustrator/comic book artist who published such notable characters like Johnny Gambit, Dangergirl aka Orietta St. Cloud and the recent, Vectra. Oldham’s artwork have also graced the early releases of Derrick May’s label Transmat which first introduced him to the techno music world and later responsible for the iconic look of the hard hitting techno and house label, DJAX-UP-BEATS, Netherlands.
In 2011, Oldham launched a series of sold-out art happenings in Paris, Amsterdam, Los Angeles, Barcelona, Vienna, and Berlin, translating his comics-inspired, techno-defining Djax-Up-Beats style to paint and canvas. His originals are now owned by the likes of Derrick May, Radio Slave, Ben Sims, Steve Bug, Cisco Ferriera (The Advent), Marsel Delsin (Delsin Records), Steve Parker, Ritzi Lee, and other famous techno notables. Commissioned work, most recently for Berlin’s legendary Dr. Motte, also fills his daily schedule.
As DJ T-1000, Oldham still keeps to his old Underground Resistance vinyl roots. He is a veteran headliner of such festivals as Love Parade, Awakenings, E-Troit Festival, N.A.M.E.
