2019 Rewind: Alan Oldham


How was 2019 for you?
Alan Oldham (a.k.a. DJ T-1000): Another great year in Berlin! Health is good, work is good.

Playing the main stage at Movement! Always fun to rock my hometown! Also getting to meet Charlotte De Witte, who I played with in Detroit. She’s a total sweetheart. And releasing my latest EP, Pure Sonik Youth.

Finding out that Fold London closed soon after I got to play there back in the fall. There’s an online petition online to keep it open. Sign it if you can!

Song of the year?
Not a song, but a mix/live show. Richie Hawtin’s “CLOSE Combined” killed 2019. Sound and visuals. Game-changing. Inspiring. Expect to see copycat live/DJ hybrid setups and shows in 2020.

What’s your New Year’s resolution?
Be less lazy, get back to making comics, try to save more money (it’s hard), and finally try to learn German!
