Detroit Techno legend Alan Oldham returns with "Drums and Weapons." The long-awaited new release and the final album under the DJ T-1000 name, completing the trilogy begun with "Progress" and "Neutra."

"Drums and Weapons" proves that you can take the man out of Detroit (Oldham has resided for some time in both Chicago and Berlin), but you can't take Detroit out of the man. The nine tracks on display here mark a personal return to pure (sonik), 4/4 old-school Detroit Techno and deep house.

Stay tuned for the remixes featuring new takes from Paul Mac, Justin Berkovi, Plural, and Kuba Sojka.

"Top Stuff from T-1000!!!!" -- DJ Rolando

"Know Your Enemy + Xmal doing it for me, thx!" -- Ben Sims

"Yes yes and yes! Alan has been a mentor to myself and so many others. This album shows him doing what he does best (aside from his amazing visual art). with so many whack, paint by numbers stuff out there, it's great to hear some real music by a true original. FULL SUPPORT! 'Know Your Enemy' is my fave here, but every track is wicked!" -- DJ Stryke

"Great tracks" -- Chuck Flask, Paxahau

"I've already been playing 'Head Down' - deep 313 vibes" -- Rolf Mulder, The Public Stand
