CHICAGO--After a seven-year layoff during which massive changes in recording and distribution rocked the music industry, Detroit-born, Chicago based techno label PURE SONIK RECORDS is getting back into the arena! Our first new project: JOHNNY GAMBIT 01: THE PRODIGAL SON ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK. --- Back in 1987, a young Alan D. Oldham (the future DJ T-1000) produced his first widely-released indie comic book, called JOHNNY GAMBIT. At the same time, Oldham's childhood friend, Derrick May, was producing his first twelve-inch record, "Nude Photo," on his Transmat label (for which Alan did the artwork). Why not put the comics inside the records, asked May. From that basic idea, two legends were born. --- JOHNNY GAMBIT the comic book was featured in the first-ever article about Detroit Techno in London's The Face magazine (1987). The article, titled "Seventh City Techno," was named after Gambit's fictional city. Years later, future minimal legend Dan Bell, inspired by Oldham's comics, asked if he could use the Seventh City name for his own label, and Oldham himself segued into the techno business, eventually touring, producing and releasing under the psuedonym DJ T-1000 for Tresor, Submerge, Inzec and his own Generator and Pure Sonik Records labels as well as doing artwork for Djax, Astralwerks, +8, New Religion, Seventh Sign, Digital Soul and many other labels. --- Cut to 2009 and the talented Oldham's gone back to his roots as an illustrator, as well as a Detroit Techno producer, creating a graphic novel, full-color label art, and the accompanying soundtrack! This vinyl collector's version of the JOHNNY GAMBIT SOUNDTRACK features eight tracks, like the old-school LPs. But don't worry, each side is less than 15 minutes for the hottest cut possible (pre-mastered by Steven Tang of Emphasis Recordings)! Also the pressing is limited to only 200 so be quick!
