martin oldgoth writes his name in lower case, he likes it like that.
There are not many DJ's in the goth and dark alt scenes for whom the word 'infamous' can be used but martin oldgoth is one of them. Starting in 1985, over the years he has built a reputation that today sees him at the forefront of his field, and the DJ of choice for many special events.
This has seen him called upon to DJ the 25th anniversary Batcave reunion for Specimen, and to work alongside such leading names as Alien Sex Fiend at both their 25th & 30th anniversary shows, The Mission UK for the 25th Anniversary homecoming aftershow party and again for a number of their 30th anniversary shows.
Over the years he has worked at events as far afield as Wave Gotik Treffen (DE), Bats Day (US), The Whitby Goth Weekend (UK), A Murder of Crows (US) as well as several UK, Euro & US clubs. In 2014 he toured with the The Last Cry & Strap on Halo, playing six dates across the US. 2015 saw him celebrate 30 years, with a series of select shows, both in the UK and overseas in Europe and the US. 2016 saw an eight date European tour with The Last Dance, The Last Cry and Strap on Halo. 2020 sees him celebrating 35 years with no sign of stopping just yet
martin oldgoth spins goth, post punk and dark stuff he thinks people might like. He currently co-runs Mondlicht, a quarterly club night in London
As you can imagine, with clubs and festivals being cancelled all around the world the 35th Anniversary tour I had planned is slowly getting smaller, I'm leaving dates showing as going ahead until I hear otherwise but I think right now it's quite likely the celebrations will be extended into 2021! Stay safe everyone, see you on the other side of all this, take care.

Join me as I celebrate 35 years in this little dark scene of our, and work with a host of people who work hard to keep things fresh and exciting, who hold in their hearts the same set of values that bind us together as one family of misfits, renegades if you will, dancing in solidarity.
