DJ Sprinkles, real name Terre Thaemlitz, after over five years of hiatus, is back with a 30 Minute EP, titled “Deproduction EP 1“.
The two-track EP is a limited edition available via Comatonse Recordings only in vinyl and it features a new 17-minute version of “Names Have Been Changed” exploring scenes of domestic violence and the “Sprinkles’ House Arrest” mix, a sublime deep house production.
Terre Thaemlitz, who now lives in Japan, always bring gender, race, identity and sociopolitical messages in her works. He has released over 15 solo albums, as well as numerous 12-inch singles and video works.
She says: “House is not universal. House is hyper-specific: East Jersey, Loisaida, West Village, Brooklyn – places that conjure specific beats and sounds, the contexts from which the Deep House sound emerged are forgotten: sexual and gender crises, transgendered sex work, black market hormones, drug and alcohol addiction, loneliness, racism, HIV, ACT-UP, Thompkins Sq. Park, police brutality, queer-bashing, underpayment, unemployment and censorship – all at 120 beats per minute.”
