There’s no question that Terre Thaemlitz AKA DJ Sprinkles is one of the most fascinating, talented and unique figures in the electronic music community. Known as much for her intelligent and thought-provoking critique of sexuality, ethnicity and modern society as she is for grooving deep house, captivating ambient compositions and experimental digital jazz, her role extends far beyond that of your average producer.
Since the early ’90s, her music has ventured through these various styles and sounds under a number of monikers, including her real name, resulting in a hugely prolific and eclectic discography that’s found its way onto labels like Comatonse, Mille Plateaux and her new home Mule Musiq.
For more than a decade and, particularly over the past five years, Thaemlitz has been actively making and playing some of the finest deep house around under the Sprinkles alias: her debut artist LP under this name, “Midtown 120 Blues”, was ranked as Resident Advisor’s #1 album of 2009, while the site also described her most recent mix CD for Mule as “something approaching perfection.” Her latest offering, a double-album of DJ Sprinkles remixes titled “Queerifications & Ruins”, again shows off her versitility and ability to create total dance floor weapons which keep dancers coming back for more the world over. After more than 20 years, it’s an honour to have one of electronic music’s most remarkable figures come to Australia to party with us for only the second time.
