The July edition of THUNDER brings DJ SPRINKLES aka Terre Thaemlitz to London to play a 4 hour set in the UK for first time.
There so much to say about Terre, it’s difficult to know where to start. American born, she cut her teeth as DJ on the ballroom scene in New York in the early 1990s, when she also set up Comatonse Recordings, a label which has seen her release a hugely diverse range of productions, from concept-driven ambient works through to straight up house bangers, under a number of different aliases. Now based in Japan, in 2009 she released critically acclaimed album 'Midtown 120 Blues' as DJ Sprinkles, her male DJing persona. It’s an album that was highly regarded at the time, Resident Advisor rating it as the album of the year, but subsequently it fast becoming regarded as seminal and is now set for a long-overdue deluxe re-release in the next few days.
Listening to the album it is clear that DJ Sprinkles is an electronic music producer with a message, someone who has something to say, passionate about music and the cultural significance of the music itself and the scene from which those sounds were born. Sprinkles is also passionate about DJing, drawn out mixes that let the music breath are preferred and that’s why we’ve asked her to play 4 hours, a first for a London set, so people can hear what she’s really all about, in the intimacy of of London's best small venue, Dance Tunnel.
Support provided by Miles Simpson & Rick Hopkins.
