JOIN US for this night-long conversation and DJ-set featuring Terre Thaemlitz’s underground deep house moniker DJ Sprinkles addresses DJ-ing as a vital discursive act. Nurtured in New York’s queer and transgender sex worker clubs in the late 1980’s and early 90’s, DJ Sprinkles’ work manifests itself as a form of deep sonic critique, while also being downright danceable. Intersecting the smooth, synthetic surfaces of deep house music with an oftentimes harshly formulated discourse on gender, sexuality, and class; the music offers a hyper-specific, analytical reading of the socio-economics of music production and DJ-ing.Throughout the conversation and DJ-set that compose CRYING IN THE CLUB, Thaemlitz’s work as DJ Sprinkles will be approached on an analytical level, opening up its essayistic dimensions.
