DJ Sprinkles Readies Protest Mix for Mule Musiq
- Words: James Eaton
House experimentalist and all-around musical firebrand Terre Thaemlitz (a.k.a. DJ Sprinkles) has put together a new DJ mix for Japanese label Mule Musiq which was conceived and executed as a protest against the country's archaic, "anti-dancing" fuzoku laws. Called Where Dancefloors Stand Still, the forthcoming mix album is said to "transform dancing into a ritual in which dancers do rhythmic body painting that amalgamates the individual identity into a collective," with a range of classic and contemporary body-moving sounds from the likes of Fingers Inc., Trentemoller, Lectroluv, and others. DJ Sprinkle's mix will arrive on March 25 as 14-track CD (with a nine-song, double-12" sampler to follow soon after), but you can check out its artwork and tracklist before then, below.
