“DJ Sprinkles is Terre Theamlitz’s deep house persona, forever influenced by Manhattan’s 1980s club scene. He insists that club music grew out of struggle, which makes it inherently political: “the house nation likes to pretend clubs are an oasis from suffering…but suffering is in here, with us.” Dealing with sadness, pain, the threat of sudden violence and the fleeting promise of escape in a club, house, at once euphoric and subdued, proves that it can be deep; not just in terms of its sound, but politically and intellectually so.
