dj sprinkles: where dancfloors stand still

It seems like young people in Japan can't dance like crazy anymore because of the growing threats of the strange Fuzoku law -- one of the most surreal in Japan's legal system, the origins of which go back to 1948. The law deals with restrictions concerning the sale of sex and businesses of similar type. Due to the ambiguous way of reading it, the law also deals with nightclubs and related establishments that allow customers to dance. Especially in the last two years, clubs all over Japan have suffered under the authorities who often strictly enforce a 1 AM curfew deducted from an archaic adult entertainment law. Instead of moaning and stopping the dance, Mule Musiq is ready to raise a protest with DJ Sprinkles. Today, dancing is one of the most perfect ways to express emotion, social interaction, and spiritual communication and Where Dancefloors Stand Still spreads music to devoted dancers who will love to share all they have to reveal. Who knows better about revealing emotions on the dancefloor than Terre Thaemlitz -- internationally-acclaimed writer, public speaker, multimedia producer, DJ, audio producer, and head honcho of Comatonse Recordings. His deep house alias DJ Sprinkles has been beloved ever since he first started playing in the gay clubs of midtown Manhattan and New Jersey in the late '80s and early '90s -- a time when deep house began to take shape. After the scene got famous and landed hard, DJ Sprinkles embarked to Japan where he held a three-year residency at Tokyo's Club Module from 2003 till 2006. In January 2009, he released his album Midtown 120 Blues (MUSIQ 009CD), which was hailed as one of the most essential house albums of the last few years. His new DJ mix intends to free Japan's clubs from the Fuzoku law restrictions and to move your hips, too. The mix takes off with a Chicago deep house classic from 1992: Braxton Holmes' debut EP "12 Inches of Pleasure" -- here rendered in Ron Trent's super-sweet foreplay mix. His deepness merges gently into Alex Danilov's house hug "Deep S," and then dives deep into house science and swings between the decades without losing the flow. Then there are classics such as "I Can't Forget" from Sound Mechanix, "The Dip" by The Rude Awakening, and legendary trio Fingers Inc. with "Never No More Lonely." In between, are soulful arrangements like "Forestfunk I" from Understars, "Everybody's Talkin'" by Mymy, and "The Deep" from Manoo & François. The mix grooves with DJ Sprinkles' trippy mixing signature that playfully melts tracks that are built from flying piano notes, tactile bass lines, kicking drums, and layered samples. If your dancefloor stands still, too, here comes about 80 minutes of house deepness that will make it swing. The album artwork comes from Emi Winter -- an artist from Oaxaca, Mexico. Other artists include: The Rhythm Slaves, Trentemøller, Lectroluv, Classic Man, Gene Farris, The Rude Awakening, Choo-Ables and Keys & Tronics Ensemble.
