Kawasaki-based DJ Sprinkles, aka Terre Thaemlitz, has long been outspoken on gender and identity issues and is credited with pioneering a politicized take on ambient in the early 1990s. Recently, Where Dance Floors Stand Still tackled Japan’s anti-dancing law, which has been blighting the country’s nightclubs over the past few years. The record, filled with deep house cuts, seemed to dare listeners to defy a law that could have them arrested for dancing after midnight. Lucky, then, for Brooklyn, that Sprinkles’ Cameo Gallery appearance is part of their “All Night Long” series.
