“Deep house idol, queer theorist, media manipulator, seasoned contrarian – Terre Thaemlitz (alias DJ Sprinkles) operates in a field of one.” – FACT
Terre Thaemlitz (1968) is an award winning multi-media producer, writer, public speaker, educator, audio remixer, DJ and owner of the Comatonse Recordings record label.

He has released over 15 solo albums, as well as numerous 12-inch singles and video works. Her writings on music and culture have been published internationally in a number of books, academic journals and magazines.

“Transgendered performer, legendary House DJ, artistic intellectual and creator of a number of celebrated classic releases, Thaemlitz is easily amongst the most interesting and bravest of contemporary musicians and for that reason an asset to any artistic movement.” – Halcyonline - Albert Freeman, on Terre Thaemlitz's performance of "Soulnessless" at Issue Project Room in June 2011.
