This is the second installment from Terre Thaemlitz (aka DJ Sprinkles) and Mark Fell’s collaboration; you can find the first installment by clicking right here. DJ Sprinkles, if you’re not familiar, is a pioneer in the world of deep house and Mark Fell is an accomplished producer in his own right, releasing work under Sensate Focus, Blir, .h and, well, his own name prior to this. DJ Sprinkles gave unto us alternate takes on “Fresh” and “Insights” and it appears, this time around, that proclaimed Socialist firebrand Tony Benn gets much more of the spotlight this time around; even if you don’t agree with him politically, it is interesting to hear how that political sect thinks. “Fresh” is just good ol’ deep house, with its dub techno elements turned up a notch; this track is best enjoyed with a drink by the side your large pool in the evening when you have some company over. Check out both tracks below via the Boomkat player and see what you think of them. The last volume is gone, physically, already so don’t sleep on this. Cheers!


The Details

DJ Sprinkles serves alternate, killer mixes of his massive ‘Fresh Insights’ session with Mark Fell (and Tony Benn).

The future-classic B-side, ‘Fresh’ is given a slinkier rub-down by the Tokyo-based artist, propping *that* rousing speech by Socialist firebrand Tony Benn on a subtly reshuffled groove that surely marks up as one of the biggest deep house curveballs since, oh, at least their ‘Complete Spiral’ EP starring Arthur Scargill in 2012.

Flipside, ‘Insights’ is also given the alternate DJ Sprinkles mix treatment, shying away from the sharper hi-hats of the original mix with Mark Fell in favour of supple congas and louche bass linked with a web of gossamer keys and beckoning diva coos. Worry not if you missed the sold-out 1st volume: this one’s a total killer.

Price $13.81
