Terre Thaemlitz's Deep Thoughts with Resident Advisor's Editor

This particular interview is so interesting and in-depth that I haven't even had the chance to finish watching it. Terre Thaemlitz has been better known, recently, as DJ Sprinkles - the artist who produced the #1 electronic music album of 2009, according to Resident Advisor. I'm not alone in admitting that this album completely passed across my radar until it was dubbed the king of last year, and I immediately fell in love with it. Twenty-ten is the year of deep house as far as I'm concerned, and no matter how prevalent house has been in both New York and electronic music's rich history I regard its currently coined "renaissance" as truth.

The few things I knew about Terre is that he'd been a long-time house producer/DJ in New York for years, and is currently living in Japan. Not Tokyo, but outside in the country in a gorgeous atmosphere that breeds his unique creativity. He's also a transvestite. Or maybe transgendered, but I've not dug that deep. He is highly opinionated and has perspectives on house and music in general that are obscure, different and thought-provoking. Interviewing him here is Todd Burns, the editor of Resident Advisor, whom I believe to be a major reason behind the increased (increasing) quality of RA's content over the last few years.

Basically, if you are a fan of music in any way, shape or form, this video is worth watching.
