DJ Sprinkles and Mark Fell have collaborated on a new EP, entitled Complete Spiral.

On first glance it might seem like a surprising partnership, but in fact it makes a lot of sense. Sprinkles is the deep house alias of New York’s Terre Thaemlitz (pictured), whose work under his own name tends towards the more abstract, arty end of electronic music – territory shared with Mark Fell. Yorkshireman Fell is one half of SND, who for over a decade have been stretching dance music forms to conceptual and literal breaking point on releases for Mille Plateaux, their own eponymous imprint, Raster-Noton and most recently PAN. This year has seen Fell engage more directly with his love of house music, with a brace of 12″s on his custom Editions Mego sub-label Sensate Focus.

Complete Spiral arrives as three-track 12″ on Thaemlitz’s Comatonse label. On the face of it, it’s quite straightforward house – with a clear debt, in its heavy bass and rugged, low-slung drums, to the classic New York sounds of Nu Groove – but closer inspection reveals a wealth of eccentric, exacting detail.
