Will Long & DJ Sprinkles - Purple/Blue (2xLP)
We live in an era when "change" is a soundbite to sell more of the same old ideas, and "revolution" has more to do with social trends than social change. Will Long's deep house debut on Terre Thaemlitz's Comatonse Recordings examines that pack of lies dubbed "change" from the sweaty dancefloor, sounding the aftermath of failure around attempts at equality in "progressive" societies.
Made with a simple setup of rhythm composer percussion, polyphonic synth chords, and rack sampler vocals, these tracks have a minimal rawness that contends we've been wrong the whole time about how far the US -- and the world -- has come. Although they are sonically unlike anything Long has produced as Celer or his other aliases for minimal and ambient experimental audio, they share a stripped-yet-full sound that reacts against overproduction -- within the dance music industry, and societies at large.
DJ Sprinkles' overdubbed contributions quite literally and psycho-acoustically resonate that intention, tactfully rending a farther, lush physicality and soulfulness through deftly applied daubs of glutinous sub-bass pressure, airy strings, and subtly shimmering FX, really bringing Long's tracks to life in a whole other dimension; and via disciplined, stripped-down, full-bodied production values that rank as perhaps the deepest productions yet in the Sprinkles' canon.
They could be taken as a call for humbleness and meditative efficiency over cliched buildups and preening vanities, perhaps a comment on "deep" house as the equivalent of a fresh tattoo or sweatshop t-shirt slogan. Because, you know, it really does stand for a lot more. Tsuji Aiko has provided illustrations of the activists sampled featured on the front and back covers. Mastered by Terre Thaemlitz, cut by Dubplates & Mastering.
