Drexciya
Harnessed The Storm

One of the most revered techno acts of all time, Drexciya were mysterious, near anonymous and blended futuristic beat work with Afro influences resulting in a kind of underwater dance music. Harnessed the Storm was their second full length album and is one of their most intense works blending sci-fi influenced electro with uncompromising rhythms. Truly legendary. 

Drexciya
Hydro Doorways

The “Hydro Doorways” EP was originally released in 2000. It's long out of print and in dire need of a reissue. Here it is! This compliments of the Neptune's Lair LP and could be described as a sister release. Gerald Donald and James Stinson were at the height of their game when this baby was originally released and fans of techno unite in their love of all things Drexciyan. Genius lads!

Dopplereffekt
Cellular Automata

Exciting times afoot as Dopplereffekt announce their first full-length album release in a decade! Cellular Automata is an album derived from various mathematical processes, but still maintaining the crucial power you’d expect from a Gerald Donald (also of Drexciya!) project. LP in eye-warping sleeve on Leisure System.

Drexciya
Digital Tsunami

Sadly ‘electro’ is now all too often synonymous with mostly terrible stuff -- electroclash, electro swing, etc. Well, Drexciya was electro at its best - hard, dark, and fast. As a new wave of young producers are obviously going back to these roots -- a quick listen to Objekt’s Flatland, one of the best records of 2014, is testament to this -- it’s nice to see Tresor reissuing this on 12”. Keep an eye out for Tresor’s upcoming reissue of Drexciya’s double-LP ‘Harness the Storm’, too.

Dopplereffekt
Athanatos

‘Athanatos’ is the New 12” from techno/electro project Dopplereffekt - featuring one half of the legendary Drexciya - a five-track release that follows on from last years stellar ‘Cellular Automata’. All dour-dystopian-grind, this new EP finds the duo in far more overtly rhythmic territory than last years full length, which arrived a whole decade after their last full album. It's typically lysergic stuff from true dance auteurs.     

Elecktroids
Elektroworld

Would it surprise you to learn that Elektroworld by Elecktroids is electro? I hope not. The long sought after 1995 album has now been reissued on Clone Classic Cuts after decades in the Discogs wastes. Supposedly the work of Drexciya's Gerald Donald and James Stinson, this is an album of Kraftwerk inspired electro that is always assuredly Detroit.

Elecktroids
Kilohertz

Long sought after and deeply missed EP from Kraftwerk inspired electro duo Elecktroids. Likely the work of Gerald Donald and James Stinson who you  probably know as Drexciya. The original version of Kilohertz on Warp featured a paltry four tracks to Clone Aqualung Series' five. Worthwhile if only for that feat of musical archaeology.

XOR Gate
Conic Sections

Tresor present yet another alias from Heinrich Mueller - real name Gerald Donald. The legendary Detroit producer has been behind some of the most impressive, immersive and cutting-edge electronic music to emerge from the motor city; Dopplereffekt, Drexciya, Elecktroids, Arpanet,Der Zyklus, Glass Domain, Intellitronic, Japanese Telecom, Rudolf Klorzeiger, Z Therapy, Abstract Thought, Daughter Produkt, Flexitone, Gedankenexperiment, L.A.M., NRSB-11, Zerkalo, Zwischenwelt. This new project is a single 30-minute piece which was originally commissioned by ArtCenter South Florida in Miami. If you skipped geometry class, fear not as Donald's sounds require no understanding of his concepts to be enjoyed. Sit back as three dimensional shapes plot new trajectories as they emerge from the speakers.

Der Zyklus
Renormalon

Gerald Donald has put out work under many well-known monikers, including Dopplereffekt, Elecktroids and being one half of Drexciya. With Der Zyklus he has collaborated with Elena Sizova as well as Dr Olga Karelkina to create this mini album based around the Renormalon physics principle. The result is spacious and foreboding electronic swells.

Der Zyklus
Biometry

Reissued from the DUB back catalogue, Biometry by Der Zyklus takes techno legend Heinrich Mueller’s deep sounds beyond his Dopplereffekt work and into new experimental realms. Perfect for fans of Drexciya and Arpanet and leftfield techno in general. Out on vinyl double LP and CD from Clone Agualung Series.
