Abdul Qadim Haqq
The Book of Drexciya Vol. 1

The first five chapters of Abdul Qadim Haqq’s Drexciyan odyssey, developed out of the mythology created by Detroit techno outfit Drexciya and concerning an underwater nation populated by the babies of pregnant African women who were thrown off of slave ships, are commemorated in this 76-page hardcover graphic novel. 

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.

Drexciya
Grava 4

2002’s ‘Grava 4’, the final Drexciya LP, only deepened the aura of mystery around this singular group. If you don't know the full story we suggest that you read up on it - it's a fascinating mythology, one of dance music’s most vital Afrofuturist narratives. As well as worldbuilding, Drexciya also made some damn fine music in their time. ‘Grava 4’ goes easy on the machine-gun basslines and broken 808 beats in comparison to some of their other records, but this gap is filled by some of the duo’s richest and most evocative production.

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. 

The Other People Place
Lifestyles Of The Laptop Café

The long wished-for repress of Lifestyles of the Laptop Café finally materialises, fifteen years after the late James Stinson of Drexciya renown released the classic anonymously as the Other People Place on Warp. It’s a seamless, calming and moving piece of downtempo electronica that has become a key album in dance music history, and should well be a staple item in any home listening fan’s collection with its renewed availability.

Drexciya
Journey Of The Deep Sea Dweller I

The early works of the legendary techno outfit Drexciya released on 2LP so you can delve deep into its immersive and abstract glory. The duo were a mysterious outfit with no public persona or image preferring to let the music speak for itself. The result was a kind of aquatic drift that explored the darker side of both techno and Detroit the city in which they grew up. Essential.

Alternative mixes of old Drexciya favourites have been located, and since it would be a shame not to have the world hear them, Black Sea and Wavejumper’s Aqualung Versions have been pressed to vinyl. These mixes sound as future-slick as you could desire, and a third track, ‘Unknown Journey XI’ is added to sweeten the deal.

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.
