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!

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.     

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.

Glass Domain
Glass Domain

This Glass Domain material is doubly hard to find: both the initial 1991 test pressings and the 2003 Clone re-pressing are long out-of-print. So Clone have fired up the vinyl plants once more. Glass Domain is the work of Gerald Donald (of Drexciya and Dopplereffekt), and it positively fizzes with creative electro energy, even today!

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.

L.A.M.
Balance of Terror

The name on the wax is L.A.M. (Life After Mutation), but the Detroit heads among you will know who lurks behind that moniker: this is basically the first ever Drexciya release! Deleted for a long time, this reissue on Clone Aqualung Series brings the Balance Of Terror back into action. And god damn, this is hard-hitting, dancefloor-dominating stuff.

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.

30drop meets Arpanet
Phases EP

30D Records (Terrence Dixon) bag arguably their biggest release to date with a drop from Drexciya/Dopplereffekt mainstay Gerald Donald’s Arpanet project as well as two tunes from label-boss 30Drop. The imprint's drops have always had quite the sci-fi flavour to them, and Phases does nothing to upset the apple cart. Four bleep-bloop odysseys here which find a midpoint between electro, braindance and Detroit techno.
