9/10 Mike Staff review, 08 August 2014

I bring this week's review odyssey to a close with this tasty reissue of a stone cold electroid techno classic, Drexciya's debut full length 'Neptune's Lair'. At this point they'd got a fair few 12"s under their belt, the first coming out seven years prior in 1992, but this 17-track voyage showcased a scope previously only hinted at.

The Detroit duo's crisp beats and coolly bubbling synth melodies still sound totally enjoyable 15 years on, and this reissue seems timely after the rest of their tragically-curtailed career has been mopped up in the excellent 'Journey of the Deep Sea Dweller' collections. The cheekily discordant synth-funk of 'Running out of Space' and the pulsating bleep'n'drone attack of 'Universal Element' and the twisted disco strut of 'Funk Release Valve' still exude the same playful cool they always did. Whether or not you were there at the time, this is a life-affirming listen.
