Jrd will bring you a special session on Drexciya.
Detroit electro-techno outfit Drexciya was conceived in 1989, but first came into the public eye in 1994 with “Aquatic Invasion” – the first of a thematic series of releases. Drexciya’s James Stinson and Gerald Donald remained hidden behind their alias for much of the group’s existence, communicating a complex personal mythology of a “Drexciyan” race of underwater dwellers descended from pregnant slave women thrown overboard during trans-Atlantic deportation. Within this fiction, their music – which they claimed was recorded “live in the studio” rather than programmed – was imagined as a “dimensional jumphole” between their black African roots and the contemporary USA.
