Discover the music of Drexciya with a playlist compiled exclusively for Morley Radio by Drexciya Research Lab.
The secretive Detroit electronic music duo Drexciya are revered not only for their emotive electro productions, but for the Drexciyan mythos they created – an underwater race descended from the unborn children of African women thrown overboard from slave ships to drown.
While Drexciya ended with the death of James Stinson in 2002 their influence lives on, not only musically, but as pioneers of Afrofuturism, a movement that uses literature and the arts to explore alternative realities for the African diaspora.
Drexciya issued numerous releases under other names, some as a duo, some solo, others unclear. Surviving member Gerald Donald (aka Heinrich Mueller aka Rudolf Klorzeiger) continues to sonically innovate operating under a plethora of pseudonyms.
