Clone announce the third installment of Drexciya’s Deep Sea Dweller reissue series
Drexciya are simply one the most influential techno acts of all time. Although the late James Stinson was the only officially identified member of the group, it was a well known fact that Gerald Donald made up the other half of the duo. Drexciya’s Detroit flavoured take on electro music was centred around the TR-808 drum machine and raw, analogue synthesis; with their live approach to sequencing these sounds becoming the essence of that ‘proper electro’ sound. They released material on labels such as Underground Resistance, Clone, Rephlex, Hardwax, WARP, Submerge and Tresor.
The journey continues this December as Clone’s Classic Cuts release ‘Journey of the Deep Sea Dweller III’, which contains everything that we love about Drexciya: thunderous 808 drums, squelching bass, sci-fi ambience and that irresistible industrial rigor. Preview the release below:
‘Journey of the Deep Sea Dweller’III will be released on December 3rd via Clone
