Sadly I don't do vinyl, great news anyway

I'll listen to the projects in chronological order

DJ VLR posted a playlist of four of his Drexciya mixes which imo creates a dope big picture of Drexciya & Co. Worth to check out.  

Abdul Qadim Haqq's The Book of Drexciya Vol.1 (76 page graphic novel) is out https://shop.tresorberlin.com/index.php/the-book-of-drexciya-vol-1.html https://bleep.com/merch/188686-abdul-qadim-haq

i dont have a favorite of the compilations, because imo they did that thing where they spread out the best tracks across all editions.

id almost recommend just streaming them to get a feel for the group then dive into any album or ep.  this article does a great job expaining how what they call 'revisionist' compilations are helpful to expand the audience, but problematic in narrowing the presentation of the full narrative and impact of the group (things like album art, lore, labels, motivations behind each release)

Yeah, I have to say I'm not a huge fan of this graphic style either, plus it's quite expensive; naturally preordered it anyway coz Drexciya. ?‍♂️

TBH, I see it mainly as a means to transfer some cash to JS's family and receive a little token for it.

I dream of remastered/reissued versions of their material. I mean if Elecktroids can get a new edition, maybe so can The Quest? I'd really love a box set of all Stinson & Gerald goodness though I might be the only person on the planet who would want that on CD rather than vinyl

Yeah I saw this article today. Weird how this mythology is starting to go mainstream after we’ve been following it for so long. 

 Better late than never. Some people get all huffy about the underground art, music, film, etc. they love becoming better known but I'm thankful for it. And yeah, that Ars Technica article is very good. Really touches on some important stuff with regards to depoliticizing and whitewashing a musical project whose blackness and decolonial message are so pivotal to it

Yeah my only real qualm with the article is that it really doesn’t speak too much about the music, which is timeless and exceptional.

I think I have only one Drexciya proper, Molecular Enhancement on RePHLeX. I caned Aquatic Bata [sic] Particles like mad when it came out, but I never got more into them until 10-15 years later - although I've always liked Donald and Stinson's solo alias work, especially Arpanet and Transllusion, and other collaborations like Der Zyklus, Dopplereffekt, Elecktroids, NSRB-11 (completely indispensable) and so on. I really should get Journeys Of The Deep Sea Dwellers I-IV. As an aside, I have no recollection of how, but I found Ultradyne by way of Drexciya, and Ultradyne's been more my thing during the years than Drexciya.

I forgot how good that NSRB-11 album is. Need to dig it out.

Oh I've never heard his voice before - he's definitely the one talking in 'Astronomical Guidepost'. Very distinct speech pattern

      "It appears that Clone Aqualung have a new 12" by Transllusion upcoming or even out now. The EP, A Moment of Insanity, features four tracks, 'Moment 1 - 4'.
      I presume this is more unreleased material they have been given access to. However, there is no mention of the release on any of Clone Records websites. I contacted the person who submitted it to Discogs and they told me they bought it direct from Clone's shop in Rotterdam. For now that might be the only place you can purchase it. If anyone else knows more about this mysterious release please share what you know, thanks. clone.nl"

      The Exaltics are back with new transmissions from their universe in form of the second part of "Das Heise Experiment". The first part from 2013 on Abstract Acid will see his follow up end of 2017 on 2xLP inclusive a Comic book about the story of the Heise Experiment.   This amazing looking shape picture disc, developed with the dutch artist Godspill aka Mehdi Rouchiche, is "The Prequel" release and sees The Exaltics in assault mode.    Side A brings a stomper in typical exaltics style with deep strings and a pumping bassline like an alien invasion which is on course to earth. Side B begins with a cryptic alien speech signal transmitted direct from the universe whilst the second track is a collaboration track with non other than Dopplereffekt´s Rudolf Klorzeiger. Both artists together create a timeless electro voyage with sharp snares and fast running basslines and combine their both styles perfectly together.   Every record comes with a download code for the release itself and 3 exclusive bonus tracks. This release is strictly limited to 500 copies.  The outer contour of the picture is also the contour of the record and makes this release to something really special and to a high collectable item.   pre order:
