Don't really get Drexciya tbh. They are ok. I like the ethos. Music is not as good as Jeff. What really pisses me off is the cult around them and all the t shirt lads. It's fake devotion

I like everything Gerald Donald and James Stinson have ever done :D
Being able to take pleasure in things is a great gift and I'm not here to snatch it away from you. A thousand blessings and may you continue to love the music of Drexciya for the rest of your days.

This is IMO one of the greatest tunes ever made.

I think what really separates drexciya out from most techno/electro I've heard is the emotional mood their music creates. The combination of the sorts of sounds they use and the harmonics, it's (to be cliched about it) an alien sound, where you get glimpses of human beauty/emotion coming through but all filtered through this dry, brittle, elegant, alien soundgridfasfkanfklns.

I'M JUST FARTING OUT WORDS.

But there's a kernel of truth there.

worst tune no idea why its famous. check live at liquid room tokyo 1995 thats good. my techno listening is pretty much defined by him, cos he was playing out at the time i was going out. i saw him at sonar 2001 and some cheerleaders came out. in this huge expo hall thing. so packed and everyone fucked and happy. there was a little spanish guy who had a small chair and everyone got to have a go standing on it. someone had a slash on the dancefloor and no-one gave a fuck. was surreal.i don't really listen to him anymore, but that CD was a goodun. my mate lent it me and i lent i lost it, he had to buy it again.
