The acclaimed project of Gerald Donald and james Stinson is set to be revisited with re-conceptualised, rights approved, special editions of several releases.

Tresor has announced that it will re-release music from the Drexciya back catalogue in new special edition formats celebrating the project in honour of James Stinson’s passing twenty years ago.

Starting later this year the label will release a series of newly commissioned versions of each release featuring new artwork from Detroit-based artist Matthew Angelo Harrison, who teamed up with graphic designer Yannick Nuss and photographer Corine Vermeulen, to produce new album art for each release.

Drexciya remains one of the most pivotal and influential groups in electronic music history having inspired a generation of new artists and listeners to dig deeper and challenge the preconceptions of both techno and electro.


The series starts bimonthly from early September 2022, commencing with ‘Neptune’s Lair’, first out in 1999, with the ‘Hydro Doorways’ single arriving shortly after. In November 2022, ‘Harnessed The Storm’ & ‘Digital Tsunami’ are coming. In February 2023 the Transllusion records, both ‘The Opening Of The Cerebral Gate’ & complement single ‘Mind Over Positive And Negative Dimensional Matter’, will be released. The series is completed by the long-awaited re-release of Shifted Phases ‘The Cosmic Memoirs Of The Late Great Rupert J. Rosinthrope’ – at the end of March 2023.

The series has been approved by the rightsholders and families with the project set to act as a recognition of the great body of Drexciya’s work.
