Drexciya Submerged

Watch a short documentary on how Drexciya went underwater and then to space through their music.

Cropping up today via Resident Advisor comes this short documentary on James Stinson and Gerald Donald’s Drexciya and the underwater concept at the centre of their work. With some audio commentary from the Stinson, Donald and Techno luminaries  Jeff Mills and Stingray, RA delves briefly deep into the sci-fi, water-world of Drexciya in this documentary. There’s some interesting factoids on the origins of these concepts in black American music history – it stretches back further than you think – and the reason why Grava 4 is named Grava 4.
