Late 1999 release, available again. "The first sightings of the nebulous Detroit techno/electro outfit Drexciya began during 1991, forming close ties with Underground Resistance and Submerge, 'wreaking immediate havoc on the Programmers.' With an encoded agenda and socio-political mission aimed at the world, the latest page of Drexciya's grand history is about to be written on Tresor Records entitled Neptune's Lair, featuring twenty-one all-new and exclusive tracks. Drexciya is the sound of originality embodying all the musical styles and history that Detroit the city has seen and been part of. Drexciya is music for change and defies categorization; traditionally armed with freestyle electro, techno, funk, and jazz while covering an entire spectrum of moods ranging from the dark, foreboding 'Intro' to the shimmering beauty of 'Polymono Plexusgel.' While words won't do Neptune's Lair proper justice, rootsy Kraftwerkian techno ('Universal Element' and 'Oxyplasmic Gyration Beam'), gives way to G-style electro ('Fusion Flats' and 'Andreaen Sand Dunes'), while jazzy freestyle funk ('Running Out of Space' and 'Funk Release Valve') evolves alongside classic 4/4 club sound ('Species of the Pod', 'Devil Ray Cove' and 'Lost Vessel'). Although the roots run deep, Neptune's Lair heralds an important new chapter in the musical connections between Detroit's finest and Tresor."
