Tresor really lead the way with their reissues, and 'Neptune's Lair' was an album begging to be given another airing. Drexciya (the late, great James Stinson and Gerald Donald/ Dopplereffekt) first emerged from the underwater gloom in 1989. Under the encoded myth of a Drexciyan race of underwater dwellers descended from pregnant slave women thrown overboard during trans-Atlantic deportation they hid. Within this fiction, their music - which they claimed was recorded "live in the studio" rather than programmed - was imagined as a "dimensional jumphole" between their black African roots and the contemporary USA. Neptune's Lair is their flawless document in sound, first issued in 1999, its knock on influence unheralded, its genius ready to inspire a new generation. Necessary music.
