All of the releases in the series, which kicks off in September, will come with new cover art

Tresor has announced plans to reissue the back catalogue of Drexciya, the electro project of Detroit duo Gerald Donald and the late James Stinson.

Kicking off in September with 1999's Neptune's Lair, Tresor is reissuing the classic releases to mark the 20th anniversary of Stinson's death. Each reissue will come with new artwork by Detroit-based sculptor Matthew Angelo Harrison, and all will be made available across vinyl, CD and digital formats.

The Hydro Doorways EP from 2000 will follow Neptune's Lair, and then Tresor will reissue the 2002 album Harnessed The Storm and 2001 EP Digital Tsunami. In February 2023, the label will turn its focus to Stinson's solo LP as Transllusion, The Opening Of The Cerebral Gate, as well as as the EP, Mind Over Positive And Negative Dimensional Matter. The series rounds off in March 2023 with a reissue of 2002's The Cosmic Memoirs Of The Late Great Rupert J. Rosinthrope, an album made under Stinson's Shifted Phases alias.

The series comes amid a flurry of activity for Tresor as the Berlin techno institution marks its 31st anniversary this summer with a two-month festival taking place across the venue's various spaces.

Tresor will release Neptune's Lair on September 2, 2022.
