Drexciya - The Journey Home
Although Drexciya was technically two people, it's believed James Stinson (also with Elecktroids, well, both members were actually), who has since passed, did the majority of the production. Gerald Donald, the other member, continues to make music under different aliases. Like many techno artists, Drexciya primarily concealed their identities until their demise. Although they would do interviews, they were known to conduct them hidden under Star Trek masks. The Journey Home is Warp release, which in itself should be proof that I'm posting a solid record. They're responsible for releases from Aphex Twin, Autechre, and Flying Lotus, just to name a few. Drexciya are well-worth listening to in depth and their originality and creativity are tough to match.
