    I'm becoming increasingly fanatical about this group and the mystery that surrounds them. I don't think anyone will ever surpass their music. The west has completely neglected the African music tradition but these guys merged the old beats with new instrumentation to create something completely new. Technoanimism is the closest word I can find to describe their sound. Machines, but not soulless. Sometimes I wonder if the meat that builds the factories has less life in it than the things it manufactures. Your iDevice is beyond good or evil and does only what it was meant to do, it is blameless. We possess the capacity to create beauty and do nothing with it, preferring instead to snuff out life-potential and pursue vulgar self-indulgence. The fact that we can do good, but do not is ultimately what makes humans so vile. Drexciya breathed life into their obedient machines and created beautiful forms, as any wise creator does.
