Biography

Born on September 14, 1969, James Stinson grew up on Detroit’s east side and graduated from Kettering in 1989. He died September 3, 2002 of heart complications in Newnan, Georgia, where he had moved earlier that year for health reasons. A memorial service was held at the James H. Cole Funeral Home, 2624 W. Grand Blvd., Detroit.

“Now there’s a whole resurgence of electro, and James was the life force of it. He had a fascination with the ocean, and aquatic things, and African-American history, and the voyage African people had to make. He was fascinated with the strength and endurance you have to have to make a voyage. His best feature was that good enough wasn’t enough. He always pushed the envelope. Even at UR, where pushing the envelope is the norm, he pushed it harder than any artist on the label. He would expect us to keep living on the edge.” Mad Mike Banks

“I was just informed today that one of my UR brothers is not with us anymore. James “Drexciya” Stinson died last night of heart complication… It is a big loss for his friends, fans, and family. He will be greatly missed. One of the true brothers of the Underground.”
