Drexciya was an American electronic music duo from Detroit, Michigan, consisting of James Stinson (1969 - 2002 and Gerald Donald.

The majority of Drexciya's releases were in the style of internal linkdancefloor-oriented electro, punctuated with elements of retro, internal link1980s Detroit techno, with occasional excursions into the internal linkambient and industrial genres. Tracks were mostly centered around the Roland TR-808 drum machine.

Drexciya, which eschewed media internal linkattention and its attendant internal linkfocus on personality, developed an afrofuturist myth to internal linkmap their music and namesake to. The group revealed in the sleeve notes to their 1997 album The Quest that "Drexciya" was an internal linkunderwater country populated by the unborn children of pregnant African women who were thrown off of slave ships; the babies had adapted to breathe underwater in their mothers' wombs. The myth was built partly on Paul Gilroy's The Black Atlantic: Modernity and Double internal linkConsciousness (1993), according to British-Ghanaian writer and theorist Kodwo Eshun, who also explored Drexciya's aesthetic in a section of his renowned book, More Brilliant than the internal linkSun: Adventures in Sonic Fiction (1998).

In 1997, Drexciya released a compilation album, The Quest. The duo released three studio albums, Neptune's Lair (1999), Harnessed the Storm (2002), and Grava 4 (2002).
