Open letter to fans and listeners of Drexciya from Andrea Clementson-Stinson (2021)

We are writing to you to express our gratitude for your support through the years and to provide clarity.

The concepts and ideas of Drexciya as you know came from a basement in Detroit, Michigan in the early 90's. Some have attempted to take Drexciya's original concept and tried to make it their own or use it for their own agenda. However we can no longer remain silent as we like you to know that no one person is capable of relaying or expanding on the myth/story of Drexciya other than its creators.

Drexciya's music was never supposed to be associated with race or a race war. Techno and Electronic music brings all types of people from all world's together.

To those who seek to put a divide, we are asking you to stop/cease and desist. Outside of the music there is no other product under the name of Drexciya. This applies to comic books and any apparel baring the name Drexciya.

James Stinson's legacy is his own and it is original to him. He did not sample nor steal or exploit anyone or any music. All he did was leave an expression of his inner outer emotions through his music and his world of Drexciya.

The mystery of Drexciya will remain a mystery and I have never and will never provide authority to anyone to reveal the mystery. It is the way the creator of Drexciya left it on September 2, 2002 there was no end, no matter how many try. There were two agents of Drexciya and if it does not come from the two agents then please know that it is not legitimate.

To the record labels, UR, Clone, Tresor and Warp who have been supportive of Drexciya and both of their agents in life and in death, we want to thank you for assisting in keeping the music and legacy alive.

"L.I.F.E = Life Is Fast Ending.... so live!"
