Remastered by Matt Colton... So why Tresor did not remaster Neptune's Lair and Transllusion album? Lost master tapes?

Undersea Disturbances is a lovely bubbly (both positive and aquatic in this sense) while Aquatic Cataclysm sounds like being in the deepest, darkest depths of the ocean with all those flashlight and anglerfish.
Lake Haze is the most conventional Electro track here although still very Drexciyan in approach.
The moody and higly emotional Birth of New Life concludes the journey.

Drexciya were so brilliant to come up with tracks like these. It's a great shame we will never hear any more wonderful music from this duo.

This is another brilliant album produced by Drexciya. The first of many Storms released shorty after another.

The tracks on this album are very diverse. Off corse all of them have the specific Drexciyan sound. The record kicks of with Digital Tsunami, a great track to start things of; it is very enjoyable to listen. The other tracks are darker they take you into the deep sea, a very interesting world to listen to. The album closes with two phenomenal tracks; Mission to Ociya Syndor and back is a very hard and organic track. I can't help imagining how it would feel to hear this track live on a party, the whole place will freak out! The very last track is called Under sea disturbances, the only track on the D side. It is a long mysteriuos downtempo track, just beautiful. Everytime I listen to this album it gets better and better, it is a masterpiece.

This album doesn't sound anything like the other Storms, it is an unique record...definately a must have.

Drexciya returns with another album of underwater Detroit electro, <I>Harnessed the Storm</I>. As always, the production values are outstanding -- the synths are well-modulated, the percussion exact. Here, as on other albums, they seem to favor a staticky, bubbly hi-hat, which only adds to the whole underwater feel. “Digital Tsunami” has the force of a storm, while “Dr. Blowfins’ Black Storm Stabilizing Sphere” sounds exactly like the name describes. “Lake Haze” goes for a more straightforward electro feel (one of the few tracks that could make its way onto the dancefloor), but atmosphere -- or should I say liquisphere? -- is the order of the day. Dive on in. The water’s fine.

Let's focus on the music again. For me this is another great Drexciya release - and let me add that it took me a long time to get into Drexciya. So to those not quite getting Drexciya I recommend patient persistance. The album - very different from the equally brilliant Neptune's Layer on Tresor. This album is more subtle and less melodic. Rhythms and atmospheres that really create a world of their own. All inspired! Every track has a deep feeling to convey. Let me just mention Undersea Disturbances - the mysterious and beautiful power of the sea!!! An album that can transport you to the deepest depths of the ocean is to be experienced. Buy this album with confidence. Quality music so often grows with each listening - this has been my Drexciya experience.

Here is a record you can listen to at home : these melodic electro and ambient tracks describe an aquatic world undergoing a cataclysm. From the warning to the reconstruction, this introspective music provides emotion...
