Born Gerald Donald, he first adopted the alias Heinrich Mueller in tribute to German proto-techno, then joined the late James Stinson to helm mysterious electro-aquatic under the name Drexciya. These days, as Dopplereffekt, he continues banging out sophisticated minimal electro with real or imagined collaborators. Fellow Midwesterner Solvent brings an Aphex Twin-ly love of synths to Ghostly International. And duck-obsessed Sebastien Reidl cofounded Areal; as Basteroid he concocts the Cologne label’s quirkiest and more acidic tracks.
