Drexciya’s James Stinson worked under a number of aliases outside of his seminal electro project with Gerald Donald. We recently looked at The Other People Place, and today another identity comes under the lens.
Stinson only released one album as Shifted Phases, the imaginatively titled ‘The Cosmic Memoirs Of The Late Great Rupert J. Rosinthrope’. One of the album’s best tunes, Lonely Journey Of The Comet Bopp, has everything that made Stinson’s softer side so magical: taut electro rhythms, a menacing low-end and those strange, tender synth notes that glisten like pearls. Electro has often seemed like a particularly cerebral zone of the dance spectrum, but Stinson had a knack for evoking human emotions in his alien voyages.
