Detroit-based electro-techno pioneers Aux 88 have been pushing Motor City-influenced breakbeat electro-funk since their debut in 1993. Their extensive discography is studded with bass-heavy up-tempo party rockers that pay homage to classic Detroit sounds.
Originally made up of producer Tommy Hamilton and DJ Keith “K-1” Tucker, Aux 88 were initially inspired by the futuristic electro of Kraftwerk and Cybotron. The group’s debut release, ‘Bass Magnetic’, met with instant success, and subsequent offerings ‘My AUX Mind’ and ‘AUX Quadrant’ formed a resurgence of Detroit electro alongside similarly revered contemporaries Underground Resistance, Drexciya, and Will Web. The 00’s have seen them release several full-length projects, all met with critical and commercial acclaim: 2005’s ‘Aux 88’, 2009’s ‘Mad Scientist’ and 2010’s ‘Aux 88 Presents Black Tokyo’ have further confirmed their status as truly iconic techno visionaries.
AUX have established a worldwide reputation as one of the few American techno acts who frequently play live; they’re accompanied on stage by Direct Beat’s DJ Dijital, who, in the style of early hip-hop DJs, manipulates the group’s beats in real time, adding scratching and noisy drop-ins over rugged rhythms, funked-up basslines, and circuit-bending synth patches. In a world saturated by techno DJs, Aux 88 are holding the torch for live electronic performance, pushing improvisatory sets that evolve and change with each iteration.
