Review: AUX88 Bass Magnetic re-Issue 1993-2018. Back by popular demand, the same unique spirits that brought forth the
sound of Detroit streets and turned it into the futuristic soundscape known as "Techno-Bass", The Original members
have collaborated to re-issue their catalog 25+ years later. Starting with their 1st double pack LP, "Bass Magnetic"
(considered to be a mesh of influences between Miami bass and Detroit techno), AUX88 established themselves in an
effort to stay true to their roots in the streets and the clubs creating their own genre into a global dance culture. After
the release and production of their own documentary ("AUX88-Portrait of an Electronic Band"), the group celebrates its
now classic recordings. Harkening back to its first days on cassette tape to revive a future generation of vinyl
aficionados. AUX88's "Bass Magnetic" = Classic Detroit Electro
Review: Re-Release: Released in 1993, The Technology Ep appeared on the start of a re-establishment of electro music and a
beginning for the Direct Beat label. That would be a constant reminder of where to see 'AUX88' material come to light.
"Technology" carried the 'AUX88' brand onto radio, mainstream club and dance parties...become a sought after 12" by a
band that proclaimed its sound as 'Electro/Techno'. The Techno Bass mix is the original track, (now for the first time
available) Rhythm Mix is a different animal on its own... Within the track you can hear the growth of what would
become the sound of emerging aliases' in years to come and the use of distinct voices/vocals. With both versions from
the original studio recordings in 1993, Listeners will be treated to a major bonus point in the birth of the 'AUX Quadrant'
of projects to come. Designed for a well-deserved space on the global dance floor.
Review: From the minds of Direct Beat and Detroit Bass Classics, comes the first initial compilation of electro/techno heat. "Electro In The Key Of Detroit Vol 1" presents 4 proven dance floor dope and record crate staples that provide the hungry ears of masses the groove to move. A Side features two sure-fire steppers - a rare AUX 88 voyage entitled "Phantom Power" and Blak Tony's tempo-pushing "Holla Holla" finally see the light of day on this wax collectable, giving praise to Motor City footwork culture. On the flip, DJ K-1's "Erase The Time" rocked the airwaves and global clubs with its signature thumping style laced beneath alien-like melody and repetitive vocal structure while Posatronix's mutant-rhythm mantra, "Pure Techno Sound" pulls the weight of Detroit's street dance roots down to the origin of how to boogie in space. This collection of re-issued jams and new explorations is the must-have for the electro/techno & bass aficionado.
Review: Re-Release: Released in 1997, the sound of electro / techno came to a point where it had to evolve into a new and more
grounded entity, keyed into funk / space & rooted origins that reflected an ever-changing landscape throughout Detroit
and the 'Aux-Quadrant'. The bouncy bass line soul of 'Posatronix' project emerges in silence among several platforms
without hint of a proper biography or introduction. Later on the guard would be let down that an original lineup
member from AUX88 (William 'BJ Smith) either produced or inducted A spin-off group over seen by AUX...No video,
photos, or interviews accompanied the music...Now in 2018, we re-introduce these dance floor/ dj crate mainstays that
have continued to be cherished classics from the very men that not only too rhythmically-funky electro by storm, but
raised the bar and took matters into their own hands. 100% Mechanical Electronic Funk.
