Boomkat Product Review:
Seven years after they last graced our cochlea's, the Detroit boys of Aux 88 are back - bringing their live take on techno/electro bang cochlea's date with this self-titled album. Having formed back in the block-rocking 1980's as a cover band tackling the likes of Juan Atkins, Model 500 and Kraftwerk, Aux 88 decided to start making their own tunes when they realised there was nothing new coming out that really excited people anymore. Harking back to the heady days when electro and Detroit Techno went hand-in-hand, 'Aux 88' is the kind of record which can afford to indulge in some misty-eyed reminiscing given that they temper any glory-hunting with a razor edge of new and vital material. Far more nuanced and undercut with melancholy than first impressions might suggest, the conspicuous employment of vocals certainly helps to snag the attention in LP format - with the likes of 'We Make Beats', 'Clones' and 'Step Into The Light' all balancing deep bass, steel beats and graceful electro to stimulating effect. With a particular highlight being the startling 303 anthem 'K-1 Theme', Aux 88 prove that Detroit is still a fertile techno ground in full bloom.
