Hello Everyone last year was a very busy year for Aux 88. Not only where they Touring extensively with their new Cd Aux 88 presents Black Tokyo.
They managed to add two new members to their techno project. Two unbelievably talented young ladies Ice truck and Erika. This project is indeed a departure from their techno bass persona Mad Scientist. Hamilton and Tucker spent almost 7 months in the studio recording with new gear and software after the grueling long tour. The motivation from the long stay in the studio was a welcomed excitement for the duo from Detroit. They took their time to create lots of new material. Four new black Tokyo eps from Hamilton and Tucker and three new Optic Nerve ep's from Tucker.
Their will also be two big surprise ep's coming in 2013 as Puzzlebox Records will revisit reworks and a digital mastering of the classic Detroit hit Shari Vari by A Number of Names. More details to come. Also Aux 88 has not completely abandoned their fans in the Techno Bass genre Puzzlebox Records will release on special limited edition electro ep once a year with special goodies......
Now on to the new release info coming in September and November 2012.

_____________________________________________________________________________________PBX-23 DETROPOLIS EP - Optic Nerve
Detropolis (original mix) is Optic Nerves take on Detroit’s infrastructure rebuilding. Detropolis Opens with the Unmistakable optic nerve strings giving you a sense of riding on a futuristic people mover in the night time summer air. The Dark and twisted growling baselines makes you long for partying in the new downtown Detroit.
A2 Is the Aux 88 Mad Scientist mix describing this as funky is a understatement Aux 88 mix brings the funk, soul and Detroit dankness that has inspired a culture. Techno Bass purely for the dance floor.
Side b1 Detroit vocal mental mix is a Tucker whisper style vocoder driven techno groove with a baseline that Makes you long to be on techno blvd located near downtown. The beats are swinging to a pitch wheeled baseline that grooves the soul.
B2 Detropolis M5 Central Station Mix is a more up-tempo beat excursion into a pro one pumped bass line. Showcasing Juan Atkins influence on Keith tuckers career. Tuckers style is so well studio mastered but somehow minimal beat oriented on this ep that it comes off as his unmistakable optic nerve style. You can almost hear the robotic voice on the futuristic rail system speaking ever so softly “You have reached the techno Mecca of downtown Detroit.Preview Detropolis Ep Click Link
