”A-U-X is in the place, it’s time to drop some techno bass.” This robotic intro from their 1996 dance floor burner Break it down capsulises AUX88 perfectly. The Detroit based electro-techno pioneers have been pushing Motor City-influenced breakbeat electro-funk for almost two decades, alongside the likes of Underground Resistance and Drexciya. Less introspective and more sweat-evoking than some of their great contemporaries, AUX88’s dynamic sound is an essential reminder that electro owes Afrika Bambaataa just as much as Kraftwerk. But enough chatter. It’s time to drop some techno bass.
