"AUX 88" is an electric group from Michigan, USA, and the members of the band are Tom Tom (Tommy Hamilton) and Keith Tucker (DJ K1). The group was founded in 1985, under the name "RX-7", and then formed another project known as "Glimmer over the view", finally to form the current "AUX 88" in 1993. In 1995, Tucker began a solo career, while Hamilton continues to work as part of the band, along with dancer William B.J. Smith. After Smith left the group in 1998, the band became a solo project led by Hamilton, and Tucker is back on track. They publish a series of singles, mainly with the production house "Dirty Bit Records". Their debut album “Is It Man or Machine?” was released in 1996, followed by Hamilton's solo project, "Xeo-Genetic" (1998), which won an award for best performer and best album in Detroit. In 1999, "AUX 88" released CD as part of a series of mixed albums, "Electro Boogie". In 2005, she released a third album titled "AUX 88".
