Raw Underground is an Amsterdam based production duo consisting of Jasper Wognum and Lukas Pauka. Both guys have been producing music for more than a decade. Jasper has made a name for himself as a DJ and part of progressive act SNAFU which nowadays lives on as 16 bit Lolita’s. Lukas has released tracks on Shanghai based tech-house label Defuse Records. Lukas and Jasper decided to team up and start Raw Underground in order to share their love for underground house music.
RU has a strong connection with the early nineties New York and New Jersey house sound and scene. They take inspiration from the likes of Larry Levan, Kerri Chandler and Tony Humphries. The guys try and take you back to places like Zanzibar, the Paradise Garage and the Loft, taking the gospel infused musicality of past times, enhanced with modern day production.
RU has released tracks on Salted Music, Madhouse Records, InnerCity Records, Hustler Trax, Spira Music, 44/House Records, All Over It (UK), Criminal Hype, F.V.R. Street, Cosmic Disco, Underground Source Recordings and Cahoots Records NYC.
