Aux Raus is an Amsterdam based techno punk band consisting of Bastiaan Bosma and Luuk Bouwman. Their idea is simple: to mix the urgency and energy of classic punk rock with contemporary techno and gabber. Songs were written on two drum machines, a shredded guitar and an old computer resulting in a high voltage mix of punk riffage, crowd moving techno beats and pop sensibilities. Capturing the spirit of the alcoholic dance parties and the dirt of punk shows Aux Raus know how to make a party out of a funeral. Creating a maximum impact with minimal means they became known as the enfants terribles of dance music . Shows took place in bars, squats and seedy discothèques all over the globe: from the undergrounds of Amsterdam, Mexico City Berlin and Moscow, to the glamour of Paris, Madrid and New York City, and back to the welcoming warmth of their parents’ livingrooms in Noordwijk and Oss. In 2005 the band recorded their debut album in Mexico City called ‘This Is How This Works’ which is available in Mexico (Nuevos Ricos), the Netherlands (Angst) and France (BLIM). The album was produced by Julian Lede, aka Silverio - and Dr. Bono Bonso aka Carlos Navarette. No mames guey. In 2007 Aux Raus has won the prestige 3voor12 Award for Best Dutch Album 2007 and a Dutch Essent Award. They are currently working on their new album which should be finished somewhere in 2008.
