Fostercare - Altered Creature RER015
After successful releases on Robot Elephant Records, Disaro and Clan Destine Records, as well as a litany of digital self-releases and remixes, Minneapolis producer Fostercare releases a bold new album entitled ‘Altered Creature’.
For ‘Altered Creature’, Fostercare worked 12-16 hours a day, endeavouring to create emotional electronic music that combines elements of techno, trance, rave and their many sub-genres. With heavy visual influences from the hyperrealist world of advertising, pornography, violence, virtual environments, post humanism and fetish societies; Fostercare has shaped a strange world behind his strain of electronic music. Driven by arpeggiated sequences, breakbeats and apocalyptic sentiments, Fostercare is music for the simulacrum - a peeling away of future underworlds, neon pulses, alternate screens, genetic maps and urban sprawl. Skating between many genres, his music is connected by its emotional intensity and third-eye hyperactive visions.
His credentials as a producer extend back to 2008, where he earned praise for exploring a darker, syrupy, warped-808-inspired sound teemed with surreal visuals. Inspired by Deleuzian and Zizekian trajectories of thought, Fostercare makes music that’s impossible to pigeonhole. Never is this more accurate than with ‘Altered Creature’.
