ALTERED CREATURE (ROBOT ELEPHANT)
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".
