Fostercare produces dark and surreal electronic music and beats with a progressive edge. With an experiemental take towards pop music, Fostercare incorporates rap, ebm, pop and techno to "blur the line between terror and ecstasy" and present a unique visual and sonic style that is all his own.

Biography

Based in Minneapolis via Brooklyn, Fostercare continues to forge new territory as an emerging underground producer and video artist that specializes in emotional, dark and surreal techno-pop with a dance edge. He will be releasing his first vinyl album Altered Creature with the London-based label, Robot Elephant Records, on April 23rd.

Certainly not entirely new to the scene, artist Marc Jason has been making music as Fostercare since 2008. His first official releases were on the syrupy, dark and gritty labels, Disaro and Clan Destine. He has since been reviewed by NME who called out his "inventive sounds" and Altered Zones, who said his songs "blur the line between terror and ecstasy". He has remixed the ethereal goth of White Ring and has played shows with the likes of Pictureplane and Slava. Online he is equally known for his apoplectic and transcendentally bedroom-ravey videos.

You can catch Fostercare this Spring as he ventures on his first full EU tour, also making stops in Russia and the UK. With music driven by arpeggiated sequences, stutters and breakbeats, apocalyptic sentiments and broken dreams, Fostercare is music for the simulacrum- a peeling away of future underworlds and neon pulses. This is a mirror-world answer to The Knife on Adderal, a bedroom rave that gets lost in Lynchian ether. Fostercare is one vision for the hyperactive tomorrow of electronic music.

Press:
Fostercare has been interviewed by and profiled in i:D magazine, Dazed and Confused, Word Magazine and other mags.
