With two decades of sonic abuse and experience, Dave Foster remains a formidable talent and a favourite of many (myself included).
Anyone with a passing interest in techno will likely have heard Probe Records’ The Wipe – a track he recorded under the name Teste (with fellow Canadian Himadri) back in ’92.
A longtime affiliate of Berlin’s mighty Zhark Industries, Foster isn’t one to churn out endless versions of that early techno anthem, but has instead pushed the sonics into sharp, raw electronics, rhythmic noise and industrial deconstructs of “techno”. Something he describes as scumtronics. In 2015 he joined forces with Orphx’s Rich Oddie as O/H (Ontario Hospital). He continues to record solo material as Huren, MRTVI and has lots of material lined up for release next year.
His session tonight, our final of 2016, is deep, bleak and at points deliciously heavy. In session for Mantis Radio – Dave Foster.
Shouts to all our session guests, featured artists, labels and to you, our listeners. Thank you for your continued support. Here’s to 2017. Muchlove D.
