自从Rennie Foster十几岁起他就已经成为了加拿大的音乐艺术界的知名人物。在他到日本玩过几次后，Rennie就已经爱上了东京的东方式club techno，并移居到东京生活一直到现在。他早期的音乐精炼的融合了现代CLUB，芝加哥house和经典底特律techno等元素。
Rennie Foster has been a well respected figure in the Canadian music and art community since he was just a teenager. After visiting Japan several times to play, Rennie fell in love with the techno oriented Tokyo club scene and has since relocated to Tokyo where he now lives. His sound fuses the refined "minimal" elements of modern club sounds with the vibe of filthy Chicago House, classic Detroit Techno and early rave records.
Recently he has been also voted by Loud Magazine in the Top50 djs of the Japan dance electronic music scene. Currently ranked at #22! 'Devil's Water', released in 2008 on Rebirth is an incredible piece of modern underground electronic music. Djs like Sasha, James Holden, James Zabiela, Pete Tong, Laurent Garnier, Ben Watt, Trentemoller, Agoria played it in all their sets, and considered it as one of the tunes of the year ! It became a true underground anthem and fueled the inspiration of creating the full length album 'Blood Sugar'.
'Blood Sugar' is about the balance of sweetness and innocence (sugar) with darkness, depth and melancholy (Blood). This correlation can be also found in Rennie's music where the darker vision of his sound lives with the sweeter side ! It contains the essence of Japanese inspired beauty while maintaining the grit and mentality of the Detroit/Chicago sound.
Timeless production with collaborations from artists like Aaron-Carl (one of Detroit's most enduring and soulful artists), Moka Only (ex Swollen Members, a pioneer and driving force behind Canadian West Coast hip hop) and unidentified soft female vocals, subtle, spooky, balanced with references to classic dance music.
Blood Sugar is known to effect the mood of a person and this album reflects that with abstract references and suggestions, both in the song titles, melodies and sound pallette, to the human body's mysterious relationship to different emotional states.
The album also includes jacket photography by Rennie's close Tokyo cohort, Hiroshi Watanabe aka Kaito, known for his stellar releases on Kompakt.
