Rennie Foster has been a well-respected figure in the Canadian music and art community for over two decades. He influenced many as an early pioneer of the Hip-Hop / B-Boy movement, and later the House Music and Techno / Rave scene, participating in the first events in Western Canada during the birth of these now common urban subcultures. He is also very well known within the niche of graffiti art for his early work, having been archived in several published books.
Rennie relocated to Tokyo Japan in 2004 and became an important part of the Japanese club scene, playing all over Japan in venues such as Womb, ageHa, and Yellow, maintaining DJ residencies in Tokyo, Shizuoka and Kyoto at the Metro club and at the Nagisa Music Festival in Tokyo and Osaka. Rennie was consistently ranked in the top 50 DJs in Japan by LOUD Magazine until re-locating back to Canada in 2011.
Rennie Foster has released music with Jack White’s Third Man Label, classic dance music labels including Transmat, F-Communications, Synewave, Teknotika, Monoid, Subject Detroit, and is widely recognized for his underground anthem Devil's Water on Rebirth Records. Rennie has remixed, or been remixed by, some of the top names in dance music such as James Zabiela and Swayzak. He has released many singles, EPs, and his third official full length album, Game of 100 Ghosts, was released last year with cover design by Detroit artist HAQQ. The album was successfully crowd-funded by Rennie’s notable grass roots fanbase through social media. He runs a signature record label RF and continues to produce music for cutting edge dance music imprints including Goldmin Music from France, Detroit based Soiree, aDepth audio from the Netherlands and the Japanese house music label UNKNOWN Season.
Rennie is currently a resident DJ at Western Canada’s top after-hours club, Gorg-O-Mish, as well as a fixture at Canadian events such as Rifflandia Festival in Victoria, MEME in Winnipeg, and Sunwave in Vancouver, traveling to play as a guest at underground venues in Detroit, New York and Paris among others.
