Fire on the Decks with Adam Foster – Exclusive Interview.
by Hannah Carlson
RaverMag. Where do you get your inspiration? How long do you typically spend in the studio or on a track?
Adam Foster: Inspiration always comes from the great music that I’ve found and wanting to share that music with my friends- that’s what got me wanting to DJ in the first place.
The best tracks come together quickly and the ideas click right away. The devil is in the details though, so getting those details right takes a lot of time. I’ve never measured exactly but I’d say it takes at least 30-60 hours worth of work to finish a track.
RaverMag. You started Djing solo in March of 2015. Its not even been 2 years and your following has almost tripled! What’s the secret to your success?
Before 2015 I was in a Dj Duo called Prom Night so I wasn’t a total novice.
Whatever small success I’ve achieved came from a lifetime immersed in music and making the effort to learn music production and marketing simultaneously. Half of it is making the music, the other half is getting it heard.
RaverMag. Partnering with Sirup Music on “Don’t Give It Up” and “Daylight” out on Beatport really had an impact on your carrier. Both are great tracks. From the dance floor vibe and to sing along with. Your Summertime/Tropical House vibe is on another level, how do you know what your fans want to hear and how to play to that tune?
Adam Foster: Thanks very much! Glad you like them. I’ve been lucky to have EDX give me advice and release my music on Sirup.
As far as the fans and what they want to hear, that’s always a guess. I’m a music fan first, so I consider their experience: are they listening in the car? On the beach? Out for a run? On the dancefloor? I want the track to work in all of those contexts.
