Greetings From The West Coast by Foster // Magic Riot
"What can I say...I've always loved this kind of music," says Tobi Schweizer ask Foster // Magic Riot. "It's just beautiful songwriting, with solid grooves and a laid-back feeling to it. I don't have to tell you. So I felt like putting a selection together with some of my favourites. Fascinated by the people behind it, all those studio-cats, songwriters and producers, I sampled interviews with them to use as interludes. David Foster, Richard Page, Nathan East, Jay Graydon, the guys from Toto and others are speaking here.
Well, that's about it. I'm just another music-nerd and crazy for digging out old records. And if you're wondering about my moniker: Foster is a name I used for a few house records I produced and released some years ago, and I still use it from time to time when I DJ; and Magic Riot is my newer, less club orientated, music-project I'm working on. I'm really slow as a producer but I hope the first Magic Riot tracks will be released in the near future."
