Holy hell. Eerie, Indiana native Figure, just took a hatchet to Chuckie, MRK1, and Doctor’s “Mek Money,” stapling and glueing the track back together into freakish dubstep meets trap masterpiece. Figure‘s “horrorcore” sound pulses through the entire production with blaring sirens, monlithic horn blasts and syncopated 808s that uppercut the mix in a barrage of thunderous percussion and gritty bass. Initially developing with a trap foundation, Figure lets the track build before taking it down darker alleyways, delivering a speedy dubstep breakdown designed to redline a mixer and contort the dancefloor. This is monster music.Posted by
Indiana native and horror-step producer, Figure, takes on Blood Diamonds’ “Barcode” with a furious barrage of screaming drum and bass and groaning synthesizers. What was once a chillwave-tinged trap production with verses from Dominic Lord, Figure’s rendition of “Barcode” tears the production limb from limb, re-assembling it like a dubstep mad scientist – is this where the heart goes? Who the hell knows. The track starts innocently enough, until Figure pushes the tempo through the roof, delivering a bass-fueled and thrashing assault on your eardrums – and your sanity. Look for the Barcode EP out March 12th on OWSLA.Posted by
In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, members of the dance music community have stepped up to try and help relief efforts. For his part, Figure has released a free remix of Citizen Cope’s “Lifeline” but is giving fans the option to donate funds to the cause instead. He says, “This remix seems fitting for what’s going on today, so releasing it into the wild with hopes it raises awareness for our friends along the Eastern seaboard who need a little lifeline right now.” Even if it’s just the $1.99 you might have paid for the song on iTunes, we hope you all contribute.
The heavy bass and wobbles Figure applies to the song mesh well with Citizen Cope’s vocals. Wompy dubstep remixes of seemingly out of place slow songs often result in beautifully haunting renditions — “Lifeline” is no exception.
It’s been over a year since the original version of Diplo and Don Diablo’s “Make You Pop” was released. After the track’s popularity plateaued – owed largely in part to the BlackBerry commercial it was featured in – we finally get a reprised and remixed package of updates to play out. Each version offers a unique spin on the original electro house track – ranging from the Dutch bleeps in the reprise, to the drum-heavy baseline of Tommie Sunshine & Figure’s remix. Check out the minimix below and head over to Beatport to pick up your favorite version (or the full package).

Small town producer, Josh Gard, better known as Figure, returns with another monstrous electro/drumstep hybrid. Like a sonic Dr.Frankenstein, this Eerie, Indiana native has sewn together a variety of sounds and styles to create a menacing sound all his own. “Mission of Destruction” is the first track off his highly anticipated first full length album coming in the 3rd quarter of 2012. Interspersed with old B movie sound clips and heavy synthetic grime, this track is best suited for the EDM fans of the grittier variety (leave your furry animal hats at home) – it kicks so hard it will knock your fillings out, like a mosh pit for your headphones.
Follow the Soundcloud link to download the track for free off of ImFigure.net and maybe even donate a dollar via Kickstarter to help fund his new album.

Figure really has been putting in some massive work in the studio recently. He just released this track for free download on his soundcloud. Great track. Has a good mix of dubstep-like drops and electro, similar to Skrillex’s stuff.

Bonus track! I view these more as DJ tools as opposed to bootlegs so to speak, but they are great for mixing back and forth between house and dubstep.

DA favorite Tommie Sunshine just sent over this new edit he and Figure did of Britney Sp
ear’s newest single “Hold it Against Me,” produced by mega-pop producer Dr. Luke. Tommie and Figure did a great job with this edit, emphasizing the parts of the track they most enjoyed, and making the track a bit more club friendly in the process. Keep up the good work in 2011 Tommie and Figure!
