Josh Gard has been honing his craft for many years, but only recently would he take on the moniker of Figure and embark on his electro house career. His irresistible mixes and compilations have taken him ever higher in the world of dance and electronic music. Not only do his tracks continue to find a higher ranking in charts across the world, but lately well-established electronic music artists have been showering Figure with unrestrained praise for his masterful showmanship and truly virtuosic skills as a performer.
Figure would corner the Halloween season market with his 2011 series, Monsters of Drumstep. This perfectly creepy compilation would showcase his passion for high-quality production as well as his unparalleled sensibility for horror. Since then, the Monsters series has been released once a year every fall on Figure's own DOOM Music label.
Figure would then sign a deal with the OWSLA label, and come out shortly thereafter with Horns of the Apocalypse. This exciting new EP release would demonstrate Figure's continuing evolution in terms of skills and musicality in the realm of 4/4 time dance beats. Horns of the Apocalypse featured the hit tracks "Beast Mode," "War Call," and "Eagle." This EP especially would demonstrate what makes Figure truly unique. Featured artists on this edgy EP are Nick Thayer of OWSLA, Mr. Lif of Definitive Jux, and Del the Funky Homosapien of Hieroglyphics, Gorillaz, and Deltron 3030.
Figure's 2013 installment of the Monsters series was reportedly composed mostly while touring on the road. Once Figure arrived back at his Indiana studio at home, he would get right to work on the highest quality volume of Monsters that his fans had ever enjoyed. It would be this Monsters volume that would make its mark on the charts and earn Figure wide acclaim. This release would echo the kind of soundscape that aligned with his other projects like Death's Gospel and Symphony of the Damned.
In 2013, Figure's delightfully grim opus that is the Monsters series was picked up by none other than the Universal Studios theme park as the official theme music for their Hollywood Horror Nights. In the fall of that year, the fourth edition in the Monsters series rocketed up the rankings on Beatport and iTunes around the world. Hit tracks from the deadly dance compilation include "The Center of Hell" with Helicopter Showdown, "Living Dead," and "Are You Afraid of the Dark" with Lexi Norton. His live performances themselves are unforgettable, with his sets always packing the pits and tents at various electro and dance festivals around the globe.
Figure's hallowed status as a cult EDM icon has earned him a legion of fans and has led to his growing list of notable collaborations with electro heavyweights. Bogore, Tommy Sunshine, BT, Excision, Flux Pavillion, DJ Chuckie, Deltron 3030, Tommy Lee, and Diplo have all proudly yoked their talents together with Figure's at some point.
