Figure | Horns of the Apocalypse EP [OWSLA]

It gives us great joy to announce that Josh Gard aka Figure has officially signed onto OWSLA for his latest EP release titled Horns of the Apocalypse. After dropping his remix of “Barcode” by Blood Diamonds earlier this year under Skrillex’s massive label, it would seem Mr. Gard has found a home amongst some of the best and most promising EDM producers in the business. Skrillex most certainly knows great music when he hears it, we just wonder why it took OWSLA this long to snatch up one of our favorite heavy bass producers.

But as the Romans say: better late than never.

Figure’s latest EP features two tracks with Del The Funky Homosapien. Many of you may recognize him as Deltron 3030 (the rapper who spit on “Clint Eastwood” by the Gorillaz), some may even remember him for his remix of Josh’s “Upgrade”. According to Figure, Del loved his remix so much that he contacted him in order to collaborate on future releases by Josh. We think it’s great that members of the EDM community can team up with rappers and NOT produce a trap track. Originality is how we identify with an artist.

Write that down.

For fans of Figure, his newest EP release is pretty much what you would expect from drumstep’s whizkid, with a few exceptions. His collaboration with another Nest native, Nick Thayer, is a bit off the beaten track in comparison to that classic Figure sound. Either way, it’s funky, it’s fun and undoubtedly experimental. It’s nice to see Josh Gard trying out new things. Overall, a solid EP and yet another reason to watch Figure crawl his way to the top of the bass music scene.
