Chaotic and cozy – this month’s installment of Republic’s regular event, Pajama Slam, features dubstep monster Figure. Producer Josh Gard has been synonymous with Halloween sounds since Figure’s inception.
Just in time for spooky season, the heavy hitting bass artist has no shortage of scares to draw from. His iconic Monsters EPs have been gaining a steady following since volume one in 2011. Each track focuses on one haunting mythical creature, sampling old horror movie audio clips with apocalyptic bass sounds. Universal Studios even enlisted him to supply the soundtrack to their special Halloween Horror Nights events.
The upcoming ninth installment of Monsters – entitled Asylum – drops October 12. Maybe Republic fans will get an audio sneak peek at the pajama slam.
His record label – DOOM MUSIC – was originally just a plug for his own EPs. Now they release special productions from Figure friends, and host pop-up showcases in various cities and festivals.
Doors open at 11. Get there early to hear support comes from KYCER – a young DJ from Lake Charles – and riddim swamp monster BOARCROK. It’s sure to be a neck-wracking, head-cracking night of spooks, ghouls and bass.
