Josh Gard has had a long history in music, but lately he has been rapidly rising up the ranks for all things bass. Just a few short years ago he donned the name Figure and began making electro house, but has since become a regular name in all realms of electronic and dance. Scoring positions among the charts may have gotten him recognition, but a hefty amount of praise has been raining down on him lately as some of the leading artists in electronic music have valued his live performance skills as some of the best in the business.
With releases alongside industry heavyweights Diplo, Tommy Lee, Flux Pavillion, Excision, BT, Tommy Sunshine, and Borgore, as well as a robust catalog of originals, bootlegs, and remixes, Figure’s signature sound has earned him a cult following amongst a growing number of insatiable fans. In 2011, his Monsters of Drumstep series married is love of horror with his immense production skills to become the soundtrack to the Halloween season. His follow up “Destruction Series” added a new ride to the amusement park with twists and turns through an intergalactic electro war armed with robots and missile drop laser synths. “I just like how artists present a package of something close to an adventure… Like a theme park of sound that is an experiment and experience for everyone,” states Gard.
When he’s not on tour or recording in his home-town studios in rural Indiana, he’s touring worldwide including packed tents at festival like EDC, SnowGlobe, Starscape, The Bounce, Creamfields Australia, and Dour Music Festival. His constant interaction with fans is more akin to maintaining a healthy family than what one usually finds in a social media marketing age.
