It’s that time of year again… when Josh Gard, famously known as Figure, drops the next volume of his Monsters series! Figure releases horror-themed Monsters mixtapes every year, and for this spooky season, he’s given us Volume 10!
Each song features samples from classic horror movies, as well as other horror-themed soundbites that further add to the creepiness. For Monsters Vol. 10, Figure recruited popular EDM vocalist Lexi Norton to lend bone-chilling monologues on the tracks The Crooked Man and The Hearse Song. Tracks like Poltergeist and Candyman draw direct inspiration from the movies they’re referencing. And tracks like Nekromancy and Vampire Hunter are original takes on well-known horror themes.
Throwing a Halloween party this year? Playing a horror movie on silent while blasting Monsters is a great way to set the mood. Stream Monsters Vol. 10 below and get ready for some seriously hard-hitting dubstep tracks with a horrifying twist.
Figure’s first Monsters installment was released in 2011. Since then, he’s put out at least one new installment each year.
Alongside Monsters, Figure also performs some of his sets using his Terrorvision experience. Terrorvision highlights Figure’s passion for horror by syncing his obscure (and gory) collection of movie clips to his special brand of EDM. In 2014, Figure provided this statement about Terrorvision:
“Terrorvision has been a concept I’ve been putting together for some time now, something I thought would go really well with my annual Monsters series.
I wanted to create the ability to compile tons of custom edited clips the same way I have compiled tons of music for my sets over the years. I’m a horror buff and I’ve amassed an extensive collection of classic shock theatre and obscure films which is definitely an inspiration for the visual direction on this tour.
Through partnering with Rane/Serato and using their hardware I now have the ability to map these custom visuals to my music on the fly, adding a brand new element to my live show. With Terrorvision it’s another dimension of my music. An intense visual backdrop giving my fans a window into where i draw inspiration; my vision as a producer, coming together on stage where the visuals brings it all to life.”
Terrorvision is coming to Seattle!
This year’s Freaknight lineup includes Figure, and he’s bringing his Terrorvision show with him! Anyone flying into Seattle for Freaknight on October 25th should definitely catch this set. It will be the perfect addition to the Halloween-themed night.
