Flux Pavilion – Starlight [Dubstep]

*Bows down* Surprise, it’s another massive release from Flux Pavilion. This one was first leaked on MistaJam‘s show on BBC Radio 1 around Christmas. Now we got a full version of this incredibly melodic track with Flux himself, on vocals. The chords in this track put a smile on your face upon first listen, and mixed with the infectious sounds that Flux is so well known for. Cheers.

Flux Pavilion – The Scientist [Preview]

Flux Pavillion needs no introduction, and with the amount of coverage we have been posting, neither does his Blow The Roof EP. The highly anticipated collection of tracks may very well become the best electronic album of 2013, having already previewed tracks like Blow The Roof, OneTwoThree, Starlight and Do or Die feating Childish Gambino.

Today we bring you another sample of what to expect out of this prolific English dubstep producer. ‘The Scientist’ is perhaps the most genre fusing track that among slow boiling wobbles and reactive vocals, it features a relaxing almost glitch/hop vibe with a non-chaotic dubstep foundation.

[TMN Resident Artist] Figure Interview: The Man Behind the Monsters

Now this has been a fun week with our wonderful resident artist Figure. We were able to sit down and have a fun interview and learn some really great things about Josh (and about his favorite shoes and food, anyone else like sushi and a good pair of Jordan tennis?). So sit back and get to know Mr Gard on a little bit more of an intimate level.

TMN: First off, we just wanted to say thanks again for being our first resident artist of the month and that we have enjoyed working with you and all your wonderful managing crew. You all are kick ass. Boom.
Now we would like to dive right in. Traditional interviews are great and we love doing them, gives the fans a bit of insight into an artist music world and gives the artist a chance to express themselves and get fans excited about upcoming shows. But we decided to go off the grid with the traditional because we want to know a bit more about YOU Josh Gard and what it means to be Figure. We also would like to have a few laughs and get some insight into the person behind the amazing music.

TMN: So tell us, we will start simple, what is your favorite drink (booze or no booze, your choice)?

Water, Bold Coffee and Dark Dark beer! I don’t really booze it up much at shows anymore though , but I do like to have a drink.

TMN: Every artist has a way of coming up with new music. Some spend hours in the studio working on one song. Some artists put together a mix of different beats to not have full songs but the start of many songs. Some artists grab a drink, smoke a little smoke and see where the night takes them. Describe in your own words what a typical day/night of music making looks like for you.

Well it all changed once I started traveling, for the better in my opinion. I used to sit at home in my basement and work on music, with nothing else to do, other than act like I was job hunting. But once I started travelling, my time at home has become just that: MY time at home. Now 80% of my production is done on the road in various headphones I travel with and then tested in clubs. Once I’m home I mix and master it all in the studio, but the creative stuff, is all on planes and in hotels!

I love it, it takes all the empty slow boring time out of traveling, because I am always working on tunes!

TMN: You have played in so many countries and cities all over the world. I’m not trying to make you play favorites here but is there one city that sticks out in your mind that just blew you away?

Hell yea, Denver and Chicago hands down. I love all my crowds, all the cities.. but I feel a certain energy in those cities .. Something is very very right there.

TMN: You are a Midwest boy born and bred. Tell us some of your favorite things about Indiana. Is there a certain restaurant you always go to when you get home from a tour?

Well, Indiana is actually super boring.. and that’s why I love it.
We live far out in the country, my neighbor has horses and all that.. It’s great. There’s a few food places, one good sushi spot and a good sandwich spot. My girlfriend and I either stay in and hermit down in the house or drive to Louisville, Nashville, or Saint Louis to go shopping and run around. Since I live in a small city, it’s hard to go out for 5 min to the mall or something and not see tons of people you know, grew up with, want to ignore.. or used to date.

Haha I always tell my producer friends to come fly out .. let’s make some music, cook burgers and shoot guns …no one has taken me up on that yet.
