What more can we say about our man Figgy? We’re on board with everything he does, so not only are we thrilled that his new EP “Missing You” came out this week, we’re also proud of & happy for the man himself for releasing the EP on his very own label, Cut & Dry. The EP is everything we’ve come to expect (and love) from Figgy. It’s four wonderful tracks filled with his trademark sound: multi-layered, rich, soulful tracks at a cruising speed no higher than 115bpm.
Get on board with the “Missing You” EP.
Figgy eases us back into the Fall season with “You Were Mine”, the first track off of his new EP “Missing You”. ”You Were Mine” has that special kind of mysterious energy that somehow manages to keep you moving while still making you feel completely laid back. This slow burner House/soulful Disco tune is sure to ignite your spark…it’s the perfect lead track to get your fire going for Figgy’s new EP.
The “Missing You” EP will be out later this Fall on Cut And Dry.
While French Express bossman Perseus was able to pioneer the Tropical RnB movement from a few years back and Kaytranada was able to elevate that sound with an edgier Hip Hop vibe, East Coast producer Figgy found a way to perfectly balance all of the aforementioned elements to come up with his own brand of sexy, soulful Deep Disco. Whether it’s original production or remix work, one listen to Figgy’s SoundCloud is enough to lure anyone in. With standout remixes of BANKS, T-Pain & Phantogram (to name a few) already under his belt, Figgy keeps that sexy remix train rollin’ with his latest, a remix of “Wanna Control Myself” by UK chanteuse Florrie. The result is another deep, hypnotic jam sure to put you in the sexiest of moods.

It’s another amazing round of hot new tracks courtesy of your boys Stevie Ewald + aRod. And when we say hot new tracks, we mean it. All ten tracks in The Dirt #151 are fresh out of the oven. And the best part? They’re all free for your taking. A brand new remix by The Twelves (of The Knocks, no less!)…yeah, that’s in there. New originals from Cyril Hahn, Gorgon City, Figgy & Cory Enemy? Those are in there, too. Plus heaters by our homies Panic Bomber and Huerta, Tchami, and a ridiculous anthem by Mayhem, Antiserum, Gents & Jawns.
Get’em while they’re hot.
