Figgy is no stranger to the GottaDanceDirty feed. This producers dreamy tunes have a tendency to float just nice through the airwaves, perfect Summer jams. His latest remix is one of the official sort, for none other than ASTR. “Activate Me” has seen some noteable remix attention from the likes of Darkchild and LEFTI, but this one is something else. Super smooth synths dance atop the vocals, get ready for a nice ride.

Our man Figgy puts the booty in bootleg on his remix of “Often” by The Weeknd. It’s not often that an artist can take a track by The Weeknd & sex it up more than it already is. But Figgy is more than up for the challenge & handles his business with flair by layering the Radiohead classic “Everything In Its Right Place” over the sleazy R&B sounds of The Weeknd. The result is a charged up, double dose of raw energy that will surely have the dance floor dripping in sex.
Out now via Cut & Dry Records.
In case you missed it, we premiered the track last month on our 4th annual Holidaze Mix:

The 90’s anthem that needs no introduction, Blackstreet’s infamous ‘No Diggity’ has claimed its Grammy award-winning spot among other R&B greats and since adopted countless remixes. There is always room for one more however, as the east coast bred Figgy has delivered the funkiest of them all. Sampling just enough of the vocal to stand on its own, Figgy pays homage to the original while creating a house driven hit that will have you bobbin like its 1996. Listen below and grab it for FREE download!
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.
