KiNK AKA Kirilik, Lady Starlight, Len Faki & more feature on 15th anniversary compilation ‘FIGURE 100
Few labels have managed the feat of staying around long enough to be called a true classic while at the same time ceaselessly pushing their genre forward, thus turning into a catalyst for the scene’s growth as a whole. Figure is one such an exceptional imprint, celebrating its 15th anniversary this year. Coinciding with the monumental catalogue number 100, the label has gathered a group of their most defining current artist both for a very special compilation as well as sending them on an Figure 100 tour across selected European clubs.
Over the years Figure has unfolded a sound that still carries the big bravado of techno’s early days but also embodies modern minimalism and efficiency. New additions to the roster have further broadened the label’s spectrum: while Lady Starlight, Kirilik (aka KiNK) and Juxta Position recently accounted for some machine-heavy outings, young producers such as Setaoc Mass, Viers and Nocow brought in fresh and original perspectives.
Equally important in the evolution process were regular contributors like veteran mainstay Jeroen Search and Roman Poncet. Steering this constant progression with a clear vision has always been the one Len Faki, whose uninterrupted passion has driven the label since its inception in 2003; a series of sub-labels have complemented the discography, such as the lately-launched Figure Jams or the already concluded chapters of Figure SPC and Podium. With Faki as a genuine figurehead leading the course and a crew of auspicious artists manning the rows, Figure will keep sailing with full speed ahead!
