Coming off the World War III tour supporting Hollywood Undead and Asking Alexandria, dubstep’s emerging badass BORGORE is looking to further invade the U.S.A. with his mastermind tracks on his round of solo dates and is coming to Santa Cruz, CA Thursday, December 1 at The Catalyst Club.
Asaf Borger, aka BORGORE, has unquestionably become a household name for those who follow the ever-growing dubstep sound. Taking a different turn from the main stages and social circles of the genre emerging out of Europe, BORGORE has a huge online presence using many social network platforms. As a pianist, saxophone extraordinaire, deathmetal drummer and beat boxer (working alongside Tomba on their live beatbox group, which later became dubstep group Amp), BORGORE is not just your average party rocker. He conquers a diverse music spectrum.
He started producing dubstep in 2007, and with very little recognition from the then-niche audience, BORGORE quickly established himself with his unique sound and style. He quickly started to fly around the world from gig to gig, shortly realizing every performance was having a huge impact. BORGORE quickly developed unique characteristics to his performance. Whether crowd surfing or mosh pitting with his fans, the charismatic performer brought over his years of experience in a band to the dubstep stage. He maintains his live stamina via a special workout regime—check it out at: http://youtu.be/pE6jT4oMmPI.
With over 20 million views on YouTube, which include his videos for “Nympho” (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=reHGIYHAR2Q) and Passion Pit’s “Sleepyhead” remix (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-BLEKahY5aY), and being featured on soundtracks for TV shows such as U.K. hit show “Skins,” he now runs his own record label Buygore and has featured releases and remixes for many well-known international artists. BORGORE goes from strength to strength and has only just scratched the surface. His full-length EP The Filthiest Hits…So Far is out now. Look for his new artist album to be released in spring of 2012.
