Borgore – Borgore is one of electronic music’s most popular and polarizing artists. Called the enfant terrible of bass culture and happy to name himself the man who “ruined dubstep,” the LAbased, Tel Aviv-born producer’s genre-destroying “gorestep” and maniacal live shows have made him an iconic character in the modern bass scene. Noisey describes the first single “Ratchet” as “a devastating cock-trap breakdown that rattles both your teeth and sense of self before ricocheting back to the perverse eye of the storm.” The suggestion that the song, which rewrites the children’s classic “If You’re Happy And You Know It” into a wobbling, dirty, bass anthem will “destroy your childhood” is one that Borgore, eternal provocateur, heartily enjoys. Borgore’s enthusiastic disruption of current electronic music is backed up by sterling musical credentials, proving the old saying that you have to know the rules before you can break them. Formally trained in jazz at Tel Aviv’s Thelma Yellin music academy – Israel’s answer to Juilliard – he was a saxophone prodigy and composed for big band ensembles. The depth of Borgore’s musical knowledge is reflected in his varied influences, which range from Bach and John Coltrane to Aphex Twin and Ella Fitzgerald.
