Asaf Borger was a good student. He got good grades, went to an arts high school with an amazing jazz program, and was trained as a classical pianist. His parents, hard-working Israelis with high hopes for their son, wanted Asaf to become a doctor or a lawyer. Instead, he became the bad boy of bass.
Credited for "ruining dubstep," Borgore has become one of the biggest bass music acts in the world. With multiple US tours under his belt, a slew of tracks available at his own online store, Buygore, and a recent collaboration with Miley Cyrus (yeah, that Miley Cyrus), there seems to be no stopping Borgore. But for the young producer, it's not enough, as he reveals in this interview.
Catch him on Borgore's Bakery Tour, hitting clubs across North America through October. This weekend he'll be in Ontario, Boston, and Dallas. Catch him in New Orleans at the end of the month for a big Halloween blowout at the Voodoo music festival.
His new EP #TurnUp will be out on Monday through Beatport. You'll notice his predilection for Twitter from the hashtag album title. Follow him if you dare @Borgore, but make no bones about it--it's decidedly NSFW. And if you want to check out his videos, click here to go to his YouTube channel. You'll find a video with Ms. Cyrus for "Decisions" very soon. If you love Borgore, make sure to check out his record label BuyGore where you can find tons of downloads and mixes.
