About Borgore

Israeli EDM producer Yosef Asaf Borger approaches beatmaking with the lavish deviousness of a cartoon villain. Although ostensibly influenced by the dubstep that first emanated from South London in the early 2000s, his own self-described brand of “gorestep”—which he makes under the name Borgore—takes bass obsession to extremes with maximal synth textures, vulgar lyrics, and lots of rave-ready sleaze. Born in the city of Holon in 1987, Borgore grew up in Tel Aviv, where he was immersed in music while attending private schools as a kid. He played drums in a metalcore band in the late 2000s, but he decided to focus on making beats after serving a three-year stint in the Israeli military and becoming enamored with dubstep’s subsonic intensity. He cast himself as an enfant terrible early on, poking fun at his influences on a two-part 2010 effort titled Borgore Ruined Dubstep. Since then, he’s teamed up with other colorful characters like Miley Cyrus and rapper Juicy J while branching out into house and hip-hop—toning down the nastiness, but only slightly, on major hits like his 2015 G-Eazy collab “Forbes.”
