BORGORE RETURNS WITH NEW EP ‘FLEX’ FEBRUARY 28

By on February 9, 2012

37-DATE HEADLINING TOUR KICKS OFF MARCH 16 IN NYC
AND INCLUDES FESTIVAL APPEARANCES AT
ULTRA MUSIC FESTIVAL AND COACHELLA
DUBSTEP VIDEO FOR “FLEX” OUT NOW

Lock up your livestock. BORGORE—bass culture’s enfant terrible—has returned to terrorize speakers and stages yet again with a new release and tour. The man who claims he “ruined dubstep” will release FLEX, his fifth EP of original material, February 28 on his own Buygore label and will then will follow up with a massive 37-date headlining tour that includes stops at Ultra Music Festival and Coachella.  Tickets are on sale now atborgore.wantickets.com.
FLEX represents the latest salvo in the 24-year-old producer/songwriter/DJ’s rapid ascent. The formally trained jazz musician’s original tracks and remixes (spanning M.I.A., Rusko, and Britney Spears to LMFAO and Passion Pit) have become club smashes. He recently collaborated with Diplo on the track “Animal” off of Yelawolf’s smash, Eminem-cosigned debut RadioactiveFLEXthough, proves BORGORE’s most ambitious effort yet. “Kiss My Lips”—a monstrous collaboration with Dev, the dance-music siren behind hits for Far East Movement and David Guetta—is already spawning dancefloor mayhem.  There’s two versions of the title track—one a pounding dubstep version, the other a hip-hop flavored take influenced by the “trap music” of Waka Flocka Flame and Lex Luger—which prove BORGORE’s hardest, raunchiest beats yet.
Completing the package is the video for “Flex,” an over-the-top spoof of rap-video excess directed byRichard Farmer (winner of an MTV Video Music Award for his work on Gnarls Barkley’s innovative “Run” clip). The dubstep version of the “Flex” video made it’s debut on UKF Dubstep late January and now can be viewed at:http://youtu.be/_9h5v5bTRIw. “It’s next-level offensive,” BORGORE laughs.
Meanwhile, expect BORGORE to scale new heights of outrageousness as well on his upcoming tour, which takes him along the Eastern U.S. coast, the South and into the Southwest. “Most DJs just sleep behind the decks, checking their email,” BORGORE notes. “I try to bring some stage presence.” That’s an understatement. BORGORE’s propulsive, interactive live shows have turned him into one of electronic music’s most popular, controversial figures. His trademark combination of bass-in-your-face frenzy and pole-dancer grindingtypically climaxes with a cavalcade of bare breasts onstage and him crowd surfing over furious mosh pits; expect this latest jaunt to be BORGORE’s most wild escapade yet. “What excites me is making the live show even crazier,” he explains. “I’m saying the craziest shit, doing the craziest stuff you’re not supposed to do. I never thought it would get to this point–but whenever I accomplish one dream, I want to get the next, bigger one.”
