Asaf Borger (Hebrew: אסף בורגר‎; born October 20, 1987), known professionally as Borgore, is an Israeli electronic dance music producer and DJ.

Biography[edit]

Borgore comes from Tel Aviv, Israel. He is the founder of Buygore Records[2] and former drummer of Israeli deathcore band Shabira. He is also part of the dubstep duo Alphamale Primates, which consists of him and Tomba.[3] Self-described as "Gorestep", his music incorporates triplet drum patterns with heavy metal influences.[2] Some songs have been compared to horror movies, farm animals, and sex.[4] Sometimes he performs under the nicknames: Borgina, Isabelle or Estrella. He has released tracks under Dim Mak Records, Spinnin' Records, Sumerian Records and also his own label Buygore. In 2012 he released the single "Decisions", with back-up vocals provided by Miley Cyrus.[5] His label Buygore records has brought to fame artists such as Document One and even Rusko has released on the label. Current Buygore signees include Dead Audio, Ookay, Kennedy Jones, Bare and At Dawn We Rage among others. Borgore has been credited (slightly jokingly) even by his close friend and fellow producer DJ Carnage for the change in musical style and attitude of Miley Cyrus. His debut album called #NEWGOREORDER was released on Buygore Records under exclusive license with Dim Mak Records

In November 2014, Borgore partnered with Electronic Music lifestyle brand Electric Family to produce a collaboration bracelet for which 100% of the proceeds are donated to Keep a Breast Foundation. Keep a Breast Foundation is working to help eradicate breast cancer by supporting young people & educating them on prevention, early detection, & cancer-causing toxins.

Musical Style[edit]

Borgore was predominantly a dubstep artist since his departure from Israeli deathcore band Shabira. However, since the release of Incredible on Spinnin Records, Borgore has shifted to a more trap and house sound. He recently released "Wild Out EP" on Dim Mak Records with vocals from rapper Waka Flocka Flame. Borgore's last notable dubstep release was the "Legend EP" on his own label Buygore.
