As Borgore continues on the #TURNTLIFE tour that launched after Ultra and will take him to both EDC Chicago and Vegas, he’s found the time to release some new material along the way. The latest tune from the blue-eyed bass monster comes in the form of “Sonata in F Major,” a chord-based composition that goes spiraling down the dubstep hole. Led off with a keyboard melody and drumstep beat, the first movement is shattered when larger than life drops and merciless grinds break in, bringing the track down to dancefloor level. As a reminder of Borgore’s classical training, the melody is in fact in F major, the very key in which his favorite composer Bach wrote his famed Brandenburg Concertos 1 and 2. Offering a taste of what to expect on the king of cake’s forthcoming EP, “Sonata in F Major” will be released June 18th on Buygore Records.Posted by

If you thought “Incredible,” the house collaboration between Borgore and Carnage, was a surprising output, today’s release of “Deception” on Spinnin’ Records may shock you even further. Dubstep’s raunchiest proponent Borgore has teamed up with progressive house talent Cedric Gervais for a glitchy big room production. The build up is a somewhat standard chord progression, but the drop of “Deception” quickly descends into spastic and sporadic electro. It’s not the first time the two names have been linked, as Gervais remixed Borgore’s “Decisions” last summer while Borgore consequently remixed the frenchman’s breakout hit, “Molly.”

Cedric Gervais last teamed up with Borgore for his remix of “Decisions,” bringing the dub-heavy “Bitches love cake” hook to the dance floor. The producers have now joined forces in the studio for an upcoming Spinnin’ Records release, “Deception,” and have previewed its radio edit for DA. Cedric is prominent throughout the build as Borgore looms with dub power and blasts off with the drop. “Deception” is slated to hit Beatport on March 18th while Cedric will hold down his hometown of Miami during the city’s biggest week.Posted by
Carnage has conquered trap over the past few months and now the Guatemalan producer is experimenting with the harder sounds of house. He showed his production chops with the electro-house cut, “Incredible,” alongside Borgore, and now Carnage is returning to the punching beat booms with his latest production, “Mr. Lover.”
His latest track is another collaboration, this time with L.A. based KillaGraham. The two producers incorporate grinding bass groans with charging synth dives on “Mr. Lover,” supplying listeners with another electro-driven output. Combing their gritty bass line with soft feminine vocals on the track, Carnage and KillaGraham form a pulsating production ready for the forthcoming festival season.Posted by
Before I go ahead and even begin this review, I’m going to be up front and admit that I may be the slightest bit biased on this one. Full disclosure: I love everything that Heroes x Villains produces, and this new remix of Borgore and Carnage’s “Incredible” is certainly no exception. The Dirty South duo has once again taken a traditionally clear-cut electro house single and, how shall we say, given it the business–effectively transforming the ear-shattering original into a truly nasty trap remake.
While genre crossovers are not all that rare, a house collaboration from a notoriously dirty dubstep producer and a well-known trap artist is definitely not something you see every day. In fact, it’s something you hardly ever see. Against all odds, dubstep’s raunchiest DJ, Borgore, has teamed up with Carnage, one of trap’s most iconic producers, to create “Incredible,” a dirty house track in the purest (or dirtiest?) sense of the word.
It’s safe to say we didn’t expect to see Borgore release big room house tracks any time soon. In rare form, the audacious dubstep veteran collaborates with trap prodigy, Carnage, to produce a dance floor trembler to rival “Epic.” “Incredible,” set to release on Spinnin’ Records, almost feels like the sequel to the Silva and Quintino original. In the same way Terminator 2 turned up the action, Borgore and Carnage’s sequel turns up the bass. We probably could have just condensed this track description by referring you to the title. Dropping February 4th, the day after the Super Bowl, “Incredible” will either console fans in Monday mourning or continue the celebration. (Let’s go 49ers.)Posted by
Borgore and Miley Cyrus throw cake at each other in the music video for their track, “Decisions.” When we heard the announcement that the duo was collaborating we were shocked, but were more surprised to find that we didn’t hate it.Posted by
Borgore has gone viral with his ‘Bitches Love Cake’ movement and his “Decisions” single, which has
racked up half a million YouTube views in one week. Already a fair balance of electro and dubstep, “Decisions” sees new life with the release of its own EP. Remixes come from Cedric Gervais, who provides the club feel, and Dead Audio, who leads the dubstep down a darker path. Also included is a dub mix, and of course, the original. Jump below the break to listen to the Decisions EP and head to Beatport for the official release from Buygore Records.
