Israeli dubstep sensation Borgore stops by the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus to talk about making his popular "Decisions" music video, working with Miley Cyrus, the recent rise in popularity of dubstep, and starting his own Buygore music label.
Though he's noted for exploding out of the Israeli scene, Borgore says, "When I started doing what I'm doing, I was looking at more of an English scene. Dubstep back in the day was very English. It wasn't Israeli."
Borgore is so ingrained in the genre that some credit him with creating it while others criticize him for ruining it. But he clarifies that three or four years ago, dubstep was much more mellow and he just took it to another level with his music.
"The first time I heard dubstep, it was almost religious enlightenment," he says. "It was the music I was looking for my whole life. I'm serious."
Regarding his "Decisions" song and music video featuring Miley Cyrus, Borgore says, "It's one of the things that I'm really proud about that I've done." He adds, "I think conceptually it's a good song, as far as the idea behind it."
Now, he's investing in working with up-and-coming artists with his own label, Buygore. "There's a lot of kids that I think are super talented," he says, "and I just want to give them an option to put their music out there."
While Borgore was supposed to drop a new album around May, instead he might be releasing two really long EPs. He has a bunch of new songs that he plans to start releasing very soon. "There will be previews soon," he says. "It's not like you have to wait 'til May to hear it."
