Popular dubstep artist, Borgore, known for his raunchy beats and even raunchier wordplay came to wow his fans in Tempe just between his two big weekend performances at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
Borgore brought his Flex Tour to Tempe, Arizona’s School of Rock on Mill Avenue with Document One, a dubstep duo growing in popularity from support by big time artist.
The Israeli 24-year-old pounded the eardrums of the full-house electro show Thursday. The audience was crammed full of “dude-bros” wearing skateboarding branded shirts and girls attempting to dance in wedges or heels.
Asaf Borger, better known by his stage name Borgore, is a former drummer for the death metal band Shibira. Although Borgore was drawn to the Israel’s club scene which is primarily house and trance, he still is influenced by his earlier genre.
Document One played a long set list. “Clap”, “Rising Higher”, and “Moving Together” built the crowd’s energy and got the room ready for the headliner.
The rowdy crowd sang along with popular songs such as “Nympho” and “Delicious” while sweating out ethanol. The venue’s security was quick to stop any moshing that are typical at Borgore shows.
Borgore’s lyrical prowess relies heavily on innuendo, so it wasn’t much of a surprise when dancers came on stage wearing only underwear and pasties of the artist’s face.
Instead of trying to stem the incessant tide of illicit music downloads, Borgore accepts it as internet fandom and owes his success to viral self-promotion. Buygore, Borgore’s website, even gives out free album downloads.
