RM: What made you want to transition from creating Deathcore to Dubstep music? BORGORE: I just enjoy the freedom of being a producer. I can take it wherever I want. When I was in a band, there were three other people always saying, “I like this break, I don’t like this break, I like this feature, I don’t like this feature.” With production, no one can tell me anything. RM: There are many talented artists signed to Buygore Records. Can you share any insight into future plans for the label? BORGORE: I opened my label back in 2010, and I’m open to releasing as many genres as possible. I think that the labels I look up to are releasing as many as possible, too. I’ll release anything - Hip-Hop, Pop, to Dubstep. RM: What was your biggest inspiration for arguably one of your most popular songs, Decisions? BORGORE: The inspiration was the transition to Los Angeles from Israel. It was like Decisions, ya know? Like, what’s going on? It was weird for me, I had to get used to it, ya know? I love Los Angeles, I love Israel - it was this whole concept inside of me between my new and old life. It was a culture shock.
BORGORE: Every collab is different, I loved all of them. I don’t think I have anyone specific in mind, it’s just a different experience with each and every one of them. RM: Is it true that you were a significant influence on Miley Cyrus’ change in musical style? BORGORE: I think that Miley was going that direction anyway, eventually. I think I was a part of her journey. RM: Can we expect some new bangers from Borgore in the next few months? BORGORE: Oh yeah, well there’s actually one track that’s not a banger at all. It’s gonna be shifting, music-wise, from my end. I’m gonna release a lot of music, some new videos and some new speakers too. RM: Recently I read an article about the feminist Molly Hankins. What was it like working with a feminist? Do you think it enhanced Booty for Borgore or ruined it? BORGORE: I had a conversation with someone a couple days ago and we realized that feminism is the right way. There is no other way than feminism. You know what I’m saying? If you’re not a feminist, you’re a chauvinist practically - there is no other way. There has to be equality. So I don’t think there is anything special about working with a feminist, it’s just natural and it’s all part of the journey. •
RM: Over the years you’ve worked with many big names including G-Eazy, Miley Cyrus, Diplo, Waka Flocka, and others. Who was your favorite to collaborate with and why?
