Borgore has seen a lot of crazy stuff: As you’ll learn in this Playboy.com exclusive, fans have thrown dildos on stage. The Israeli DJ/producer has seen his star—and notoriety—rise with the dominance of dance music and festival culture. He has collaborated with Miley Cyrus and Waka Flocka, all while amassing his own group of die-hard fans whose backside-selfies he often retweets.
Raised in Tel Aviv, Borgore came to prominence with the dubstep explosion of the early ‘10s. His bass-heavy sound and over-the-top personality have spawned a mini-empire in his web shop/record label Buygore. If his latest track and music video “100s” are any indication, he’s not shy about the success either. (“Look at me, I’m hella cocky!”) He’s cultivated the image of EDM’s ballin’ bad boy, but there’s more to him that than. “It’s not about being a DJ,” he tells us. “It’s about writing music.” In this video, Playboy taps into Borgore’s world, including the failures that led to success.
