Borgore Talks Miley Cyrus Being a "Cool Chick," Transitioning From Deathcore to Dubstep

Dubstep producer and DJ Asaf "Borgore" Borger is scheduled to perform Friday, May 2, at the Pressroom in Phoenix. This Israeli-native is known for his brash and brutal style of dubstep, which he named "gorestep."

Borgore is one of the pioneers of modern dubstep in America. His 2010 breakout hit, "Nympho," was a vulgar, asses-out anthem for freaks everywhere. He's since been known for his collaboration with Miley Cyrus on "Decisions," friend Carnage on "Incredible," as well as Waka Flocka Flame on "Wild Out."

Like his music, Borgore says what he thinks and tells it like it is. He isn't too concerned with political correctness or caring what you think about him. Up on the Sun spoke with Borgore on the phone last week about life, being in a metal band, and what it was like collaborating with the most controversial woman in pop music.
