Saturday Night Session 027: Borgeous discusses how bass music continues to inspire him coming out of recent EP release, ‘Lights Out’

Saturday Night Session 027: Borgeous discusses how bass music continues to inspire him coming out of recent EP release, ‘Lights Out’Borgeous Press Shots

Few moments are more sacred than the reprieve Saturday night provides from the daily grind of school and work. Its importance is meant to be emphasized, and thus, a feature dedicated to “doing the night right” was born. Saturday Night Sessions are set around energizing mixes meant to get the party started. New or old, each episode has one cornerstone thing in similarity: they serve as the perfect backdrop for the weekend pregame.

DJ and producer Borgeous is long-known for his ability to fluctuate between the trap and dubstep genres while also maintaining a balancing act with catchy commercial releases. His commercial leaning tracks feature flowing melodies without the hard-hitting edge his other works contain. While many producers who have perfected the art of a heavy drop retain hints of intensity in their commercial leaning releases, Borgeous has the ability to display two very distinct creative sides that do not crossover, giving him a dynamic sound and therefore fanbase.

The Las Vegas based producer, whose real name is John Borger, just released a four track EP focusing in on his bass-driven side called Lights Out, and consistent with his previous releases, he has gone straight for an unrelenting compilation of live-performance worthy tracks. He speaks on the EP, giving fans insight into his inspiration for the music and where they can expect it to come to life, stating, “Lights Out is an EP directly connected to my current live shows. I wanted to release music that fit the harder, more bass-heavy sets that I have been playing out at clubs and festivals recently.”

Borger also notes that a crowd’s reaction to his music is one of his biggest inspirations, and that as of late, he has been really inspired by heavier sets at his live shows. The producer is nearing his fifth year with a heavy tour schedule, which is often rumored to be the amount of time it takes for an artist to ‘burn out’ of life on the road. He speaks about what keeps him going, and why burn out won’t be a problem for him.

Borger says, “The energy that electronic music brings to clubs and festivals is unmatched. I wanted to be a part of that movement…Dance music has always been a part of me and has been something that I’ve always been extremely passionate about. I don’t see that changing for me, so burning out is something that has never even crossed my mind.”

When asked what kind of a Saturday Night his Saturday Night Session will get fans ready for, Borger comments, “It gets them ready for a hard-hitting set that they can expect to hear at the next Borgeous show they go to.”

_____________________________________________________________________

What initially led you into electronic music production?
The energy that electronic music brings to clubs and festivals is unmatched. I wanted to be a part of that movement.

You’re just hit your five year mark of heavy touring after your breakout single ‘Tsunami.’ Many say that most major artists have 5 years until they need to scale back or burn out. What are your thoughts on that theory?
Dance music has always been a part of me and has been something that I’ve always been extremely passionate about. I don’t see that changing for me, so burning out is something that has never even crossed my mind.

What parts of life do you draw the most inspiration from when it comes to producing music?
I get my inspiration from everything going on around me. But most importantly, I draw inspiration from a crowd’s reaction and response to different sounds and situations.

Can you tell us about the EP you just released?
Lights Out is an EP directly connected to my current live shows. I wanted to release music that fit the harder, more bass-heavy sets that I have been playing out at clubs and festivals recently.

What are your tour essentials- items you can’t live without when you are on the road?
Hat, sunglasses, & a pair of Adidas

Any guilty pleasures?
Candy

What kind of Saturday Night is your Saturday Night Session getting listeners ready for?
It gets them ready for a hard-hitting set that they can expect to hear at the next Borgeous show they go to.

Premiere: Borgeous debuts addictive first release from forthcoming ‘Lights Out’ EPIMG 6248

Borgeous has long been known for his ability to craft radio-friendly releases juxtaposed with dance floor-ready dubstep tunes. The multi-faceted producer likes to keep fans guessing what he may produce next, but his forthcoming Lights Out EP looks to be a compilation featuring some of the producer’s hardest-hitting dubstep tracks that fans will likely recognize from his live sets.

Borgeous has released the first track from the EP, and the song will leave the listener craving more. “Runnin’” manages to blend a catchy vocal with an intense series of drops that are ready for the main stage.

“To me, ‘Runnin” is the perfect combination of the past and the present,” the producer said of the tune in a press release. “It combines both vocals and high-energy builds that can be seen in my past productions, with the heavier dubstep sounds that I love playing out live in my sets today.”

Borgeous has been teasing his Lights Out EP on his social media platforms, and fans can expect for the producer to drop singles from the compilation ahead of the EP’s full release.

First Listen: Borgeous and RUNAGROUND craft a break-up anthem meant for moving on, share accompanying visual [Watch]

First Listen: Borgeous and RUNAGROUND craft a break-up anthem meant for moving on, share accompanying visual [Watch]IMG 2023

Borgeous and RUNAGROUND’s 2017 single, “Coffee Can Money” offered a temperate glimpse of the sound that resulted when both artists merged their creative sensibilities. Two-years later, Borgeous and RUNAGROUND return to the electronic release ring together, to re-envision break-up on “Better Anyway.” Whereas the concept of a romantic split often sonically translates to poignant productions characterized by their low tones, languid beats, and wistful lyrics, “Better Anyway” breaks this musical mold, to perceive break-up in an optimistic manner.

“‘Better Anyway’ is about heartbreak and being able to see how unhealthy a relationship was after it’s over. It’s a break-up anthem for when you realize that going through all the bad stuff made you come out of the situation a better person at the end of the day.”

-Borgeous

Lyrically, “Better Anyway” attributes a valiance not only to accepting what is, but to moving forward with a spirited sense of self-possession. The sanguine pledge to push on that’s audible in the single’s lyrical content is complemented by the upbeat arrangement of “Better Anyway.” The single’s chord progressions climb in tandem with the vocals, while crisp beats ground the production at the break downs. “Better Anyway’s” memorable, pop-leaning lyrical hook and general crossover appeal are a collective invitation to listeners: head in the direction of the replay button.

A collection of retrospective reminiscences, the official music video for “Better Anyway” flits from one memory shared between the visual’s two lovers, to the next. The visual record of previously existent intimacy lends depth to the lyrical narrative that “Better Anyway” tells. “I loved bringing this song to life with my good friend RUNAGROUND,” Borgeous told Dancing Astronaut. “As soon as I heard the song I had a vision for the music video, and am really happy with how it came out.”

As “Better Anyway” exemplifies, the collaborative power inherent in a Borgeous and RUNAGROUND production only amplifies with each successive joint release. “Better Anyway” is out now via Armada Music.

Five Loud Luxury cuts to throw on rotation ahead of the duo’s performance at NYC’s Marquee Nightclub

Five Loud Luxury cuts to throw on rotation ahead of the duo’s performance at NYC’s Marquee Nightclub25299175 1328534723918330 1032811195551577926 N

Loud Luxury clinched the attention of the musical mainstream with the release of their undeniable hit, “Body.” Armed with an animated lyrical hook and an equally vivacious beat well suited for open-air dancing, “Body” quickly became a sonic sensation. The single catapulted the Canadian duo, comprised of Andrew Fedyk and Joe Depace, into musical centrality. Loud Luxury has gotten mileage out of “Body”: the tune earned Fedyk and Depace the 2019 Juno Award for “Dance Recording of the Year” and attracted remixes from a number of adept electronic entities like Dzeko and Ørjan Nilsen.

“Body” and its widespread acclaim, however, is but one part of the ongoing sonic narrative of Loud Luxury. Dancing Astronaut takes Loud Luxury listeners beyond “Body,” to highlight five inclusions of Loud Luxury’s catalog that are veritable playlist staples. Listeners can catch Loud Luxury live from NYC’s Marquee Nightclub on May 3.


Joji – “SLOW DANCING IN THE DARK (Loud Luxury Remix)”

Singer-songwriter Joji experimented with indie sound on his ruminative release, “SLOW DANCING IN THE DARK.” Whereas Joji’s original aches, Loud Luxury’s take on the tune dulls the emotional edge that Joji cuts. Loud Luxury equip “SLOW DANCING IN THE DARK” with a quicker pace and a build aided by trumpeting synths to re-imagine the production with a dance personality.

Loud Luxury & Marc Noir – “Maze”

“Body” wasn’t the beginning. Loud Luxury convened with Marc Noir for the 2014 single, “Maze.” One of the earliest releases of Loud Luxury’s career, “Maze” taps into the anthemic big room sound that best befits festival sets. The track’s use of momentous builds and drops yields an adrenaline spiking audibly intended to be played at the highest possible volume.

Loud Luxury“Fill Me In”

The lyrical narrative of “Fill Me In” tells the story of two smitten lovers who attempt to evade their parents’ notice when they sneak off to rendezvous. The lyrical content of the track effects a certain sense of speculative narrative drama that is complemented by the tune’s deep tone. The ponderous, cinematic nature of the song derives in part from the lyrics, and from the deep house leaning low-seated synths. Bold piano notes vary the tone.

Borgeous & Loud Luxury – “Going Under”

Loud Luxury worked alongside Borgeous to produce 2016’s “Going Under.” “Going Under” graced the track list of Borgeous’ album released the same year, 13. The buoyant track touts a tropical sound. The lightness of the tune’s tone contrasts with the song’s lyrical content, which traces the not so subtle demise of a relationship.

Charlie Puth ft Kehlani“Done For Me (Loud Luxury Remix)”

In 2018, Loud Luxury extended their effervescent sound to Charlie Puth‘s pop effort, “Done For Me.” Loud Luxury add bold piano chords in their version of Puth’s Kehlani feature, and speed things up just slightly to add a danceable quality to the rework not present in the original. The dark synths that characterize “Body” resurface in this revamp, and can be found at the remix’s drops.

Borgeous teams up with Jordyn Jones on the infectious ‘Leave’

Borgeous teams up with Jordyn Jones on the infectious ‘Leave’AAHwj0oZ

Borgeous continues his pursuit of his place in the dance crossover scene with his latest release, “Leave.” The upbeat track sees the LA-based producer and DJ pair up with rising star Jordyn Jones on the single, adding to an impressive list of past collaborators that includes everyone from Lil’ Jon, to Loud Luxury and Wiz Khalifa and seeing him evolve from making big room to finding stride in rhythmic pop. “Leave” of course is just that, primed for radio play with singalong vocals. Jones’s lyrics serve as a call for the independent woman and highlight the empowering nature of leaving a bad relationship. But “Leave” also acknowledges the reality we so often encounter in any relationship: easier said than done.

Paired with a music video, “Leave” is out now via Geosus Records.

Borgeous and Zack Martino team up for progressive house anthem ‘Make Me Yours’Borgeous Make Me Yours

Newcomer Zack Martino has teamed up with veteran progressive house extraordinaire Borgeous for a new collaboration titled “Make Me Yours.” Those who witnessed Borgeous perform at EDC Las Vegas saw the producer debut the song, and since then, fans have anxiously awaited the track’s full release.

Soaring vocals merge with a catchy melody to give the track the ultimate radio appeal. Martino speaks enthusiastically about the collaboration’s release, calling it one of his favorites.

“The last year has been incredible for me,  having released a ton of remixes then having my first major release ‘Hold On to Me’ go No. 1,” Martino says. “Doing this collaboration with a great artist like Borgeous I knew we had to go back to our progressive house roots and I’m extremely happy with the outcome, it’s one of my favorites.”

Borgeous describes how the track takes him back to his earlier production days.

“This song brings me back to where it all started sonically,” he says. “I wanted to put out a record that aligned with ‘Invincible,’ ‘Wildfire’ and ‘Zero Gravity.’ This song is a special one.’

The track marks Borgeous’s long-awaited return to Armada Music.
