Ink Events has announced the return of Solaris Music Festival to Toronto for the 2019 holiday season. Dubbed as “Toronto’s largest winter music festival,” the festival’s reincarnation came as a pleasant surprise to the to previous festival-goers after a brief one-year hiatus. Held over Dec. 26-27, Solaris locks in deadmau5 and Above & Beyond as headliners for the indoor event held at REBEL Nightclub.

In addition to the daily headliners, Solaris has announced a solidifying trail of support from routine visitors Seven Lions, i_o, and Borgore, and tops the bill with a mau5trap stage takeover in the nightclub’s NOIR room. Since its first iteration in 2012, the two-day festival has undergone a handful of changes to support the shifting music trends in Toronto.

After skipping his annual traditionary VELD Festival after party set due to touring commitments and a standalone performance in nearby city London, Ontario, deadmau5’s return to the leviathan nightclub is one of high anticipation across the city. In addition to his performance, he invites label mates No Mana, Qrion, Bentley Dean and Nofone for the party.

Saturday Night Session 025: Borgore ranks his favorite fast food chains and gives insight into the creative process behind his new single

Saturday Night Session 025: Borgore ranks his favorite fast food chains and gives insight into the creative process behind his new singleBorgore

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.

Being a die-hard Borgore fan requires one to have a variety of interests; an affinity for a wide-range of musical genres; and an open-minded sense of humor. Born in Tel Aviv, Israel, Yosef Asaf Borger is known for his hard-hitting releases in addition to his edgy and carefully crafted public facing persona. His persona has come to define him as an artist almost as much as his music, and one thing the artist can promise is that despite being controversial at times, he certainly won’t leave anyone bored.

Everything from Borger’s lyrics to his song art and social media presence are sensationalized, often times featuring the producer surrounded by half naked women who call him ‘daddy.’ Borger’s is known for debuting songs on Pornhub, and his personality shines through unprovoked, such as when the artist confirmed that he could never pick a favorite song because he is ‘a polygamist’ with his music. His latest single serves as a continuation of his Pornhub partnership. The song is titled “911,” and it features adult film aficionado Abella Danger. The track opens with a bass-laden melody and carries into hard-hitting dubstep drops paired with Danger’s sultry vocals.

Borger speaks about his creative process for the new single, stating, “I wrote ‘911’ and didn’t even know if it’d be on the album, it’s so different. I was sitting on the instrumental and felt the only thing that would make it perfect is a sexy female vocal on it.” He continues, “I met Abella a while back on my “Savages” music video shoot (she and the rest of the girls killed that music video), and saw her around just regular LA hangouts. She’s one of the nicest and most humble people I’ve come to know, she was just the perfect fit. We met 2 or 3 times to record the verse because she’s such a perfectionist, funny enough I eventually just ended up using the first take.”

While Borger has historically been most closely associated with dubstep and trap music, his musical progression since his start in the electronic music industry is noteworthy. He has released a variety of musical genres, and the artist continues to push the boundaries of his style while still delivering dubstep tracks to a fanatical core fanbase. Borger speaks about this, saying, “I like producing all music! I just enjoy producing, in general. I’d say the more complex the more interesting for me, hence the dubstep or jazz.”

Borgore recently released single “Summerlake,” where he enlisted himself as the vocalist on the track. Utilizing the producer’s own vocals have been a trend that many of the electronic music producers have been experimenting with as of late, and Borger comments on his decision to do so, noting, “I like producing with my own vocals cause its more control over the song and I’m a control freak. It is also a much quicker process. I feel like my audience would like to hear what I have to say and a lot of the time I say things no one else would.”

When asked what fans can expect moving forward from him, he states that ‘fans should never expect anything from him because he is very unexpected.’ The producer crafted a hour-long Saturday Night Session that is filled with cutting drops and energetic builds that is sure to get the listener energized for a big Saturday night. Borger’s parting message is that the mix is ‘so good that people won’t even bother leaving their house.’

The last 6-10 tweets on your account have been about food, and more specifically fast food. Give us your top three fast food places please.

Oporto no question is my #1. McDonald’s is #2 because I don’t care what people say, everything on the menu is amazing and consistent. Sorry. #3 is A&W but only in Canada because of this habanero chicken sandwich they have that is flying under the radar.

What inspired your YouTube series, Lunch Time?

My YouTube show is the mastermind of my management and myself. We tried to find a way to deliver funny content that people can watch while they are eating lunch.

While you are most closely associated with dubstep/trap music, you have really spanned a variety of genres. Which is the most fun for you to produce?

I like producing all music! I just enjoy producing, in general. I’d say the more complex the more interesting for me, hence the dubstep or jazz.

What can we expect from you moving forward?

Moving forward you really can’t expect anything from me because I am very unexpected.

We know you lent your own vocals on recent single “Summerlake.” Is producing a song that uses your own vocals a different creative process for you emotionally?

I like producing with my own vocals cause its more control over the song and I’m a control freak. It is also a much quicker process. I feel like my audience would like to hear what I have to say and a lot of the time I say things no one else would.

What is your craziest fan story?

I can’t really pick one because I’m crazy, my fans are crazy, and I think it’s crazy when someone’s normal.

What is your favorite song of all time?

I can’t choose just one song, it’s impossible. I’m a polygamist with my music.

What kind of a Saturday night is your “Saturday Night Session” going to get listeners ready for?

My Saturday night session probably going to be too good for people to even bother leaving the house.

Snowbombing Canada announces headliners ODESZA and Cardi B for 2018 edition

From Montreal’s Igloofest, to the gone-but-never-forgotten Brrrrr Winter Music Festival in Toronto, Canadians are incredibly fortunate to host a plenitude of outdoor-winter events throughout the years. Though winter is close to being over and the inaugural start to festival season approaches, Snowbombing Canada is here to remind everyone that there’s never a wrong time to party in the snow.

Fusing the worlds of winter-sports and dance music into a winter-wonderland for four days and nights, Snowbombing Canada takes place from April 5–9 amidst Sun Peaks Valley; one of the hidden treasures of Canada’s West coast. With success in booking distinguished and complementary dance/hip-hop headliners, last year’s event saw Kaskade and Ludacris close out the event.

As the 2018 edition nears, fan-favorite duo ODESZA and hip-hop queen Cardi B are set to headline the “Forest Stage”, appropriately located in between the panoramic views of snow-capped mountains and towering trees. Boasting a plethora of additional acts like Black Tiger Sex Machine, Gorgon City and Troyboi, Snowbombing has curated a detailed lineup that suits the festival’s exuberant vibe.

Snowboarders and skiers are treated to the best of both worlds; shredding during the day and dancing at night. Activities like ‘Alpine Yoga’, ‘The Snowlympics’ and some cheeky ‘Chair Life Speed Dating’ add unique attributes that turn guests from attendees, into Snowbombing veterans.
