From the Official Press Release: Lock up your livestock. BORGORE—bass culture’s enfant terrible—has returned to terrorize speakers and stages yet again with a new release and tour. The man who claims he ''ruined dubstep'' will release FLEX, his fifth EP of original material, February 28 on his own Buygore label and will then will follow up with a massive 37-date headlining tour that includes stops at Ultra Music Festival and Coachella. Tickets are on sale now at borgore.wantickets.com.

FLEX represents the latest salvo in the 24-year-old producer/songwriter/DJ’s rapid ascent. The formally trained jazz musician’s original tracks and remixes (spanning M.I.A., Rusko, and Britney Spears to LMFAO and Passion Pit) have become club smashes. He recently collaborated with Diplo on the track “Animal” off of Yelawolf’s smash, Eminem-cosigned debut Radioactive. FLEX, though, proves BORGORE’s most ambitious effort yet. “Kiss My Lips”—a monstrous collaboration with Dev, the dance-music siren behind hits for Far East Movement and David Guetta—is already spawning dancefloor mayhem. There’s two versions of the title track—one a pounding dubstep version, the other a hip-hop flavored take influenced by the “trap music” of Waka Flocka Flame and Lex Luger—which prove BORGORE’s hardest, raunchiest beats yet.
