This is one of those rare interviews where I just felt nervous. Just as Skrillex moved from a metal/hardcore band to producing dubstep, Borgore has followed a similar path. The big difference is the persona/character Borgore plays. When you listen to his music and watch his videos, the sexual debauchery is epic. The question: is that really Borgore in real life, or is it a satirical character à la Borat? Talking to Borgore, he is surprisingly down to earth and quite lively, nothing like the party ringleader he plays during his live shows. His new album #NewGoreOrder released this week sees him stepping out side the realms of dubstep and exploring the realms of trap and electro while keeping his unique sound front and center.

Producer, artist, and tech guru Brian Transeau stands alone as one of the most unique visionaries in the electronic dance music world. Spanning nearly twenty years, his music has reached the worlds of clubs, radio, TV, movies, and video games. His new album A Song Across Wires is probably his most accessible to date, inspired by the current sounds of electronic dance music as filtered through his creative mind and rendered by his futuristic production techniques.
Ron Slomowicz: I have listened to your new album a couple of different times and it feels like I am at a festival, hearing all the big records at once – but really well-produced. Brian Transeau (BT): Awesome, I really love hearing that. Honestly, it is the first time in years that I have been really inspired by dance music and I feel like this record is one that my fans have wanted me to make for years and I just wasn’t ready to. In this moment, I am deeply inspired by what is actually happening in dance music. It feels so good to hear that, I feel the same way and I can’t wait to share this record with my fans and peers.
