Borgore @ Starlight Ballroom 11/24/10

Published on November 27th, 2010

A show of epic proportions went down Wednesday night at the Starlight Ballroom in Philadelphia. Headlined by Borgore, the event was put together by Dub Nation and featured numerous acts such as Down Jones & Beastmode, Sugar Shay, and Flufftronix. We arrived at the venue around midnight, just in time for Flufftronix’s set. The Philly-based producer, who most recently did a mix for Mad Decent, threw down some awesome heavy bass that really got the crowd excited.

After Flufftronix had played for about an hour, Borgore was introduced and he seamlessly took over. Inviting people onto the stage and moving around the booth, he immediately put off a super dynamic, party vibe that was pretty unique. Aside from laying down heavy dubstep all night, Borgore could be found rapping over many of the tracks, making for a very energetic show. The energy was further amped up by MC Sharpness, who kept everyone hyped for each of the sets. The crowd itself was pretty varied; there were at times several mosh pits going at once, while there was plenty of room in the back to get your individual wobble on. Borgore’s set got progressively harder and heavier as the night went on, as he moved from his crowd-pleasing remix of “Sleepyhead” to some much grimey-er tracks. As the show began to reach its 4am finish, Borgore’s crew started mixing their way into the crowd, as well as letting tons of people on stage to dance. Overall, the night provided some of the best dubstep I’ve seen live, really hope to catch all of these guys in Philly again sometime soon.

Check out some pictures of Flufftronix below, as well as some tracks from both artists. I wasn’t able to get on stage for photos of Borgore, but I’ll post a video soon so you can get an even better idea of the madness.
