Borgeous “Ruin LA”

Since the start of his illustrious career, Platinum selling Billboard charting DJ and producer Borgeous has taken over the dance music scene with worldwide hits and sold out festivals. Recognized for his ferocious blend of melodic pop and anthemic house music, Borgeous has gained notoriety as one of the most exciting DJs in EDM today. As a go-to collaborator, he has worked with the likes of Julia Michaels, Lil Jon, Sean Paul, Dirty Heads, Waka Flocka, and more.

Born and raised in Miami, Florida, John Borger immersed himself into the electronic dance scene soon after moving to Los Angeles and found musical inspiration through iconic artists such as Kaskade, Skrillex and David Guetta. Borger started off as a DJ in the Los Angeles nightclubs that he worked for. Dedicated to honing his craft, Borger would come in during the afternoons to practice his sets before performing them throughout the night. Soon, John Borger became “Borgeous”, and released his first single “Tsunami” in 2013.

“Tsunami” was created alongside acclaimed production duo DVBBS and quickly became a massive hit, reaching #1 in 15 different countries. A year later, Borgeous’ remix with Tinie Tempah “Tsunami (Jump)” reached #1 in the UK once again. “Tsunami” has become an iconic gametime track for American professional sports teams, including the US Army and Navy Academy Football teams. The hit song reached platinum status and has become one of the most popular dance tracks of all time.

Other Billboard charting hit songs by Borgeous include three tracks with Julia Michaels “Invincible”, “They Don’t Know Us”, and “Wildfire”, “This Could Be Love” feat. Delaney Jane and Shaun Frank, and “Zero Gravity” with Lights. His 2016 debut album,13, reached #1 on iTunes and showcased a collection of acclaimed tracks with collaborations including Lil Jon, Sean Paul, Loud Luxury, Fatman Scoop, Neon Hitch and more.

“Ruin LA” is Borgeous’ upcoming single six years in the making. The mesmerizingly dreamy and atmospheric electronic-drenched pop single narrates how love and loss can often taint a whole city, leaving with it bittersweet memories that are better off left behind. Written by Borgeous, Cara Salimando, and Jonny Price, the lyrics chronicle LA party vignettes met with retrospective outlooks on past heartbreak. Borgeous reveals, “ ‘Ruin LA’ touches me in a way no song ever has before.”

After performing in over 110 countries around the world, Borgeous’ chart-topping dance anthems continue to break records. “Ruin LA” is his latest release.
