Borgore showing a more emotional side on new track ‘Best’

Continuing his onslaught of cross-genre hits, Borgore unleashes his latest melodic single “Best” in tandem with its official music video. “Best” is a sultry electronic record that veers away from his usual brand of dubstep as a bass-led ballad and his most personal record to date. It’s written about the ending of a relationship and illustrating the producer’s more emotional side that’s remained out of the public eye.


Its visual treatment is a cinematic masterpiece, with a music video that unravels with the plot and optics of a blockbuster. From director Karam Gill, “Best” tells the compelling murder mystery story of a mob boss, entwining a husband, his wife and his mistress that results in a surprising finale.

So.. yesterday finally the wait was over and High on Life has seen its release!

After building a ton of momentum through a myriad of live plays and features on high-profile radio shows across the Trance scene, Rodg’s debut album finally sees the light of day. ‘High On Life’ has been put out on Amsterdam-based record label Armada Music today, hitting #11 in the iTunes US Dance Charts mere seconds after its release.

Listen to High on Life
From title track ‘High On Life’ to tracks such as ‘Alibi’, ‘Flaked’ and ‘Wired’, Rodg’s debut album harbors full range of irresistible cuts. The album is perfectly balanced between fresh creations and tracks that have already proven themselves as fan favorites, with ‘Fire’ (feat. Patrick Baker), ‘Heatwave’, ‘Artefact’, and ‘Leave A Light On’ (with Ruben de Ronde and Louise Rademakers) as sterling examples. Additionally, a lot of the album’s tracks had already reached a worldwide audience before today’s release of the album, racking up multiple plays on Armin van Buuren’s A State Of Trance radio show.


Rodg: High On Life’ is about enjoying life to the fullest. For me, the past two years have been absolutely amazing. I’ve traveled to so many places in the world and met so many people. Everything from playing at Ushuaïa, A State Of Trance Festival and amazing Armada Nights in Asia to simply grabbing drinks or dinner with friends and family or enjoying a quiet evening at home made me feel ‘High On Life’. I’ve tried to translate all of those experiences to an album and this is the result”.

But … what did Rodg do right before the release of this album?

He went out with his buddy Ruben de Ronde to celebrate and watch a football match.

Let’s have a look while Ruben asks him a couple of questions while driving to the stadium… Rodge even replied to my question about how excited he was!! 🙂

After what seemed like an eternal tease for all the trance fans who listened to it during a couple of episode of ASOT where Armin van Buuren himself supported it, finally out today this RAMazing tune by RAM and STINE GROVE 

Dreamy trance vibes and hypnotic vocals are some of the secret ingredients of this masterpiece. Its catchy beats will get you hooked by the very first listening and will drag you into a trance state of mind.

Goosebumps are granted!
