Borgore ruined dubstep, per the title of the Israel DJ’s fifth EP, Borgore Ruined Dubstep, but the man who pushed a once-underground sound in the direction of hard rock and mainstream acceptance is only an opening act on this lineup of taste-breaking debasers: Where Google results show that fellow opener Waka Flocka Flame, that post-crunk Atlanta rapper who came up under (but is currently in conflict with) Gucci Mane has ruined everything from “a fan’s marriage” to “every song he’s in,” headlining L.A. electro don Steve Aoki has supposedly botched both “Kid Cudi’s ‘Pursuit of Happiness’” and “the long-haired look for Asian guys.” The exception, of course, is Pharrell Williams, the singer and former Neptunes producer who has contributed to universally acknowledged articles of greatness such as Wreckx-N-Effect’s “Rump Shaker,” Ludacris’s “Southern Hospitality,” and Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky.”
