Club circuit mainstay DJ and producer Borgeous is constantly adding to his teeming collection of dance hits, and his newest EP Dear Me lives up to his versatile reputation. He masterfully blends future bass with pop-inspired house and infectious vocal accents on the EP’s titular track, setting the tone for the compilation. Switching gears multiple times across the short extended play, Borgeous offers a hip-hop leaning “Alive,” featuring Iamsu! of “Gas Pedal” fame, and even dips into hectic trap territory on “All That I Need.”
Borgeous’ new EP is a well-rounded embodiment of his breadth of production abilities, as well as an inside look at his interests as a musician. The “Sweeter Without You” producer has taken a more experimental approach to his output in recent years — a theme that comes together cohesively on Dear Me.
