The Canadian producer and DJ Troy Beetles, better known as Datsik, is set to Embark on the FirePower tour.  Let me tell you why you should care.

With the recent and ever-growing success of dubstep in the world of EDM and beyond, it’s easy to find yourself lost amidst a sea of DJs, producers and remixes.  Sorting the good from the bad is as simple as listening to everything and picking out the best, I'm just trying to save you some time.  If you can’t take my word for it, there is no doubt Datsik’s resume and references will convince you; our home grown Kelowna boy is at the top of the bass game.

Datsik aka Troy Beetles
Kelowna, BC
Age: 24

Work History: 2009 - Present

After collaborating with fellow Canadian Excision on several noteable tracks, 
Dastik stormed Beatports’ hot list with several #1 releases including remixes 
of The Crystal Method, Wu-Tang, Noisia and Diplo

Datsik’s undeniably addictive blend of future-tech and hip-hop lead to shows
all over North America, playing with the likes of Steve Aoki, Rusko, 
Bassnectar, Skream, DJ Craze and Nero, at festivals like Coachella, Electric 
Daisy Carnival and the World Electronic Music Festival.

In 2012, Datsik released Vitamin D, on Dim Mak Records, founded by the 
eminent Steve Aoki  himself in LA. This record featured 12 tracks of 
absolutely punishing bass with guest artists like Downlink, Z-Trip, Infected 
Mushroom, Jonathan Davis, Messinian, and Snak the Ripper.


The days spent sifting through records at a store looking for a gem are all but gone, replaced by a Blogs, Beatport, hypeM, and Juno all pushing a million artists from a trillion genres.  Save yourself some precious time and get some Datsik on your headphones.  Once you are hooked, go have your ribs rattled and retina ripped by 50,000 watts of PK sound married to the Visual Vortex live on the Firepower Tour with Getter and Bare Noize.
