Datsik, Canada’s sensational electronic dance music artist is bringing his signature sounds to the Newport Music Hall!
Datsik (birth name Troy Beetles) was born in Kelowna (British Columbia, Canada) in 1988 and is a music producer and DJ. He began his musical journey after attending the 2008 Shambhala electronic music festival. He was inspired to produce music after seeing DJ and producer Excision play a set. While his musical style can be generally classified as EDM, it’s best described as a blend of Dubstep, drumstep, drum and bass, bass house, electro house, moombahcore, and trap. He’s renowned for keeping an inherently classic vibe to his sound (despite the evolution of the EDM genre) and he said in an interview, “I think it’s a matter of mixing the old with the new. You can’t really do that if you’re playing only brand new stuff. You can’t train hop too hard. So that being said sometime I take elements from those tracks and mix them with new tracks like drums from a new track, vocals from an old track, and throw them on top of a new track while performing it. I think doing stuff like that bridges the gap from the old and the new.” He’s had a stellar career with 3 albums, 3 extended plays, and he’s performed with Steve Aoki, Rusko, Bassnectar, Skream, DJ Craze, Benny Benassi, Nero, and many others.
