Get ready to start 2014 out with maximum firepower at Datsik embarks on his 2014 Digital Assassins Tour (dates below) bringing along some of his favorite bass loving peers. With only a handful of dates announced so far, and more to be announced soon, be sure not to miss one of the hardest hitting dubstep producers in the game today.
Hailing from British Columbia, the Canadian native has been touring show and festivals non-stop, constantly building his name and making connections with other artists. Collaborations with Bassnectar, Diplo, and The Chemical Brothers verify that Datsik’s talent exceeds beyond a bass shaker blasting dirty synths. He personally describes dubstep as the “bastardization of electronic music” and attributes the synthesis of so many different music elements to the genre’s growing popularity. Combining his own experiences and tastes from the genres of hip hop, drum and bass, electronic sampling, and U.K. garage (to name a few), Datsik melds these sounds like an audio seamstress to create some of the most epic bass anthems today.

 

 

Datsik’s most recent EP “Let It Burn” is now available for purchase or free download through Firepower Records and features 10 tracks full of filthy bass with strong elements of hip hop and reggae.  He is also working on a forthcoming debut album VITAMIN D, through Dim Mak Records. In addition to the wall shaking bangers we can expect from any Datsik release, this album tests new audio explorations with collaborations with KORN frontman Jonathan Davis, west coast DJ Z-Trip, and psy-electronic rock band Infected Mushroom.
“I’ve been a KORN fan since back in the day,” Datsik explains about Jonathan Davis, who reached out to him directly to collaborate on KORN’s 2011 genre-defying album The Path of Totality. “He was so complimentary about our music and how much he loved it. So when he said he wanted to work with us, we couldn’t say yes fast enough.” The spooky resulting track “Evilution” was built from another Jonathan Davis collaboration, this time with Israeli psy-trance band Infected Mushroom. “Blending dubstep with psy-trance and Jonathan Davis sounds kind of insane,” Datsik admits, “but the track came out great and I’m stoked on it.”

 

 

Along with the stunning visuals of the one of a kind Vortex Lumen, Datsik will be joined on stage with the growing talents of Herobust and Getter.  Both have proven to provide the speaker-destroying skill that is the perfect compliment to headliner Datsik while also experimenting with different sounds and collaborations that continue to push the boundaries of dubstep. Accelerated energy, mind exploding visuals and one of a kind stage theatrics – not to mention the star studded talent – are just a few of the reasons  the Digital Assassins Tour is a cannot miss for any true basshead.

A hybrid child of the 203 & 860, Seth would save up any allowance money he had and raid the dance section of his local CD store for anything with a 4X4 beat. By high school, he organized his area’s first electronic event. While this proved to be a disaster, he wrote a killer college acceptance letter about it - thus a music journalist was born. Today he continues to document from behind the keyboard. When he’s not searching for the perfect emoji or making festival posters/totems, he enjoys long walks into parallel universes, pulling off shameless dance moves, and leading the fight against kids from CT who feel wearing cowboy hats is okay.
