Since launching the Datsik brand, Troy Beetles continues to evolve as a solo artist all the while pushing his beloved bass music world to new lengths, both on a personal artistry level and as a genre as a whole. From video game-loving fanboy-his moniker derives from his old Xbox Live gamertag-to chart-topping producer, internationally touring artist, and owner and founder of the enterprising Firepower Records, Datsik is poised to make bass music the sound of the future with his recent Down 4 My Ninjas EP (Nov. 2014 / Firepower Records) and upcoming release Smoke Bomb ft. Snoop Dogg (Nov. 2015 / Ultra Records).
Beetles launched Datsik in 2007, when the burgeoning producer began dabbling with original hip-hop and dubstep productions in his Canadian hometown of Kelowna, British Columbia. In 2008, he met and began to work with Canadian dubstep legend Excision, who later released their collaborations on his Rottun Recordings. In the years to come, the duo-both as a cohesive unit and individual artists-are credited for taking the Canadian bass music scene from its local roots to worldwide acclaim and for pioneering and shaping the bass-heavy North American dubstep sound.
