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 as well as the genre as a whole. From bedroom producer to chart-topping artist, internationally touring act, and owner and founder of the enterprising Firepower Records, Datsik is poised to make bass music the sound of the future with his recent Darkstar EP (Mar. 2016 / Firepower Records) and the now infamous “Smoke Bomb” feat. Snoop Dogg (Nov 2015 / Ultra Records).
With another EP due just before the New Year, Datsik has big plans for 2017. Beetles welcomes the challenge, though. It’s what’s kept him developing since those bedroom producer days, and it’s what verifies Datsik as one of the leading figures in the bass music scene of today and tomorrow.
