Datsik Brings Big Bass to Fourth of July at Revolution Live
It is a wonder why someone with a name as cool as "Troy Beetles" needs a stage name. Either way, Beetles, AKA Datsik, brings his hard-hitting alloy of bass-heavy dubstep, bombastic house, and funky hip-hop to Revolution Live on the Fourth of July.
Canadian-born, Steve Aoki-mentored, Datsik has been steadily gaining a name for himself as a purveyor of an eclectic array of sounds. He remixes a spectrum of other artists' works and released his own well-received debut, Vitamin D, on Aoki's Dim Mak Records and the follow-up EP, Cold Blooded, on his own Firepower Records. Datsik seems to be one to watch.
Live, this should be a cochlea-pulverizing event, with Datsik renowned for bass lines of Richter scale proportions and drumbeats that would dwarf the explosions of cannons on a Revolutionary War battlefield.

Fans of his recent EP might also be hoping for some surprise guest appearances. The collaborations with Canadian underground MC Young Sin and Snak the Ripper add a lyrical richness to the maelstrom of sounds that rarely retreat to the background. The Fourth of July red, white, and blue will be Day-Glo in Fort Lauderdale this year, the fireworks will be coming from the DJ booth, and there will not be a limp hot dog or stone-cold burger in sight.
