Someone call VH1 because Datsik is having the best year ever! The Canadian bassmaestro kicked off 2012 by wrapping up and promoting his debut album Vitamin D which was released in April on Steve Aoki’s label Dim Mak. Summer was spent touring the country and jamming in the studio, followed up by the Firepower Tour which kicked off at the beginning of fall and hosts Datsik as the headliner of the show’s super-dubby roster. Joonbug had a chance to catch up with Datsik, born Troy Beetles, last week to hear all about his busy schedule and see what’s in store for 2013.
