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.
First things first, you better recognize that Steve Aoki stays true to his wild ways even when inside a hotspot like NYC's Lavo Nightclub. Thursday night might have as well been a stage at a festival because that's the type of vibes that went on all night long.
Drawing in tons of party-goers, Lavo filled in quickly to the opening sounds of progressive house Queen, DJ Bambi, who kept it going full force churning out the best of the best in big room house beats until 1am. As the lights dimmed and music dulled, Steve Aoki approached his throne for the night and produced an impeccable two hour set that was nothing short of stunning.
One of the most recognizable and energetic names in the realm that is dance music is Mr. Steve Aoki. The bossman of Dim Mak records is making a stop at the luxe LAVO NYC nightclub this Thursday, Oct. 18th and in proper Aoki fashion some ritual cake throwing may occur or better...a casual stage dive.
A leader in electronic dance music established in 1996, Aoki has a pretty sweet tracklist of production and remix work. His recent album, Wonderland, features top talent such as LMFAO, Wynter Gordon, Laidback Luke, and Lil Jon. While he is a hybrid producer his DJ sets are just as chaotic and filled with gripping progressive and electro beats.
Listen below to his recent set on Electric Area to get a taste of what's going to go down this Thursday!

Usually when an eclectic mix of ravers cross paths, they find themselves wired with different brainwaves and thinking patterns, disagreeing and interested in opposite genres whether it be dubstep, progressive house or trance. But when the conversation between the two parties leads to Electric Zoo, surprisingly, the two-different minded personalities can usually come together in agreement: Electric Zoo is an electronic music festival, designed for whatever type of sub genere of dance music you’d like to delve into.WebRep currentVote noRating noWeight
