April 21, 2012 Tim Gauthier Blog Tags: , ,

Life + Times; Jay-Z’s notable ‘lifestyle’ and music blog has continued to infiltrate the artists of Dim Mak, with it’s second chapter introducing Datsik, and the world as he see’s it.

“To true fans of turntablism and hip-hop heads alike, Troy Beetles, the Canadian DJ known as Datsik, is a staple on their iPods and Spotify playlists. With an air of new wave DJ skills while maintaining traditional DJ technique on the turntables, Datsik spins everything from modern dance music to hitting late ’80s hip-hop circa N.W.A. with a bang of dubstep bass drops.”
