J Devil Talks With Billboard On His “EDM” Transition & Signing To Dim Mak…

710 150 Tim Gauthier

Davis is currently on tour under his J Devil moniker, playing own headlining dates as well as five stops with the touring Identity Festival. J Devil will also be the support act for the Marilyn Manson-Rob Zombie Twins of Evil tour beginning Sept. 29. Meanwhile, Davis has prepared a J Devil EP for release (date pending) on Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak label, as well as another EP by Killbot, a “supergroup” with (Nick) Sluggo and Tyler Blue.

“I started doing (electronic music) for fun. I didn’t now what was gonna happen with it,” Davis tells Billboard.com. “Making electronic music and learning to produce and learning my new instrument — laptop, I call it — has been an amazing thing. I’m learning and I’m having fun playing my own tunes. I’ve really had to re-train myself. It’s totally different than writing rock songs.” And while he acknowledges that “because I’m Jonathan from Korn, it’s a celebrity thing” when he gets behind the turntables, he’s enjoying great acceptance from his full-time peers in the EDM world — including Skrillex, Datsik, Downlink and others he invited to be part of Korn’s 2011 album, “The Path of Totality.”

RollingStone.com Debuts Datsik & Infected Mushroom’s “Evilution” feat. Jonathan Davis!

Tim Gauthier

As featured on RollingStone.com, Datsik and & Infected Mushroom’s “unsettling” new video has made its official world-premiere…

Dubstep DJ Datsik is releasing his debut full length album Vitamin D on April 10th. The album’s latest single is the twitchy “Evilution,” which incorporates three different musical styles thanks to its guests Jonathan Davis and Infected Mushroom.
“Datsik and Infected Mushroom are both amazing and innovative artists that I have huge respect for, and I love working with them. This video was a ton of fun to make and it came out great in a very fucked up way,” Jonathan Davis explains of the bright yet unsettling piñata-filled video. “This was a meeting of three totally different styles, which is what makes it so fun.”

Datsik & Infected Mushroom – Evilution ft. Jonathan Davis

“I think dubstep has become so huge because it’s a complete bastardization of electronic music,” exclaims rapidly emerging young producer and artist DATSIK. “There’s a little bit of everything thrown in the mix and dirtied up. There are pieces of hip-hop, the bass from electronic dance tracks and the roots of U.K. garage and drum & bass…Dubstep is totally the punk rock of electronic music.”

His latest and second single off “Vitamin D” (LP, coming soon) “Evilution” was built from another Jonathan Davis collaboration, this time with Israeli psy-trance band Infected Mushroom. Collaborating after a chance meeting backstage at New York’s massive Electric Zoo festival last summer, the pair brought their wildly disparate sounds together as one. “Blending dubstep with psy-trance and Jonathan Davis sounds kind of insane,” DATSIK admits, “but the track came out great and I’m stoked on it.”

“Lately, I’m focusing on creating memorable songs, so it’s always real music and not just a collection of cool beats,” DATSIK says finally. “Of course, it’s gotta be funky so people can dance to it. More than anything, I want people to be able to hum my songs, robot noises and all.”
