Datsik preps for "Firepower Reloaded" dates
Dubstep DJ Datsik has paired up with Rockstar Energy Drink for the "Firepower Reloaded" tour, which will venture across eastern North America this winter.
The Canadian DJ/producer will begin the sponsored road trip with a Jan. 9 performance in Ottawa, Ontario, followed by club and theater shows in 13 major markets. Various artists will provide opening support on the three-week trek, which concludes Jan. 26 in Nashville.
Tickets for the "Reloaded" trek are available now at the tour's website.
For many dates, Datsik will perform in a special DJ booth with 3D mapping technology, custom visuals and special effects, according to a press release. The audio experience will also feature an extra 50,000 watts thanks to PK Sound.
"I think dubstep has become so huge because it's a complete bastardization of electronic music," Datsik said at his website. "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."
Last January, Datsik founded his own Firepower Records and released his debut album, "Vitamin D," in April.
