Troy Beetles, (born June 8, 1988) better known by his stage name Datsik, is a Canadian DJ and music producer. His first release was in the spring of 2009. He has since played at venues all over the world, including festivals such as Coachella, Ultra Music Festival, EDC Las Vegas, Stereosonic, Boonstock, Shambhala Music Festival, and Electric Zoo. In November 2019, Datsik broke his 18-month hiatus with a video uploaded to his Facebook page. In the video, he discussed plans to return to the music industry. He also mentioned having been staying in a live-in therapy facility. He claimed he had gotten sober, and apologized for the ways of this old lifestyle, and stated that “It is a lifestyle that I am no longer practicing… and one that I have worked hard to overcome.” Public response to the video was mixed, as the artist failed to make any mention of or address the numerous and serious sexual assault accusations against him. Comments on the video ranged from celebration to outrage. In August 2020, amidst the coronavirus pandemic, Datsik marked his return to music by posting 4 songs from his new album “Afterlife” on SoundCloud and YouTube. Here are all of Datsik songs ranked.
