San Diego, alongside a few members of our team, were blessed with the presence of The Almighty Datsik this Sunday night.  Leading up to this show, we all knew one thing, which was massive amounts of bass was about to rattle throughout all of the Gaslamp District in downtown SD.  Upon entry into the Bassmnt, in the heart of the Gaslamp District, Datsik was a mere 15 minutes away from taking over the decks.  It was almost like time was ticking slower than humanly possible as we awaited his presence.

Without a moment of hesitation, Datsik was up on stage dropping an insanely heavy song that I, unfortunately, was not able to ID. It was right then the club seemed to turn into a sardine can full of fans looking to rage the night away.  Following his opener we heard “Burst” by 12th Planet creeping its way to the speakers – this absolutely set the crowd in motion. As he progressed on with this collection of dubstep, moombahton and straight bass music the crowd was not showing an ounce of exhaustion.  However, one thing was certain and that was the increased temperature in the club. Have no fear, Datsik is here to save the day as he graced the crowd with ice cold water!  The set continued and the perfection that was being released through the speakers was unforgettable. From Bro Safari’s “Scumbag” to Dr. Dre’s “Next Episode” to Destroid’s Anhilate (Datsik Remix), this monster behind the decks was unstoppable!

After the successful water works, Datsik decided hydration was essential and thus made the ultimate decision to shower us in champagne. Following his champagne stunt the music cut off.  Was it the champagne? Who knows. Was it Datsik’s fault? Who cares! Within a mere 30 seconds the music was back and heavier than ever before!

I believe it is safe to say Datsik loves San Diego. Maybe it was the five separate times he grabbed the mic to say so.  As for the performance, the track list went on and was nothing short of amazing. The highlights of the last hour consisted of (if I have to pick a few) Datsik & Terravita’s “Losing Control,” an epic remix of Migos and Carnage’s “Bricks” and of course, a personal favorite, Zeds Dead’s “Oh No. From endless CO2 cannons to insane LED lights, Datsik was clearly set up for a successful show and it would be a sin to say otherwise.

All that is left to say is THANK YOU to the mastermind of dubstep and the Godfather of Firepower Records.  Be sure to check out ALL of his latest tracks and collaborations and if you are lucky enough to catch him at a city near you, BUY TICKETS HERE!!!
