Datsik (real name: Troy Beetles) (born June 9, 1988 in Kelowna, British Columbia) is a dubstep DJ and music producer.

Datsik started producing dubstep after he heard his friend Excision play at the Shambhala Music Festival in 2008.[1] The name Datsik was inspired by Beetles' former Xbox Live gamertag.[2] He started his own record label called Firepower Records in early 2012.[3] He released his debut studio album titled, Vitamin D on April 10, 2012. He is known to work frequently with fellow Canadian producers Excision and Downlink.
