Datsik
“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.

Put out completely independently on the group’s own Glass Air imprint (which will also handle Love Death Immortality), Drink The Sea would go on to sell over 80,000 copies and counting...
