Upon a successful first run of the Ninja Nation Tour in 2017, Datsik teamed up with his friends Space Jesus, Riot Ten, Carbin, Wooli and Swage to tour across the U.S., featuring the Shogun Stage. With cities like NYC, New Orleans, Las Vegas, Orlando and Portland all getting a bass-loaded taste of Datsik & CO., we were lucky enough to attend BOTH nights of the Los Angeles stop. Here’s five things we witnessed that proves Datsik and friends are not messing around.
CARBIN Kicking Off Both Nights
Just one day after releasing his EP The Formula, CARBIN set the mood with his electric sound. As the crowd poured in, the energy of the place grew exponentially. If we could give you one piece of advice it’d be to keep your eyes on this kid. With the ever-growing amount of artists fighting their way into the dubstep scene, CARBIN has already made a name for himself. Although Boss is my favorite song of his, I instantaneously fell in love with All Night. The trap beats with Armanni Reign on the mic proved to be the type of groovy I so long for.
Riot Ten Conducting an Orchestra
When most people think of dubstep, they don’t think of singing. But Riot Ten is here to prove otherwise. His song Rail Breaker is a 2018 headbanger’s anthem. There’s nothing more exciting than a sea of 3,000 people screaming out the lyrics.
Space Jesus Giving Life Advice
If you’ve ever seen Space Jesus, you know his set is riddled with sayings like, “Dr. Seuss is the best rapper, alive or dead,” “F*ck Donald Trump!”, and “I wrote this with my dad,”. But the best one yet would have to be this: You don’t always have to be head banging, you know you can slow down and dance. As Space Jesus dropped some low-tempo beats, the crowd moved side to side, slowly. It was a charm seeing him, two nights in a row, bringing some variety to the show. Also, he dj’ed with no shoes on both nights. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
