Let’s just say, it was a freaking awesome dance party just like Steve and Datsik warned me in their pre-interviews. The DEADMEAT Tour is definitely one show not to miss this year. Although biased as I am a huge fan of both artists, I’d say the audience agrees with me when I say that was one of the best shows I’ve been to. It was full of intense fun and immense energy at all points of the show, everything a concert should be. Playing to a sold-out crowd, both headliners gave body-lifting performances to celebrate Steve’s ‘Wonderland’ album and Datsik’s signage to DIM MAK Records.
At around 9:30 p.m., Datsik hit the stage. After the openers the crowd was so amped up and ready that I couldn’t even make it to the photo pit without being thrown around a couple of times. Datsik, known for his heavy bass and hardcore dubstep, played a surprising set of a variety of sounds. He’s moving more into the hip-hop scene, straying more from dubstep with ease. It’s obvious that Datsik is extremely talented and able to incorporate a myriad of different sounds to make his set flow and manage to also stay original. Working on his debut album coming out soon, this tour is just a preview to what Datsik can really do with the tempos and beats that are his realm of musical creation.
Steve Aoki and Datsik truly gave us a night we’d never forget; I promise you I won’t. With another month left in the tour, I suggest you go buy your tickets now. The DEADMEAT Tour is an experience I wish upon everyone; a party that you cannot miss. Yeah, I might have left without being able to hear for the next few hours, but it was so worth it.
