Troy Beetles, better known by his stage name Datsik, is a Canadian music producer and DJ.

Beetles cites a wide range of musical inspirations, including Wu-Tang Clan members RZA and Method Man. He has described his sound as "dark and robotic", while trying to remain "funky and gangster" and "dirty."
