New bass hip-hop producer DATSIK returns to the road next year on the “Ninja Nation 2017 Tour” in support of his new EP, SENSEI on Firepower Records. Alongside the music comes the announcement of new stops on the winter tour.
Kicking off Friday, January 13 at the Royal Oak Theatre in Detroit, the North American tour continues east featuring two consecutive plays at Chicago’s Concord Music Hall and a performance at New York’s PlayStation Theater before moving west. New stops include Cincinnati, Aspen, Dallas, Eugene, San Louis Obispo, Fresno, Los Angeles (to headline the legendary Hollywood Palladium), Boise, Portland, Spokane and Billings. The tour will then extend into Canada with plays confirmed in Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver. Joining DATSIK will be Crizzly and Virtual Riot with special guests to be added on select dates. The complete itinerary follows below.
Themed after his obsession with ninja culture previously marked by his 2015 ‘Ninja Nation Tour,’ DATSIK—armed with shaolin bass from the infamous PK–Sound–brings with him a new high-tech production to the 2017 edition called “The Shogun.” “The Shogun stage is the next chapter and is an amalgamation of my wildest vision to date,” says DATSIK. “After touring with the Vortex, I’ve wanted to create something unique that will stand out from the rest, and embody what it is to be a rave ninja. We’ve got a ton of dope surprises waiting for you with this one, so get ready to have some fun! Can’t wait to see you guys on the Ninja Nation 2017 tour!” he adds.
Cuts from DATSIK’s seven-track Sensei EP will be a focal point of the Ninja Nation trek.The EP itself is the result of a full immersion into the serious study of bass bad-assery fromits first single “Just Sayain,” a bass-fueled single sure to infiltrate the dance floor to “Redemption,” his collab with fellow hometown Kelonean Excision.
