The Datsik Vortex Lumen. Datsik’s performances feature this visually captivating and enormously popular Vortex Lumen Stage design by V Squared Labs. Per Datisk: “It’s really trippy. It looks like I’m floating in the middle of this concoction.” The images are projected both from in front and from behind, he adds, which makes the presentation “look seamless, really unlike anything I’ve ever done before. I basically wanted to make the trippiest possible thing I could, and this is the idea that came to mind.” (Billboard)


The Vortex was based off a sketch by Datsik himself, elaborated on by Vello Virkhaus, Peter Sistrom and fabricated by 41 sets. V Squared Labs’ team of animators designed and produced visuals combining themes of Space, Optical Art, Machines, Robots and Fire ultimately bringing the “Vortex” to life. The Vortex has premiered to sold out audiences and toured the US and Canada and yielded great audience and magazine reviews.


For Datsik’s 2013 Fall Tour, V Squared Labs expanded on the vortex with a full lighting package designed to enhance the centrality of the design. Arced truss mounted with DMX-controlled fixtures radiate from the vortex with tight beams, bright strobes and low-res pixel patterns.
