DJ Shub has pioneered a growing genre of electronic music
– PowWowStep –
since his initial start with internationally-acclaimed group A Tribe Called Red.
Born Dan General, he is a Mohawk, turtle clan of the Six Nations of the Grand River located in Ontario, Canada.
Since the creation of PowWowStep, he has grown more aware of the Indigenous way of life through his music, merging his heritage with his craft.
As a solo artist, DJ Shub released his first EP “PowWowStep” in 2016 and has since played some of the biggest music festivals in North America. He’s also been featured in a number of national media outlets. His song “Indomitable” was notably handpicked by Sacha Baron Cohen as the theme music to his hit Showtime series, “Who Is America?”
DJ Shub was recently nominated for Contemporary Indigenous Artist of the Year at the 2022 JUNOs for his latest album “War Club” released in 2020. War Club, the album, blends traditional Indigenous drums with modern day electronic beats and hip hop sensibility. Each song is a master course in technical skill and DJ turntablism, bringing a message of protest and power. Filled with heavy hitters, the album intends to provoke thought and shed light on the many ways artists are fighting back in today’s political climate.
