Considered to be the Godfather of PowWowStep, DJ Shub has undoubtedly pioneered a growing genre of electronic music. Born Dan General, he is a Mohawk, turtle clan of the Six Nations of the Grand River located in Ontario, Canada.
DJ Shub now brings a dynamic live show of his critically acclaimed, chart topping electronic Indigenous “War Club Live”. The show is a celebration of Indigenous music and culture and Indigenous dancers in full regalia. War Club blends traditional Indigenous drums with modern day electronic beats and hip hop sensibility.
DJ Shub won the 2022 JUNO award for Contemporary Indigenous Artist of the Year, and previously won Breakthrough Group of the Year in 2014 (with A Tribe Called Red). He was also an Indigenous Music Award nominee at the 2018 Juno Awards for his PowWowStep EP, won a Much Music Video Award for Best EDM/Dance Video in 2017 and was shortlisted for the esteemed Polaris Music Prize Award in 2013.
Most notably, the infamous UK actor, comedian and producer Sacha Baron Cohen hand-picked the song “Indomitable” as the theme music to his Showtime series, “Who Is America?” The show was critically-acclaimed, landing 3 Emmy Award Nominations, 2 Directors Guild of America Award nominations and a Golden Globe Award nomination.
