A Tribe Called Red
Bursting forth from Canada's capital, native Producer/DJ crew A Tribe Called Red is producing a truly unique sound that's impacting the global electronic scene and urban club culture. Since 2010 the group – currently made up DJ NDN, Bear Witness and 2oolman – has been mixing traditional pow wow vocals and drumming with cutting-edge electronic music. Their self-titled album, released in March 2012, was long-listed for Canada's prestigious Polaris Music Prize and included in the Washington Post's top 10 albums of the year.

In a sense, ATCR's music is the soundtrack to a contemporary evolution of the pow wow: their Electric Pow Wow events in Ottawa showcase native talent and aboriginal culture, alongside an open, wild party. Within a couple of years they've become the face of an urban Native youth renaissance, championing their heritage and speaking out on aboriginal issues, while being on top of popular music, fashion and art. Bear Witness doubles as the crew's visual artist and creates stunning, political and sometimes humorous videos that incorporate film and pop culture references to native people and reclaim the aboriginal image. On May 7th, A Tribe Called Red released their second full-length album, Nation II Nation in Canada and in the USA on Tribal Spirit Music. The album was nominated on the shortlist of the Polaris Music Prize as one of the 10 best Canadian album of the year and 4 APCMAs (Aboriginal Peoples Choice Music Award) for best group, best producer, best album and best cover art. ATCR have also collaborated and produced one of the last known Das Racist song called Indians From All Directions as well as the song A Tribe Called Red on Angel Haze's album Dirty Gold.

"The wolf is a symbol in my culture and also my favourite animal", explains the 25 year old regarding the nature of his name. This way, Johnny includes his Native American background in his music. The "Saga" represents a new chapter in the personal journey of this young artist. "The Theme of growing up is a big one in my songs, about grabbing opportunity and moments as they come by". After playing lead guitar in an indie rock band, Johnny started creating electronic music, bridging the gap between the genres.
