yo, debut single by a tribe called red, we love to see them grow and spread the sounds of the first nation people of north america. Superb electronic production elevates the voices of the Northern Cree singers into the extraplentary powow! This track gives me chills, and I can only imagine what will happen when it drops on the floors! One guess, a bunch of warriors will take storm and conquer the club while trying to win the most beautiful woman? I seriously give this track 10/10 in the genre of world bass remixes.
Let’s hope for a full album from the tribe and soon! This is music resonates with deep levels of the soul, unleash it to the world!

Article on ATCR by Cluster Mag:
Last month, Guillaume Decouflet made his way to the Electric Pow Wow in Ottawa and sat down with A Tribe Called Red to talk party music, urban indigineity, and upending racist stereotypes through multimedia artwork. Cluster Mag is proud to host Decouflet’s account of the experience; a short film-documentary assembled from his interview, a little bit of party footage, and the audio-video work of Bear Witness, one of ATCR’s three members. Decouflet’s native language is French, so to reach out to the States, Canada, and beyond, we thought we’d include a French original, and our own English translation. Enjoy.
