Ottawa-based A Tribe Called Red consists of indigenous artists Deejay Frame, DJ NDN, DJ Shub, and the video director Bear witness. Together they're winning praise from people in the know for their crazy Electric Pow Wow tracks, which combine powwow beats and chants with fuzzy basslines and hooky loops. DJ/Producer posted ATCR tracks on his blog at MadDecent with the comment "how badd azz is this!?!?", and MTV's Iggy blog remarked that "it’s as right on and brilliant as a fashion shoot with emaciated European models in war bonnets is ignorant and lazy."
