Mohawk songstress Shawnee gets a complete sonic makeover by the one and only DJ Shub, in his blown out remix of “Canadian Cry”.
He may have parted ways with A Tribe Called Red, but that isn’t slowing DJ Shub down for a second.
Shub’s latest is a total reimagining of Shawnee‘s plaintive acoustic ballad “Canadian Cry”, which he takes from its country-tinged origins, chops up, and transforms into an electrifying club anthem.
Speaking of anthems, in a wink to the nation-state, Shub lifts and loops a repeated vocal sample of Shawnee singing “my home and native” while he builds the track into a huge drop for the chorus, amplifying the song to new dancefloor-rocking rhythmic heights.
Listen to both below to get a taste of the original and the electrifying Shub remix.
