A Tribe Called Red is an alternative group hailing from Ottawa, Ontario. The Juno Award winning group is formed by DJ NDN, Bear Witness and 2oolman. Their latest release comes in the form of an EP entitled “Suplex.” Released on May 18, 2015 via Radicalized Records, the album contains four songs including the single “Suplex” featuring Northern Voice.
Upon listening to the EP, the uniqueness of A Tribe Called Red’s sound is immediately evident. The group mixes traditional Pow Wow music with EDM. Overall, Suplex is a solid release. It satisfies present fans and is a good introduction to A Tribe Called Red for those who are yet. It is difficult to choose one or two songs that stand out the most. Each (“Suplex” featuring Northern Voice, “The Peoples Champ” featuring Hellnback, “Bodyslam,” and “Bodyslam (Smalltown DJs remix)” are addicting tracks.
I would definitely recommend listening to the first single “Suplex” featuring Northern Voice to see if enjoy the sound. If so, pick up a copy of “Suplex” by A Tribe Called Red on iTunes.

Hi Everyone! My name is Remington Fioraso. I am a graduate of the University of the Fraser Valley’s Bachelor of Arts program in Sociology, Anthropology, and Media and Communication Studies. Within my program, I focused on social media, learning about contemporary and classical sociological theory (Including Marx, Foucault, Bourdieu, and Durkheim), and communicating effectively in various modes and for different audiences (including oral communication, business communication, academic writing, entertainment media, and presentations utilizing visual media). Within my program, the question arose for many courses, “What is the relevance in the real world?” Stepping (temporarily) away from being in university, I gained an interest in Latin American development, social movements, and business. Sooner than later, I will be applying for post-grad programs to dive further into LA development and social movements to gain a theory-background in addition to a personal perspective onto the topics. In my free time, I love to travel, consume media, eat, listen to music, and write. Listening to music and writing led to my interest in working with Canadian Beats! I have been a part of the team since April 2014. A few of my personal highlights of interviews include ones with some of my favourite artists – Sumo Cyco, Madeline Merlo, and High Valley.
