Dan General, aka DJ Shubb, will be back in Ottawa for the first time in more than a year this weekend, presiding over the decks during a Saturday-night main-stage performance at the Summer Solstice Aboriginal Arts Festival. The festival and competition powwow run June 19-21 at Vincent Massey Park.

It will be DJ Shubb’s first Ottawa appearance since he left the groundbreaking electronic music group, A Tribe Called Red, a departure he is reluctant to discuss in detail.

“I did what I wanted to do with the group, music wise,” Shubb said in a phone interview from his hometown of Fort Erie, ON. “Artistically I think I wanted to move on, and just explore different areas, do things on my own terms.”

Wanting to spend time with his young family was also a factor in the decision to step away from Tribe after the group made it to the upper echelons of the Canadian music industry: They not only won the 2014 Juno Award for breakthrough group of the year, but also found themselves being considered for Canada’s Polaris Prize.
