DJ Shub (Mohawk), formerly of A Tribe Called Red, releases a new song featured in recent episode of VICELAND’s Dead Set on Life (the “Pow Wow Wow” episode).
Check out DJ Shub Old School is for Lovers Ft. Morningstar River
DJ Shub about his inspiration for the song.
“When Matty asked me for music for his show I wanted to make a song that had musicality in it. I asked myself what would Val Kilmer want hear in his headphones right before he shot a scene in Thunder Heart. What would Kevin Costner want to listen to before he had to prance around like a Buffalo in front of Graham Greene in Dances With Wolves. I wanted to make a song that makes your soul travel to unexpected places…and at the same time…Shake your eagle feather. “Old school is For Lovers” is about a time when we didn’t need to worry about anything but love for each other, the people around us and for Mother Earth. A more simpler time we all can relate to.” – DJ Shub
