“Played it for my high school class and they all started to move and throw their hands in the air. They said that’s pretty cool Mr. Wood! Judging by their action, I’d say it’s pretty darn electric.” – Steve Wood, founder and lead singer of Northern Cree, on DJ Shub’s lead single entitled “Indomitable ft. Northern Cree”

“Shub is just a DJ that you can’t really out scratch… there’s really very few DJs out there who can out cut Shub.” – Vekked , 2015 DMC World Champion, on DJ Shub’s 2012 DJ battle performance for King of the Dot

“The ceremonies also included a performance by indigenous dancers representing the four ancestral Nations of the Greater Golden Horseshoe region – the host of the Games – welcoming the Eagle, in the form of a dancer, the messenger of the Games. To the pounding electro beats of DJ Shub, they joined a group of 183 dancers from everywhere from Brazil to Ukraine who twirled, thrust and leapt across the stage.” – Dakshana Bascaramurty, The Globe and Mail, note about DJ Shub’s participation in the Pan Am Games opening ceremony.
