The Perfect Rendezvous
we caught up with rising artist A-Will from Toronto and got a glimpse into the world he is creating for himself. Being his own producer & engineer, mixing & mastering his own songs, writing his own songs and distributing himself, A-Will is on the road to success!
Born and Raised in East York
a small neighbourhood in Toronto, A-Will started making music in 2013, in a totally different style prior to his current sound. After a heartbreak, A-Will took the time and invested into his sound, finding it much easier to say what needed to be said, as the emotions fit the current sound he was going for. With the harsh surroundings of the Toronto area, being an artist thats different from the typical sound you hear in the streets can be quite a challenge, but we at Capital Heat think A-Will has the talent to succeed in this industry!
Will Ryte ''I Started as a Kid''
going thru a tough past, including a year of jail time, music was one of the only things keeping Will Ryte focused on his path. Attending Metal Works College to learn more about music and graduating was one of the many steps that help push him forward. Meeting with A-Will in early 2020 is just the beginning to my career, as we have a few songs out and we plan on many more releases together and seperately
Listening to this song, from our point of view, is a complete trip from the very first note to the end! Giving off the vibes of such artists as Iann Dior, Machine Gun Kelly and Dro KenjiIf, when heard on good speakers or over the ear headphones you can easily tell that A-Will pays extreme attention to detail in the goal of gripping the listener til the song is over. Rendezvous, featuring Will Ryte (mentioned above) is just 1 of the many songs these 2 artists have together, on top of their own individual growing catalogues, expect big things from these 2 young canadians. Be sure to catch their upcoming singles, including 'Rendezvous' on Capital Heat Spotify/Apple Music as of the release tonight at Midnight!
Love Songs with Arty Warhol
making any generic, typical rap song, is not an impressive feat in 2021, but creating a song that can grip a listener from start to finish, with a great true story, is something Arty Warhol is no stranger to.
From 'Lovers In A Strange Time' to 'Now'
Arty Warhol's debut album was by far the most impressive album I have ever heard from an artist in the Capital! Recently being featured on Medium for reaching 300,000 on his hit single 'Now' there isn't much other than the Canadian barrier stopping this artist from exploding onto the scene.
What Can We Expect From Arty Warhol Going Forward?
Recently landing somewhat of ''the job he's always wanted'' expect Arty to have the ways to fully invest in his career very shortly, Arty tells us he will be working on a lot of new music soon and to not sleep on him cause it will be worth the wait.
Punjabi/Canadian Artist SimbX
Singer, Songwriter, Rapper and Engineer from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, at only 17 years old, fell in love with creating music early on in his life. ''I started music in grade 9 in the music room at school with a couple of my friends freestyling over Beats which is a what made me want to keep doing music'' SimbX tells us during our interview.
How 'Swing' Featuring Zambrana was made
Destined to be a hit record, the mixture of old school hip hop and Cuban flavour by Zambrana paired with a catchy R&B type of hook on a dancehall beat made the song unique in an interesting way. Something we haven't heard yet from a song from the Capital.
SimbX Mindset While Creating 'Swing'
Looking to make a club banger, Something that makes you want to dance as soon as the beat starts. The beauty of this song in comparison to other artists music is the diversity of the song itself, not your “typical Ottawa track” targeted to only a certain demographic, 'Swing' is something for everyone to enjoy. Zambrana said in a interview with StayOnBeat that people that don’t even like hip hop love this song, and we highly agree here at Capital Heat Canada.
Would you like to mention anything about anyone that worked with you on this?
''Shoutout to Zambrana from Florida for hopping on the song and giving the song that extra flavour. He killed his verse. Shoutout to the StayOnBeat podcast from Florida for inviting me on for an interview to promote the record and for keeping it playing till this day.' And finally Shoutout to everyone who streamed, who shared, who engaged swing in any way!'

Rising Artist OJ Montana
from the west side of Ottawa, Ritchie street. Grew up around struggle, gang activity and violence, overcoming his struggles through basketball. Finding difficulty escaping after high school when basketball was over, OJ Montana found comfort in describing the things going on around him thru making music, ''Knowing I had a future to lose stopped me from engaging in a lot of nonsense'', OJ mentioned to us.
How 'Not Easy' Was Created
With pain in his heart after suffering the loss of a friend who was a rapper & mentor to OJ Montana. Consecutively losing his grandfather, issues with his ex & more, OJ felt it was time to describe everything in a song.
''It’s different because it’s authentic from the sound to the lyrics'', OJ shows us a very natural side of his artistry, not really being comparable to any other artist & having his own sound. OJ Montana wants us all to know he means everything he says & does! Interestingly enough OJ Montana follows a similar code to other Ottawa local rapper Jay Honest by making great music without the need to endorse Drugs, Violence & Gang life to the generations to come. ''I found out that being yourself is really all you need, this work really represents dimensions of who I am.''

Ottawa's Lebanese Rising Artist 2M,
Age 18, grew up broke and hustling legally to make it out the city. 2M has a mission, ''feed my team''. His code as a man is loyalty, and I quote, ''Ive seen some people I called my brothers stab me in the back, so now I keep my circle tighter than ever and I’ll make sure we all make it out to the hills.''
His latest single “Harden”
has a tough NYC drill vibe heavily inspired by legendary artist Pop Smoke.
Although the beat is meant for a hard and aggressive style, 2M shows diversity by adding melodies, turning the song into a hype up/party song.
RIP POP SMOKE
How 'Harden' was created
Making slow paced hip hop songs mixed with a desire to change it up & try a new style, ended up working out for 2M as he started writing and decided to base the song off an NBA basketball star James Harden. ''He was one of my favourite players I watched growing up so I thought I owed him a song with his name on it''. While including some messages to the haters like, “I know they tried to get me set up, can't take me out now you fed up” is a line expressing that many people in the city see his drive for success and instantly hate on him, as is quite common in Ottawa's music culture. Enjoy 'Harden' By 2M on his official Youtube Channel below!
