The latter duo have been making waves in the city with their unique imagery, immersive songwriting & engaging sonics. This approach has garnered them 100s of thousands of plays across multiple platforms culminating in their debut project "Anywhere but Earth". Be sure listen to their amazing introductory album in full below:  


Raw Rhythm represents a new refreshing presence within the growing Ottawa music scene. He made his initial splash with his debut single "Burn Out" which got the attention of many people including ourselves. His sound is one centered on  atmospheric production & tackling risqué subject matter. Watch the visuals for his debut single below: 

The triumvirate sat down with me and had a really dope discussion about not only their artistry, but their upbringing as people and overall views on creativity. We discuss the impact of artists like Linkin Park & Omarion had in their musical upbringing. The enigmatic duo of Ja¥ & District reveal how music had always played a role in their household via communal karaoke, where as Raw's origins stem from his background in dance.  From there we touch on their approaches to songwriting and the importance of vulnerability in establishing a genuine connection with the listeners.
