Calgary’s Beetopher (a.k.a. Christopher Toth) has unveiled his fourth single, “Night 5”.
In a new light for the artist, this single follows a classic club/hip-hop dance track with energetic vocal delivery, good one-liners, and above all a new bar set for the overall production quality Beetopher plans to deliver. The brand new single was fully Produced, Mixed, and Mastered by Beetopher from the makeshift studio he has in his home.
The single kickstarts a hopeful future for an EP to be released later this year, which will be fully crafted by Beetopher.
“I really want to make something special, maybe that’s to other people who listen to my music or maybe it’s just to me, but my goal is to finally craft a project I truly love and continue solidifying my vision as an artist and overall creative.”

Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
Hello everyone, my name is Christopher Toth or known under the artist name “Beetopher.” I’m a Cree-Canadian hip-hop/rap artist born and raised in the Calgary, Alberta area. More specifically, I make satirical/comedic type hip-hop music ranging from a love ballad for Anna Kendrick to a song heavily exaggerating and dramatizing my come up from a young age. “Beetopher” is a character I made up from my younger teen years, forged to represent the dark/blunt side of my humor. It’s a way to show myself without really showing myself, almost like any popular creator you see on the internet nowadays. I love what I do, I love bringing forward whatever wacky or obscure thoughts/creativity I may have. My style is unorthodox, some people hate it and some people love it, but I feel a sense of pride in my ability to showcase the crazy part of myself through a love and passion for music & entertainment in general. I hope everyone can find at least a piece from my work that can help heal, inspire or just laugh.
Tell us a bit about your most recent release.
My most recent song is a play on the popular game “Five Nights at Freddy’s.” A horror game that became popular during its first release around 2014. It’s something I only know at face value but nonetheless has affected my views in some way or another. The track follows an electric club/hip-hop instrumental, layered with silly lyrics and contagiously energetic performance. It’s fun, it’s bouncy and it’s another good step in my music career. What’s not to like?
When it comes to the global pandemic, how are you keeping yourself out in the public eye while not being able to perform?
Well, as a newer artist I haven’t quite gotten the chance to perform in front of a crowd yet. The beginning stages of my career are still right beside me, so I feel it’s important I represent my brand firstly through a strong social media presence. Starting new Instagram, Facebook, Twitter & social media pages I hope to bring in new fans from all across the world to spread the word.
Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so if you were able to work with ONE fellow Canadian artist, alive or dead, who would you choose?
In all honesty, I’d be happy to work with just about any local talent. I love my craft, it’s fun and it keeps my mind occupied. As long as I can find someone who cares about their music just as much as I care about mine, then I am more than happy to have a conversation with them. Drake would be a pretty cool collaboration though, not gonna lie.
What’s your goal for 2022?
Oh man, I really have a lot of things I want to do in 2022 and most of them aren’t even music-related, but as an artist, I just want to make a name for myself. I want to release singles and full-length projects to finally show the world my true potential as Beetopher, whatever that true potential is (I’m not even sure). I’ve always been really hard on myself when it comes to my work, harder than anyone else could ever be on me. I’ve always just wanted to create a full project I’m truly proud of. Something I can wear on my sleeve without a second thought. I want to be more confident as a person and as an artist and I think that I can, in creating new and innovative musical projects.
I’m Jenna, and I am the founder and editor of Canadian Beats. I have had a strong love for Canadian music, which started many years ago. I have a passion for promoting these talented Canadian bands and artists, and that’s how Canadian Beats came to be. I am so proud of what it has become over the last few years, with many talented music lovers and writers coming together to spread the word of Canada’s music.
