Ain't No Love hype up EP release with bumpin' music video

Toronto/Montreal's renegade pop innovators Ain't No Love have released a music video for the song "Champion Babylon", a high-energy, bass dropping tune that, as the video perfectly captures, gets everyone on their feet and jamming. The quartet, MCs Roland "1990" Broere and Elias "Beanz" McBean, Vocalist Saidah Conrad, and Producer Liam Clarke, also have an EP called Tears of Joy coming up and set for release on February 14th . Take note, it's gonna be a big one.

The party that is the "Champion Babylon" video was directed by Max Sherman at a sold out Ain't No Love show at Le Belmont in Montreal. If you've ever been to a show by these guys you must've noticed the energy created between the crowd and the performers, and this video really captures that great aspect to this versatile band. With the beautiful Saidah, the electrifying Rolly, swervin' Eli and neck-numbing Liam, it's clear Ain't No Love pack a punch on stage as well as your speakers.

We're big fans of Ain't No Love here at IX. The unique mesh of different sounds create consistently unique beats that are given that authentic feel by the Mcs and the vocalist. Youthful and energetic, Ain't No Love hail from Toronto & Montreal, Canada. In most cases these two cities are rivals, but for these guys it's all in the collaboration and that's why they claim to be unlike anything else. The music is innovative hip-hop, electronica/pop that's freshly inspired by new sounds, beats and each other. "Champion Babylon "is the first video from the second EP from the welcomed Tdot based, MTL inspired outfit. Although only formed less than two years, the quartet is being noticed by fans, tastemakers and the music industry through performances at SXSW, NXNE, Halifax Pop Explosion, Pop Montreal, M for Montreal and more.

Some say they have cultivated a sound that has altered the Hip-Hop and Electro/Dubstep scene in Toronto and Montreal. Their live show is always memorable, critically acclaimed and they have shared the stage with the likes of Iggy Azalea, Rockie Fresh, Steve Aoki, Calvin Harris and Redman. Pretty impressive.

Big things are coming up for Ain't No Love. More music videos from their upcoming EP starting with "Gone Already" in february. Get your hands on their EP "Tears of Joy" on February 14th; catch them either in Toronto or Montreal at the Black Box Theatre (feb. 17) or Le Belmont (feb. 23) respectively; and if you're down in the States they'll be hitting the SXSW festival in Austin as well as Dukes Bohemian Groove Bar in Buffalo on february 13th and the Santos Party House in NYC on the 15th. Check out the Montreal EP release "Tears of Joy" @ Le Belmont on Facebook over here.

And here it is; Ain't No Love's "Champion Babylon":

    Atelier Wonder stole the show yesterday, opening day 3 of Toronto's fashion week with a Blade Runner-inspired line that had everyone pointing and gasping uncontrollably. Let's be real, Fashion Week is not without it's let downs. When you sit down at a show and all that's sent down the runway is black, boring shapes seen years before, it's really hard not to be bummed. The new collection, entitled Replicant, brought in the colour and textures that we were all waiting for.  We wore Atelier...

    Another precious hope of eating delicious burritos has been stolen away from Montrealers.  After a Craigslist post surfaced in the Montreal section of the popular classified, stating that the popular Mexican Grill restaurant CHIPOTLE was looking to hire new staffers for the various locations [in Montreal], new broke out like surefire on everyone's timelines.  Should we mention that the post was mostly written in CAPS lock? lol.  The way the post was written seemed too good to...

    K.I.D stands for Kids In Despair. This garage-pop duo consists of Kara and Bobby. All we know is that they have worked together at a convenience store as a waitress and clerk, and somehow, found themselves through music for a good reason. These two hail from the suburbs of Toronto, and they make gritty music filled with coming-of-age angst style lyrics that are down-right relatable. You won't want to skip through any of their songs, you might even replay some over and over again, just because...

    Friday March 20th at Sala Rossa did not disappoint me one bit. I was very excited to head to the venue for what would be the first edition of Montreal’s Funk Soul Festival, and holy shit was it a turnt up affair. Opening the night was funk, jazz, hip hop and groove fusion band The Liquor Store and they definitely knew how to set the mood for the rest of the evening. The 6 piece band was an energetic and eclectic mix of sounds, and even had guest performers come up on a few of their songs. Up...
