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":

    Ok so I’m just going to go ahead and say it. This video is EVERYTHING. The internet has been in a recent state of uproarious laughter over the video that surfaced on Cut Video’s Youtube account the other day. Three innocent and completely willing grandmothers decided to be the guinea pigs of a small social experiment and got high for the first time (was I the only one who suspected Deirdre has totally been down with the ganja before?) in their many decades lived on god’s green Earth....

    Smallpools, Magic Man, and Panama Wedding. Now that's a lineup ladies and gentlemen! The three acts took the stage at The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles, and proved that indie pop is sure to get you dancing. Though the venue didn’t sell out, I’m sure it would have if The 1975 wasn’t playing a sold out show that same night only a block away. But who cares because it was such a fun night and I’m still recovering from all the dancing… Panama Wedding kicked off the night with a lot of energy. Though...

    “Left or right?” This age old question that was commonly used to ask for directions is now an inquiry on whether the digitally rendered image of some random chick on your screen is hot enough for you to be vaguely interested. What the hell am I talking about? Log off your Tinder session and stop pretending you don’t know what Tinder is. Thank you; let’s proceed. It used to be that there were rules about these things. Fathers were asked permission, curfews were given, chaperons...

    Our favourite instant-messaging app has launched a brand new feature this past Monday called Snapcash in collaboration with another company called Square.
