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":

     After a decade’s hiatus, Canadian rockers HEADSTONES released Love + Fury in 2013 to the delight of audiences in search of the band’s distinctive blend of high-octane rock ‘n’ roll. The band very much in form follows with One In The Chamber Music, a collection of a dozen fan-requested new arrangements of catalogue favourites as well as two brand-new titles, Laugh Lines and first single Colourless, which is available as an instant gratification for...

    Of course he's no Beyoncé when it comes to dropping a new album out of nowhere, but Drake does like his share of surprises with some new songs here and there. This past Sunday, a new track from the Toronto rapper began floating around the internet titled, "How About Now".   A female voice recording starts off the track (a bit of Nicki Minaj featuring Toronto slang perhaps?), followed by the instrumental. The song samples Jodeci's, "My Heart Belongs To You". Drake strictly raps on this one...

    Alternative R&B artist FKA Twigs has just released a collaboration with Google Glass titled #throughglass. The Twigs directed video features a reworked version of LP1 album cut "Video Girl" and probably the most intense routine she's done in a music video since... this. The video stands as a visual commentary on modern identity and how quickly it can be stolen, by way of a google search, ironically. It's also what you might imagine a Darren Aronofsky directed "Single Ladies" would have...

    Last Sunday was the closing day of Festival du Nouveau Cinema and you bet your ass I was going to watch a movie. Since Halloween is just around the corner and I’ve been binging on True Blood (shoutouts to Kelly’s hard drive) I decided to try my luck on the indie flick A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night labelled as the 1st "Iranian Vampire Western" on their facebook page. Filmmaker Ana Lily Amirpour took viewers on a captivating and enigmatic ride with her black & white movie about a...

    PartyNextDoor's first headlining and completely sold-out tour kicked off Sunday at Le Belmont in Montreal. I was personally most excited to see "Persian Rugs" and "Recognize" live (duh), and as a huge fan of Drake, I was excited to catch a pretty central figure on his OVO Sound label. Doors to the show were early and when I arrived, Ryan Playground had already been keeping people happy for awhile with a very nice mix of rap beats and spacey RnB. Perhaps because it was a Sunday, the crowd...

    Despite my record for being a fangirl I have never once obsessed the way I did the evening of October 20th. While blissfully scrolling through my Facebook feed I saw a link for a Taylor Swift article talking about her new track that was to be released the next day titled (as I was just finding out), "Welcome to New York". As I followed the link through I was greeted to another link — a leak of the song. Then, as if on cue Swifty announced on Instagram that "Welcome to New York" would be...
