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":

    We truly found a gem when accidentally falling on a music video by Yuko Yuko recently. This artist is completely DIY and homegrown on the internet.From the indie dream pop style of music, to the analog videos, his whole persona screams authentic late 80s borderline 90s nostalgia. He has a very real vibe to his image, and we dig it. He's been on our radar ever since we posted about him recently, and to no surprise, there's more. Today is the official date of release for his latest EP...

    Looking at today's state of rap and r&b is almost like looking at pictures of distant family from my country, I'm Jamaican by the way. For some reason dreadlocks seems to be the new trend among a lot of artists, well because of how awesome they are of course. Similar to 80's hair metal bands this trend seems to be rap and r&b's 2014 version since so many artists have switched their hairstyle or have had it for a good chunk of their career which we kind of will always refer to them as....

    You know that feeling you get when you land on a really good music discovery? Everyone that knows me know that I am musically varied. I grew up in the Myspace days when emo/punk was a thing and Warped Tour was the Osheaga of our today. Indie became a genre and rock became too soft, hip-hop took over and for a the last couple of years, rock music has tried to make its comeback and failed, multiple times.  Their are only a handful of bands that can achieve mass-appeal, and CHILDCARE is...

    This colorful video from Little Boots is equal parts fun and creepy. Little Boots collaborated with director Ish Sahotay to create the conveyor belt style video featuring lots of models with dead eyes and some other weird and shocking images. Some of these things include cutting off a finger, feet in a hamburger, jumping in jello and even this one chick getting down on a rack of ribs like its her last meal: The video is meant to portray gluttony in a way. More success, more...

    Remember that time the glitter-spewing pop star Ke$ha was just dorky teen playing matchmaker? When saying "that's hot" was actually hot?

    It's safe to say that everyone seems to love LA's most enigmatic new act, OOFJ. After creating music for both Lars Von Trier's masterpiece 'Melancholia' and top IDFF winning documentary 'Ai Wei Wei - The Fake Case', the band's musical credibility was solidified a long time ago. However, with news that the duo's sophomore album Acute Feast is due in March of next year, OOFJ seems to have come out of nowhere over the past few weeks as forerunners for a Ones to Watch spot in 2015. Featuring both...
