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":

    Yes, H&M is expanding its partnership with soccer player David Beckham and creates a new wardrobe for men. Each piece of this year's spring collection is chosen by the sporting icon. Beckham started collaborating years ago with H&M for their men's underwear collection. The David Beckham Bodywear collection was a huge success (and a huge thirst trap for the ladies). It's only right that the partnership expands. From underwear then to modern essentials now, Beckham describes each...

    I think it's safe to say that Igloofest is the best thing to happen to Canada during winter season. I mean, what else would you want to do with yourself during this horrid cold season, lock yourself up and hibernate?  For those of you unaware of what Igloofest is, you should sorta guess by the name that it is an outdoor electronic music festival (emphasis on the word 'outdoor'). Set in the Old-Port of Montreal, Igloofest has been reuniting music fans from all facets of life to...

    Believe it or not, this video is NOT a joke. Darryl Snider, oups I mean DaddyDaDa wants to let you know how important it is to treat all women with respect. So he decided to shoot a video for this AWESOME song called... *DRUM ROLL* "Treat All Women With Respect". Honestly, the first 5 seconds of the video reminded me of a porno flick plot: cheezy and fake. AT LEAST, young rapper DaddyDada got some crazy bars: "1-2-3-4, no more women on the floor". I REALLY want you guys to pay attention to the...

    The mysterious, masked singer-songwriter Wolf Colony is amping up to release his debut album Unmasked on March 3rd. Wolf Colony delivers a new blend of electronic-pop, drawing influences from 80s synth-pop to indie rock, while slipping in subtle stylistic nuances inspired by various contemporary electronic artists.

    As soon as we laid eyes and ears on singer/songwriter Phoebe Ryan, we knew she was someone to keep on our radar. This Scandinavian pop artist has a great voice to boot. Her debut is definitely more than just ordinary. She uploaded her own rendition of two of our favourite timeless tracks and even put together a music video for it. We know, we know, EVERYONE has done a cover mash of R. Kelly’s “Ignition”... but no one added Miguel’s “Do You" to the mix yet. Which in effect, creates a truly...

    If you are still unfamiliar with Ryan Hemsworth, you're probably living under a rock at this point. The Halifax born journalist turned DJ/Producer has dropped a brand new video for his single "Too Long Here" featuring vocals from Alex G. This music video was directed by Alex Girav and features a young woman walking around town following herself(?) to oblivion(?). This is the second single from Ryan Hemsworth's Alone For The First Time album which was released towards the end of...

    Gearing up for his debut album release at the end of February, Toronto up and coming artist Marlon James drops a simple yet psychedelic video for his single "Away".  Check it out here:  Directed by Marco Baldonado, the video represents the lingering feelings of a past relationship gone sour, represented by whispy smoke projections of James himself. His role as a creative catalyst to some of Toronto's most prominent creatives (Tanika Charles, Birthday Boy, Junia-T) has solidified his...
