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":

    Halloween, aka Slut Christmas or Slut Hannukah if you're of the Jewish faith (don't worry, babies- I got you too, and it's perfect because the pronuciation allows you to feel like you're spitting in the face of all dem hoes) L'Chaim! Halloween, where every girl with low self-esteem attempts to out-slut each other for a chance to win the ultimate prize of ''still having absolutely 0% of a personality''.

    Call me a holiday romantic, but when I first saw the music video for Maroon 5's new single "Animal" I just figured they were celebrating Halloween early. The general public, however, did not seem to feel the same. In fact, many viewers got all bent out of shape with some arguing that the video promotes stalking. But, I think that's a little over dramatic. Sure the video features Adam Levine as a devilishly creepy stalker and feels very reminiscent of American Psycho what with the blood and all...

    Hailing from the very #outchea suburb known as Mississauga, Ontario, Junia-T has been a mainstay in the pre-Drake Toronto hip-hop scene as a rapper and producer. Sonically, this mad scientist uses his wits to carve a lane that's more of a riff on Toronto's past rather than conforming to the turnt-up anthems of his contemporaries. Having recently collaborated with artists across the pond like Little Simz, Junia-T is becoming an international name while still staying close to his roots by working...

    Unknown Philadelphia producer Rough Year took to his soundcloud yesterday morning to share his second track appropriately titled About Leaving (Again). It's a gorgeous garage/hip hop hybrid densely layered with (mostly) indecipherable vocal samples alongside meticulously placed bursts of hi-hats over a 2-step kick pattern. Instead of digesting his influences and running away with them, Rough Year wears them on his sleeve by sampling falling bullet shells, vinyl pops and film dialogue while...
