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":

    If you happen to have a love for all things pop culture and were thinking of going to the San Diego Comic-con, think again. We at IX Daily hate to break it to you, but the San Diego Comic-con’s dead; the Montreal con, which was held at the Palais des Congres from the 12th until the 14th of September, is the new place to be.  Actually, you’re better off attending any of the smaller conventions, to be more exact. Although the San Diego Comic-con’s one of the biggest comic and pop...

    Having previously joined forces on the massive “40 Cows” last summer, Habstrakt & Megalodon combine talents once again, this time on a new four track EP titled “The Storm”. Released via Never Say Die, home to SKisM and Zomboy, it's an exploration in serious bass weight. “Yabba Dabs” sets things off with syncopated rhythms and dipping bass, extra points for guessing the voice behind the vocal sample too. Title track “The Storm” incorporates big snares and womping lead bass while “Riddim 101...

    This past weekend was Montreal Psych Fest and I couldn't have been more happy to have gotten the chance to go. Osheaga is great and all but sometimes it's nice to be able to see a band without risking suffocation. You could tell most of the people in attendance were familiar with one another, happy to be celebrating another year of Psych Fest. Everyone at the event was clearly out to have a good time and just enjoy the music, no need for bullshit or putting up a front. A redeeming quality...

    Ahhhh... INSTAGRAM! The lovely kryptonite of our beautiful faces and coffee orders; our raison d'être. It is not a capital secret we looove taking photos and uploading them to this app and show the world our creative side. Well, it seems taking photos of almost everything we do has paid off, since now hundreds of Instagram photos have been put together to create a short film by artist Thomas Jullien. Thomas Jullien used over 800 photographs from different users to create a flawless...

    Leave it to Marc Jacobs to take the normcore trend to the next level. His show at NYFW (New York Fashion Week), held yesterday, left beauty editors everywhere speechless when he unveiled his runway look. No make-up, not one drop. “Only moisturizing lotion and that’s it,” said Francois Nars, the head make-up artist for the show. When someone asked if they would blot out under-eye circles, Nars said, “No, we love the under-eye circles!” The models’ skin was left completely bare, however; they...

    Some generations are known for their hip music, crazy hairdoes, or their anarchist ideologies; our generation will be known for giving Justin Bieber a microphone (and an ego) and the selfie T-shirt.  Yes... You read that correctly; it seems our narcissistic, technology obsessed generation lacks in poets what it lacks in humbleness. I mean, the concept of a Selfie-Shirt (created by designer Timur Kim) clearly stemmed from a cultural/societal tendency of self-absorbed 20 somethings....

    Never Say Die sub-label, No Tomorrow Recordings, have been on quite a run this past half of the year. With releases from some of their signature artists as well as an introduction to a few fresh faces, they now return with the first EP of the month from Trumpdisco. Being the first installment of more to come, the THIRD EP is (go figure) a three-track structure of electro house patterns and addictive rhythms. It’s available via Beatport now, so be sure to grab your copy today. Stream the entire...

    I'm a firm believer that style is more than just the clothes you wear; it's how you carry it. And thanks to our image obsessed, selfie crazed world how you pose in front the camera is now an art form. From Duck Face, to Planking and Gang Signs, rocking 'Rap Squats' is a trend on the rise. While the definitive anatomy of the Rap Squat is highly contested; simply put it is a squat pose in front of a camera (or with hopes of being captured on camera) to imply you are 'Hard AF', 'Thug' or a '...
