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.

The prospect of a Trump presidency is terrifying. It's especially freaky for our neighbours to the south, who will have to face the full force of a totally crazy , arguably-successful businessman running their country (into the ground.) In the past, many Canadians have offered safe refuge from the...
