Toronto-based hip-hip group Ain’t No Love is made up of four members: Saidah Conrad, Elias McBean, Roly Broere, and Liam Clarke.
Few artists can say they’ve performed alongside Calvin Harris and Redman, Rockie Fresh and Steve Aoki, but Ain’t No Love would prove the exception. Flowing between driving hip hop beats with a strong electronic influence, the break-out hip hop electro quartet from Toronto, with a sound cultivated in Montreal, have perfected the craft of body-moving music with attitude.
Rappers Roly and Elias control the crowd with ease as Saidah’s smooth voice hypnotizes the room, all over top of producer Liam Clarke’s heavy melodic backdrop. Some reviewers have labeled their sound as renegade pop. Others simply call it exciting.
Their live show is always memorable and has garnered critical acclaim as they hit the stages at some of the biggest festivals and industry showcases, including SXSW, CMW, NXNE, Pop Montreal, M For Montreal, and Halifax Pop Explosion. After beginning the year with the release of their second EP, Tears of Joy, and making noise with their single “Gone Already”, which is currently in rotation on MuchMusic and MTV and was also featured on mtvU’s “The Freshmen” show, the group prepares to head out to the UK for The Great Escape in May before launching a tour in Canada.
If the past few months have been any indication of what is to come, Ain’t No Love will be getting much love in 2013.
