In most cases these two cities are rivals, but for Ain’t No Love it’s all in the collaboration and that’s why they are 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 this welcomed Toronto based, Montreal inspired outfit. Although they have only been together for less than two years, this groundbreaking 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.
On February 19th, DJ Toure, producer and DJ for the legendary Hieroglyphics crew, will release his latest album, Toure’s Theory, via 101% Music/Hiero Imperium. Originally slated for release in 2012, Toure, like busy producers often do, had to put the album on hold, while he worked tirelessly in the studio producing for the likes of E-40, Hiero, and more. But now, with the album on the way, Toure is releasing the official remix for “She Likes It,” the lead single from Toure’s Theory featuring rappers B-Legit and D-Lo, and singer London.
“I wanted to bring together two different generations of hip-hop,” says Toure of the song, referring to B-Legit and D-Lo, two artists that, while separate by age, both have made their imprint in the Bay Area scene. “Even though you might not think it works,” adds Toure,” it does. They still compliment each other.” While the original version of this track was released last year, including a video, Toure’s remix offers something new for listeners by delivering a new feel. “I wanted to reintroduce the song with a different vibe, musically,” explains Toure. “I wanted to showcase my production and creativity, to give the song a nice, feel-good vibe.”

Pinder comes out firing with a track that proves he’s the “young incredible.” Produced by fellow Seattle-native Vitamin D and featuring DJ Vega, “Young Ra Ra” is a snarling street anthem that broods with J. Pinder’s concise and powerful lyrics. It’s the perfect rallying cry to get his people behind him, as the young emcee is up against the hottest new talent in hip-hop for the vaunted XXL distinction, from Angel Haze and Action Bronson to RiFF RaFF and Chief Keef.
It’s just the start of a year overflowing with excitement and potential. After finishing off 2012 with his undeniable “Careless Redux” mixtape presented by DJ Skee, J. Pinder has a new solo album underway and upcoming collaborations with Malik Yousef, RJD2, A.D.D and hip-hop hall-of-famer DJ Jazzy Jeff.

The Sennheiser Orpheus originally debuted back in 1991. It was designed and sold as a complete system: a table-top stereo tube amplifier, the power supply, an internal DAC, all the cabling, and of course the headphones themselves. The engineers in Germany used exotic materials to give the Orpheus sort of a timeless, Art-Deco-meets-steampunk vibe. It’s an electrostatic system — instead of traditional speaker cones inside the earcups, you’ll find thin pieces of film that vibrate when stimulated by electrical currents. The sound is amazing: lively, super-nuanced, and intimate.
Only 300 units were produced, and each one sold for $13,000 — a very large sum of money for a headphone rig, even by today’s standards.
