Who: Ain’t No Love
Where: Reflections Cabaret, Haifax NS
When: October 18 2012 @9pm

Crowd: Reflections is a huge venue as far as Pop Explosion is concerned, and the early set time resulted in only about 40 skateboarding hip hop kids. Everyone else missed out.

Style: Hip Hop

Technicalities: Super energetic, with a great stage presence. Lots of bass, as to be expected. I felt that the DJ got drowned out a little with all the vocalists spitting rhymes, though.

Memorable Moment: Female vocalist Saidah Conrad started the set on stage alone, which had me thinking this was a sultry R&B group. Moments later, MCs 1990 and Beanz bounded onto the stage and tour up the first track, turning it from smooth R&B to a bangin’ hip hop jam.

Sex Appeal: Saidah Conrad -She was smokin’!

Memorable Song: “Love Me Lots” had a really slick progression.

Comments: Really awesome with impressive rhymes, but disorganized on set.
