Beats Antique’s newest EP, Contraption vol. II, is another experimental tangle of genres that incites vivid imagery and an urge to dance. The heavy dub basslines splashed with world inspired melodies are familiar from Beats Antique’s previous albums; however, Contraption vol. II seems to tell a darker story, with only occasional glimpses of the happier grooves reminiscent of previous songs such as Roustabout.

The album opens with “The Allure”, in which bells and a violin playing an airy melody are violently interrupted after 30sec when heavy hip-hop drums roar in over the top. This concoction of heavy bass topped with floating high notes, along with suggestive starts, stops and sudden direction changes, sets the scene for the album.

“Crooked Muse” featuring Lynx, strays from the usual path. With an absence of electronic tracking and Lynx’s seductive drawl a key feature, “Crooked Muse” is a meandering ballad telling of a tragic love.

The final two tracks, “Busto Balkans” and “Bloody Bones”, bring back the circusy tones that feature in many of Beats Antique’s previous works; however a darker story still prevails, with minor tones and sad laughter interrupting the nostalgic circus jingles and weaving the final tracks into the feel of the rest of the album.

All in all Contraption vol. II is a successful continuation of Beats Antique’s musical experiments that, with its muddle of genres, instruments and sounds, showcases the talents of the worldly multi-instrumentalists that are Beats Antique. While Contraption vol. II does have more minor undertones and invoke images of a darker world than Beats Antique’s previous works, it is still thoroughly dancable and 100% enjoyable.
