Ellinor Olovsdotter's 'Down On Life' is a sonic paradigm; as far as synthpop goes, it's nigh-on impossible to get better than the Swedish songstress' elysian double-barrelled callow dance and foamy, blistering pandemonium chorus. But she can't coast on one cut forever, so for her next trick, she's hurtling headlong away from electro-based pop noise, and instead deeper into dubstep, dancehall and the myriad dance genres of LDN – think D'N'B, jungle and grime. It's not entirely surprising given the hints dropped in previous ditties, including 'Down On Life', and the fact she's brazen about London's impact: "[She] slowly morphed into Elliphant through the course of a long (and lost) summer travelling in the UK with only a dubstep soundsystem for company."

The lead cut from her follow-up EP, Look Like You Love It, is a galvanising SWAT-led assault of MIA-grade politic gyration and avante-garde dance. The beats are dislocated, fractured and threshed by combine harvesters, the bass throbs like wasp stings and Olovsdotter's reggae vox are distorted, melted by fury and E-number energy. It's a mighty banger, with its crosshairs trained on discotheques globe-wide; with rhythms and pace this strong, she can't not really. 'All Or Nothing' is similarly bombastic, wielding elements of Jamaican patois and lighter dub moments between bubble-bloop synth droplets. Tribal rhythms and polyrhythmic percussion inject a ritualistic streak into the mixture, and though Olovsdotter calms things down in the pre-chorus, it's an elephantine salvo from Elliphant. Bunji Garlin, a ragga soca legend from Trinidad & Tobago, has a guest verse on the Diplo-produced song too.

Skrillex, the bro-step phenom, unholsters his dubzooka, firing a laser-guided rocket straight into broken-glass paean 'Only Getting Younger'. It feels more like his song than Elliphant's, who appears more as a guest vocalist than a headline artist, but the contrast between sanity-devoid dubstep throes and twinkling cinematic interludes is interesting. Semi-ballad, 'Everything 4 U', utilises blurred, woozy keys and scratchy, sketchy beats from hip-hop to create the backdrop for her to demonstrate her MC skills. She demonstrates a wide range of skills on this EP, some which you might not expect her to have lurking up her sleeves.

The EP's heavy on cherrypicked experiments, flitting from MIA to Rihanna to Wiley to Shabba Ranks (and guests Diplo and Skrillex), and Olovsdotter seems content burrowing away into these new regions for the time being. She creates intriguing music on Look Like You Love It, reminiscent of Robyn's 'Dancehall Queen' at times, and delving deep into fascinating digressions which you can easily imagine soundtracking sticky dancefloors across the planet. It's an EP with immense energy and confidence, and plenty of unexpected deviations into underground British and Caribbean dance sounds – so if you're looking for more of 'Down On Life', though there's a remix on the EP, just a heads up that you might not find much else like it here.
