* BEATS ANTIQUE *
From under the shelter of world acoustic music’s canopy, live electronica has bred a new beast built of brass band and glitch, dubstep and glockenspiel: the musical trio Beats Antique. The musical alliance of producers David Satori and Tommy Cappel is inspired and emphasized by their collaborative partnership with world-renowned belly dance performer and music producer Zoe Jakes.
The much anticipated sophomore album, Collide, from Oakland based trio Beats Antique is finally in stores and has fans already asking for more.
