Favorite ThisBeats Antique new album Elektrafone released for streaming

Published: October 2, 2011

The Balkan big beat, performance art, and live electronic trio Beats Antique released their latest album today (available streaming). Elektrafone features a slew of guest performers playing everything from trumpet and banjo to the double bass and saw. That's right, like the lumberjack's best friend. David Satori, Sidecar Tommy, and Zoe Jakes have been touring nonstop since their last release, 2010's Blind Threshold, with acts like Bassnectar and The Glitch Mob. However, in that time, the band has managed to strengthen their already signature sound, which fuses Gypsy jazz, Hungarian and Eastern European folk melodies with grinding beats and future bass sounds. Still quite the theatrical act, Beats Antique has managed to once again capture the energy and enthusiasm of their exuberant live show in record form.
