Beats Antique is an electronic melting pot of dubstep, gypsy folk music and Middle Eastern melodies and anything in between. Zoe Jakes, David Satori, and Tommy Cappel have been performing together as Beats Antique since 2007. Their live shows often feature the violin, horns, accordions and many other instruments you wouldn’t even know the name of much less expect to see being played by band members wearing horse masks while belly dancing. Beats Antique’s tour schedule is rigorous and they are headliners of many festivals around the world including this weekend’s summer festival closer, Earthdance.
Blind Threshold is their fifth release and features glitchy, laser-guided harmonica provided by Blues Traveler frontman John Popper, vocals from Lynx, Swan Palermo and Eva Salina, and was mastered by the electronic music producer Dave Tipper. It is an amazing release that is even more complex and interesting in its layering of unique sounds and rhythms than their previous albums. Each new release sets the bar higher and higher and Beats Antique continues to amaze. Blind Threshold is most definitely my number one pick for Album of the Year. Be prepared to have your minds blown!
