Putting a foot down as to how to classify the music of Beats Antique is a futile endeavor. How can you explain a type of music that blurs the line between belly dance and hip-hop, world and electro-techno, spirituality and hedonism, divine and seduction…? Perhaps, these fluid and unique musical elements highly contribute to their universal appeal. Beats Antique initially found home in San Francisco’s underground dance and art scene. They were notorious for driving their audience out of their seats — everyone let their hair down and instinctively moved to the beat of Beat Antique’s raw and animalistic, yet modern electronic sounds. The threesome is composed of classically-trained and electronic music production masters David Satori and Tommy Cappel, and world-renowned producer and belly dancer Zoe Jakes. Beats Antique was formally launched in 2007 in conjunction with album producer Miles Copeland (brother of drummer Stewart Copeland of The Police). In 4 years, they have released 4 albums and 2 EPs. Their 2010 album, Blind Threshold, zoomed-up to #2 in iTunes’ electronic charts. According to Satori, “this whole new world of musical opportunities that we’re just starting to scratch the surface of.” Thus, they never tire of innovating and exploring. Each performance is an experience to be savoured, a unique journey that make audiences keep coming back for more.
