Beats Antique To Play Bonnaroo Music Fest

Growing like wildfire under the canopy of live electonica and world roots music comes a masterful merge of modern technology, live instrumentation and seductive performance, built of brass bands and glitch, string quartets and dubstep: the musical trio Beats Antique.
 
The journey that led to Beats Antique today was a winding and twisted path from the west coast to the ancient trade routes of the silk  road. In this modern incarnation, 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.
 
In a prolific 3 years since Beats Antique emerged, the group has released 3 albums and a pair of EPs. Their third most recent album, Blind Threshold, was released Fall of 2010. Notable features of the new release include vaporous violins and Danny Elfman-esque dementia; glitchy, laser-guided harmonica provided by Blues Traveler frontman John Popper; and 2 very different vocal tracks that range between restless pop hooks and vibrant Eastern European dance loops. All wrapped into an intricate collection of heavy beats and sub bass.
 
Over the past 6 months Beats Antique have brought their overtly ambitious and unique stage show across the US. Having played Lollapallooza, Austin City Limits and Outside Lands, as well as a catalog of proper tours that include Bassnectar and Les Claypool among a multitude of other dates. Starting this week the band will hit the road again for another national tour. Their SXSW dates will be announced soon.
