The gypsy fusion, live electronica trio Beats Antique announced new tour dates, including a stop at the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver on Saturday Dec. 3, 2011.
The band, that emerged out of the underground performance art scene in San Francisco, has acquired a strong following selling out their past Colorado date at the Boulder Theater April 8, 2011.
Their fall tour kicks off on Oct. 5, 2011, the day after their new album “Elektrafone,” is released. They are offering a free download of their first single “Catskillz” here. You can preorder the album now and get three instant track downloads before the release date.
The artisitic collective Beats Antique includes producers David Satori, Tommy Cappel and the stylings of belly dancer and music producer Zoe Jakes. Their music mixes brass instruments, dubstep, glitch, string quartets, jazz, bass, hip-hop and strong influences of world music elements.
Start with a blend of Satori and Cappel’s classical training in multicultural instruments, add to that mix Jakes’ experience with two major belly dance troupes and you will get Beats Antique’s sensational stage show. They have toured extensively on the festival circuit this past summer, including stops at Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Electric Forest and even opened for several Bassnectar shows.
Several of their recent songs performed live display a strong dubstep influence. The dubstep sound is described by allmusic.com as, “tightly coiled productions with overwhelming bass lines and reverberant drum patterns, clipped samples, and occasional vocals.”
The style orginated in South London and has made a massive impact on electronic music producers across the United States, especially in Denver.
The Denver Beats Antique show is one not to be missed. It will be full of surprises, enticing spectacle and musical bliss. You can find tour dates and ticket information on their Facebook tour dates page. Tickets are not on sale yet, but appear that they will be sold through Live Nation.
