Check out this video of Beats Antique with Sidecar Tommy, David Satori and Zoe Jakes performing at Lightning in a Bottle and TempleSF 2008.  BEATS ANTIQUE is an oakland based group featuring ZOE JAKES, DAVID SATORI, AND SIDECAR TOMMY, which have stumbled down the rabbit hole and emerged anew on the other side. BEATS ANTIQUE forges a curious alliance between middle eastern traditions and potent west coast circus, underground hip hop, breakbeat brass band, downtempo, glitch and dubstep.

Supporting their 2nd album, COLLIDE (2008 CIA records), BEATS ANTIQUE’S DJ sets on BASSNECTAR’S “THE OTHER SIDE” tour feature their diverse sound collage as the opening act for one of the nation’s most well known DJ’s. ZOE JAKES, nominated as Zaghareet’s “Best Interpretive Artist 2007”, presents a unique take on Tribal bellydance, influenced by Art Nouveau, tango, Breakdance, and Indian classical dance. BEATS ANTIQUE has brought the paradox of electro-acoustic music into the future.

You can buy their tracks at their bandcamp site.

Here’s a video from their recent show in LA put on by The Do Lab.
