Beats Antique: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Mar 28 2012

Beats Antique, the local trio of multi-instrumentalists David Satori and Tommy Chappel, and composer, arranger, and belly dancer Zoë Jakes, produces a psychedelic mash-up of Middle Eastern grooves, Balkan wedding music, flamenco, French gypsy jazz, hip-hop, dubstep, and glitchy electronica that would sound at home blasting in any club from New York to Cairo. True to the group's moniker, its members dig deep into traditional tonalities from all over the world, but the folkloric sounds they find get twisted into their own global groove. Their onstage blend of computer-generated sound, live instruments, and Jake's inventive dancing makes every performance unique.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
