San Francisco’s Beats Antique craft a delicious, multi-cultural, genre-defying musical gumbo that feels truly omnivorous. The ensemble is comprised of producers David Satori and Tommy Cappel—who have trekked worldwide sampling the world’s cultures—and producer/belly dancer (yes, you read that right) Zoe Jakes. Beat Antique’s new album is Blind Threshold and it draws broadly from hip-hop, dub step, Balkan brass, dance, Middle Eastern textures and more. Today we present the online premiere of the first single, “There Ya Go”, featuring John Popper of Blues Traveler. If you like what you hear, catch the group at one of their upcoming shows, listed after the jump.
