Song Of The Day: Beats Antique - Skeleton Key

The tribal fusion electronic wonder known as Beats Antique have just released "Skeleton Key," the first free single off their upcoming album Contraption Vol. 2 which will be available September 18th. The brainchild of tribal belly dancer Zoe Jakes, and co-producers Sidecar Tommy and David Satori has been a welcome and refreshing addition to many summer festival lineups over the past years as this group has grown both creatively and in popularity.

Drawing influence from all over the world, their instrumental style is varied, allowing them to transition seamlessly from downtempo tunes into high energy dance tracks. The energy behind their music is enhanced only by the spectacular belly dancing performances from the groups co-founder, Zoe Jakes.

After a stellar performance at Red Rocks, opening for Thievery Corporation, and having performed at numerous festivals this Summer, Beats Antique is showing no signs of slowing down, with a performance at the North Coast Music Festival this Saturday, September 1st in Chicago and then kicking off their Fall North American Tour. Most interesting, perhaps, is that the group will be headlining the Great Convergence in Giza, Egypt during the Winter Solstice from December 20th-22nd alongside such artists as Random Rab, Bluetech and Govinda.
