Growing like wildfire under the canopy of live electronica and experimental world fusion music, the acclaimed musical trio Beats Antique masterfully merges modern technology, live instrumentation, brass bands, string quartets, glitch, and dubstep. With a stage performance containing more sensory indulgences than the most lavish genie’s lair, Beats Antique will indulge their fans to a raw, animalistic musical event that blurs the lines between the provocative, the spiritual, and the artistic while still maintaining allegiance to the muses of class and beauty.
Beats Antique is best imagined as an innovative creature built from the cumulative heritage of the world’s music chasing its tail. However vivid that image, when a marching band groove crashes into bluesy folk chords only to be accompanied by electronic beats and Middle Eastern melodies, you’ll still be surprised and taken to a place you hadn’t previously known existed.

Hailing from Vancouver, BC (and inspired deeply by two years in San Francisco before recently moving to Denver, Colorado), ill-esha burst onto the North American electronic scene originally as a drum & bass vocalist featured on various releases for the likes of Breakbeat Science, Fokuz, and BluSaphir, gradually becoming known for the seamless incorporation of original vocals and MCing into her DJ sets. Her multi-dimensional approach spans every color in the bass music rainbow, creating a dynamic live show which has set ill-esha apart amidst some of electronic music’s most groundbreaking acts – her current live show features mostly original music chopped, screwed and beatmatched with live vocal effects and loops over top.
