Get a slice of old-world exotica mixed with slinky new-school beats with Beats Antique, the only world-touring bellydance/electro/gypsy outfit roaming the land today. The West Coast collective — the Bay Area, to be exact — is touring behind Contraption Vol. 2, which hits shelves next week. A new video for the track "Cat Skillz" features scantily clad dancers of both sexes fighting to the death as the band plays just feet away. The group's sound enables them to play jammy music festivals like Bonnaroo while also drawing in kids from the EDM scene. Beats Antique also has one of the trippiest Instagram accounts we have seen from anyone, chronicling touring, weirdo imagery and the original art the band encounters the world over.
