Sort of like Balkan Beat Box only ...

ACJones0112358

Sort of like Balkan Beat Box only more slow and spacy. None of the tracks are up to dance tempo. So, you would not want to use this as cardio workout music. Often the beats drop out altogether. I think that if you would want belly dance music, you would download this: http://www.emusic.com/album/-Insanyya-MP3-Download/11911728.html But anyway, back to Contraption Vol. 1, it is well produced, the sound quality and depth is excellent, even when listening in mp3 format. It is like electronic Reggae Dub with classical, gypsy or middle eastern textures thrown in. The textures really are ear-catching and it is still worth the download credits. It you liked this, you might like this: http://www.emusic.com/album/Various-Artists-Six-Degrees-Records-Electric-Gypsyland-MP3-Download/10859889.html ..and this: http://www.emusic.com/album/Various-Artists-Crammed-Discs-Electric-Gypsyland-2-MP3-Download/10969812.html

Contraption(EP Vol.I)

Birg

In short, if this sound grabs your ear, you will love it. Beats Antique sounds like a head on collision between Herb Alpert and his Tijuana Brass and Nine Inch Nails, with a mid eastern and gypsy sound thrown inhere and there for good measure. Refreshingly different!

Best stuff from Beats Antique

kerning-is-learning

This is, to me, Beat Antique's strongest work in a joyous collection of eclectic, cool, bumpin' grooves. I love all the tracks, but I particularly can't get enough of Oriental Uno, 100 Eyes, Mission, and Extra Extra. Totally addictive!

nothing else like it.....

This is a nice blend of belly dancing beats with slight ska icing and subtle hip hop influences. It is innovative and very well done. ...and addictive.

Dancers Beware

sticksandtwiggs

You may just be sucked into an entire albumn of wonderful fun beats! I use this CD much in my dance classes and everyone really loves the fresh sound with a smattering of circus undertones. If you are trying the bellydance style of Tribal or Tribal Fusion/Modern, this is a must have for your playlists!!!

Ear Catching Sounds

marlinmc

Listened to this one on a whim and was immediately intrigued. I guess you would call this "World Music" but I don't know what world "Beats Antique" comes from. Whatever world it is they have a great imagination and they love a great beat. Check out "100 Eyes", this is the one I had to download after hearing the sample. Also the production is excellent and yields depth and texture to the infectious beat these folks lay down. If you are looking for something different than your standard musical fare then this album will amply reward you.
