Beats Antique's background
A longtime ballet and jazz dancer, Zoe Jakes discovered belly dancing in 2000 and immediately fell in love. Having toured with such groups as The Indigo Belly Dance Company, the Yard Dogs Road Show, Bellydance Superstars and the Extra Action Marching Band, she has developed her own unique brand of belly dance, blending elements of Indian dance, tango and street dance. Jakes began to first experiment with electronic music while performing with Ableton Live alongside partner Dave Satori.
Meanwhile, Tommy Cappel, having been raised by two music teachers, continued to immerse himself in the music world as an adult. He studied percussion at the Berklee College of Music. Cappel studied a broad variety of genres, familiarizing himself with many different kinds of drumming patterns. He later moved to San Francisco, where he met both of his future bandmates.
Satori earned a degree in composition and music performance from the California Institute of the Arts. While in school, he founded an experimental music group called The Funnies and recorded two albums. After graduation, he joined the Afrobeat group Aphrodesia.
Beats Antique formed when Jakes approached her manager with the idea of creating an experimental music album alongside Satori and Cappel to showcase each of the their unique talents.
