Formed in San Francisco in 2007, Beats Antique is the musical alliance of producers David Satori, Tommy Cappel and world-renowned belly dance performer and producer Zoe Jakes. Satori and Cappel both trained classically before venturing to locations including Bali, West Africa and Serbia. With extensive backgrounds in multicultural music production, they command the spectrum of live and digital instrumentation with skills born of hip-hop and jazz. Jakes adds a third dimension as the multi-cultural and disciplinary dance counterpart, with her professional experience in two major Bellydance troupes. All of this sets the scene for the group’s stage show which has impressed audiences at festivals including Bonnaroo, All Good, Wakarusa, EDC Las Vegas, Outside Lands and Electric Forest. 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 heavy bass, electronic beats and Middle Eastern melodies, you’ll still be surprised.
