Five years after their inception, Knoxville based Arpetrio is one of the fastest growing live-electronic experiences on the circuit. Described by fans as “captivating,” and “pushing the boundaries of electronica and jam music,” Arpetrio has shown they are a force to be reckoned with drawing huge crowds all over the southeast. Arpetrio combines the precision of a DJ with the vivid expression of a live band creating a fusion experience like no other. The pulsing bass beats combined with the technology of laptops and sophisticated production tools, result in the finest elements of jam, electronica, jazz-fusion, trip-hop, and psychedelic music.
Gaining notoriety by sharing the stage with acts such as Shpongle, Perpetual Groove, Eliot Lipp, EOTO, RJD2, Eskmo, Future Rock, Toubab Krewe, Nosaj Thing, Signal Path, Dubconscious, U-Melt, Sub Swara, Prefuse 73, Papadosio, and Zoogma, as well as playing festivals like Trinumeral and Dexfest, Arpetrio has quickly gained speed and a fan base that is irrefutably one of the best. Audiences can feel the energy from each successive beat and swirling electronic sound. With each show, Arpetrio continues to experiment with new combinations of sounds and textures resulting in a unique experience every time. It’s a juicy jamtronica revolving around versatile structures, while being slapped around by deep improvisation, capped off with blocky arpeggiators fused into live instruments. ((Are-PET-trio))
