Arpetrio is touring harder than ever before. The mix of complex production tools and sophisticated compositions result in the finest elements of jam, electronica, jazz-fusion, trip-hop, and psychedelic music. As one of the southeast’s fasting growing electronic groups, Arpetrio has demonstrated their drive through constant touring, playing shows spanning from northern Michigan down to South Florida and everywhere in between. Arpetrio combines the precision of a DJ with the vivid expression and versatility of a live band creating a unique fusion experience at each show. Gaining notoriety by acting as direct support for acts such as Conspirator, Shpongle, Eliot Lipp, EOTO, RJD2, and countless others, as well as playing festivals like Rootwire, Werkout, Bond Fire, Karma, Trinumeral and Dexfest, Arpetrio has quickly gained speed and a fan base that is arguably 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 one of a kind experience each time.
