Masterklass #10 - Oddities, Outtakes, B-Sides & Album Tracks from the '80s by Onda Sonora


Red Bull Elektropedia Masterklass is not just another random mixtape series. Every episode tells the story of a love affair between a DJ and a certain genre, era, label or any kind of subject matter interesting enough to be turned into a proper mixtape. We select the DJs and musicians based on their knowledge of (and enthusiasm for) music - giving them absolute freedom to show off their insights.

Next up: Onda Sonora, bringing you a mix that showcases their love for the odd-one-out. The Brussels boys love digging just that little deeper, beyond the well-known “classics” or tracks pushed by labels as singles. Combined with a fondness for the experimentalism and non-conformism of certain 1980s music, this results in a big collection of tracks they’ve come to cherish and slip in their sets to spice them up "rather than do it with so-called mediocre exclusives that are usually far more common than these dusted off gems." Enjoy!
