Masterklass #29: Arp Love by Just Nathan


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. Subscribe yourself to our Masterklasses today and get a PhD in music sciences tomorrow.

We give the honors to Just Nathan for number 29!

"An arpeggio (Italian: [arˈpeddʒo]) is a musical technique where notes in a chord are played or sung in sequence, one after the other, rather than ringing out simultaneously. Arpeggios allow monophonic instruments to play chords and harmony and help create rhythmic interest.
Arpeggio's are repetitive, sometimes throughout the whole track, sometimes popping up somewhere. They can take the lead, create pulsating basses or exist in the background. One thing is certain, Arpeggio's always lead you into a trance.
With this musical technique in mind, I browsed through my record collection and made a selection of very old to very new tracks.
