Looking forward to December’s edition of Aphotic Segment and hope you are too. We’re pleased and excited to have our friend, Jackson Lee, join us for this month. It’s been far too long since he last played here and let me tell you, there’s been a whole lot of good music coming from this gent as of late.

Jackson Lee is the main conspirator behind the Memphis-born but Brooklyn-based imprint, Mystical Disco. His musical bend is heavily inspired by a combination of music frequencies. As a longtime Memphian, Jackson has drawn a great deal of inspiration from giants like Larry Heard, but as a general enthusiast music, Jackson has also been heavily influence by Detroit techno, British post-rave experimental and ambient stylings, as well as movie scores. His latest release on Mystical Disco, all analog of course, plays like a slower, druggier re-interpretation of the highly influential Analord records series by Aphex Twin. Pair that with his early Mystical Disco 002, which harkens back to the golden era of Strictly Rhythm and you have a producer / dj that is full of an unexpected but pleasant range.

In true Aphotic Segment fashion, expect to hear Jackson play a bouquet of mysterious records that he does not often reserve for other environs. There could be a hodge podge of early Memphis garage or dark ambience or even Berghain bangers. We’re not quite sure, but that’s all the more reason to join us. Opening the night of music will be resident selectors, Soren and Drew Pompa. Always Free, Always key!
