Aphotic Segment w/ Julian Kendall & Ali Berger

December 15, 2015 at 9:43 pm


Very excited for this new year edition of Aphotic Segment, as we’re featuring two of Detroit’s young and rising deejays / producers for a night of both live performances and record crate digs. On the palette for this January are locals, Julian Kendall and Ali Berger.

Julian Kendall has been quietly making waves in the music scene here in Detroit this past year. He co-produces the monthly dance party, Temple Trax, with him homie Con Man, which they host at Temple Bar. He also slings vinyl at Hello Records on Sundays, lending his vision to help curate the deep collection that has come to define the standard that Hello is known for. Julian has a penchant for Detroit jams, with heavy leanings towards boogie, r&b, and electro-funk. He’s a young cat but his knowledge and collection suggest that he’s been in the game for quite some time. We always look forward to his mix.

Joining him on the bill, is recent Detroit transplant, Ali Berger. Ali migrated to Detroit from Boston on the sole premise of enveloping himself with the legacy of Detroit music. He’s been dropping alot of great music lately, including cassettes, cds and vinyl for the likes of Virtual Urban Records, Sun Rad and Trackland Acid Dealerships. He released an acid thunderstorm last year, alongside of John Barera and Baltimoroder for Boston imprint, Zakim. Since arriving in Detroit, he’s been spotted hauling around a suitcase filled with his Boss Doctor Rhythm and that’s the kind of style that peaks our interests here at AS. He’s bringing out a live rig for this performance, so don’t sleep on this one folks!

Per usual, resident deejay, Soren and Drew Pompa will be opening the night of music with their fine selections. We look forward to seeing you. Always free, always key!
