Aphotic Segment – The Anniversary w/ Trent Abbe

June 2, 2015 at 7:07 pm


Aphotic Segment is back once again for your audio enjoyment, after a brief vacation in New York, flush with plenty of new vinyl that we’re looking forward to add to this month’s AS rotation. It’s been five years since AS first began its audio explorations and one year since we called Nancy Whiskey our newest home. As such, it comes with great honor to host our good friend, Trent Abbe, on the night of this anniversary.

Trent Abbe is the greatest example of a deejay’s deejay. His combined talents for creating the most unusual blends and making them work like butter, and also his impeccable tastes, have made him an early inspiration to Aphotic Segment. Trent was quite possibly the first deejay we ever heard mix punk, idm, techno, funk and house within the same mix, which ultimately led us to re-define the ways by which we approached the art of mix making – in that mixing is often done best when it’s not based upon showcasing a particular scene or style but rather what is good versus what is not.

This will be a night of record willy-nilly of the finest. Opening the night of anniversary festivities are resident deejays, Soren and Drew Pompa. Always free, always key!

LOST SOUL: Rawaat // Publicist (Live) // Drew Pompa + Soren

May 9, 2015 at 5:44 pm


Toight Lost Soul Enterprises are taking over BK venue Palisades with a genre-bending lineup that navigates territories in between techno, acid, noise, postpunk, and other obscura.

More specifically: we’re presenting the NYC debut of Detroit-based RAWAAT, one of only a couple of US artists releasing on the fiery Lobster Theremin label. His productions are richly texured collages, mechanically driven and full of grit, and his DJ sets are notoriously surprising for their intensity and ambitious scope, ranging from acid to arabic and anything in between.

We’re also psyched to host a rare live performance by PUBLICIST, aka Sebastian Thompson, drummer for post-rock heavyweights Trans Am, who has reinvented himself under the Publicist alias as a shadowy techno juggernaut, commanding an array of sequenced analog synthesizers while playing an electronically treated drum kit.

And joining us behind the decks are another pair of Detroiters, DREW POMPA and SOREN. Their Aphotic Segment monthly event is quickly becoming known as one of the most sonically adventurous affairs in the motor city, and their selections reflect why.

We’re bringing in extra sound reinforcements, and video projections all night by the homie SEIZURE SALAD. Tix are a mere 10 bucks on RA so grab em before 9pm tomorrow, they’ll be 15 at door.

Aphotis Segment w/ Lost Soul Enterprises

April 30, 2015 at 5:27 pm


Aphotic Segment is excited again for another monthly installment of cerebral cuts and for this session, we’re inviting our fine friends from New York for a back-to-back weekend collaboration with the Lost Soul Enterprise crew (See AS residents in New York the following weekend).

Lost Soul Enterprises began as a collaboration between Memphis transplant Richard Gamble and fellow Michigander, Mike Rogers, developing out a shared mutual interest for the need contribute a thoughtfully-curated party dedicated to house, techno, and disco… and anything considered within their far reaches. In 2012, these fellows launched their monthly event at the infamous Wreck Room, which would come to serve as a staple to the Bushwick music scene for nearly two years.

Since Wreck Room’s closure, LSE has taken their party into roving territory, producing one-off, clandestine late-night sweat parties that have developed a buzz in Brooklyn and NYC. They’ve been keen on promoting some of electronic music’s biggest rising stars such as Shawn O’Sullivan, Bryan Kasenic and Jared Wilson. Their label has also hit a stride in this new year and output looks to show no signs of letting up. As such, we are honored and overjoyed to invite our friends for a night of deep cuts. Richard will be running the rotation with residents, Soren and Drew Pompa. Mike Rogers will be performing a rare, live performance… his first ever in Detroit. We invite you to request your calendar dates and to screw your Monday nine to five. It’s okay, your boss will understand. Always free, always key!

Michael Rogers a.k.a. The Personator – Live (Lost Soul Enterprises)
Richard Gamble – DJ (Lost Soul Enterprises)


Residents: Soren and Drew Pompa
