Aphotic Segment 009 w/ Kevin Sears

While very few have survived such risky adventures, many others have succumbed to the lethal exploration of deep sea dwelling. Those of global submariner success stories include Jaques Cousteau, Steve Zissou, and of course our favorite ROV, Jason. What many in the marine biology and sea sciences have blatantly ignored were the fierce, and dare I say revolutionary achievements of underwater craftsman, Kevin Sears.

Accolades aside.... not only has this sea-lab technician handled a 12th round hammer-fest from a gang of blood lusting great whites, he has carefully perfected the long distance spear of their precious little preys , without ever blinking. Yeah, eat your heart out Chuck Noland!

But even beyond his dolphin-like instincts, and stingray reflects, Mr. Sears has an even more unimaginable record collection, 20,000 leagues deeper than the abyss. As one of our greatest musical pleasures yet to grace the spotlight, Aphotic Segment is overwhelmed with the joy that comes with presenting such a rare performance - the Best of Kevin Sears. Believe, his record collection runs as deep as the ocean – it’s vast, eclectic, it swells…… and it’s real briny. Better check it!

Aphotic Segment 008 | December 31st 2010

Aphotic Segment changed the tonal direction for our New Year's party to reflect a dancefloor vibe,and who better to set the mood than longtime dj and vehement record collector, Trent Abbe. Raised in the fertile ground of the late 90's Lansing electronic music scene, Trent has been educated on the lessons of dialing in the crowd and doing damn near better than ninety five percent of most disc jockeys. His records reflect the nostalgia of techno and house, along with a pinch of classic disco and funk. Holding court previous to Trent, I keep a steady flow of dance rock, post-punk, and afro-funk, among others, so that I could sustain a level of intensity that was inevitable when Trent assumed the 1's and 2's.

Catch Aphotic Segment this month at the Woodbridge pub on Wednesday, January 26th. Featuring the stylings of Kevin Sears.
