Aphotic Segment 010 | February 23rd 2011

What a spectacular showing at last week's Aphotic Segment. There were lots of heavy boozes, including myself, that kept it vibin' until the bartender Andrew was forced to banish us all from the premises - a true sign that I'm at least following through on some of the goals that I set out to achieve through this monthly event.

Continuing, Dan Kinney provided an unusual but certainly enjoyable selection of funk, techno and classic rock. Very nontraditional from an Aphotic standpoint, but nonetheless, the kind of character-driven music selection that I've come to embrace. There aren't too many dj's in this city that will play Bob Seger and Isolee in the same dj set. Maybe Psycho or Jared Wilson, but that's about end of the line. Moreover, Detroit can expect to see alot of Dan Kinney as his newly realized hobby as a dj becomes more prevalent in and around the environs of Detroit. Bright future for this guy!

Aphotic Segment 010 - The Walrus Edition

If one were to surmise the comparable attributes between a walrus and Detroit’s very own Daniel Kinney, then your description may read as followed: both are extremely sociable creatures, prone to loud bellowing, sometimes snorting……. and both have enough fortitude to adapt to the extreme conditions of their environment. Environment, you say? Well sure, why not. One’s from the Polar Arctic, while the other resides in Detroit. Might as well be the same, if you ask me. At any rate, one could even further surmise that a moniker like “The Walrus” is a fairly applicable name for such a strikingly similiar gentleman.

Call it tenacity, persistence, even thick-skinned. Ah…. what the hell! Why not even call it the blubber effect. Point being, that while Mr. Kinney hasn’t quite grazed the vast domain of Detroit’s fertile disc-jockey ocean, his walrus-like instincts positions him in a unique advantage above most newbies who are testing the waters for their very first time. And similar to the infinite ocean, Mr. Kinney’s musical selections are equally as boundless; blues, rock, soul, funk, electro, indie, and shaman-beats….. among many other titillating aural delights.

Join us on Wednesday, February 23rd as Aphotic Segment proudly presents the first ever public dj performance from Dan Kinney, a.k.a. “The Walrus”. The beats will certainly be heavy, so make sure you have what it takes to survive these elements!

Aphotic Segment 009 | January 26th 2011

It's been of towering priority to invite fellow music aficionado Kevin Sears, since the round tables session that conceived the very idea behind Aphotic Segment. Of the few years that I've had the pleasure of getting to know Kevin and his music collection, I've always found the smaller, intimate settings to be ideal. He lurks in the shadows of vast genre and treads heavily into each respective category's murky backwaters. It's weird, it's experimental, and most often, it's something I have yet to hear. Yes, this one's certified approved (download part 2); a little electro-y, alot of funky.... and just a little bit of James Blake For good measure.

Please be sure to join in next month as we feature the epic and inaugural opening of benderhaus head-spinster, "The Walrus", a.k.a. Dan Kinney!
