We had a fantastic show on Saturday and really enjoyed sharing a stage and getting to hear some new music by Gentleman Loser with a special appearance by The Mad City Sister Nuns along with some really well done NIN covers by incekt! Shotglass Sally joined us with grinding for four of our songs and Mizz Lillzz did a couple of fabulous sword belly dance routines on the back stage during the intervals between bands. Also there were absolutely delicious KUPCAKES by Kate!

There was a really good crowd with lots of energy and friends we haven’t seen in many years. We showcased three of our new songs that will be on our new album “Voyager” coming out Summer 2013, which were a smashing success! We also sold a few CD’s, made some new friends, and only came away with a few minor cuts n bruises.

Our next live show will be with Thought Thieves in Minneapolis, MN at Ground Zero with Bondage A Go Go immediately following!

Inferno NightclubOur very own DJ Psych0tron  along with DJ Siberia  rocked the  Inferno Nighclub for REVERB this past Saturday! Many of us were out with our dancing shoes and attire on, excited for a fun night of great music. We were were not disappointed! The music was on fire and the floor was full the entire night. Some of us even hurt ourselves dancing for hours on end.

There were a lot of people in attendance who kept the club hopping until after bar time! If you’re looking for a place that is beautifully and artistically decorated, with fabulous dance music, friendly patrons, and hot bartenders, then the Inferno Nightclub is the place for you.

Sensuous Enemy will be playing at Inferno Nightclub on Saturday, April ¬†27th, ¬†with our Milwaukee friends Incekt¬†and am.psyche, with more fun things to see and hear that we’ll reveal in a couple of weeks.

This is one of the most beautiful and amazing human success stories I’ve heard all year. Jodi DiPiazza is an inspiration to all of us! Music has always been something that has been a way for humans to express feelings and emotions in order to let go of all the pain and suffering inside of each and every one of us. Music is comforting and soothing in so many ways. Whether we are musicians or just enjoy listening to music, we all enjoy music to some extent or another.

There are a number of world renowned musical composers who were suspected to have had Autism including Beethoven, Mozart, Strauss, and Bartók as well as diagnosed contemporaries musicians LadyHawke, Peter Newman, Peter Tork, Matt Savage, and Sara Lonsert.

Our very own Bob will be presenting the final REVERB event of 2012. We’re giving you folks a special treat. CHRONOTRIGGER was one of the most popular Saturday formats from the 2011 Inferno calender, and for one evening we’re bringing it back by popular demand.

For the uninitiated, here’s how it works:

CHRONOTRIGGER is a chronological restrospective of the very best in hard club music. We will journey through 20 years of anthems and club favorites, moving forward in time as the night progresses. Each hour features a different DJ pair playing tracks only from a specific time block, becoming more current with each hour until we arrive at today’s offerings at the end of the night.

Your entertainers for the evening will be DJs Whiterabbit, Siberia, Mike Carlson, Mindphaser, and psych0tron. The DJ/time slot schedules follow:

1993-1996 – Siberia vs. psych0tron
1997-2000 – Mindphaser vs. Mike Carlson
2001-2004 – Whiterabbit vs. Siberia
2005-2008 – Mindphaser vs. Whiterabbit
2009-2012 – psych0tron vs. Mike Carlson

We hope to see you there! REVERB has been a blast for all of 2012, and we’re going to end it with a bang at this event! Be sure to check out the Inferno anniversary party happening in December, and stay tuned for REVERB details for 2013.

Doors at 9PM, 21+ ID required. NO COVER 9 – 10PM or with valid student ID $4 COVER AFTER 10PM

I really enjoyed finding this “Killer Infographic” from¬†Digtal Cowboys Blog.

Although making money has never been a primary goal for Sensuous Enemy, we do want to make sure that what we are doing follows most of these great suggestions for at least following our dream as a musician. We will continue to write, record, and perform as long as we keep our dream alive and keep striving for excellence.

Cyber Perversion Loki and Thor

Thank you to all of our darklings who made it to the 3rd annual Cyber Perversion show at Club Inferno in Madison, Wisconsin! We had a lot of fun  with our Avengers costumes and we really enjoyed playing with our co-villains Cynergy 67 (Upper WI), V is for Villains (Chicago, IL), and AS/OF (Minneapolis,MN), along with DJ EfN (Green Bay, WI), and our very own DJ Psych0tron (Madison, WI).  Thanks to Apollo of  the Inferno for  a great venue space and to Rooster for running sound for all of us.

We were able to showcase two of our new songs ‚ÄúFreedom from Religion‚ÄĚ and ‚ÄúSirens of the Sea‚ÄĚ, we just completed this past September. Both songs went over really well and we received a few kudos for them. ¬†“Freedom from Religion” is a word speak with a melodic chorus. Since we have never done a song like this ¬†before, the style of writing and performance really shocked some some people. “Sirens of the Sea” is definitely going to be a dance floor favorite as many started bouncing as soon as it began. All in all, it was a really fun fest and we look forward to doing it again next year!

Over the next few months, we’ll be working hard to write and record music for our next CD “Voyager”. We’re excited to get something new into your hands by Summer of 2013!

Sensuous Enemy 2012 Promo ShootSince you last heard from us in August, we’ve been working on a few new songs this fall that we’re excited to showcase for you on October 20th. We’ll be performing at Club Inferno in Madison, Wisconsin for the 3rd Annual Cyber Perversion. The first song we previously performed at our last show titled Red Ropes, was inspired by a beautiful woman who thoroughly enjoys sensory rope play. The second song is Freedom from Religion, which we think will be a new favorite. We’ll be performing this one in a different style that imitates or mimics speak-say or rap using a female computer voice setting. Finally the third song is Sirens of the Sea we’re attempting to finalize this week.

Aside from working full time, I’m also attending Madison College trying to finish up my A.S. in Marketing. In one of my classes this semester I’m working as an Intern for the Literacy Network of Dane County, Madison. This will really help me gain experience working for a business doing Marketing with an emphasis on Social Media. Needless to say, it’s been a rough month, but we’re still able to squeeze in a couple of rehearsals each week to make sure we’re staying on top of things and to prepare for our next show on in October.

Right now we have about half the songs we need for our next CD “Voyager”, and although we wanted to get it done by the end of the year, it looks like it’s going to be more like Spring of 2013 if all goes well. So keep listening and tuning in each week as we talk about the process of creating these songs and what inspires us.

It is with much sadness today that we announce our label Radio-Active-Music will no longer be in business. We have thoroughly enjoyed working with Laura Hofford Wilder, the owner, over the past two years and wish her the very best in her endeavors as she continues on with her new life in Colorado

We are thankful that we had the opportunity to have met and worked with so many wonderful and talented musicians, like The Dark Clan¬†and XuberX, whom we’ve gotten to know much better due to being on the same label. It’s been a good run and we hope to find another label with as much vim and vigor as Radio-Active-Music!

So, until we find a new label home, you can still find us here at sensuousenemy.com¬†and on CD Baby.¬†We look forward to whatever the future has in store for us and we hope you’ll remember all the by-gone labels that brought you so many great artists and songs!
