Our 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.

Aaron Swartz, age 26 was a leading activist for the campaign against SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act), cofounder of Reddit, coinventor of RSS, and a highly active digital activist for open data and freedom of information sharing! He was too young to leave this world the way he did and we have to question why does such a brilliant mind decide to leave it all behind. Maybe it was the fact that “Mr. Swartz was indicted last Thursday by the United States Attorney for the District of Massachusetts, Carmen M. Ortiz, and the indictment was unsealed Tuesday. The charges could result in up to 35 years in prison and a $1 million fine” says the NYTimes Bits Blog. That is a huge sentence to have to face when you believe that the information you stole would benefit society and help people who really need it. It is a sad day today and we will remember how hard he fought for the freedoms our government is trying to take away!
Farewell Aaron Swartz. We will miss your open and intelligent mind. May you rest in peace.
VinylMint has created a cloud-based solution for musicians to jam and record in real time. I’m curious to see how well this works. Maybe now I can finally collaborate with musician friends without having to drive hundreds of miles for studio time.
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.
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 “Freedom from Religion” and “Sirens of the Sea”, 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!
Beyonce’s has one of sexiest and most provocative voices in the industry and she is bar none, one of the most beautiful black women I’ve ever seen! She is always so passionate about whatever she decides to sing about and puts her heart and soul into the lyrics and presentation. As a woman, I particularly like this song. I also think of what it would be like to be a man, how men treat women, and how I would also be a better man if I wasn’t a woman.
Now I probably wouldn’t think these thoughts if I hadn’t been born a woman. Even my drag queen friends like going back to being a man when they are done dressing up as women. Don’t get me wrong, being a woman certainly has its advantages, but sometimes I’d like to trade places to see what the world would be like from a man’s perspective. It seems that women in this century have to play both roles in order to get ahead and be on equal footing with men.
The double play in the video and the fact that the entire thing was in black and grey and white was a really nice touch. Overall, I think this is a really good video that touched me and made me smile. Hope you like it too.

Since 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!

I recently put together a vBlog about how I program stage lights for “The Void”. You’ll notice there aren’t any vocals on this particular song, because we haven’t actually recorded them yet. We will soon rectify this!
Let us know what you think.
