CD Release: It's a TeknoHaus 5 Dec 2009

It's a TeknoHaus - 5 Dec 2009

This set was recorded in Zenophonic Studios on 5 Dec 2009. The name is a play on words that speaks to two of Zenith's loves... tekno and (tek)haus.  A consistent theme throughout this mix is Zenith's jazz/electro attitude signature rhythm. Plan on some good ole' fashioned rump shakin' when you play this mix!

This set is available in several formats. This set is available as a zip archive to promote downloading all the tracks in one click at both 320kbps and 128kbps fidelity as well as in one track in both 320 kbps and 192 kbps fidelity.

Remembering 9-11, my own personal story

I'll never foret 9-11. I worked @ I lived less than 5 miles from the pentagon.

I had gotten back from my morning run before work. Back when I had a TV, I was in the habit of turning it on before work in the morning to watch the news while I did my "after run" stretching.

i turned it on just after the first plane had hit the one tower. i thought i was watching a clip from a new movie coming up. i hadn't yet comprehended that i was watching an actual plane getting ready to fly into the pentagon down the road

i called my boss. didn't even understand what he said... he said something in mumble speak and hung up. i knew better then to call back. i just headed to work as fast as i could...

that day of work will be etched in my brain forever. the technology team broke up into different tasks to help our website stay up during the extraordinary traffic.

my job was to monitor 5 of our web servers for potential hacks. other team members took all non-essential high-bandwidth hogging programs off of the front page and onto a 2nd front page in order to make our front page highly available.

we knew everyone would be on our site all day checking on loved ones and we knew it needed to stay up. we were the only major news website who stayed up with 98% availability that day!!! we were proud of that!

all of our lives were changed forever that day. not for the least of reasons that if i had stayed on my old career path from 2 years prior that i might have been with one of my old co-workers who died in the pentagon.

let us never forget all of those extraordinary human beings that lost their lives trying to save others. let us never forget.

remembering 9-11....

DJ AM, what a tragedy

It sucks that we haven't learned from the past. It sucks that the benzos they prescribed for DJ AM, aka Adam Goldstein, for anxiety after his plane crash last year triggered a relapse for him after 11-12 years of sobriety. Apparently benzos are tricky and have done this to other people. Why did they prescribe them for him? Was there nothing else?

What a tragedy.

Here's the video here:

Holey Sh*t, Part DOH!!!

Seriously. 31.73 GB and it's the 7th of August 2009. China has downloaded 25 GBs.

I have to call my website provider but I'm dreading it. What if they tell me it's gonna cost a zillion dollars??? But I have to call on Monday because yesterday was an 8.69 GB day and today is already at 4.79 GBs.

I've been posted and reposted... Serious viral marketing.

I'm afraid to that it's a miserable download experience also. Well what can I say... hit download and hurry up and wait?

Thanks for your patience!

Holey Sh*t

Seriously. My website statistics monitoring program has had China downloading about 25 GBs per MONTH from me.

But now they updated their engine to include my new stuff... And it's 5 August 2009 and they've already downloaded 17.05 GB. Did I mention it's the 5th of August?

5.5 GBs so far today. TODAY.

I'm actually going to have to have to call my website hosting place as I will be going over 100 GB which is my upper limit of data transfer. I don't know what happens then.

I was @ 85 GB last month although only 65GB was "viewed" versus robot traffic.

I don't think the website hosting place cares. I think they will charge me big $$$ whether a robot is to blame or not. Ugh.

Why Double CD Release Party? A true life story

Well I'll tell you why. Because when I was first trying to book this party @ Anu it was suggested that I do the CD release party. I think the individual in question was unaware that I do a CD release every 3 - 4 times/month anyway just 'cuz.

I just wanted to book the party and was willing to say whatever to hurry the process along. I'm a busy girl. So I said yes.

Along comes the Big Love Show and it was my favourite ever. Or one of them. The reason why is this student couple heard me on the radio in my first record and decided to come to the studio and hang out with the DJ. That happened about 15 mins in. The campus isn't that big in a car I s'pose.

I had such a good time with them there although I didn't pay enough attention to my mixing (if you ask me). But I was so happy and it was so fun so so what? Hmm? So that ended up being CD Numero Uno.

Mad Love: Live @ the Big Love Show, 11 May 2009

but that was 11 May. Party was 18 July. Berlin changed my life. Profoundly. Changed me. I know what I want now.

So it was time to go into the music and document just how much this year's travels have changed me.

What I love about this CD is every one I met along the way had a hand in it. Someone would invite me somewhere or tell me to go see someone else... It was like an adventure following bread crumbs. Also, I've had the pleasure of witnessing a lot of the artists on here's handywork... I feel so lucky. So here it is:

Eindlich!!! Finally!!!

Sheessus H. Christ. I finally finished cutting this new CD into tracks. The one from May 11th is still yet to be done. This was the longest cutting session I have *ever* had. You who use iPods and tracks are going to notice a huge difference in the transition between songs on the mp3s...

By the way, if you iPod/iTunes folks hadn't realized... After importing you should highlight all tracks in the albums and do a get info. Navigate to the last tab in that dialogue box (i forget the header name). Select gapless album: yes. That way, you can hear the music as it's intended to be heard.

As for me, I figured I would at least get one whole CD with art work done to pass off tomorrow when my friend usually makes his way up for the weekend. That way he can get to work reproducing @ least one of the CDs this weekend. Although his huge monthly is also Sunday so we'll see 'bout that.

So now I'm finishing the cover for the CD and reproducing a few advance copies for people and uploading everything to the internet

I'm so busy right now that I am just *now* getting around to eating despite the fact that my studio is actually the larger half of my kitchen. I sit right next to a refrigerator and I'm still too busy to eat. Seriously.

I'm alive.... well sort of

I have spent the last few days just playing music, working on computers, and going for long walks each day... between 1:15 mins - 2 hours. One long walk a day keeps the doctor away. Sometimes I take my iPod but sometimes, it's all ambient noise... i call it san francisco street bogie

i have been fighting with this computer of mine trying to get a different operating system on this new internal drive i got. now i'm going to put os 10.5.6 for the intel chip on it... wish me luck!

i am recording a new set in the next few days also... so i will not be out & about until Friday night... I've just got too much to do

The Legendary Bar 25 in Berlin, Germany

A lot of Berlin locals don't like Bar 25 because it's a bunch of tourists and guerilla/gorilla-style dancing... take your pic. However, it's one of those things that must be experienced. The you-tube clip below is from 31 May 2009, 5 - 8 AM with Dan Curtin.

These pics are from the Sunday night before, 24 May 2009. On Sunday nights, Bar 25 hits legendary status... See for yo' bad self:

Sunset Parties: One of the things that makes San Francisco spectacular

It was one of the Sunset crew that first inspired me to become a DJ. Sunset parties are put on by the Pacific Sound crew and have been a tradition since 1994. Yesterday was the first party @ treasure Island. It featured the legendary wighnomy brothers. Rumor had it that they completely destroyed it @ DEMF and now I see what all the hub-bub is about. Their music was mind-boggling! Not to mention that one Mr. Jaybird aka Jason Peacock turned in an explosive closing set. I mean wow oh wow oh wow.

But, this party cost thousands of dollars to put on so we should all donate, Ja? Make a donation @ using the e-mail address: and any donation over $25 gets a free Sunset CD in the mail (WOO HOO!!!)

And lastly, but not leastly, let's hook you up with some pics & a little hot you tube action, no?

First of all, here's me quite clearly having a fabulous time! It's blurry but this is my first picture from my new camera phone!

and here's some other videos of the mayhem

Sunday, May 31, 2009


So today I proudly got my carcass out for some more touristing. I went to Hamburg Bahnof, a Berlin Contemporary Art Musuem and then wound my way through the Tiergarten to Siegessäule, Berlin's victory column. Siegessäule is situated in the center of the Tiergarten and the center of Berlin.

A long windy spiral staircase takes you to the top (sorry, no elevator kidz.... you're going to have to schlep your shiznit up some stairs). I'm proud to report I did the whole stair case, no break, no problem as I've gotten pretty fit during my time in Europe... Must be all that dancing and loose men! I'm joking.... or am I? That's for me to know and you to die wondering about!

Here's a subset of my photos, all clickable to full-sized pics












Look ma!!! I'm in Berlin... & I got no hands!!!
