Femmes Fatales is a concept Album CD showcasing twelve original and/or exclusive tracks bysome of the industries hottest female DJ/producer/vocalists. With styles ranging from energetic trance, circuit and progressive house to breaks and drum n bass, the album elevates the position of women in the field (previously dominated by men) and illustrates the prowess and diversity they bring to the (turn) table. The ethereal 100 Stories by Broadway star Andrea Burns (Belle in Beauty & the Beast) nestles alongside new music from Colette (an exclusive BlackLiquid remix of her smash Feelin Hypnotized), Jes (from Motorcycle), Jan Johnston, DJ Keri, Angelique, Mea, Celeste Lear and others. This set also boasts Colleen Kelly on Remember Me (by groupmates Interstate), the follow-up to their ultra-successful I Found You which was one of the lead tracks on Paul Oakenfolds Grammy-nominated Creamfields release. Femmes Fatales was produced by Mike Burns, who along with DJ Mark Lewis comprise the group Interstate, Burns was the director of the critically-acclaimed documentary Peace Love & Beats and his music has appeared in television shows (including ESPN dailies) and several Indy films.

Celeste Lear and Divasonic did a 5 city tour in October to promote the release of the compilation CD "Digital Bliss volume 1" which was released on Celeste's indie label Boutique Electronique Records. The tour started in Los Angeles where Celeste played a joint show at The Temple Bar with live house/electro act Glycerin. Then she flew up to Portland and played two nights at the trendy Pala Lounge downtown. Next stop was Seattle where Celeste and Divasonic opened for local live drum and bass act Miss Solar System. Next was Celeste's home town show in Reno and then another gig in Sacramento. We sold a bunch of Cds, got a few write ups in local papers and had a special radio interview on a college station in Seattle.
