Chris ("Zenbi") Porter
Marketing entrepreneur turned globe-trotting DJ and chart-topping producer, Zenbi has quickly emerged as one of the hottest names in Washington DC's flourishing international tech- and tribal-house scene. Zenbi, translated as "Good & Beautiful" in Japanese, has dedicated his time to building a house music-centric lifestyle brand that clearly embodies those attributes.
Zenbi started spinning vinyl in the mid 90's in Philadelphia - being heavily influenced by the music culture pioneered by local legends Josh Wink and King Britt. The sound of Zenbi today has matured to incorporate an infectious blend of sexy tribal and tech house grooves that are increasingly putting him in high-demand.
Zenbi has packed crowds from Boston to Budapest, Miami to Los Angeles, and performed at major dance music festivals including BPM, Miami Music Week, Winter Music Conference, and ADE (Amsterdam Dance Event) to name a few. After traveling the world, Zenbi settled down and quickly found inspiration and success in his current home city, Washington DC.
As Zenbi's popularity and fan base grew, he accepted a highly-coveted residency at Eden Nightclub - where he conceived the acclaimed Good&Beautiful Party - a roof-top event held the 3rd Friday of each month (http://www.edendc.com)
. Good&Beautiful became a stepping stone for Zenbi to continue to refine his craft - playing alongside talented DJs, Producers, and Vocalists including Saeed Younan, Robert Manos, Hutchy (Thievery Corporation), Sydney Blu, Uner, Anthony Attalla, and Dr. Kucho!
In May of 2011, Zenbi proudly accepted a residency at Washington DC's most prestigious venue, LIMA LOUNGE, voted by Club Planet as the #17 club in the USA and #1 in the DC area. For this new endeavor, Zenbi has teamed with long-time resident and global superstar Saeed Younan and up-and-coming DJ duo RNS to launch TEKA, a new weekly Friday night concept that will showcase the internationally-acclaimed artists currently signed on Zenbi Recordings and Younan Music.
As the owner and label manager of Zenbi Recordings, Zenbi is focused on producing, signing, and distributing tech- and tribal-house music that satisfies one requirement - "our sounds will make people dance." Artists signed to the Zenbi Recordings roster include Wally Lopez, Saeed Younan, Uner, Anthony Attalla, John Creamer, Stephane K, Dr. Kucho, Ron Costa, Sideburn & Redondo, and many more to come.
Aside from DJing, producing, and managing Zenbi Recordings, Chris ("Zenbi") Porter is the Chief Executive Officer of the one of the US's market-leading information technology training companies - Training Camp (http://www.trainingcamp.com)
