DJ Denise is no stranger to electronic music. Since her meteoric rise in the San Francisco underground scene in the late ’90s under the guise DJ D, Denise has played countless events from Miami to Hawaii and everywhere in between, spreading her unique energy and style. Her nonchalant fader flicks and mixer tricks combined with effortless beat matching skills captivate her trainspotting fans.
Between 2006-2013, Denise launched her music production career while concurrently running her record label, Mizumo Music. The label released over 180 EPs from local & international artists while her original songs & remixes were released on labels based out of Europe, Australia, North & South America and South Africa.
In 2013, Denise stepped back from the label and music production to focus on developing her career as a healthcare professional. But in January 2020, just prior to the pandemic,Denise could no longer ignore her creative side and dusted off her studio computer. This decision proved to be fruitful as she grabbed the attention of DJ Dan’s record label, InStereo Recordings. She now has multiple releases on this powerhouse with more in the pipeline and has ongoing collaborations with fellow InStereo artists divaDanielle, The Incredible Melting Man, Tony Covarrubias and Callback Funk.
When she’s not DJing or tinkering in the studio, you can find Denise working as an ER Nurse in Oakland, California. It is evident that her mission in life is to save lives, both on and off the dance floor.
