THE ORANGE SPECIES
Mixed by Denise aka DJ D
Recorded June 2001
Recorded live with vinyl on 2 Technics 1200s
The Orange Species was made during a time when there was no stopping hard house... even to this day it contains some of the highest quality hard house tracks ever made (in my humble opinion). Side A starts off dark and hypnotic, then moves into some serious ass-shaking beats! Side B starts off with a couple bass-heavy tracks tinted with bad ass vocals and works into some serious quality choonage. Take note of the mix from Track 5 into 6 - it is still one of my favorite mixes. An "Outa Space" remix is added on the end for sentimental value, as it is definitely an anthem of the time. You'll find The Orange Species enjoyable from start to finish... and start to finish... and start to finish... and start to finish...
The Orange Species also marks the transition period between my changing my DJ name from 'DJ D' to 'Denise.' The temporary moniker 'Denise aka DJ D' would last on flyers for about a year until it finally made its full switch to simply 'Denise.'
