Afternoon pop pickers. Well, we've had a brilliant week. We landed a guest slot on Fresh Radio UK with Dave Reeves last night. Thanks to Dave and everyone that listened in.
I've named this mix Australia..... because I'm going to Australia for a holiday on Monday. It's a little bit unfair really but I didn't mix it, Dave did. We had a little party at Dave's house last night so huge thanks to Dave and Claire for the booze and food.
We've got loads of things happening this year......
It's not our usual thing but it's nice to have a change every now and then. We usually play house/tech house but when I heard some of these techno tracks, I had to buy them. Toolroom Records released 'Rhythm Distrikt 03' as a 20 track set. I didn't listen to them before I mixed them, I was just playing them through really. It reminded me of early Josh Wink and Carl Cox. I should of mixed it at 130bpm. lol !!! There's some nice tracks here, well worth buying them. I had a laugh mixing this, I've been bouncing around for the last hour. I might mix it again properly now I know some of the tracks.
I secretly recorded the set that I played at Nono8 for House Division. Dave... The other D'Kota Brother, God bless him has been suffering with a twisted arse for a good couple of days. His legs don't work and he's struggling to stand. He left me on my own to drop a D'Kota set. It was a quiet night to be honest but I really enjoyed myself !!! It's only the second time sine 1998 that i've played without my wing man. Everything was turned up to 11. Not 10..... !!!! Full Power ;-) Some of the mixing is a bit woofle... due to beer, lol. Nevertheless, I enjoyed it :-) Full respect to Barlow, he rocked it..... Crank up the bass and play it loud ... Happy Days !!!!
Merry Christmas everyone. We hope you all have a fabulous new year. All the best for 2013. Come and see us play live at Superclub in Derby on New Years Eve along side Drumsound and Bassline Smith, Micky Slim, Rowly Cooper, Birdsy, Major Look and many more. Sharing the Christmas love, The D'Kota Brothers. For more infomation, come and find us on Facebook. www.facebook.com/dkotabros
Well it's good to see house-Mixes back up and running again ;-) I know it's been offline for a little while now. That's why you haven't seen anything new from us for a while. Anyway, we're back with a storming set for you to download and enjoy. We've got a fabulous gig lined up for New Years Eve in Derby. It's going to be the biggest thing that Derby has seen for a while.

We've had a brilliant month over here at D'Kota Towers. We've had two guest appearances on a couple of radio stations and managed to prop up the No.1 slot here on House-Mixes. We've just spent this morning running through some killer tracks for our next gig on Saturday @ Saddlers, Derby. Here's another bad ass set for you to download and enjoy. Come and find us on Facebook 'dkotabros'. Check yer bad self !!!
What started out being a steady weekend has turned into a bit of a messy one. Brilliant time though. Big up to Westie and Barlow for rockin' it at 20:20 on Friday night. John Paul Sean from Real City Radio has been in touch. He's asked us to whip up a set for his radio show (Funkylicious) on the 31st of August, winner !! Tonight, we'll be rockin' the 12 to 2am slot at Saddlers in Derby. Gonna be a huge night, not to be missed. Enjoy, Nickyboy xx
We've been having a laugh this morning with some new tunes. I personally hadn't heard any of them before we produced this mix. Nevertheless, it was good fun. There's a couple of mistakes in there but to be honest, it just adds atmosphere, lol. Anyway, I hope you enjoy it. Nickyboy, The D'Kota Brothers.
If you live in the UK, you'll know the weather has been absolutely crap. IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE SUMMER ALREADY !!!!! Hey Ho.... There's nothing like a cheeky afternoon Vodka to get you in the mood for a spell on the mixer. We've been looking forward to mixing this set for a long time. Let's hope the Sun eventually finds it's way to England. Our next gig,Caposhi, is on June 2nd at Hacketts Bar, Belper. There's some stonkin' tunes in this set, I hope you all enjoy it. XX Bang Bang !!!
We are hosting a disco house night on the 2nd of June at Hacketts, Belper. It is not our usual thing but we fancied throwing a free party for our mates. We have been having a blast with these disco tracks to get a bit of practice in. This is a bit of a taster of stuff we will be playing on the night. So stick up your mirrorball, dust off the Fro and lets party Caposhi style !! Dave D'Kota xxx
It is always awesome playing The Sunlounge in Derby. Everybody there turns up because they love house music. It is one of the only clubs that lets you turn everything up to 11 and smash the shit out of the sound system. This set was recorded on the fly and was originally 3 hour long but I have had to edit it a litlle to upload it on House Mixes. I've got it down to 2 hours now. James Ward was warming up and he dropped a phenominal set. Proper hands in there style. Then we layed down this set. Birdsy and Matt Capone of Bigroom Drama finished the night off. Looking through the crowd, loads of our Facebook friends were there, Awesome. Huge thanks to The Sunlounge, Big Room Drama, Birdsy, Matt Capone, James Ward and all of our Facebook followers that turned up. We have loads on the year. Starting with The Crib on the 27th of April. We are DJ'ing with House Proud sound system. Barlow, Danny M and Westie. Then its my birthday at Hacketts in Belper. We are having a full on disco with Westie and Barlow. Fancy dress, pimp daddy styley, lol. It will be HUGE !!!!!! Until then, Download and enjoy this set. We had a total blast at The Sunlounge. Cannot wait to play there again. Keep on truckin, happy days. Nickyboy xxx
SUP WE YER !!!! It's Nickyboy and Dave here. We have been trying to record a jingle for our monthly residency on Real City Radio but we are having a giggling fit. Its not happening, lol. We are gearing up for playing at The Sunlounge tonight with Big Room Drama and James Ward. If you are in Derby tonight, make sure you pop in. Its gonna be a huge night !!!! We dropped this set to try out some new tracks. Happy Days. Live long and keep on fist pumping. XX bang bang
This is a live set that we recorded at The Masqurade Ball at Nono8 in Derby last Friday night. What a fabulous night. Gilly got the place rockin while we were slurping the Champangne. Loads of people went dressed to impress wearing masks and all that. We rocked up wearing V for Vendetta masks, lol. There were fire eaters and Burlesque dancers entertaining the crowd. Brilliant, A top night out. We have put some of the photos from the night on our Facebook book page. Go and have a look :) Our next gig is with Big Room Drama (Matt Capone and Birdsy) at The Sunlounge in Derby on the 18th of February. We are really looking forward to playing back at The Sunlounge. The atmosphere there is always bangin. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did. Cheers, Nickyboy, The DKota Brothers. xx
Hi everyone. It is dave here from The DKota Brothers. I have just whipped up a little Sunday Session mix for my Facebook friends to download. I have been sat with Nickyboy all morning sorting out some Absolute Bangers for our gig next Friday the 27th of Jan at The Crib in Ripley. Hope you like this mix. I&amp;amp;#39;m looking for a bit of feedback on the mix so please leave a comment. Cheers everyone. Dave xxxx
First of all... HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone. Last night I had Danny and Barlow round. Armed with a load of Carlsberg Export and a bottle of Russian Standard Vodka, they hit the mixer to lay down this set. After a couple of technical issues (drunkeness) they zoned in and got on the case. I was determined to get in on the act... I donned my life support hat and within seconds, managed to cock it up !!! We are all playing live on the 27th of January at The Crib. Paul West, Danny M, Barlow, Dave DKota and me... Nickyboy. What a fabulous night.... although I am suffering this morning.... Remember the 27th of January, The Crib, Ripley.
Now then !!!! Its Nickyboy here from The DKota Brothers. We have had a brilliant year and we have met loadsof new friends. Thanks for all your support. You have been amazing. We have one more gig this year at Hacketts on Boxing day. Until then, Merry Christmas and all the best for 2012. Looking forward to seeing you all soon. These are a few of my favourite tunes of 2011. Download and enjoy :) Nickyboy xx

Oi Oi !!! I managed to wake up drunk this morning after a night out with some top friends. Not only that, but my neck is knackered. Proper stiff. I feel like I have been in a train wreck, lol. So...... the only cure is more booze and a session with some dirty house tracks. Don't forget that we are taking the roof off Hacketts in Belper on the 12th of November with our good mate, Superstar DJ, Chris Barlow.
