Sander van Doorn’s Identity radio show did not always follow the format it currently uses. It used to be just Sander on the decks for one solid hour playing  dark, twisted tunes. Sadly this is not the case anymore, which is why I often dig up these old sets of his. This week we are going way back, all the way to the very first episode of his radio show. In this mix we get a taste of some old school Sander productions, including tracks from his Purple Haze and Sam Sharp aliases. Sander’s excellent version of Armin’s Control Freak and the relatively unknown rework of Breathe show off Sander’s early remixing skills. In fact, the back to back play of Eden to Control Freak is pure bliss. In this set we also see many artists which Sander will feature quite frequently on Identity. New tracks by Marco V, Mojado, Mac Zimms, and Scott Mac always find their way onto Sander’s radio show. When SvD first broke out onto the scene around this time, his work had a personality to it that stood out in a rapidly growing scene. For a great look back at some of this uniqueness, check out this mix or any of the other earlier Identity mixes from 2006-2007.
