South West Four is a multi-genre, inner city music festival which takes place in the UK. This year’s event took place over a span of two days, with DJs including Sasha, Erick Morillo, Pete Tong, Laidback Luke, John Digweed, Joris Voorn, Paul Oakenfold, Judge Jules, Gareth Emery, Giuseppe Ottaviani, Jerome Isma-Ae, Mark Knight, Carl  Cox, and many more playing music for the thousands of people in attendance. Armin van Buuren headlined the event on the first day, with Fatboy Slim headlining the second. The lineups for the huge music festivals are getting seriously stacked, for every genre of dance music too. However, the one mix that really caught my attention was the back2back set between Marco V and Sander van Doorn. These two men have previously worked together on some tracks, and their styles really complement each other, especially since Sander has claimed Marco V to be one of the producers he has looked up to. This works out even better on the decks because of their chemistry. My first impression of the tracklist wasn’t very promising, but as most mixes go, it’s the flow of the set that is often the most important. I then proceeded to watch this sweet video of the event, which completely blew me away. The first thing I have to mention is the separate camera angles. This is a great concept which allows viewers to gain a comprehensive experience of the recorded event. Seeing the reactions between the crowd and the DJs is the next best thing to the interaction between Marco and Sander. There are few gems in the mix like Positive Rapture and track 4 (ID needed), and I also liked how Marco played a lot of older tracks like Automanual, Red Blue Purple, and SvD’s remix of Direct Dizko. I really do hope I get to witness a set like this in person someday, because shit would be nuts! The mp3 recording isn’t perfect quality, but you want to make sure you watch the video because it’s fucking wicked.
