In case you missed the very exciting memo, superstar DJs Mark Ronson and A-Trak are teaming up for a special set for Virgin Media's Our House at this year's V Festival.

Mark Ronson and A-Trak will team up for a special DJ set for Virgin Media's Our House at this year's V Festival, 31st July 2015

It's such a big deal there's even a video to get everyone all excited about the set, with Mark and A-Trak chatting all about their journey to success in between clips of DJ decks and jumping crowds.

Uptown Funk producer Mark explained his excitement, saying: "A million people might be streaming it so it's a reason for us to really play the stuff we love."

Since his early days performing with "barely a crate of records" and a 15 person strong crowd, to DJing for the likes of Biggy and Jay Z, Mark has become renowned for his epic sets thanks to a unique mixture of funk and soul with some added rock 'n' roll.

Building the suspense, A-Trak suggests we should be expecting the unexpected when the pair get together, admitting: "If its got a beat, I'll play it, I don't care what the genre is." Ooh.

Mark kept things mysterious, saying: "We're going to take people on a musical journey. You want people banging the walls when they hear a track they love, that's the great thing about house parties."

Take a watch of the video and get ready to live-stream on Sunday 23rd August.
