FRIDAY NIGHT AT Pals Bar & Brasserie in Croydon. An idolatrous battle cry curls through the venue. "You doan wanna war wid whoo? War wid mweee!" MC D Double E lurches towards the crowd as he hits the mic. They surge back towards him smashing a low glass border in front of the DJ booth. Only minutes before office workers performed boozy slow dances around this nondescript subruban pub to R&B chart hits. Now it's all change. The energy in the room has turned. Things are getting grime-y.
