Fabric is teeming, its air-conditioning units dripping with such persistence that it seems to be raining. A secret treat under London's streets, the venue is designed in such a way that it is difficult to find the exit. You find yourself stumbling into room upon room of never-ending beats. This intense atmosphere suits Chase and Status's set, which steers away from their hits and concentrates on the drum and bass that ignited their passion.

Light and lasers fill the expanse of Alexandra Palace, beams of blue and green pouring over the crowd like the northern lights after too much Red Bull. At midnight, three Swedish DJs explode on to the platform. The set is a mountain, flashing colours. Steve Angello, Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso look down upon their minions, who are gasping for a beat.

It's no secret that the success of MCs like Dizzee Rascal, Tinchy Stryder, Tinie Tempah et al has inspired record labels to frantically snatch up as many of these underground stars as possible, with Wretch 32 being the latest kid on the block to be tipped for the big time. Back in January, he landed a No 5 single with "Traktor", a pounding tune so wickedly addictive, Diddy insisted on performing it with the 26-year-old at his Last Train to Paris party earlier this year. Then, Ian Brown gave him his blessing by allowing him to use a sample of The Stone Roses' "Fools Gold" for his most recent single, "Unorthodox". Exciting times, then, for Jermaine Sinclair, especially for a guy who grew up on a Tottenham estate but can now stamp "wooer of rap moguls and rock legends" on his CV, and has shown he's got a lot more going for him than being another mix-tape rapper with a ghetto backstory. Musically, he infuses soul and a real sense of poetry into his observational lyrics, and on stage he's fun, energetic and chatty, leading the chant: "forget about violence, I rather be cool!"

If the BBC Trust is serious about wresting the young and ethnic minorities away from their existing radio choices and on to Radio 4, it should perhaps get in touch with Brits winner Tinie Tempah. On paper, he already sounds like the archetypal Radio 4 listener. "He was passionate about English and Shakespeare," enthused his school teacher. "He was the only person I knew who looked forward to National Poetry Day." Unfortunately for the Trust, the 22-year-old from Peckham who has risen to be Britain's foremost rapper seems entirely resistant to social engineering and loyal to Radio 1Xtra.
