Sport met space as resident DJs took to the decks at Alpha

A fashionably dressed crowd turned out to pledge their allegiance to either The Force or The Dark Side at the Adidas Originals Star Wars Battle of the Beats party. Leading the teams in the electronic versus urban music battle was Mr Mr, aka Luke Skywalker, representing The Force team (featuring Charl Chaka, Raxon, Da:Funct and MC Swerte), who opened with a remix of the Star Wars theme to cheers from the crowd. Dany Neville, aka Darth Vader, headed The Dark Side team (featuring Rone Jaxx, Emtee, David Craig and MC Olly Wood), with some banging urban sounds. Though at times we couldn’t hear the MCs over the music, we loved Olly Wood on speeding down SZR. ‘But I never got fines to pay, ’cause I call my local brother from the RTA’. Wasta in the most unlikely of places.
