11.40pm Park up outside the club, just across the road from the MI5 headquarters (above). Queue behind a couple of girls in knee-length boots and a geezer in a cowboy hat. Uh-oh
12.35am Pounding house, twisting green lasers and lots of geezers asking if we're "Alright, mate?" We run into a builder called Steve who's here with his wife and son [above]. "It's my son Philip's 18th birthday today, so me and my wife brought him along to celebrate," he explains. "We are the raving family"
2.03am Podium overload, as the new mix of N-Joi's 'Anthem' prompts everyone to mislay their marbles. A feller next to us screams "Oi-oi, oi-oi" over and over and over again

"I've always liked the venue. It's got a real sweaty, ravey, South London feel. I also respect the way Conan [the promoter] has built the club up. He's gone from selling the Big Issue on the streets to buying the whole venue, just through sheer hard work. But the main thing is I always have a bloody good time. The crowd really spur you on, and you can feed off that energy."
