Dizzee Rascal plays Arctic Monkeys remix at Oxegen
Dizzee Rascal played a remix of his Arctic Monkeys collaboration during a raucous set at Oxegen Festival this afternoon (July 8).

The rapper kicked up a storm in the Green Room with a stirring set which sent the crowd into a frenzy as he performed the track 'Temptation' before going on to perform a series of songs from his new album 'Maths & English' including 'Sirens', 'Bubbles', 'World Outside' and forthcoming single 'Pussy'ole (Old Skool).

The star recently joined Arctic Monkeys onstage at Glastonbury to team up for their own version of 'Temptation' entitled 'Tempation Greets You Like Your Naughty Friend' but sound problems cut out his voice.

There were no such problems today though as Dizzee rapped over Alex Turner's sampled vocals with ease.

Later in the show Dizzee and his MC spotted an inflatable SpongeBob SquarePants in the audience and started off a call and response battle with the crowd.

Referring to the rainy conditions outside Dizzee said: "We know its wet and we know its cold but we don't care about none of that shit. We are gonna get you moving I promise."

The rapper was also showered with items onstage including a hat bearing an Irish flag which his MC picked up and stuck on his head.
