Craig Smith (6th Borough Project) / Si Finnegan (Tone Control) & Levi Love

I am delighted to invite all friends and jacks to this. Simon Finnegan proved to be my favourite DJ when I took him out to DJ with me in South Africa 2 years ago. The man's knowledge of music is scary. His mixing is flawless and its his ability to take people on a journey that sees him enjoy a huge reputation.
