There you have it. I know just as there are creative DJ’s who follow FMF, we’ve got some Design Heads in the house. Don’t think that I’m not tempted to enter one in either. What’s even better is that you get some cool Staple Design gear and Vans if you win. Not too shabby for the Summer. Keep Diggin’
