About Us

Who We Are

GetOpen Sessions was founded by Justin Hyppolite Jr. aka Deep Just (AQuaBeaT) and Michael A. Jackson, aka DJ MykBzsh (pronounced Mike-Bizzash). Seeded in Brooklyn but rooted in global friendship, these dancers, DJ's and producers tap into how music affects us on a heartfelt and spiritual level and inspire us to get up, get in touch, get out and GetOpen.
