About GetOpen Sessions
GetOpen Sessions is a free form facilitator of dance music, community building and wellness events. Seeded in Brooklyn but rooted in global fellowship, GetOpen Sessions is a theme based vehicle for artistic expression and cultural awareness; bringing the love, culture and energy of House music to communities in an open, inclusive, family friendly and socially conscious atmosphere.
The GetOpen Sessions Park Tour's mission is to bring the love, culture and energy of Dance Music Culture to communities in an open, socially conscious, family and community oriented outdoor environment by collaborating with local like minded artists, performers, community groups and events nationwide; bridging the gap between the global dance music community, performers, arts and cultural groups and the next generations of creatives. If House is a feeling, then the dance floor is the door.
Justin "Deep Just" Hyppolite, Jr
Event Production, Management, Logistics & Sound Design
DJ/Producer "DeepJust Aquabeat", founder of "GetOpen Sessions," is a veteran of the NYC house music scene with over 25 years behind the decks & even more on the dance floor.
The 1st born son of Haitian immigrants began experimenting immediately upon teaching himself how to mix. He would weave jazz, soul, psychedelic rock and world music together with the infectious grooves of Deep House, Techno & Ambient music. Today with that experimental openness refined, he plays a soulful blend of deep electronic and cultural rhythms with a dancer's sensibility. He's known for his technical approach, thoughtful selection & deep but fuel injected sets.
Deep Just's sets and productions are an extension of himself; an excursion into the roots and outer reaches of House music and sound but always grounded by the drum & the rhythm of the earth.
