Open Air Waves

Open Air has no boundaries. No set of rules or regulations. No race or religion. Only the progressive development of ideas toward a particular conclusion. This movement favors a generalized common goal. Fill the lungs of the physical and rise this thing of emotion, of true power, of self-actualization and of natural purity. House music is created to evoke emotion. It’s a language and when one understands this language, it speaks volumes to the secret places of ones soul. House music is what emotions sound like. Its a compass that directs you to the kind of pleasure human nature cannot do without. This is my intention. To bring people together. It allows us to experience the same emotions. People everywhere are the same in spirit and heart.
