VORTEX Open Source 7-11 Dec-2017
“I didn’t just hear music. It seemed as if I were part of the music”
When the music starts to flow through your body. your chest shakes, the
drums beats get in between your ribs like a heartbeat, the bass goes up
your spine & fizzles your brain & all you can do is dance or spin in a circle
or just scream because you know that however this music makes you feel,
it’s exactly right ☮ ONE Dance Floor ☮ ONE Energy ☮ ONE Love ☮
