Messenger of Dionysos · Mused by Apollo

In ancient times, Satyr was the horned and horny messenger of Eleusinian forest god Dionysos. He mesmerized the youth of nearby villages with the musical magic of his flute and made them dance till broad daylight. In our common present, the spirit of Satyr inhabits the body of a human boy. Searching for a new way to spread the vibe of the forest, Satyr switched to SL and CDJ instruments, which fit the job quite nicely.

Samhain - 31 Oktober 2008



Samhain Psi Ritual - 31 Oktober 2008 - Amsterdam

the veil is lifted ... bal masque, de-masque

For as long as there has been Life under the Sun, the Sun's cycles have directed the course of Life. People have been celebrating the spokes in this wheel of Life ever since... It's a matter of spacetime: Spring up, Fall down, to the rhythm of the Hoop.

The Hoop is Round. The cycle of Life is completed once more during Sundown on this special moment in Time and Space when the Moon has no face and the concentrated Seed of Life turns to the Earth's nutritious, murky, dark womb to regenerate. Tranceforming the black earth to bloom in all colours on Belthane.

The ancient Celts started their new year with dark moon on this turning point in time. They called it SAMHAIN. Summer's end. The Aztec's Day of the Dead. The start of the dark half of the Hoop. Now mostly known as Halloween after the church baptised it All-Saints, or All Halo's Eve one thousand years ago.

In this dark, moonless night the veil is lifted between this material world and the Otherworld, allowing spirits, aliens, elves, fairies and other supernatural entities to pass between the worlds and socialize with humans.

freakuently unanswered questions


? what is Satyr

! in ancient times, Satyr roamed the Eleusinian forests as the horned and horny messenger of Dionysos - the god of ritual intoxication. He mesmerized the youth of nearby villages with the musical magic of his flute, and made them dance till broad daylight.

? where is Satyr

! in our recent past, Satyr reincarnated in the concrete jungle of Amsterdam as a DJ. At age ten, he recorded his first mix, displaying his love for early hip hop and electro, and soon his tapes were in high demand. After the Second Summer Of Love, he got turned on by new dimensions of synthetic sound and ventured into the realms of acid-house, techno and trance music.

? does he still play flute

! the Panflute has become an artefact in captivity, held safe and sound in the archeological archive of the Vatican. Yet, ever since the early 1990s, up and until our common present, Satyr became increasingly skilled as a player of the SL & CDJ instruments, spinning various styles of eclectronica and edm alike, embracing a wide range of the bpm spectrum with remarkable sparkle.

Difficult to pigeonhole yet sharply focused on and specialized in ambidelic chillout, psytrance, tech trance, uptech and several kinds of steps; entertaining events for 50 to 50.000 people, by serving his spicy melange of clean cuts and dirty grooves, mixing it down and grinding it up from raw to smooth.

A few memorable events ecstasized by Satyr:
Amsterdam Dance Event (NL), Atmosphere (Berlin / D), Ballonnenfeest (NL), Burning Man (USA), Carnival (Varginha / Brazil), Club A (Sao Paulo / Brazil), Dance Valley (NL), Love & Magic (Oslo / Norway), Metsafestiwaal (Finland), Pi Club (Berlin / D), Q-Base (D), Senseblender fest (B), Universo Paralello (Bahia / Brazil), VooV Experience (D), and many more in Belgium, Brazil, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Greece, Lithuania, Norway, Portugal, Slovakia, USA & all over The Netherlands.*
