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.

Bom Voyage - Queensday 2010

Bom Voyage - Queensday 2010, Amsterdam

One day every year ..

.. a little bicycle passage in the heart of Amsterdam, hidden from view by its edificial surrounding along the first yards of Singel canal, transformed completely to host a colorful gathering of people, dancing under the Sun. For more than ten years, this bridge at De Droogbak has served as the location for one of Amsterdam's most reknowned free outdoorparties on Queensday, the 30th of April.

Ever since the early days, many global artists and local heroes from the psytrance scene have been lined up to add a note to the score and the future will hear many more. At the start of the millennium, the original crew that initiated this partycular event, passed the blazing orange torch to Bom Voyage.

Since then, the following live acts and dj's have performed at De Droogbak: Ace Ventura, Andromeda, Astragalus, Back to Mars, Bart Cruz & Catana, Bassid, ccL, Danyel, Dica, D-Nox, DJ Doc, Dogo, Dr.Vinni, Ekanta, Fluoelf, Frans & Mickey, Free King Jochie, Jocid, John Phantasm, Kuma, Leila, Lunatic, Mad Contrabender, Maga, Mekkanikka, Mick Chaos, Odo, Patch Bay, Poli, Psyderek, Ronald & Cosmic Steven, Sacid, Satyr, Seizure, Shaktycat, Shawnodese, Taj Mahal, Tameesh, Tintal, Tristan, Troy, XP Voodoo, Zen Mechanics, Zen and of course the Bom Voyage All Stars: Immuun, Simplex & Sander.

In 2004, the party moved from its original location to continue on a square across the water, a suitable spot to catch as much sunrays as possible and unleash all absorbed energy. The event is organised in cooperation with Centipede Productions and made possible with: support from a small group of loyal sponsors, the magic hat (a true philantropic miracle), all the helping hands of many friends, and all of the party people joining us from all directions of the wind, who come down to start their season at our annual outdoorparty, once again: on a square at De Droogbak.

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.*
