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.

Excelsior Ave - The Summer of 2008

California Sunshine, a wonderful bed to wake up in - I am starting to realize and recognize its wave, length and width. Getting accustomed to new surroundings, fine-tuning the local sense of sunrise. Yet today I am not waking up, I am coming home, while my love is still miles and miles behind, up and out there, here in my arms. Again, a new acquaintance connects the self with the aura of spational acoustics, transducing new sights, new taste, new touch, new sounds - hear, now.

Shared Light like tiny droplets of color from heaven, underneath the ever blue white green. Today a state of trance like never reached before, near previous experiences but this time taming the sacral dragon (Don't be afraid). The clarity of synchronicity still remains half an hour later, one hour later, until one-and-a-half after crossing the faithful half-world-wide-bridge, landing in this bed, coming home, mountain-high.

That much closer to the Sun during a seasonal recurrence spiced by Saturn; easy to get burned - the more reason to stay cool - stronger flow of ki. A beast unleashed, its powers caught, absorbed by counter-swing. Peace of mind, focus becomes me, pulling new horizons in. New life, new love and Abakus - here, now.

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.*
