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.

Dag Bart

Dag Lieve Bart - Zoals altijd, het was mij een zwaar genoegen

In Memory Of Bart Debosscher

a ray of silence
brittly tears a cloud in half
thunder fills the sky

My dear friend Bart Debosscher was reported missing six days ago, on September 6, 2011. A thorough search was initiated; old and new media were employed; as many pairs of eyes, ears and hemispheres as possible were mobilized, in order to find him. The page you are reading now, featured his description and other details, until yesterday, September the 11th of 2011, the search was complete.

Bart is no longer missing.
Bart has gone.

Whilst going through a pile of party pictures, a particular one called out from somewhere down below. This photo of Bart depicting one of our favorite activities, is now catching ashes on my altar. It is merely a picture, but it clearly shows Bart, dancing in my heart.

The partyscene has lost one of its most dedicated technicians, many have lost a friend, some have lost their kin and one has lost her other half. My thoughts are with all of you.

Bart, my trusty right-hand man on wheels during the Unity years, faithful guardian of sound and light on many a festive occasion, but more than most of all, true friend for over a decade: here's looking at you, kerel!

let's dance

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.*
