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.

Satyr Satellites: now with 23% more Aural Pleasure!
Four New Mixes Online As Of January 2012
Surf Right Up And Get On Down


The blogging of the new year continues on a frequency of festivity with a quadragram of new mixes, recorded on three cerebellations around the Winter Solstice of 2011. Huddle up, but please do not push, trod or prod, tase or pull a Pike - there is plenty enough somethings for everyone and you.

First up, the SPD surprise attack on K3. That night DJ.Azepam and I played some... well, something beyond our (un)usual melange of Chill Fout and electrosonic escapades, something more suitably labelled as ... Thrill Out, purrhaps? Anywave, we veered somewhere in between dubstep, nippongabba and freakbeats, or for the Dutchies amongst us: op die breakfiets, u weet toch. 'Evermind, just dig in.

Second on the menu comes a two plate course: Winter Solstice Smoke Signals - not as complicated a catch when fishing for style definitions as the previous mix, yet just as much a tag magnet. Taking off from a certain ambiescence, both parts of this mix move up the creek from groovy ambidelics to undulating drum-n-space and downtempo breakbeats. Quite the yummy entrée forrrr ...

... last course and third, the Solstice dessert, served and recorded 'round midnight on last year's special edition of Trancending. This is the midway part of the three hour Krazy Kris vs Odr vs Ozmali vs Satyr vs Whrikk 5x5 back2back pongping opening estafette set. Psychedelic forest trance - nuff said, bon apetit.

Okifenoki - enough verbosity, on with the tunes. Find the links to these mixes right below all these words & keep both your eyes and a third ear open for separate posts with tracklists and other mix details to follow in the near future. Namaskaramba!

Enter The Dragon



MMXII - Enter the Dragon

serpent in the sky
ride the wind black water wings
third eye of the storm


Is a good part of the human race entranced by a prolonged Fin de Siècle experience or are we actually headed for a certain Eschaton that has been reiterated and recombined in countless prophecies? Since the year 2000 passed without some sort of apocalyptic tribulation, mankind's yearning for change has only grown stronger, it seems. In 2012, whilst Nostradamus is having tea with the Mayas, a common sense of fear continues to be exploited, to forward agendas or simply gain riches. Focal point of conversation: how an aspect of Mesoamerican astronomy may outweigh the Y2K bug on a scale of global transformation.

Whether the Millennium Bug itself was a mere money-making hoax or indeed a lurking disaster, it clearly did not have enough momentum to move us beyond the brink of a global catastrophe and unite all of us in fear. Ironically, if Y2K would have unfolded as prophesized, its effects might have guarded humanity from being exposed to the barrage of End-of-Time-scenarios and other theories about the passing of the current Gregorian year, which have been flooding the airwaves since mankind crossed that infamous, self-made-up millennial border, roughly twelve years ago. The use and abuse of the internet in the aftermath of the Dotcomboom would never have exploded like it did and many a prophet would have reverted to obsolete old world media of the Television Age.

But here and now, the overadvertased year 2012 has finally arrived. Come December 21, will it be Armageddon on Earth or Galactic Renaissance, a Doomsday scenario come true or simply New Year's Day on an interstellar scale followed by business as usual the very next day, and if so, will we iterate another future of fear, waiting for change to come, or perhaps create one of hope and become the transformation itself? Let's ride the Dragon and find out, shall we?


Kung Hei Fat Choy ... and a Happy 2013!

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.*
