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!

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.*
