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.

Sollemnitas Brumalis


bacchanal and dionysiac rites - taken from alexander's tomb


Sollemnitas Brumalis - Ritual Cerebralation of the Winter Solstice

Slightly paraphrasing the past, the Brumalia were the Bacchian festivities to celebrate the return of the Sun in ancient Roman times. These were a romanized continuation of the ancient Greek rites in honor of Dionysos, which took place around the time of the December or Southern Solstice, also known as the Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere.

How these festivities tranformed to become the cerebralation of Kris Kringle's birthday will not be discussed here and now; perhaps another place, another time. But whichever manmade metaphors we tend to mythicize, when the mind opens our eyes, we will find our annual celebrations are still revolving around this celestial event in our current times.

Breaking all of this down in simple terms, in present tense, or rather, bringing it in to here and now: the soundtrack of this year's Southern Solstice will be mixed at Siberië, this Saterday, the 21st of December - scroll down for more spacetime details.

The Final Trance:ndings



Korsakoff Amsterdam - until August 18 - The Final Trance:ndings

Yes. The Kors is closing. The end of an era is nigh.

For nearly 25 years Korsakoff has been the alt.underground.club under the Amsterdamp, offering a now-traditional-and-soon-legendary blend of rock, metal, goth, electro, drum-n-bass, industrial, ebm, techno, wave and grunge. On top of that, they have been hosting the local psychedelic trance hangout, every Thunderday night for the past 6ix years - Trancending.

But now -to cut it short- the place is sold, the deal is closed and so will be the doors of the Kors, soon. The countdown has started and every night will be a blastoff until the grand finale, Sunday August 18. Follow the links below for an online agenda and more.

Ozmali and I will touch down one more time to transform the concrete jungle into a sonic forest under the Moon, Sunday August 11. More details will be announced online once we got a line on 'em. Stay Tuned!

巳 - The Dawn of Spring

The Celestial Serpent uncurls and rises from the Eastern Seas

巳 - The Dawn of Spring, 2013

Emerging slowly after the annual hibernation underground,
with the Vernal Equinox in its wake, the Celestial Serpent
uncurls and rises from the Eastern Seas, aiming beyond
the Western horizon to fang the declining Dragon's tail.

And thus, casting the Shadow of 2012 in its ascending path
and thereby encompassing another circle of light and dark
inside our Universal Spiral, the Dawn of Spring is born
on the 6ixth Earthly Branch, under the Ophidian sign
of the Ouroboros, Dvapara rising.

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.*
