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.

War No More - II

- This Land Is Mine by Nina Paley -


"I am not only a pacifist but a militant pacifist. I am willing to fight for peace. Nothing will end war unless the people themselves refuse to go to war." - Albert Einstein

These days, the human world seems to balance itself like a blindfolded acrobat walking a tight rope spanning an abyss. Peace will calmly carry humanity across the chasm, whilst war will inevitably plunge humanity into the dark depths descending directly beneath its tread.

Every step we take we must keep peace in mind, every move we make we must embrace peace with our hearts, as an infinitesimal act of forsaking our commitment to peace could plummet us into oblivion, accelerating towards self-destruction. However, destroying ourselves will not destroy our home, Planet Earth. Therefore, instead of losing our mind on the idea of Saving The Planet, let us start by focusing on Saving Our Self.

"It's time to stop pointing fingers
and figure out the point."
- Bro Nevo, 2012

This land is not mine. This land is not ours. We do not own land. If anything, the land owns us, as humanity represents a mere part of Earth, one of numerous parts of a whole.

The very existence of nations actually creates nationalism. The drawing of lines on a map, the division of the One Tribe into a wide variety of people, enables opposition in order to eternalize the ancient Roman motto: divide et impera - divide and rule.

One - not just one of us but one of all
- must ask oneself the following:
who would stand to gain,
or rather: Cui Bono?

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.*
