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.

Throwback Thunderday - 44% On The Drops



Throwback Thunderday - 44% On The Drops

A tribute to Trancending, the (former) weekly psytrance gathering, at Korsakoff, the (former) alternative music club under the Amsterdamp, born in last millennium's late 80s. In addition to serving their traditional blend of rock, metal, goth, drum-n-bass, industrial, ebm, techno, wave, electro and grunge, they hosted the local psychedelic trance hangout, every Thunderday night.

Today feels like a good day to re-cerebralate
with one of my mixes, recorded then and there:

44% On The Drops *

freshly squeezed and served
a stiff drop of liquid tunes

If you must label this music with a certain soopafreakadiscodelic tag, try psytrance, full on funky foreststyle ... or don't and simply drop in at the deep end. Blessed be with a cup of namastea, or rather ...

2015 / 8 / 08 - #808Day

Roland TR-808 Rhythm Composer

Without this little box our divine dance around the Sun wouldn't just look or sound differently today, it would exist as a totally different world all together. Of course, with any little piece of history missing from our common past, the world would appear different just as much -maybe more or less- but that seems beside the point. This particular one and a few other little boxes from that renowned Japanese music machine manufacturer helped shape the human world over the past 30+ years more than other little boxes have. Well ... they did shape (the sound of) mine and I do like to consider myself a human, every now and when, 'tween time and space, ergo: cheers to an alltime favorite drum machine, the Roland TR808!



Charanjit Singh - Synthesizing
Ten Ragas to a Disco Beat (1982)

A perfect example from the early eighties (clearly ahead of its time, in retrocoustics) sporting both TR808 and its little sibling TB303 in action - synthesized by Charanjit Singh who recently passed away.

War No More - VII





_____________________________________

WAR NO MORE - VII: Drop Acid, Not Bombs

Drop acid, not bombs - not so much a piece of advise for any reader in particular or humanity in general, rather a heartfelt option given to consider by those individuals of our tribe deemed mature enough to make those infamous life-or-death-decisions, one out of countless other options to consider by those who give the order and those who follow the order to engage and execute fellow surface dwellers with the distant act of flipping a switch. In fact, a cross-cultural and transgenerational rite of passage for our global tribe as a whole seems in order. Of course, not without ubiquitous application of new product stickers, bearing words like:

SHAMANIC ADVISORY
EXPLICIT RE-IMPRINTING

If sharp sticks, knives, guns, bombs, drones and independently targeting particle beam phalanxes would solve problems, we would live in a world without problems as of yesterday, the latest. Modern derivatives of primitive behavior, repeated today, merely add to proven redundancy. Yet, it does not just take an acidophile to choose peace over war. And extended on another hand, a solid solution need not necessarily come in the form of dropping acid. Nevertheless, considering the following might provide some initial mental support:

choose peace or perish
it doesn't take a hippy
to share love and light


º

More War No More to follow
for as long as we choose to become
divided, opposed and prodded like cattle.

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.*
