    Jesus, Kingsblend420... How hard is it to look up Shpongle on the internet?
    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    ok ok, after thinking about this for a while I def support Shpongle for 09, i mean there better some big names theres too Underworld, The Chemical Brothers, Basement Jaxx etc... but Shpongle would be a very awesome late night set.

    I'm still working on a decent FLAC discography. there's one out there, but some of the songs are missing pieces. that one I just posted is vbr mp3, I have it, it sounds decent.

    soak it in.

    totally shpongled! i too am surprised that there doesn't seem to be too many people here who know who they are...if you don't you owe it to yourself to check them out

    i have had to replace my copy of tales of the inexpressible at least 2 times because it seems to grow legs and disappear with some regularity...ah well, while it's a pain in the ass, it's nice to spread the word about awesome artists!

    thank you!

    fuck.

    I just made a chems/skazi/prodigy vs. shpongle vs. hallucinogen mix.
    I will try and find the time to re-create and record it soon.

    Trying to get to know them. After reading this thread/watching the videos I'm hooked! I'm trying to get with the program and figure out port forwarding so I can download your torrent.

    I think the proper term is "Dj set afterparty" hour long set or something. They've done this a couple times according to my husband.

    I am going to write a personal letter to paul tollett begging him to book shpongle for next year. they're absolutely my favorite EDM artist. I think they belong in the proverbial hall of fame.
    I also think they are the sonic manifestation of the feeling I get from being on the polo fields. this inexplicable, lucid, beautiful, malleable, textured, warm, comfortable state of being. coachella makes me shpongled, so bring shpongle to coachella!

    this is some dude's review of their first album. a little bloated and prosaic at times, but obviously heartfelt.


    By Russell Brooks "iq-9" (North Wales, PA)

    As a discriminating electronicasseur for over fifteen years, I was, prior to discovering Shpongle, under the impression that I had completely saturated my technolust with brilliance from the likes of Ozric Tentacles, Eat Static, Juno Reactor, FSOL, Crystal Method, Delerium, Faithless, Dirty Vegas, Balligomingo, Underworld, Orbital, Richard James, and the list goes on. Simon Posford, cosmological originator of the Shpongle universe, has dual-handedly provided me with unequivocal evidence that there is a vast macrocosm teeming with life beyond today's musical event horizon. Being new to his genius, I currently only own the two Shpongle masterstrokes, and absolutely can not wait to own every work he has ever put to digitized media. The musical omnipotence demonstrated on these CDs has rekindled my interest in the whole genre of uber-creative, beat-driven, goa, world, trancetronic, psyonic, progressive, ambient, intelligent, quasi-synthetic blend of otherworldly cerebral massage, if there is such a thing - true listener's music.

    The lush production value alone is worth the trip. It is clear that Simon takes great care in the consummately transcendent sonic engineering on his projects. An audiophile friend, and fellow 500+ CD-owner, who enlightened me to Shpongle, put it best, "This is the best production I've ever heard." Simon's endeavors in inventive panning, gating, digital delay, pitch-shifting, harmonization, and sonic layering are nothing less than phenomenal. I can not get enough. I notice new and subtle nuances every time I listen.

    It is beyond refreshing to hear someone scatter the electronic song formula to the wind, and dream up his own from the deepest marrow of his being. All but nonexistent is the conventional throb of the quarter-note kick drum, as Simon explores the more moving and compelling polyrhythms of 6/8, 7/4, 5/4, 6/4, 7/8 and more, but makes it so immediately intimate and palatable, that the odd meter is undetectable. The man has raised the bar to heights as yet unreachable by any other artist. Raja Ram's ethereal flutations swirl Simon's troposhperic textures into a perfect natural balance like a vaporous, ancient Valdivian rain forest. The sounds that emanate from these CD's are breathtaking. From the deepest of the sub-bass, to the lucid mid-layers, to the bristling highs, the entire audio spectrum is populated with living, breathing, ever-changing forms, oozing, sliding, and flowing amongst each other in a dance of eternity.

    I don't remember being this inspired by a musical work since that first epiphany as teenager fifteen years ago, when I first felt the musical spinal shivers during a serious headphone listen of the highest-production music of the time - that preeminent moment when you realized, "Music moves me."

    Simon, may you live a long and fruitful life, so you may continue to bring the world this astounding, beautiful, and fulfilling music. Don't ever stop.

    Fan for life,
    -russ
