TONIGHT! on The Melting Pot Shpongle a strange hybrid of electronic manipulation and shamanic midget

TONIGHT! on The Melting Pot Shpongle a strange hybrid of electronic manipulation and shamanic midgets with frozen digits squeezing the envelope and crawling through the doors of perception, find a new pair of dice, extra numbers and colours an infinite expanding bubble, filled with a bizzare, strange world of dripping halucinatory wallpaper, a garden of earthly delights. Shpongleland, a place of well being, and reflective surfaces, morphing like an Anacondas skin and shimmering like a million colour changing squid, at fifty fathoms.. truly unfathomable like seperating water from it's wetness, the Ineffable Mysteries unweave

Craig Burk

It's Craig. I used to host a Sunday evening show and we met one time at the studio.I am interested in how you layer the sounds. I found some of the CDs on your 2/10 playlist on Amazon but now have to assume you were layering tracks. Curious about your playlist. On 2/10, I tuned in at about 9:30 and was very impressed despite my hither-to strong reservations about much electronica. You created a really a nice mix that was not dragged down by a too-obvious 4/4 beat. (I can't handle too much 4/4 on floor.) Will send my email address to you via your name since KBOO may not be OK with my posting it here.

Where is the playlist for 2/10/09

Where is your playlist for tonight. The last 30 minutes or so were pretty good and countered my belief that the beat stuff can be pretty much "you get the point after about two minutes."

GSAF Music

You have been *totally* killing it for the last twenty minutes. Thank you for the music.

Kick ass Beats J

Lovin your show!!!! Thanks for being a voice for our community!!! Peace, Tluv

Melting Pot

Big ups from Nor Cal Tomato

Dynamic beats

I wanted to say I think you've got some pretty stellar jams being mixed and dropped on your show. I really enjoy when you blend different ethnic genre's, especially when the sitar is involved. Great stuff! Keep it coming.
