The Melting Pot 6-9-09 Featured Artist ***SHPONGLE***
Dongle and Mongle are the only two other words rhyming with 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 .....
After this years performance at the OZORA festival in August, comes a brand new show at the Roundhouse in London on October 30th 2009 for the worldwide launch of the spectacular new album from Shpongle 'Ineffable Mysteries from Shpongleland'. Copies will be available on the night...the first editions ever on the planet and 2 weeks before any shops or download sites, make sure you're there to get your copy ! Tickets are now on sale.
(TWSCD36) Shpongle 'Ineffable Mysteries from Shpongleland' coming....not so soon on Twisted.
(TWSDVD002) Shpongle 'Live at the Roundhouse 2008'.....coming slightly sooner on Twisted !Shpongle (pronounced /ˈʃpɒŋɡəl/) is a psychedelic downtempo or Psybient music project. The core members are Simon Posford (aka Hallucinogen) and Raja Ram (one third of The Infinity Project), but they often collaborate with other artists. Their sound has sampled eastern ethnic instruments and western contemporary synthesizer-based psychedelic music. Posford is responsible for the synth and studio work while Raja Ram contributes with flutearrangements.
The name "Shpongle" is not a dictionary recognized word; it is derived from a rumor that Raja Ram was asked at a party how he was feeling, to which he replied, "I feel... Shpongled".
Shpongle's first track, Vapour Rumours, was released on TIP Records' Infinite Excursionscompilation in 1996. Their debut album, Are You Shpongled?, was released 1998 onTwisted Records. Are You Shpongled? and Twisted Records' first downtempo compilation,...and the Day Turned to Night, were influential in the then-small psychedelic downtempo genre.
In January 2007, Twisted Records announced that a fourth Shpongle album was being recorded, to be released in early 2009. The current projected release date is mid November 2009. The album will be named "Ineffable Mysteries from Shpongleland" and will have the catalogue number TWSCD36.
