Shpongle (pronounced /ˈʃpɒŋɡəl/) is a psychedelic downtempo or Psybient music project. The members are Simon Posford (aka Hallucinogen) and Raja Ram (one third of The Infinity Project). Simon takes care of the production, instrumentation and programming, while Raja Ram is the flautist and Cunning Linguist. They DJ separately and together, Simon having just completed 52 shows in the USA touring with a visual extravaganza known as ‘The Shpongletron’.
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 hallucinatory 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 separating water from its wetness, the Ineffable Mysteries unweave.
