Revival + Third Eye Records & HillTop presents Shpongle Live
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 colors an infinite expanding bubble, filled with a bizarre, strange world of dripping hallucinatory wallpaper, a garden of earthly delights, Welcome to Shpongleland! A place of well being, and reflective surfaces, morphing like an Anacondas skin and shimmering like a million color changing squid, at fifty fathoms, truly unfathomable like separating water from its wetness, the Ineffable Mysteries unweave. Shpongle 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 flutist 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'.
These days he is just as likely to be entrancing crowds around the globe with a throbbingly epic live set as he is to be dribbling ambient delectations in the Hallucinogen Soundlabs in the West Country. He is co-director of Twisted Records with Simon Holton, ex-label manager of Dragonfly Records. Simon Posford aka Hallucinogen, a pioneer of electronic music and founder of the psy-trance scene. With the release of his first album, "Twisted", which reached Number 27 on the French album charts, a genre was born. There are many words to describe modern electronic music but none that come close to the wealth of emotion and experience that comes from listening to a Posford tune. Simon is the musical genius behind Shpongle and for this latest orgy of brain fluid, he gathered 4 other talented musicians, as well, of course, as Raja Ram-Druid of Psy.
This is the sound of summer, no holds barred psychedelic perfection, made for the dancefloor like only the big man can. With a career as long as psy-trance has history, Tristan has been a constant in the ever-changing outdoor festival scene for many years. Playing at some of the most important festivals across the globe, Tristan and his music have a massive following of dedicated fans who love his full-on journeys of deep gurgling psychedelia. Tristan’s innate sense of the dancefloor and full power psychedelic moments place him in a league of only the very highest caliber of the producer. Having collaborated with pretty much every other ‘big’ name in trance at some point and releasing 2 classic albums for the famed Twisted Records, Tristan has moved into a new arena, and is now fully onboard with the NANO Records family, who are currently blazing a trail through Psy-dom with their passionate approach to good times and good music!
