I've been in love with most of his ventures for the better part of ten years. everything he touches is amazing. I'm a huge fan of the celtic cross and early shpongle area. he should be more appreciated I think. a lot of his stuff is well ahead of it's time and all of his material still stands up to this day. why no love watmm? especially you psychedelic lovers.

imo his stuff is beyond cheeseball and i'm not a fan of his crybaby attitude about piracy. :whistling:

 

 

i agree with the piracy part...

this is a nice proto Shpongle project he did called Infinity Project that sounds very similar (perhaps more stripped down) to 'Are you Shpongled'

I like how bent Shpongle get at times but the cheese does get overwhelming, and not in an endearing way

 

He is undoubtedly a technically brilliant producer though

there is nothing shameful about loving the first shpongle album. After that I think the drugs caught up with him - the flashes of brilliance became more intermittent, and the Mckenna fetishizing and world-music-pilfering more obnoxious.

 

but yeah, that first album will always be among my favorites, I suspect. So lush and deep and pleasant.

The first Shpongle album is a classic no matter how you slice it. Still sounds fresh. Second album actually made the world music influences work. I think Raja Ram might be behind most of the cheese and drugginess of Shpongle.

check out 'Infinity Project' as well, it's like a cuter more FSOL version of the first Shpongle album

 

in response to what Greg said, it's true his stuff does get into massively cheesy territory but he is unparalleled in certain production techniques. When it comes to using phasors, flangers and sweeping effects i don't think i've heard a producer do it better

Shpongle can be quite good, and he is undoubtedly a very talented producer.

 

But I wish he'd drop the lame horns and other cheesy elements. Also, I haven't heard any new "sounds" from him in quite some time... it's all a little too predicatable abd samey these days.
