Now I bought Are you Shpongled? A lot calmer, and haven’t heard it enough (gotta get new earphones for my iPod, so I can listen to it while going to and back from school), but sounds quite good till now
Am listening to Shpongle a lot more now, with Nothing lasts (compared to TOI) and now even more with Are you…, also listen to TOI more… had to get a little used to it , Of course Hallucinogen is still a part of the artists I listen to daily.
Yep, I actually really like Are You Shpongled too, but I am still over-excited about getting my hands on any track from Hallucinogen I don’t have yet. But I am happy I got to twisted recs thru buying the Lone Deranger, and now I love all of their artists, that I know till now (still miss a few). Still gotta check out Ott’s stuff, but I’ll wait a little.
DMT, Shpongle Spores… awesome, and as I get to listen properly to the rest, I bet I’ll love those tracks too.
Am very excited about getting my hands on the twisted DVD, especially ‘cause of the unreleased ‘Shabby Trance’ and LSD Video :D
Played them daily for a long, long time, then weekly and eventually monthly. Now I consider them, along with the Hallucinogen albums, like vintage wine and only play them on special occasions, in special places or on special substances. I remember playing Are you Shpongled on my minidisc player while hiking up Mount Sinai in Egypt as dawn was breaking and it was a very special moment. 8)
Since the first Shpongle track I heard (from TIP records “Infinite Excurstions” picked up in Cisco Techno in Shibuya, Tokyo back in 1996), I’ll listen to a Shpongle track (or full album) at least 3 times a month. When I first get a new Shpongle CD I endanger it by nearly burning a hole through it with the laser by listening to it a good 3 to 4 times a day for the first week.
The first listening is special though… the right mindset must be achieved first.
I’m scared I will play Ineffable Mysteries ‘to death’ but, since I got it I cannot be bothered with any other music, I do hope this is a passing phase as I really love The Egg and I feel a bit sly listening to other music all the time.
I reckon I listen to something on Twisteds label every day, mostly Younger Brother, often Shpongle and sometimes both, but not at the same time, that might not be so good.
I listen to shpongle/YB/OTT/Hallucinogen/Dub Trees/ Mystery of the yeti/ Infinity project Just about every day. Mostly shpongle. It never gets old to me, Never fails to send chills down my spine. Its perfect music to me in every way.
I used to listen to Shpongle every single day but I found it started to lose some of it’s shpongley charm once I knew most of the tracks inside out.
I try to keep it to once a week, max., now and I can appreciate it all a lot more.
I end up listening to shpongle at work almost every single day. Even on days when I don’t fit in shpongle, I always get in something by twisted. I dont think I can ever tired of the music… listened to them all countless times, and each time is just as amazing as the first time I heard it.
