Shpongle's Museum of Consciousness Tour Is Ready For Take Off

06 February 2014 - - - The DJ List


Back in 1996, SIMON POSFORD and RAJA RAM combined forces to create the musical experience we now know as SHPONGLE (pronounced /ˈʃpɒŋɡəl/). The duo made their mark on the scene by weaving their downtempo psychedelic melodies with world music and are considered to be pioneers of the psytrance genre. And with a combined 80 years of music experience, it's easy to see why: RAJA RAM, one third of THE INFINITY PROJECT, is their flutist and cunning linguist while Simon, who also works under the pseudonyms HALLUCINOGEN and YOUNGER BROTHER, is in charge of programming, instrumentation and the overall production of SHPONGLE.

Starting next week, SHPONGLE will be taking their show on the road as they introduce the world to the mind warping visuals of the Shpongletron 3.0 at their Museum of Consciousness tour. The three month, cross country tour is based off their fifth studio album of the same name that was released last year on Twisted Records, SIMON POSFORD's record label. They'll be joined by electronic bass music pioneers the DESERT DWELLERS, made up of AMANI FRIEND and TREAVOR MOONTRIBE and the night will feature visuals from the Shpongletron as well as Zebbler. The tour takes off on February 12th in Boston and ends in Philadelphia in April.
