Shpongle – Are You Shpongled? (1998)

Shpongle’s debut album is a heady trip through pulsing electronic beats and samples. Whilst not as “far out” or as rich in its palette of colours as some of the later Shpongle offerings (this is a band that has really has gone all-out in some cases), there is something of a trippy and mesmerising quality in the more beat-focussed songs. It almost sounds binaural in some places, and with a good set on your head, the answer to the question, Are You Shpongled?, will almost definitely be a yes by the end of this album.

If you’ve never heard Shpongle before check out “Divine Moments Of Truth” from this album.
