Learn how to use the "skip button".   ...problem solved!   ...then you can spare us from your  drivel!   A LOT of RP listeners think that they are GREAT!

Quintessence !
Living in the UK, I have followed Shpongle and Simon Posfords other collaborations from the 90s until now. This track is far from the best of which was from their first album . For me “Divine Moments of Truth” and the following track “…and the day turned to night” are the standouts. Their following albums get more cultural influences as they go, and with Raja Ram (Quintessence) playing most of those unique instruments,, it just gets better and better.
my fav track on the 2nd Album “A new Way to say hooray” then the whole of “Nothing Lasts but Nothing is Lost” (3rd album). And then” Nothing is Something Worth Doing” on the 4th. Would love to here these tracks on RP more! 🙏🏽


No.

You can NEVER have too much Shpongle!!   Thanx RP!

Shpongle here? That is what I love Radio Paradise!!!!
tangerine dream
Yeah man...........I see it too.
Makes me think of Frank Klepacki... 
The spores must have reached me. Not 10 minutes ago, I called up Shpongle to run in a socials video.... 

I've been Shpongled! 
I miss Younger Brother…
I just don't get why RP plays Shpongle (and Bonobo) so much.  Am I the only one that finds Shpongle to be a total bore?!?
I remember when my wife use to shpongle me, a while back, right after the dinosaurs roamed the earth. I think it's time to move on.
Some nice greenery by the side and just chill to this track😎

For the un-Shpongled yet, it helps...

Obviously not Shpongled yet...

If you are addressing RP, then no, there is nothing you can do. However, if you are addressing your computer/device, then I am fairly sure the answer is yes.

Well, as if you didn't have enough respondents - I'll just add to it.  I read your comment and had to laugh because Bill has played several different Sphongle songs in the last few days.  Every time one is played I have to stop and see who it is and, of course, it's Sphongle and it's AWESOME!  
Really? REALLY?  They had the opportunity to name this piece "Shpongle Shpores" and didn't? What was that conversation like? "Nah, mate, don't want anyone to think  that we're weirdos!"

Forget these guys.

You seem to be in the minority here, as the ratings will confirm. Bill is nice enough to provide a "skip" button for you though, so maybe next time you can just quietly use it instead of boring us with your negativity.

I must be in some kind of altered state.  I had just gotten out of bed, still a little bit drowsy, turned on RP in the living room, and, while I was getting coffee from the kitchen heard this and was pulled back in.  I clicked on the rating, gave it an 8, and thought, as I often do, that my rating an RP song an 8 was my cue to click over to amazon and buy the disc.  Arriving at the amazon page, I was a little surprised when it told me that I had bought it yesterday!  Upon checking, I realized that it wasn't from hearing this track, but Vapour Rumours which Bill played yesterday, and which I had also rated 8.  I have bought many CDs on the strength of one track, and been disappointed in some, but I have a good feeling about this one!  Bill has six songs from this disc on the playlist!  That's a good sign!

Hey kids - Taylor Swift? Shpongle?
They're a floor shine and  a dessert topping! 
More Shpongle please!

 I think your taste sucks

1998?! Wow, didn't realize these guys were shpongling since then. Fun stuff.

As someone with pretty thorough experience with music, altered states, and combinations of the two, I can say with conviction that I've never encountered music that requires an altered state for appreciation.  Shpongle included.
You gotta be in the right mood for this... but if you're in the mood, then this is hypnotic gold.  I like it.
Feels like a Spacey Oddyssey song
Shpongle good!

Shpongles's awesome!  Congratulations the__jake:  there can only be one.
