Dongle and Mongle are the only two other words rhyming with Shpongle…a strange hybrid of electronic manipulation and shamanic midgets with frozen digits squeezing the envelope and crawling through the doors of perception, find a new pair of dice…extra numbers and colours an infinite expanding bubble, filled with a bizzarre, strange world of dripping hallucinatory wallpaper, a garden of earthly delights…Shpongleland…a place of well being, and reflective surfaces, morphing like an Anaconda’s skin and shimmering like a million colour changing squid, at fifty fathoms.. truly unfathomable like separating water from it’s wetness, the Ineffable Mysteries unweave.

Younger Brother
Younger Brother formed in 2005 when Benji Vaughan (Prometheus and The Zap) and Simon Posford (Shpongle and Hallucinogen) were asked to write a track for a charity called Survival International.

The charity raises money for indigenous people around the world and they asked Simon and Benji to write an electronica track inspired by a Columbian tribe called The Kogi for a CD they were putting together to raise money. The Kogi call themselves the Elder Brother and those in western civilisation the Younger Brothers, hence the partnership between the two artists became known as Younger Brother.


“Boombaba” a.k.a Tarun is the moniker of Mumbai based DJ/producer Tarun Shahani who started producing electronic music after being inspired by meeting Delhi based duo Midival Punditz. He started producing music on early sequencers like acid and fruity loops and realized that he lacked the principles of audio production having never worked in a studio.

Though he was happy with the sounds he was creating and the arrangements, he missed the polished mixing that he had heard In the music of his favourite artists. He did a stint at SAE Chennai where his real obsession with audio started. Tarun is now a renowned DJ, Music Producer and Sound Designer, having played at some of the most popular pubs in Mumbai and Chennai, as well as at Sunburn Goa.
