Waves of the soft spring wind
Waves of the soft spring wind
Love's flood tide is rising full
The moon of love is rising full

Sea of beauty
The moon of love is rising full
Love's flood tide

Some laugh, some weep, some dance for joy
Some laugh, some weep, some dance for joy
Some laugh, some weep, some dance for joy
Some laugh, some weep, some dance for joy

My mind craves nectar day and night
Like a blue lotus floating on the sea of love

Lingering in ashantic realms
Lingering in the akashic realms
Lingering in, lingering in the realms

Blue lotus floats
Blue lotus floats
Floating, floating
Floating, floating
Floating, floating

Some laugh, some weep, some dance for joy
Some laugh, some weep, some dance for joy
Some laugh, some weep, some dance for joy
Some laugh, some weep, some dance for joy

Some laugh, some weep, some dance for joy
Some laugh, some weep, some dance for joy

My mind craves nectar day and night

I think Bill should be proud that he is the reason that my teenage kids can use Shpongle as one of their musical benchmarks. Not that they always use it as a positive benchmark (as in "What the he** is this, Shpongle??), but I am happy that Bill has exposed them to such range that they are familiar with so many styles. As a kid I never was exposed to the range that Bill provides here on RP. 
that transition from Zola Blood's Two heart, so so smooth.

A Psybient classic

Beautiful vocal by the talented Michele Adamson

She was featured in many, many, Psytrance and Chill Ambient tracks through out the years. A queen!
 
Thought it was Zoe Johnston at first. Shpongle often grates on me, but this is ethereal.
What did we do to piss you off?
Fantastic band live! Be sure to see their 2013 concert on YT, called
Live In London On 25 October, 2013

Reminds me of the diva dance in the Fifth Element…
This music excites my shpongle.
Alle trænger til at blive shponglet en gang imellem. Translate from Danish: Everyone needs to be shpongled once in a while.
Shpongle. Supreme, sonically splendid and Psybient.


Shpongled

Er no, Shpongle aren't psy trance. Definitely psychedelic, but not pay trance. 

The 2 guys (Simon Posford & Raja Ram) that are Shpongle do both also produce pay trance and before that goa trance  
 
"Pay" trance as opposed to the free stuff?

I've rated this track an 8, and damn if that bass doesn't hit hard even on my workplace earbuds....gonna have to bump this on the big system on my way home today. 


 
Somewhere along the line I've bumped this to a 9....still haven't bumped it on the big system though I have a feeling something will come loose when I do....Long Live RP!!

Pink Floyd direct or exacerbates influences big times ..., still OK.
Love the synths ... Shpongle is credited on synth work on Alan Parson's Return to Tunguska on A Valid Path (2004). I thought it sounded familiar!
:) makes me shiver every time!   Luv from Canada eh!
{#Frustrated}Kindergarten!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is going on my playlist.

Beautiful! 
Deserves a large pair of sub-woofers

"Fabulously segued" is Bill's middle name.

Perfect! Surreal! I was imagining hearing this, just moments ago, while riding my bike home up the hill in the bright, gently falling snow.

you be in the minority lol move{#Music} on! lol 
Thanks for turning me onto Shpongle, Bill. It's my favorite work out music at the gym and on long night time motorway drives.
This made me cross-reference on Wikipedia...
Check out Shpongle on "Return to Tunguska" by Alan Parsons, on A Valid Path. Track includes David Gilmour on guitar. Nice. 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Valid_Path 

sade with elements of new age with a kind of lyrical imagery like incubus's aqueous transmission nice sound 8
I need to get these guys into my collection.
Came in near the end of this, but I liked what I heard. Thanks Bill for expanding our universe! I bought Museum of Consciousness after hearing The Epiphany of Mrs Kugla on RP. Whoa - good stuff....
bumping{#Sunny} to 9
The song title made me fearfully think of Oliver Shanti. Turns out to be some decent music, nonetheless.

soundtrack for my dream of Donna Summer echoe-funkin' the blissful awareness out of me
can't you hear? Dakinis singing in the realms of nothingness. Pure magic....
I love Shpongle, saw them ones on a trance festival in hungary. One of the best gigs I ever saw.

Are you sure this isn't voodoo techno?

 
"Memoir Trance" or "Ambient Polka" maybe?  Nah, probably not.
new music
Nice groove, whatever it's called.
Does absolutely nothing for me, I'm afraid. This is music to shop in Ikea by.

Cool stuff, regardless, IMO.

I first heard of Shpongle driving out to Burning Man one year with two guys who only listened to psy trance. Psy trance? What's Psy Trance?
"Shpongle plays psy trance."  So we listened to a LOT of it, and I loved it all, still do. Awesome headphone at work music.  Thank you RP!

Seven and a half minutes of blissful awareness for only 99-cents! Just click on the link to purchase through Radio Paradise, c'mon you know you want to!
It reminds me of Pink Floyd trying to be very difficult and important. Doesn't catch me at all.

Never heard of Shpongle. I think, I like it.


Vangelis is who you're looking for. Very synth-y "atmospheric" music. If you dig it, they've made plenty.

Just brought my brand new baby home from the hospital and put on some RP. This is what was playing. Never heard it before but I love it. 
Shpongle! The Yiddish board game sensation!

Yes but the segue was seamless and this is in much the same vibe.
Ethereal. Love the atmosphere.
That was lovely.  Thanks!

Loves me some Shpongle, I does.
