Their musical style combines eastern ethnic instruments and vocals with contemporarywestern synthesizer-based psychedelic music. When asked to describe Shpongle's music, Posford has responded that it is "like nothing you'veever heard before." Shpongle's first track, "Vapour Rumours", was released on TIP Records' Infinite Excursions compilation in 1996. Theirdebut album, Are You Shpongled?, was released in 1998 on Twisted Records. Posford is generally responsible for the synthesizers, studio work, and live instrumentation while Raja Ram contributes broad musical conceptsand flute arrangements. Raja Ram stated in an interview that "Shpongle" is an umbrella term for feeling positive and euphoric emotions.Shpongle's music is heavily influenced by psychedelic experiences and frequently makes use of sonic textures that approximate psychedelicstates as well as vocal samples relating to consciousness expansion, hallucinations, and altered states of awarenesss. The track, "DivineMoments of Truth," for example, contains a vocal sample of Raja Ram describing the effects of Dimethyltryptamine. « hide
