I just like the passionate yet gentle element that Raj brings to the Shpongle table providing the music with a more complex dynamic. Quintessence is great from what I've listened to!

Ah hey RajaRam is awesome eh - from all that Quintessence stuff (Jim Morrison's favourite band) to commissioning exclusives and theming visionary albums and connecting scene with vibrant energy. Inspirational to follow passions and a beacon of living life full of wonder. It would totally be awesome to be in same space - great even reading all t liner notes and guiding visions behind albums too.

I read stuff by Kris Weston claiming that Alex Patterson and Youth do zero machine touching - I think this is true for RajaRam too? I guess it must be hard for big names if they didn't really make much of their music. Sure RajaRam flutes, clowns and creatively shapes projects - but for the Orb it might be that AlexP didn't really make much of what folk hear. I wonder how they sort out ownership/performance rights - perhaps just transfers to label owners.

I thought it was a bit mean of RajaRam to have a pop at SiP guitar playing but I really rate his contribution to scene with TiP records stuff - although having mix CDs out actually done by DJLucas seems odd - I guess RajaRam picked out tunes and then left him to it.
