Can't wait to ask OTT to his face tonight why he thinks it's ok to use hallucinogens name at festivals and about his involvement or lack there of " producing " Shpongle albums.

I really respect Ott, for him saying he wasn't a fan of alcohol and general healthy living vibes. He has a great ear for melody and is generous with his time for fans. We all have feet of clay and everyone on stage is no different fundamentally than the rest of the people in the room. I'd like to think that everyone can do creative things and that together the best art humans will make, perpetually exists in the future, in our dreams. Peace out, d.

Maybe a slight change in the line up name would be more appropriate then.
"Hallucinogen In Dub by OTT" perhaps 😁
btw, you (Simon) is credited under the section "OTT is grateful for the existence of.." in his new "Little book of awesome"

I hope you will have things cleared between you, and perhaps collaborate more in the future

Lol thanks for the support, but best not to get involved. I love Ott, and he made his best music on Twisted imo, but it did piss me off that according to both his agent and the promoter at Earthcore he has been pushing to perform alone as Hallucinogen in Dub, even after agreeing that he wouldn't l Iike it if i did a few remixes of his tunes and started to perform as Ott in Glitch. It's just a little more Insensitive than he needs to be.

are you referring to how he has been billed for earthcore?

the promotor spiro is notorious for this kind of thing. he loves booking artists who have multiple projects to save on airfares.

Also everyone should be interested in keeping Simon leveled.....if he thinks he's commanding his own secret army he might drop music altogether and start plotting to take over the world lol

buy his records or don't. go to his shows or don't. wear his t-shirts or don't. that's what it boils down to.

"all you read and wear or see and hear on the tv is a product waiting for your fatty dirty dollar so shut up and buy buy buy my new record."

I support the idea but not the act lol best to let these things be handled by the powers that control the tunes and not try to stick our noses in what does not involve us even though we may be rubbed the wrong way by things we may have heard. best not to add more fan filled drama to the mix by starting a war amongst amazingly talented musicians who without them both there is a lot of great tunes including Simon's that may have never reached the ears of all of us.

I totally agree with you. I hate drama but love opinions and views. One love to all stay SHPONGLED !!!

Look, I am stating my views completely detached from any blame game. I don't care who said what, who started, etc. What I am saying is that it's not our battle. If you were Ott you'd probably find it highly misplaced to have strangers coming up to you meddling in private affairs. But that is my not so humble opinion about these things. I simply have an issue with all sorts of drama per se. You do your thing. But since you threw it out here, I think I am allowed to disagree.

I do know from a little birdy hat Si was not thrilled about it.

Guys....breathe and try to keep the drama to a minimum....nobody here knows anyone involved in this personally enough to pass any judgement. This is at the end a personal matter. Let the people directly involved handle that and stay respectful. My five cents.

there was an interview with Ott where he said he only compiled Are You Shpongled? because Simon didn't have the ability to do so at the time

Mark lad I totally agree. I wish it was never like this at all.

And neither Ott nor Simon claim Ott produces on Shpongle albums, that was fans misunderstanding and assumptions mostly. His involvement got blown out of proportion just because he had credits in some liner notes....

I'm not even interested in sticking up for Ott but man, this hate for him is a bit off putting.
