So what's next for Simon? Hallucinogen 3 isn't happening (as confirmed by him), Younger Brother isn't happening, and it's too early for another Shpongle.
However, I doubt he can stay out of the studio for too long. I sense another project on the way.

Re YB & Shpongle needing to sound like what we're used to: I don't necessarily think Si follows this approach. Part of the reason why his whole catalogue sounds as good as ever.
Look at Vaccine for example. Nothing like Gravity which in turn is nothing like Flock of Bleeps. Also, I personally feel Museums is a departure from the sound on Ineffable (much less ethnic elements for a start).
All superb in their own right but very different.
Maybe it's time for a death metal project hehe

I seriously hope Simon starts a new project. I keep reading interviews where he says "Everyone expects Shpongle to sound like Shpongle and YB to sound like YB and Halucinogen to sound like that" so I kinda wonder what kind of stuff he's explore without so much expectation.

Also if you're right, is it a solo project or a group?

Been long enough Benj. The time has come for Prometheus to rise once again (or whatever incarnation you choose)

Benji, awesome news mate.
I loved your Even Tundra. It took me a few months to come around, but it ended up being my favourite album of 2013. Dare I say even beating MoC.
Any idea yet if it will be another solo release or Prometheus?

Not Posford related, but has anybody heard anything on the new Ott?
That's currently my most anticipated release.

I can't recall where I saw it, but I believe he's said that he and Raja are currently working on their next album.
