Codex VI. Electronica VI begins with ethereal wails of hospitality before melting into a rhythmic jam session. Shpongle are quick to introduce their trademarked duality of electronic music dub, trance, ambient, etc. and organic instrumentalvocal world music. It's this companionship that has always attributed the genre's strength, but right from the get-go, track Remember the Future seems to peacock its sounds rather than truly explore itself. And this is an issue that is sadly being foreshadowed for the rest of the album. There are few, if any, definitive moments on the album that feel like Shp. Your Rating. Overview

Great release. Very trance; what else would we expect? The bass sounds deep. The pressing is quiet. The songs are very nice.

Got this today from amazon 43 euros and free shipping.

Scored a blue version from a record store for 40 bucks.

melody of you
My copy from Amazon came in today and it is blue. Make sure you buy from Amazon. Not turntable lab selling through Amazon to have any chance!

i also got mine from Amazon US.They can‘t guarantee that you get a blue one, as they are not visible marked for distibutors...so it‘s a game of luck.In worst case you get another black one - no risk no (blue) fun for collectors.

I got a blue set from amazon. There was no special listing. Screw the scalpers, it's still available there for under $40.

Simple fellow
Any updates on quantity? Seems like there's more than 500 out there. Other than that this is a great album and everyone I've played it for loves it.

Think this is available on Juno's website. Says coloured vinyl and I got it shipped to the states for $57.. they still have more

Confirmed green copies from juno website. Still need more words

Got my blue version today. I still have to ask myself why but there you go.

some bull shit right here. why the hell would simon do this?

my investigations lead to the same result: the blue one is for the US market.Where to get? Well....that‘s the question...

fire dancer
EDIT: The Blue version, well it 'seems' to be official pressing for the US but I cannot confirm it.Here are the press runs I've found out so far. If anyone knows any different please let us know.Black = 2000Blue = 500 (this was 'kind of confirmed by Posford via instagram) Green = 500I'm NOT happy with Twisted though. To release other versions on the sly is a bit much.

Where have you seen that Blue = 2000 and Black = 2000? Thanks!

Road.to sliver
Apparently confirmed by Posford himself. It's a legit release. And from what he says, not necessarily a US release.https://www.discogs.com/release/11252613-Codex-VI/history#latest

It could be legit, Twisted did this with the recent vinyl re-release of Are You Sphongled, the first pressing 'ltd edition' in Oct was in black vinyl, then second 'td edition' was released in Nov was in the same shade of green vinyl as above. Surely they should release the green version as the first release, not for a repress a month later? I'm irritated I wish I hadnt rushed to buy codex on vinyl now, id rather have waited for this green version. Plus it took them a month to send it out! Amazing LP though in any event, and sounds so much better on vinyl. My favourite Shpongle LP now.

from what I can tell the clear vinyl version of the Are You Shpongled repress is more of a blueish clear, not green like this Codex VI version.

Freaktastic sampladelica! Simon Posford strikes back with yet another enthralling installment of embodied synaesthetic psychemusick. All of the Shpongle lps are super, but the previous album "Museum of Consciousness" was more dancey, even a bit housey at moments, whereas this most reminds me of "Nothing Lasts" in that it is more trippy, complex and jungly (as in a forest, not dnb). Perhaps the slightly darker tinge to this album reflects the times in which we are living? The cover art, design, pressing and general production are nothing less than superb. ~*~

Really not happy with Twisted... We should have known about this.

Thanks... yes I got one of those. :)Psilowave are great to deal with, buy with confidence.

Not happy with this. There was no word from twisted... Disgusting. I'm a fan, not a reseller and I feel really let down... Awful behaviour, not a happy bunny.

this seems incredibly sketchy to me. I view it as a bootleg.

Can you possibly post a screenshot of the reference code on the box? I'd love to see it on the official release. Thanks!

This isn't a bootleg... I have got the actual factory packaging and these are legit. They were sent out in quantities of 6 per box. Reference code on the box reads : TWSLP48GREEN / TWISTED RECORDS. I hope this helps.

i get this message after buying:Don't worry this is definitely an official release from Twisted records UK main distribution network SRD that twisted have used for all their previous releases Pressed specifically in that colour variant for the distributor.

I don't see this offered anywhere on their bandcamp site or any info about it on their Facebook, anyone know where this one came from? I also see a green vinyl one on eBay.

saw this one on ( limited to 500 copies only - already sold out according to the page) >>> https://slyvinyl.com/genres/psychedelic/shpongle-codex-vi-limited-edition-black-vinyl-3xlp

Mine came from Amazon. Nothing showed that it was the blue version though. I just assumed it'd be the black version.

Is this real? scoured the internet and found nothing of the sort. nothing on SRD about its release

I thought the same thing! I keep a close eye on Shpongle's social pages for this exact reason so I was bummed when I missed out. But then the site added a few more copies and I managed to grab one. There's still some available now!

whaaaat, where did you hear that? I'm gonna be bummed if it's shipping from the US because I'm paying quite a bit for shipping on this green version

How come there is no Info at all from official Site, Label or Artist? Shpongle/Twsited report about everything through social media etc.seems weird.

Hi mate, this is an official release from Twisted records official UK distribution network. Pressed specifically in that colour variant for the distributor. - Cheers

is this an official release or bootleg? no info at all from Artist or Label

https://www.psilowave.com/product/codex-vi-2here you find the green version, i think its real

I can also confirm that there is a translucent blue version of this triple vinyl.

This is real... just received a picture of the record. Its fluorescent green with a green splatter.

I will speak about the record which i received today,I am sound engineer and i can say the mastering and the pressof this record is a Masterpiece.!!!!

I'd say at least this album is much much better than my expectations, because starting from the 3rd album, with a little exception of the 4th, the music is definitely boring and repeats itself. This album also has saveral fails, but in general the experience is nice. More dub is definitely a huge pro!

Has anyone else noticed a grey splattering through the vinyl, only slight on disks 1 + 3 but prominent on disk 2?

hmmm. it seems to have faded since opening.. strange... Loving the album.

Wow - just wow. 4th listen and suddenly I'm appreciating it more. 3 listens on the FLAC download, and now the Vinyl. The album soundscapes and sound placement is broad, deep, and spaced. There is so much interest in this - the layers of sound specifically are so amazingly balanced! The production quality shines on the vinyl revealing a much more studio sounding sound - it's Shpongle no doubt, but with a gloss of quality that until Museum of the Consciousness is only apparent in comparison. That sameness initially under whelmed, felt like it was a re-hash almost, but on continued listening, you can start to appreciate the efforts that Simon Posford and Raja Ram have put into this release. There's so much new Shpongle to discover in the album - but underlined by a Shpongle fans will know and love.

Just opened my copy of this... The packaging is amazing. The spine must be 10mm in width. The sound from the first needle drop is very gratifying and sounds utterly sublime.

After finally receiving my copy I am happy to say that this is one heck of a pressing.Love the artwork, it's a double gatefold, with die-cuts on the inside.Each record is in a printed sleeve with tiny specks of gloss overlay on a few letters.All three vinyls are plane and sounding beautifully, Codex VI has a very balanced mix.As for the music: Simon does it once again, this guy can't go wrong imho.A little more dub, tons of flutes and weird sounding electronics, lush soundscapes and hypnotic vocals, this is what you want to hear when listening to Shpongle.

Another gem from out of space and time! Simon and Raja have done it again.

I'm so disappointed that the bonus track is not included on the CD.

crazy mashine
The bonus track is the best track of the album. The vinyl sounds amazing!

Awesometastic! This is how a good album sounds perfect. I will quote one person on this occasion. "Skazi can pack his guitar, Infected M. their stupid microphones and leave the party. It's time to dance and wonder again."

I wonder why people often feel the need to celebrate one thing by putting down another, especially in a scene that claims to be after positive experiences.

This album was so worth the wait! I love that it sounds so different from other albums but yet still has that classic, Shpongle vibe. I love the heavy dose of Raj on the flute and absolutely dug Simon's jams on the guitar and piano. Are We There Yet, Strange Planet, and the bonus track A Series of Heads are among my favorites...upbeat, trancey, and full of psychedelic sound magic. But, my absolute favorite track and quite possibly my new favorite Shpongle tune is I Woke Up As A Shlummutz. Wow, wow, wow!! I first heard this tune at The Global Eclipse Gathering in Oregon...Simon and Raj played an incredible set immediately following the most magical experience of my life, a total solar eclipse. They played this tune maybe 2 or 3 songs into their set....and it blew me away! When the song started, my heart exploded with love and gratitude and as the melody kicked in I broke into tears of joy. I couldn't wait to hear this track and I'm now convinced...this song is a fucking masterpiece! Bravo, Simon and Raj.

No, still haven't received my album yet...but couldn't resist listening to the digital download!

Have you received your cd yet? I ordered the vinyl copy and it's taking all of my discipline to not listen to the album until I can hold it.

This album definitely lives up to the Shpongle name. I loved Museum of Consciousness but something about it made it not quite as epic as other Shpongle albums. Codex VI brings back that epic vibe and feels like the best aspects of every other album combined. The ambiance of AYS, the world influence of TOTI, the digital glitchyness of NLBNIL, the alien atmosphere of IMFS, the trancyness of MOC. It may be the album with the most variation of styles and yet it's still very cohesive. It has a fair amount of dub influence which is pretty cool because there's not many dubby Shpongle tracks. Like all Shpogle albums, it takes several listens to fully appreciate and understand the new direction. So don't judge it too quickly or have too many expectations on how it should sound. I'm glad they're using different time signatures again (3/8, 5/8, 7/8) instead of just 4/4 like the last album. Also, this just might be the most flute heavy album they've ever made which I love. It makes it feel like more of a collaboration. This album sounds different every time you listen to it. It reveals it's self in new ways and uncovers hidden sounds you didn't initially notice. I can't help but think the people writting negative reviews are hearing a different album. This album exceeded my expectations and my expectations were already high. I could maybe see this not being someone's taste but there is no doubt that this album was laboured over and each moment has been miticoulously thought out. Its extremely deep, complex, layered and innovative. Couldn't be happier with this release.

This is among the most nuanced and complex of Shpongle’s albums, with a huge range of styles, character and complete and utter insanity. Codex 6 never reaches the mystical states of some of their earlier albums, nor their levels of tonal consistency, but that’s not a bad thing because nothing else they’ve ever done has been this broad or wild, or experimental for that matter. It really feels as if SP and RR are moving in a new direction, whilst still being entirely authentic to the Shpongle sound. Love it.

This time Shpongle does not disappoint. Actually, in a long time it seems that Shpongle are stretching themselves. Very few cheesy things here, much less than in “Ineffable Mysteries From Shpongleland”. The sound is complex and at times brutal. Vocals are used brilliantly on this album and sound in place unlike in some other albums where they sounded like that re-reused cheap samples from 20 dollar CD. The production quality is on par with Shpongle’s “Museum Of Consciousness”, yet the “sound events per second” measure is much higher. The MoC album was at times sounding like Philip Glass as the development of the tune was soooo sloooow. Now meet the Shpongle we love since their first album, and much to their first album, but with production quality and experience of 2017!

I was afraid that this will end up like this. Previous album warned us that Shpongle is falling in the save track of self plagiarism. Too bad they lost their audacity and innovative approach and exchanged it for save musical clichees. The album just keeps repeating old tested tunes lacking any interesting/innovative thought whatsoever. Shpongle became Hans Zimmer of psybient. And this is quite symptomatic for the whole psy-scene.

If you want the bonus track "A Series Of Heads" just order the CD from Bandcamp and you will be given link to download the album before it ships to you. The bonus track will be included in the download. I am not sure if the track is on the CD or if you also get the track by just purchasing the digital album. You WILL want that track as it is fast paced and base driven Shpongle magic. Link to Shpongle Bandcamp page here; https://shponglemusic.bandcamp.com/album/codex-vi

Shpongle has revisited one of their best records from the past with this release. This album has a very similar flow to "Tales of the Inexpressible". The vocal and conversation elements, Raja on the pipes much much more ; ), the guitar influences, even the track order somewhat matches the flow of the "Tales" album. If you did not notice this at first, take another listen to "Tales" and then replay this new record again and you will start to see the comparison. They even used the same font text on the track listing displayed on back of cover art that was used for the "Tales" album. The fact that there is way more Raja on flute than the last 2 albums makes this much more enjoyable in my opinion. This is now my 3rd favorite Shpongle album after the first 2 albums dropped over 16 years ago. I was not that impressed with the last album, and maybe a lot of fans thought that way too. Maybe that is why Simon and Raja decided to go back to their roots for some inspiration for Codex VI. I'm glad they did : )

Snake Rocking
Shpongle have come out with another masterpiece, just like every other of their albums. With Codex VI, they have embraced new styles such as psychedelic dub, while keeping the original Shpongle sound along with it. When I started playing the album and began hearing the fat bass usually found in psydub, I was very pleasantly surprised and smiled widely.

After my first listen, only one track stood out and it was really nice! A Series Of Heads is the gem of this release.
