Shpongle Bernie Sanders April Fools Joke was the best… if only it was true
Sphongle played one of the sneakiest April Fool’s jokes last week which had Thump playing along nicely with a really funny piece of content.
Simon Posford (Sphongle) suggested that the Bernie Sander campaign had requested a piece of music from him.
But what if it was true?
What if Bernie Sanders really did want the psychedelic legend to create some campaign music for them?
Bernie Sanders could very well be a Shpongle fan if he commissioned them to produce a campaign track, proving that he is not about some mainstream Kaskade or any of the other commercial electronic music producers. LOLZ!!!
- By taking it to one of the electronic music scene’s pioneering and purist genres, he would prove that he wants that original psy as add-on theme music for his presidential campaign.
- If Bernie Sanders commissioned Shpongle it would raise a few eyebrows and questions as to who put Sanders onto psy and just how much of a hippie is the presidential hopeful really?
- He would either have some hardcore trancers on his team, or a group of expert researchers who’d leave no stone unturned.
- Or his influence over his campaign and its strategy would be in part thanks to his particular hippie tendencies and thus his psy trance taste in music.
Raja Ram and Simon Posford are pioneers in the psy trance movement, who to this day tour and make music that appeals to both fans of psychedelic and world music. They are loved, celebrated, supported, and their music is a main stay at psy trance festivals and dance floors all over the world.
If only it was real…
Even though the Sanders track commission is not real (much to the relief of the anti-government and anti-politics Shpongle fans) it’s still hilariously funny to picture Bernie dropping acid and seeing through his third eye.
Sanders is an internet meme superstar who has been dubbed “dank” by the meme generation along with the viral hashtag #FeelingTheBern; he is also the only seemingly sane American presidential candidate in the running.
