an introduction...


Welcome to binglybongly.net, a home of positive, energising music of many genres.

binglybongly was established in 2001 to exploit the physical, emotional and mental benefits of positive, uplifting music. The original idea was to be a music compilation label, and we ended up staging events as well!

Now we provide music research, and programme positive, energising music for unique events and environments.

Since we began, the team has excelled at everything we've done, from a regular Sunday chillout at the Spitz in Spitalfields market, through hosting rooms at the Synergy Project, an all-night festival in London's largest indoor venue, seOne London, to compiling music collections and creating mixes to order for corporate events and point of sale environments.

We can provide the perfect audio backdrop at venues of all sizes, decorate interiors and provide sound, lighting and projections for corporate and community events, networking meetings, and private parties. We've also planned and built live stages at several London outdoor festivals.

binglybongly music improves your EQ


some music...     start/stop music...

In 2009 Mr Bongly discovered Electro Swing (a brilliant genre with a wide appeal) while working on a commission for a corporate client. Here are some mixes and live DJ sets which have resulted.
