Phono Ghosts
Warm Pad, Sharp Stab

Full of cavernous, almost dubby beats and chunky analogue synths, electronic musician Phono Ghosts presents his fourth 'collection of cassette tape memories'. Listening to it feels a little like striding round an Atari game.  'Warm Pad, Sharp Stab' is a must-have for fans of downtempo electronica, 80s synth pads, or the Stranger Things Soundtrack.

Phono Ghosts
Photons In Fashion

So what Blackpool’s Phono Ghosts does is sample some tapes, run them through an audio workstation on his computer, then chop them up and reassemble them to form new shapes. The resulting tracks that make up Photons In Fashion are a hypnagogic re-rendering of ‘80s synth sounds. As in - Vaporwave. That said, the way that this set of ‘wave jams layers up its vocals is a tad more psychedelic than your Macintosh Pluses and your James Ferraro’s.

Neil Scrivin
Geek Upmanship

Records that are remastered are always fun. Whether you've heard the original or not, they're always worth a listen because they're obviously worth a remaster. If you know nothing about Neil Scrivin and Geek Unmanship expect an oddly satisfying mix of digital guitars and somewhat jazzy tones. Available on cassette tape and only in a transparent turquoise case. Released on Fonolith.

Phono Ghosts
Solar Dream Reel

Apparently Phono Ghosts aka Neil Scrivin aka Meatbingo (Skam) crafts his music by trawling charity shop cassettes for hidden goodness, or even hidden badness: it’s all going to be cut and spliced, chopped and screwed anyway. The double vinyl release Solar Dream Reel has a strange and groovy vibe: as the project name suggests, you can feel the spirits of the old music pushing through from the other side of the mix. On Fonolith.

Meatbingo
The Error of My WAVs

ALERT! ALERT! This is not Meatraffle. This is rather, an entirely different meat gambling proposition, Meatbingo. Ridiculous electronic-funk that has every much the sense of humour it's title, The Error of My WAVs would suggest. Contains a truly improbably amount of funk, probably to do with the fact it has bass guitar on it.

Neil Scrivin
Twenty Years On Ben Nevis

Neil Scrivin’s Twenty Years On Ben Nevis is a lovely suite of fuzzy electronics themed around a book about life in a Ben Nevis observatory. Scrivin created and digitally released this record in 2007, and this remastered tape release (in a fetching ‘snow storm’ plastic cassette) is the first time it has been available physically. On Fonolith.
