Listening Center

David Mason's synth work is influenced by accidentally hearing subliminal music in television and visual media, as well as in found sound sources.

Belbury Poly and Spacedog
The Study Series 10: Message and Method

Phil just told me this is the last of the Ghost Box ‘Study Series’ 7”s. What will they do now? They’ll be at a loose end. “They’ll just have to bring some other records out I guess,” proffers Phil, “maybe start another series.” Then again he did say that this single was by ...view item »

Pye Corner Audio
Sleep Games

Here is a much-needed vinyl re-press of Pye Corner Audio's 2012 era opus on Ghost Box. This is a supremely eerie batch of warming nostalgia-synth from the self styled Head Technician.

The Advisory Circle
From Out Here

The Advisory Circle almost interlude style electronic music inspired by library records and the such.

Berlin’s ToiToiToi thinks of German culture and internationalism while he makes the music on Im Hag, his debut album for the Ghost Box label.

It seems that Jim Jupp’s long-running Belbury Poly project has managed to escape from the tangled maze of hauntology, and is pushing out into more unambiguously happy vintage territory!
