10" vinyl edition available now from Electronic Purification Records:
UK tape mangler Phono Ghosts (Fonolith, Skam Records) and US synthwave supremo Sferro (Rosso Corsa, Girlfriend Records) join forces for a new EP on Fonolith, following their 2017 collaboration ‘Court of the Twelve Trees’.
Featuring five new tracks and an exclusive remix by Odd Nosdam, ‘Alive in the Timeless Void’ is an expedition through uncharted waters and windswept wastes. Fusing Sferro's synthetic machine sheen with Phono Ghosts’ haunted cassette emanations, the results traverse rain-soaked atmospherics to chugging electro, culminating with the wide-screen vistas of Odd Nosdam’s remix.
Available on ‘ocean blue’ cassette tape and digital formats.
released January 26, 2018
Written and produced by Neil Scrivin and Eric Sferro.
Additional production and remix on track 6 by Odd Nosdam.

If you like mid-90s Warp/Skam records electronic wizardry, you will love this album. Neil Skrivin is a cassette-tape splicing genius, and has created an album of interplanetary electronic funk - with liquid drum and bass as a distant cousin. Tracks #1, #2, #5, and #8 are brighter tunes, while the rest are moodier soundtracks. To dive right onto the dancefloor, go to 2:30 in Cassential and let it ride. (Then go buy PG's first album, Chrome Position, which throws some BoC into the mix). Warpfan
