It's taken me almost a year to get this one finished but it's finally here; for all the ATC fans out there I present to you: Ghostbusters The Mixtape: Answer the Call.
Ghostbusters ATC gets too much hate, and along with it so does it's fans; who often get pushed aside and left behind when it comes time to share in the Ghostbusters fandom. Love it or hate it the impact this movie has had on the franchise and fandom as a whole is unquestionable, to say that pre ATC, Ghostbusters was in a slump would be a serious understatement whether die hards wanna admit it or not this film (and it's fan base) helped rejuvenate a flailing franchise and for that I'm truly grateful.
Much like my previous two tapes (stream/download them here) this plays out more like an enhanced soundtrack than a scene for scene audio re-telling, so put ya feet up, grab an Ecto Cooler and prepare to get Holtzmann'd baby!

It's been a minute but I'm back with another Ghostbusters mash-up!
This one came to me in the shower a few months back whilst listening to the original classic "Bustin' Loose" from the legendary Chuck Brown & the Soul Searchers (which is a great wake up track btw). "Ghostbustin' Loose" tells the story of the boys in grey's first bust at the infamous Sedgewick Hotel.
"Ghostbustin' Loose", like all of my Ghostbusters remixes and mash-ups is competely free to stream and download right here on EctoCrank.com.

After re-reading IDW's fantastic Teenage Mutant Nina Turtles/Ghostbusters crossover comic book series I became inspired to do a little crossing over of my own. For this one I knew I had to team Ray Parker Jr's immortal 'Ghostbusters' with the opening track from the 1990 Turtles move; John Du Prez and David Frank's cowabunga classic 'Turtle Rhapsody'.
Before I get into anything I've gotta say a huge thank you to Matthew Arndt for requesting this one. As a lifelong Michael Jackson fan I'm ashamed to say I that I never had the idea to combine these two tracks, so thanks dude!
For me, Thriller is without question one of the greatest songs of all time, so tackling this one was a real joy. Having said that, it was so hard to find ways to incorporate Ghostbusters into Thriller without changing the feel and the flow of it, so Thrillerbusters is definitely more Thriller with Ghostbusters sprinkled in than a straight up 50/50 mash-up.
Thrillerbusters will be available for free download from New Year’s Day right here on ectocrank.com
When it comes to Ghostbusters: Answer the Call, opinions are (shall we say) divided, but when it comes to Alex Goose & Tyler Demorest's "Ghostbusters 2016" featured in the trailer of ATC opinions are unanimous, it's awesome, it's badass and it maybe the best part of Ghostbusters in 2016.
Since day one fans have been clamouring for a full length/official release of this track and as yet those pleas have fallen on deaf ears (c'mon Sony, what you playing at!?). So, much like the Extreme Ghostbusters theme I've taken matters into my own hands, remixing a full four minute version of the track and I've thrown in a few classic Ghostbusters quotes and sounds for good measure. Props to Alex Goose & Tyler Demorest though, their natural talent and flawless work made this Ghosthead’s job that much easier. this was so much fun to put together, I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as i enjoyed making it.

I've been after a full-length version of the Extreme Ghostbusters for the better part of two decades. I was always hopeful that eventually someone would release a copy and then Jim Latham dropped a load of XGB songs that included a pieces of the track but alas still no full-length; so, I decided it was high time Ghostheads got their full version! I've taken all the pieces I can find and produced the 'Extreme Ghostbusters: Ecto Crank Remix' available now for free download, enjoy!
Peace, Love & Who You Gonna Call?
I never expected my IG to do so well that I would start doing a regular competition, I expected EVEN LESS that the winners of said comp would record unboxing videos! It's mad humbling to think that someone would take that sort of time to show me their appreciation and for that I say thank you. As a way of displaying these for everyone to see I have created a competitions page here on the site.
I've also just dropped a new musical project into the downloads section entitled 'Ghostbusters: The 8-Bit EP'. It's a short album containing 8-Bit remixes of the iconic 'Ghostbusters' theme song. All tracks originally appeared as in-game music for a number of classic Ghostbusters games from NES to Genesis and everything in-between. None of these are available as MP3's which is criminal because they're all soooo cool (with my personal favourite being the Genesis/Mega Drive theme).
Download and enjoy their 8-Bit, retro-y goodness, and don't forget to follow me on Instagram as my next giveaway is just around the corner!
Peace, Love & Who You Gonna Call?
