Today I launched my new Ghostbusters centric website ectocrank.com. It celebrates my 25+ year love affair with all things Ghostbusters. Its fairy sparse in terms of content right now but eventually it'll be filled to the brim with news, artwork and a ton of free downloads. I'm launching it today because on this day back in 1989 Ghostbusters II (aka my all-time favourite movie) was released.
Oh yeah, I also dropped the Volume II of my Ghostbusters Mixtape today, so if you dig Volume I def give it a listen.
There’s no denying that Ghostbusters is a movie packed full of iconic imagery, memorable quotes, legendary actors and a stellar soundtrack.
I’ve gotta believe I’m not the only one who can’t listen to the ‘Savin’ the Day’ without hearing Venkman shout “C’mon, let’s run some red lights” or hears Louis Tully discussing the correct serving temperature for Brie during The Tammps ‘Disco Inferno’.
Whether I’m listening to the OST or the score I’m taken on a journey back through the movie, recounting scenes and quoting lines at just the right moment, culminating in an album experience like no other. My aim with this mixtape series is to bring you along on that journey; combining the soundtrack, score and the movie itself to (hopefully) give you that same feeling I get every thime I listen.
I really hope y’all dig this project; it comes from a place of real love for the Ghostbusters franchise and the awesome community that surrounds it.
The days are getting longer, nights are warmer and there's an air of love and of happiness about the world, why? Because summertime has finally arrived, and with it comes the now annual HiPNOTT Records Summer Sale and the release of my new mixtape "Grilling N Rhymes: Volume Two". Much like last year, HiPNOTT Records is offering a massive 50% off selected Compact Discs and Cassettes along with a free download of my new tape. As with it's predecessor (also available for free) Grilling N Rhymes 2 is filled with some of the finest Hip-Hop music both 2016 and the HiPNOTT Records camp has to offer, I'm talking tracks from 2 Hungry Bros, Amiri, Bop Alloy, Greenspan, Lessondary, LiKWUiD, P.SO the EarthTone King, Them That Do, and The Regiment.
So what you waiting for? Get yourself over to HiPNOTT Records and cop yourself a bargain or three, then sit back and unwind with Grilling N Rhymes, the sound of summer, summer, summertime.
