Haunted Mansion Vinyl 7" (limited to 500) by Ghost Cave

$5,300

118

  • Who are you?

I’m dj BC, the producer behind Ghost Cave and Ghost Cave Records. (Our first self-titled album is out now on streaming services and iTunes. ) I’ve also created the critically acclaimed mashup albums The Beastles, Ziggy Stardust Remixed, Wu Orleans, the Santastic Christmas Collections, and others. I’ve produced four records for Big D and The Kids Table, as well as remixes for other signed artists.

  • What are you planning to make?

A glorious 7" vinyl record package , in a limited edition of 500 (100 purple, 400 black).

The aim is to ship NOVEMBER 2019 on all rewards. (the Deluxe pack says 2020, thats an error)

The A side will be THE HAUNTED MANSION (aka Grim Grinning Ghosts)  Ghost Cave’s electro-dance mix of The Haunted Mansion theme song. The B side will be “We Are Ready To Believe You (ATOM Stay Puft Mix)” featuring nerdcore rapper Tribe One holding forth on Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II, ATOM's microhouse beats, and hype man Supercrunk. These are both 5-6 minute dance mixes. We’ll also have cool pins, art prints, shirts, and stickers available for some levels. 

This project is fun because it’s got creepy Halloween vibes all over it. And the Haunted Mansion remix will be extremely rare- it will not be distributed outside of this Kickstarter of 500 vinyl and 500 downloads. If we meet goal, we WILL do direct digital distribution of the tracks before Halloween if at all possible.

  • Where did this project come from?

I've loved The Haunted Mansion ride, history, and all associated music since I was a kid. When I started messing with my electronic version of the composition, I realized that licensing the composition was actually possible! I thought this would be a cool way to make an exclusive, rare single of an unusual version of a creepy classic- and also get this Tribe One "Ghostbusters" song out there in some ears as well.  ATOM's “We Are Ready To Believe You” remix- from Ghost Cave’s self-titled debut album- is the perfect creepy/funny B-Side to this Haunted single.

  • What’s your plan, and what’s your schedule?

The Haunted Mansion remix is scheduled to be mastered professionally on September 16, and the B-Side is finished and mastered. Once we get funds, we will immediately begin pressing records and creating all the giveaways. While I’d love to promise Halloween delivery, November or early December is more likely given the production time of vinyl (4-6 weeks). AGAIN: If we meet goal, we WILL send the digital tracks to you before Halloween, if at all possible.

  • Who is making all the things?

We’ll use local production house Kindercore, in Athens GA, to press the vinyl. We will use Mindzai, an independent, artist-owned and operated graphics house based in Atlanta and Austin, to do stickers, pins and art prints. We may use other vendors as needed.

  • What’s your budget?

The base level budget for this project is just about $5,000. I’ve tried to include most every expense when calculating. Most of these numbers are rounded up to account for shipping, taxes and other add-on expenses. 

Licensing: $150.00

Press records: $2,000

Mastering: $100

Mailing sleeves (cardboard 12"): $550

Art Prints (9" by 12"): $200

Ghost Cave Records pins and 500 HAUNTED pins: $300

Ghost Cave stickers and HAUNTED stickers: $500

Postage: $1,500

  • Why do you care?

I love The Haunted mansion and I love vinyl. This seems the perfect vinyl-kickoff project for the brand-new, ultra-underground record label Ghost Cave Records. We’ve been dying to bring our ethereal musical collections into the physical world. Support this Kickstarter and 999 Happy Haunts will thank you!
