V I R T
Pretty sure the guy behind the Shantae Soundtrack I and II is Jake "Virt" Kaufman. He's the guy behind www.vgmix.com (although I'm pretty sure it's down for some ungodly reason) and is an expert at arranging game music, both original and the classics.
Word of advice: straighten up and polish the presentation for this, give it a name derived from hip-hop (sounds like hip-hop) and submit to www.ocremix.org. I'm sure they'll appreciate it as much as we do.
