In honor of the new Shantae sequel that came out almost a decade after this game! I did it entirely from scratch and by memory, not having listened to the song once so that it would have my own personal flavor in it. Enjoy!

What's up with the OOOWOP sounds?

Either way I like what you got here. Guitar definitely fits the atmosphere and overall a great cover for an under appreciated game

LadyArsenic responds:

Thanks, I'm really glad you like it~! Thank you for being able to appreciate my style and technique, horrible sounds aside. I've been stuck using horrible free soundfonts for my whole life, but the good news is I just got East West and now all of my music will sound the way it's supposed to!
The Oowop sounds are traditional sounds that bellydancers make during a performance, and I dunno. This piece always reminded me of bellydancing. =)

Keep listening! Don't forget to check out RyeGuyHead's stuff, he's a beast!

Needs to be a BRSTM (so it loops infinitely like from in a game)

LadyArsenic responds:

Thanks for the heads-up :)

The feeling of this is amazing. You totally nailed it. I'm very happy to see someone so talented placing their gaze on such an underrated franchise. I have to ask, how do you get that middle eastern sound in your melody? Is there a scale of notes that retains that kind of feeling?

LadyArsenic responds:

Oh wow! Sorry for the late response haha!
Anyways, thank you so much for the comment, it was very awesome of you. I love Shantae and VIRT so I couldn't help writing tribute pieces! He and I have actually become friends and he likes the remixes, so I guess that's about the best thing I could ever ask for in making these.
Anyway, there actually are scales that are known as Arabic scales, and they're probably the ones that instantly come to mind when you think of Middle Eastern sounding music. I also think instruments are really important. I use a lot of ethnic flutes and plucked stringed instruments when writing for this kind of style, and I'm also very partial to fiddles. Gives it kind of an East European Gypsy feel to it, don't you think? Anyway, that's it haha. Thanks for reviewing, and thanks for listening!


You are the BEST for doing remixes of music from Shantae!!!!!!! Your stuff is SO good!!!! Are you going to do remixes for more stuff from Shantae?? I'm really hoping you will... I know you'd do an awesome job of it (since you already have)!!!

Can't wait!!! ;D

LadyArsenic responds:

Hahaha why thank you! I just do it to have fun and unwind sometimes when I have a writer's block. There definitely should be more to come, I have several Zombie Caravan variants that I'm trying to decide on, so that'll probably be my next little project. Stay tuned, and thanks for listening!

I dig it

Very cool feel to the song.

LadyArsenic responds:

Heehee thank you! Like I said, I do these Shantae remixes all from memory so all of them will have a bit of my own spin in them.
