This track was part of the GameDuels EP hosted at KNGI. The radio network had a silly 'Versus Month' during July 2012 portraying character type against character type musically through its flagship show, Nitro Game Injection. The first three character type winners were represented in this EP, with the challenge being to take two of them and to make a remix fusing them.

Your choies were between a ninja, a cowboy, and a warrior. Luckily, Live A Live - one of the most underlooked SNES RPGs around IMO - had the first two represented through Oboro-Maru (the ninja) and the Sundown Kid (the cowboy), so it made things appropriate to mix their themes together, using stylistic traits of both traditional oriental and spaghetti western music.

And yes, the harmonica is LIVE! :D

DAW used - Reaper. VSTs - Zebra / Addictive Keys / Komplete Elements 8 / EWQLSO Gold / Cinematique Bongos / Edirol Super Quartet / Garritan World Instruments / Koto Nation (Impact Soundworks).

I Clicked This For The Title, Having No Idea What To Expect, Leaving The Tab To Scroll Through Facebook And Deviant Art, Thinking It'd Be One Of Those Things I Could Close In Less Than 30 Seconds...

And Then It Reached 30 Seconds, Taking A Totally Unexpected Turn And I Instantly Came Back And Downloaded This!

I Love The Different Phases Of The Music, Taking On Different Paces And Then That Build Up To The Last Sorta Minute... Just... All Of My Yes!!

This Is Brilliant, Well Done!

How do I put this...Motherfucking beautiful? Its pretty calm and chill; I like it.

Nice track, I like the pacing a whole lot
