OCR01191 - Shinobi "Dark Tortoise"

Recommended Posts

I heard this one way back on the WIP forum and loved it right away. I told moonove personally to submit this for sure. I love the chill vibe and flowing sounds that are integrated here. Those wet clappy sounds are a neat touch too. Classic stuff here, hope to hear lots more from moonove..

I have been waiting for another remix of this theme to come out for quite sometime. So this was a very fulfilling download.

Subtle but great all the way around. Great work.

Great mix! Definitely a keeper. Straight from the arcade (though heard briefly as the bonus stage music in the SMS version). A bit repetitive, but I like it anyway.

PS - Yuzo Koshiro did not compose the music to Shinobi, only Revenge of Shinobi. :)

My opinion: the pad, the bass, the bell sound and the arpeggiator are excellent.

But I can not bear (stand) [*] those the too hard panned percs in my headphone. For me, they ruin the whole mix; can we have a version without ? :wink:

[*]once again, sorry for my horrible english speaking and writing.

This has got to me my new favorite song off this website. It's so cool and laid back, and the riff used is just so damn catchy. Please keep making mixes for this website, there are too many bad remixers and it's people like you that give me hope music is still good.

Excellent stuff, very nostalgic tones.

I agree with CouCou; those hard pans are a bit much on headphones, but otherwise a great tune to listen to! Atmospheric++ :D

This is a great track. Very subtle and laid back, excellent to chill to. Interestingly enough, Shinobi is not where I have heard this melody before.

There was another game out for the Sega Master System called "Alex Kidd in Shinobi World". I don't know if the same composer did music for both, but the track remixed here is the same as the inbetween level music for that game.

Upon further research, many tracks are the same from both games. Including the boss theme, beating a level theme, and the dying theme.

This is the Bonus Stage Theme from Shinobi. Alex Kidd in Shinobi World has a similar soundtrack because it is a parody of the Sega game Shinobi.

Certainly an amazing track. The bass, the beats, the pads...I love it all. There is an awesome feeling going on this song, which is the main reason I can loop it several times and never getting tired of the music, besides it being meditative and very, very chill.

If you like this one, be sure to check out his originals at http://www.moonove.com/, in addition to some other Shinobi arrangements available.

A bit on the repetitive side, but it is a really nice chillin' mix. The sounds used fit well together and, and though the super wet claps are strange, they give the mix character.

The melody threw me off at first because of the accidentals at the end, but after a few listens, i've grown to really like it. The pads are really nice, an d the textures are quirky but they work. I have to say that even though it's just the same melody with different backing, it somehow stays really fresh throughout. I'm still kind of baffled how you did it, but there you go.

Nice remix.

Great remix here. Textures and chords give it kind of a mysterious feel which I really dig. The hard panned percs are a bit weird, but I can live with 'em. Pad and bell lead are both gorgeous. Simplistic, but interesting throughout.

Thank you all for your support.

Shame this wasn't the case, I would've loved to hear more.
