Audio file

Octo Eight-Step, also known as Eighteen-Legged Concerto, is a song performed by Turquoise October.


Octo Eight-Step is essentially an extensive remix of Eight-Legged Advance, but with a very different song structure. The production remains very similar, but instead of the prominent guitar track, it is replaced by reversed samples of the Squid Sisters' City of Color.[1]

It was first heard in the Splatoon 2 - Single Player Trailer, and can also be heard in Squid Beatz 2, with a maximum score of 112 and 225 in Normal and Hard modes, respectively.

Samples and interpolations

Inkopolis Memorial Mixtape

Main article: Inkopolis Memorial Mixtape

Octo Eight-Step can be heard near the beginning of the Inkopolis Memorial Mixtape linking the songs Shooting Starfish and Eight-Legged Advance together. It mostly remains the same, except for the added record scratchings being played in the background throughout.


Octo Eight-Step could be implying a march like Eight-Legged Advance, but it could also be implying a dance.

Eighteen-Legged Concerto references the amount of limbs a squid and octopus have added together, being eighteen. The squid in question is likely Callie.
