Voltage (Nice Sprite Chiptune Remix)

By DjCUTMAN on Mar 19, 2012 1:52 pm

A lot of people rag on Skrillex now that he's super popular grammy award winning gothic looking twenty something, but something always stuck with me about his songs. Even after the initial "wow-factor" of his trademark dubstep monster sounds wore off, I found myself remembering his melodies. Could it be that they're actually well-written pieces of music? I took the Skrillex song Voltage and re-created it with Magic 8bit, basic processing in ableton, and a heavy dose of EQ, to create this piece. The harsh and crazy nature of the original dubstep tune is replaced with the light-hearted, optimistic chiptune arpeggios and square lead. An intensely sculpted vocal sample gives the piece context, although I feel it works without.
I hope you enjoy this piece as much as I enjoyed making it.

Thank to Evan Duffy for his awesome piano arrangement that I used as a reference for this chiptune, and of course thanks to Sonny Moore for the original piece.

Well hey there isn't this a upbeat nice little piece here.

Well said. Well made.

I agree it could use a bit of variation but I still like this. It's really smooth. Great transition too.

I really really like how you blended the vocals and i like how the 'drop' sounded like an interval kinda thing instead smile

some variation would be nice - the same instruments throughout make it kinda repetitive - especially the lead
