Dubstep and video games tend to hand in hand. Did you see the Titanfall advert? There have also been countless dubstep remixes of classic video game tunes. Some of these have been good, some have been shockingly bad. It really can be hit or miss, especially when gaming fans get a little bit too creative with their work. But there have been a few dubstep remixes and interpretations over the years that actually sound good and have some longevity about them. These are our favs.
Final Fantasy VII Soundtrack – Mako Reactor (Vose Dubstep Remix)
This one is great. It really captures the dark, brooding mood of Final Fantasy 7. It’s a decent dubstep tune in its own right and thankfully it relies on subtlety rather than mindless noise.
Final Fantasy VII – One Winged Angel (SpEctro Dubstep Remix)
Another one from Final Fantasy. This one is badass not just for the tune, but for the awesome video with Sephiroth.
Street Fighter Ken’s Theme Dubstep Remix
The source material here is so good and familiar that it would have been easy to mess this one up, but this remix sounds fresh and keeps those awesome riffs in tact.
Sonic – His World (Dubstep Remix)
This is not the most familiar tune related to Sonic. It’s actually a remix of a tune by Matty Lewis and Ali Tabatabaee from the rock band Zebrahead that appeared on the soundtrack of the 2006 Sonic game. That game was awful, but the tune and this remix are pretty great.
Song Of Storms Dubstep Remix – Ephixa
Ephixa makes these awesome remixes all the time. Seriously, check out his Youtube channel if you aren’t already familiar with it. There are a bunch of Zelda remixes to listen to.
Mirrors Edge Dubstep Remix
It’s just a damn good tune. Nuff said.
Mortal Kombat Main Theme Electro / Dubstep Theme
Most of the Mortal Kombat remixes knocking around are a load of rubbish. This one is decent, although it is a little borderline at times.
