Somebody that I used to know ft. Gotye & Kimbra [8-bit chiptune/bitpop cover]

Gotye has been creating his unique sound for years but the world took notice with ‘Somebody that I used to know” featuring Kimbra. Luckily this very identifiable song translates really well to the SID chip – or maybe I was just inspired with this one.

This track has been created with only the sounds of the 35yo Commodore 64 MOS-6581 Sound Interface Device (SID) chip. Renoise was used to build this piece and give me as many C64’s as I needed and processing effects.

Since I’ve now developed a bit of an appetite for doing Bitpop/Chiptune remakes, I’ve been looking for a few more songs that I’d like to cover. The criteria is that the song must’ve struck me in some way to enthuse me enough to have a crack at covering it.
