I’m such a big fan of Ennio Morricone’s “Ecstasy of Gold” (and some of his other works as well), I still listen to the Bandini remix almost every week and this time it gets a sick 8 bit treatment from Doc Trashz and 1.21 Gigawatts!
If you don’t know who Ennio Morricone is, here’s a bit of info on him: (if you already know him or you are just not interested into knowing one of the most influencal music composer of all times you can just skip to the download link :p)
“He is widely acknowledged as one of the most prolific and influential composers of his era, particularly recognised for his film scores. For over five decades he has composed and arranged music for more than 500 motion pictures and TV productions including some award-winning film scores as well as several symphonic and choral pieces. He wrote the characteristic film scores of Sergio Leone’s Spaghetti Westerns A Fistful of Dollars (1964), For a Few Dollars More (1965), The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966) and Once Upon a Time in the West (1968). In the 80s, Morricone composed the scores for Leone’s Once Upon a Time in America (1984), Roland Joffé’s The Mission (1986), Brian De Palma’s The Untouchables (1987) and Giuseppe Tornatore’s Cinema Paradiso (1988). His more recent compositions include the scores for The Legend of 1900 (1998), Malèna (2000), Fateless (2005), and Baaria – La porta del vento (2009).
Morricone has received two Grammy Awards, two Golden Globes, five BAFTAs during 1979–1992, seven David di Donatello, eight Nastro d’Argento, and the Polar Music Prize in 2010. In 2007, he received the Academy Honorary Award “for his magnificent and multifaceted contributions to the art of film music”. The composer also has been nominated for five Oscars in the category of Best Original Score during 1979–2001, but has never won competitively.
The original was released in 1966 and now here’s the 2011 version from 1,21 Gigawatts and Doc Trashz!
