There's a remix song based on a game called Runescape that I really like and want to make a playlist of other songs that are like it too but I can't find anything similar.

The song can be heard here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CqiN7QfSr-c

I tried searching for dubstep or techno but none of those sound right. I really like the upbeat nature of this song along with it's use of non-instruments (although having instruments are fine too). Above all anything similar shouldn't have words. Part of why I like this is it's just a plain fun song.

Are there any suggestions on specific songs similar or maybe a better clarification on what genre I should be looking for?

The remix is done in the style that was popular in the 90s called big beat.

It was basically breakbeat with very straightforward grooves sampled. The samples were stacked in a fashion to create a noisy but robust sound that invited the dancers to do torsion dances that were familiar from rock n roll. Big names in this genre were Fat Boy Slim and Chemical Brothers.

Here is a mixtape that dwells on this moment.
