They Come From Above! (Tetris)

It started out early this morning. Very early. More like really late, last night, come to think of it. A friend tossed me a link to a Tetris remix that a buddy of his was working on, and.. Perhaps it was something about the way the guy said it. The "I can compose music, so I am innately awesome," air he had about him. He started off by saying "I spent my afternoon programming seven drum tracks, a bass track, and two guitar tracks." Not as though he were stating simple facts, but as though he were boasting about it. Now, this is forgiveable, so long as the mix lives up to it. I listened to it.. And three things came to mind. "It's totally out of key," then, "He's decent with his guitars, but his drums are plain awful," and finally, "This is possibly the most terrible mastering I have heard in all my life."

I told my buddy that. And his response was simply.. "Do better."

And so, here I am. Half a day later. Complete mix in hand. Asking you, how well did I do? I won't link to the original song until it's officially published, so as for now.. I just hope you enjoy this one. I never thought I would get a Tetris remix done today, but.. Life's like a box of chocolates. Enjoy. :D

**EDIT** Somewhere between my computer and Newgrounds, the song seems to have developed really poor audio right at the beginning. I've just uploaded a new version that should fix that.. Hope this helps! :D

Great work!

I'm surprised, not only because you made something as interesting as this in half a day, but also because you managed to make a remix of a video game song manage to be original and appealing!

Having worked on music production a bit before, I have to say that your drum tracks are clean and crisp, and your levels are great, avoiding the problem some people have with cranking their guitars or drums too high.

All in all, a great submission and one of my favourite Tetris remixes! Amazing work.


Respect yo! Blam!! This is NOT a piece of crap!!

Mataro responds:

Thanks bro'. Appreciate it. :D

Awesome :O

Epicly awesome remix!
Can I use it in a video?
I was thinking of making a Spelunky gameplay video, but with this song playing, it would be 10 times better...

Mataro responds:

Go for it, dude. Just toss me a link when you're done and don't forget to give credit! :D

Glad you liked it though, and thanks for the review. :P

You've done a really great job man!

The only thing i could think of that would take this song further is making it even darker... Give it a little more metal feel, but else i love the composition :-)

Mataro responds:

That sounds like a good idea actually. I may just revisit it one day.. If I do, I'll try and remember to let you know. :P

Thanks for the review. :D


Man i love this! So fun to listen to.

Mataro responds:

Happy to hear it, man. :D
