AM.FM.GM - Tetris new melody
I was back in high school when I started searching for video game music. It was an era just shy of the chiptune revival of the late 2000s and I was deep into the mash-up fever from the early 2000s. It was around this time that I found Tetris New Melody from OCremix (which I will surely blog about later). AM.FM.GM is a bedroom mixer that pieced together a great composition of the classic tetris theme (originally a Russian folk song called "Korobeiniki". The remix takes the core melody from the original theme, but adds layer after layer of interesting bass lines and harmonies that creates a complex experience that begs to be heard with a good pair of headphones. This song was definitely one of the gems from the site, which had the sea of sub-par submissions you'd expect from a user content generator. Unfortunately, the song has since been taken down and the remixer AM.FM.GM has disappeared.
