As an added bonus, fans can download an exclusive remix of the Tetris song created by Cole. Says Plante of the opportunity to remix the iconic song, “I’m a huge gamer and Tetris is one of the most well known games in the world, both in gameplay as well as the theme song itself, so it’s a pretty big deal for me. When I first started DJing, I would actually throw the original Tetris theme song into the middle of my sets to catch peoples’ attention and the crowd would go nuts. I think that has a lot to do with the guys in the audience because so many of them were also gamers.” Fans can download Cole’s remixed version of the song in the Tetris Blitz game now or check it out here!
