"I played Tetris all the time when I was in college, especially during exam season, when I'd have little study breaks to reward myself with a round of Tetris," says Katherine Ho. "Tetris was like a supportive friend that helped get me through stressful times, and it's such an honor to have my original music be part of a game that I've spent so much time playing! It's even cooler that I get to pay homage to my Asian-American heritage through it being in Mandarin. Much gratitude to Jason Chu for being the best co-writer and translator, and to CHOPS Music for the incredible beat and production."

I’ve always dreamt of creating soundtracks for video games… and now I’m awake, doing music for the #1 game of all time!" says DJ Qbert. “Arranging the studio, consolidating the car trunk, etc... everyone's doing the Tetris! I even apply the phenomena to my skratch combos!
