Recreating the theme from Mortal Kombat (The Immortals’ “Techno Syndrome”)

To celebrate the recent release of Mortal Kombat 11, we decided to recreate the theme song from the game’s film counterpart.

The original song, “Techno Syndrome,” was composed by an electronic music duo known as The Immortals and appears in the 25-year-old soundtrack, Mortal Kombat: The Album. The track is at 134 bpm and is in the key of A minor, also borrowing from the Phrygian mode.

For this recreation, we used the Prophet V3 for the basses and CMI V from Arturia’s V Collection for the main melody. There are also a few instances of Serum in the project as well.

Download the Ableton project file and follow along with our video tutorial, where we walk through how we produced our recreation of the Mortal Kombat theme step-by-step:

Lastly, get your hands on the drum samples that we used for our recreation in this repack.

Are there any other video game or film themes that you would like to see us recreate? Let us know in the comments below.
