Apple’s iconic Marimba ringtone has been remixed a countless number of times since the original iPhone came out, but a new remix inspired by composer Steve Reich will leave you totally hypnotized.

Created by artist Seth Kranzler, “Marimba Ringtone Phase” replicates Reich’s style by playing the ringtone on two iPhones ringing at slightly different tempos. The trippy effect puts an all-new spin on a classic tune.

There have been a lot of remixes of the iconic iPhone ringtone over the years, and this one may be the best. The guitar solo at the end is an unexpected twist.

The remixer goes by the name MetroGnome, and his YouTube account features countless remixes of popular songs. He’s got some original stuff on iTunes, and it’s pretty standard electronic music.

You can download the above track yourself and turn it your own ringtone if you want to be that kinda guy at the party. It’s not free, but I recommend Ringer in the Mac App Store.

Apple is now allowing you to purchase Ringtones directly from your iPhone 4 (I’m not sure if this is supported by other models, but I suspect it would be).

Here’s how it works.
