HMH submissions form open!

Want to submit a song or album to HMH? Now there’s a new and easier way to do so! Traditionally, we’ve been reliant on our staff members scouting for songs to post about. However, it’s easy for us to miss something in our YouTube subscriptions and we might not spot new artists immediately. So we made a submissions form for anyone to submit their music to HMH!

You can submit your own music or someone else’s at this online form.

Submitting guarantees that we will check out the music and consider it for a post. All submissions will be subjected to our usual review procedure.

EDIT: We are unlikely to accept anything over a month old. If you do submit something older than a month, we will make sure we follow the artist to catch their next release.

Skyshard – Her Adventure Begins | Epic Orchestral

Considering that this comes from a collection of songs telling a story about heroes, this song from Skyshard has a very fitting style and soundscape! Taken from their most recent album, Tiny Sky, it certainly sounds like the introduction to an epic tale. There’s a great use of a recurring motif and a nice bit of modal interchange that I personally always love to hear in music.

ALostCarolean – The Queen of The Hive | Darkwave

Nightmare Night may be over, but we can keep the theme dark if we want! This latest offering from ALostCarolean takes some 80s-inspired synthwave sounds and combines it with heavily distorted and driving bass to create this imposing theme for Chryssy. But it’s not just another Changeling-themed song we’ve got here, but also the promise of an entire EP dedicated to the shapeshifters coming in about a month’s time! If you like this sort of thing, keep an eye on ALC’s YouTube channel for more…

EveryDayDashie – Equestria Hustle | Hardstyle

Every day we’re dashin’! Back again with a so-called “Chinese hardstyle” track, EveryDayDashie has created something that blends a slightly softer kind of hardstyle with sounds of traditional Chinese instruments and melodies. They imagine how life in an Equestrian city might be, and how it compares to their own experience. You should check this out even if, like me, you’re not typically a fan of hardstyle – it’s much more melodic than you might expect!

Kakofonous A. Dischord & flankƨ​y – flank​ƨ​y / kakofonous a. dischord | Experimental Album

Two friends have decided to blow the dust off their collabs and bring them out to the light for us to enjoy! Kako, aka an experimental/noise musician, founder of the music label noise.horse and game designer and developer was collabing in the last year or two with secretive street artist flankƨ​y, flankƨ​y’s music is known throughout in Pinkamena Party albums and previously featured on noise.horse too. Both musicians have chosen the streets as their office work to mark their underground musical art with narcotic frequencies and fresh physic sounds. This illegal album is only available on bandcamp and pony.fm.

flankƨ​y – self titled

flankƨy’s backpack is packed of graffiti cans, the murals and the ambience need visual and musical communication. The drums encompasses the alleyways and the bass and deep tone synths vibrates with the muse of the artist as we witness their street art. A bopping intro for an invite only event.

flankƨ​y – take me down

This is not the Friendship Games, this is an underground jam that’ll bring down your walls as your speakers pump out the grinding bass! The variety of vocal chopping is so dope it’ll make you breakdance with the crew.

flankƨ​y vs kakofonous a. dischord – a soft bed (shared)

Alike the coziness of a bed, this intimate collab song narrates the experience of ponies sharing the bed. Dreamy synths fondle romantically with calmative drums as the bedroom’s ambience is alive with the deep affection of the ponies. Who do you ship and visualize for this endearing scenario?

kakofonous a. dischord – route 3

Kako’s aesthetic style is not described through their productions, but it is felt. A chill pad of wonderment strolls peacefully with outlandish but amorous drums taking the wheel while a coloring melody joins the euphonic ride. You’ll unconsciously be in tune with the route as this jam of aurora plays making the driving a feel in autopilot.

This otherworldly collaborative album is the good stuff that youngsters are vibing to, spread word around to support both musicians if you want another dose. I know and said nothing of this album. *writer disappears in the dark alley*

Dat1Pony – Bane (Prod. Pendo46) | Hip-Hop

CW: mild gore

First time feature here for Dat1Pony! The flow of their lyrics in this is almost hypnotic, and combines perfectly with the spooky sounding beat from royalty-free producer Pendo and the artwork. Good to see the brony rap game’s still creating good players.

SOUND BANDIT – KISSING MY HOOVES GOODBYE | Hyperpop

Sometimes, all you need from a song is a solid vibe, and this SOUND BANDIT release is a prime example. Warm synthy instrumentation and chops from show classic “Winter Wrap-Up” form a uniquely cozy yet peculiar atmosphere, a signature touch of the producer.

EveryDayDashie – Top Zipp-cret | Orchestral

Logging into Zephyr Heights Royal Queen Agency: Access Granted. In G4 we had canon special agent Sweetie Drops, now in our G5 era we have fan dedication of the spy, her name is Storm… Zipp Storm. A musical piece inspired by film figures like James Bond, spy-themed titles like The Incredibles and with custom orchestration. The development of this theme is so well played you’ll feel like a sidekick investigating on a “top secret” adventure. The electronic arpeggiators creating a sci-fi atmosphere is a wise choice of element and the classic guitar is a necessary tool for the task. This is an intense composition and it suits well for the risky pegasus.
