Frozen Night – The Light and Its Shadows | Orchestral

Frozen Night’s latest release shows us a piece written a few years ago for the fan game Ambient.White! This piece seems to narrate the aftermath of a battle, and builds some tension while maintaining a sense of determination. It’s as if, despite the hardships of battle, there’s a way through at the end. Check it out for a short but sweet piece of OST!

Sprocket – Redemptio Lunae | Hybrid Orchestral

Inspired by their piece, “Luna’s Redemption” releasing nearly a decade ago as well as the journey that this fandom has taken Sprocket on through all the years since, “Redemptio Lunae” may bare little resemblance to the former track, but it compliments it very well!

Mournful yet hopeful, this piece makes very good use of tension and has an atmosphere with plenty of intriguing instrumentation that compliment each other wonderfully. From sustained strings to brass folly, emotional and complex piano runs and choir chants there are also some well utilized e-pianos and synth arpeggios that really add to the mood. And don’t get me started on the crisp, low harpsichord in the opening act that’s subtly hypnotic! At six minutes, there’s plenty to unpack with this song and each section has a distinct, yet subtle shift in tone which all flow together seamlessly. Have I mentioned this is their first MLP related track in five years? Its a welcome return and I am excited to see where we go from here!

Prince & Tw3Lv3 – 2013 | Pop

Well this is certainly something new! In his newest banger the amazing PrinceWhateverer teamed up with beatmaster Tw3Lv3 to create this fun parody of Charli XCX’s track 1999. With Tw3Lv3 creating a whole new instrumental and PW supplying his amazing vocals this track is a fun travel all the way back to 2013 when things were quite different in this fandom. Definitely give this song a good listen and I can promise you’ll really enjoy it!

SpinScissor – Marshmallow Girl | Electro Pop

I’m far from the first person to say this sounds like Owl City, but it really does seem like a track off Ocean Eyes! Even though the upbeat and danceable instrumentation is fantastic in itself, it’s SpinScissor’s vocal performance that really shines through on this song. The dynamic range between the soft-spoken verses and shouted choruses, the tastefully tuned vocals, the little touches of call and response lyrics; it all comes together to make an excellent song!

PrinceWhateverer – Shallow Naivety 2022 ft. Frozen | Metal

A household name with an orchestral twist! PrinceWhateverer and Frozen Night bring us an emotional track about King Sombra’s relationship with Princess Celestia that fans of the IDW comics will especially appreciate. Keep an ear out for the drum solos as well as the orchestral breakdown by Frozen Night, which beautifully contrasts with the heavy guitar that Prince is known for, putting Sombra and Celestia’s heartbreak front and center. Add to that the wonderful animation by Nootaz, and you have a collaboration that’s definitely worth a watch!

PSFMer – Pontextual | Techno

I’ve been reliably informed that this is actually techno, not just an outdated label for EDM! It feels close to a trancey beat, but there’s something about the way the arrangement slow progresses and how the bass repeats the same pattern that makes it feel very eerie and unnerving. The image used probably helps to convey that feeling too! Check it out for something a bit different to normal from PSFMer.

Vale & Fl0 – The Legend of Somnambula (Dubstep Remix) | Dubstep

There’s something almost nostalgic about dubstep that samples clips from the show… Vale & Fl0 nail this classic style in this short but sweet piece about the legendary sphinx-busting pony. It’s full of deep and heavy modern bassy sounds, with a nice use of the harmonic minor scale to hint at a Middle Eastern vibe.
