You can always count on Elias Frost to cook up something different. Covering the opening song from Equestria Girls: Forgotten Friendship, Frost takes the happy pop track to a heavy, darker place. Adding some metal beats, a lot of distorted guitars, and a dramatic synth, Elias creates a brilliantly unique take on the original, complete with the video of him performing it.
Brilliant Venture’s always had a talent for nostalgic songs, and Moved On is no exception. At once melodic, energetic, and oldschool, this song jumps from genre to genre fluidly. It’s like being taken on a guided tour by a cheerful, helpful, kind pony (Pinkie?) through a world of happiness and nostalgia.
JoinedTheHerd is back and going strong with this remix of Time to Be Awesome! Interjecting his amazing synth phrases into the hit movie track, JTH keeps the uplifting feel of the song while adding his own cheerful style to the mix. JoinedTheHerd uses the chops to capitalize on the catchiness of the song and mixes them up so that it keeps you on your toes, making for an awesome remix!
UndreamedPanic’s been hard at work lately, with the end result being an awesome new album of future bass and synthpop-y tunes! This first track from the album has some awesome vocal chops and upbeat composition, as well as some classic future chords. You can grab the album on Bandcamp here!
Wandering Artist (or John Doe) is back with some more deer-y pony music! Originally intended for the Pony Town soundtrack, this piece evidently evolved into something a bit more than that, with some gorgeous complexity and dynamics throughout the piece. The composition is soft and playful, making great use of piano, strings and more.
Electro, hard trance, whatever you want to call it, this collab between Flyghtning and Flutter Rex is pretty cool. It has this great combination of a dark soundscape, which is only enhanced by the triplets. That deep bass drives most of the song, but it occasionally breaks down into an arp that switches the whole thing into a major key all of a sudden. I love that sort of play between major and minor roots in the same key, nice work by both of these guys!
Kelvin continues his recent Applejack-themed acoustic streak (in fact, it’s all part of an upcoming album) with this more melancholic piece about wanting to go back to the past and simply remain there.
Rusty’s already a very experimental musician, but this song goes a little deeper and a little weirder into that sort of production technique. The general feel of the song makes me think it could fit in to some kind of horror musical, but it’s Rusty’s sampling techniques that bring out the experimentation. The middle section of the song also breaks down a lot of convention and adds another different, eerier sound to the song.
Oh hey, new musician! Fascinatin here has made a neat synthpop track with some great melodic elements and nice big chords. There’s some room for improvement, but it’s a really promising start for a new musician to make something as good as this!
An amazing feature on MyLittleMusics’ album Spark:Magic done by Moon Flame. A really warm ballad with really awesome instrumentation! The vocals and the lyrics are also really well performed as with the “yay” samples! It’s amazing that it got featured on ROCK FARM! Download the “Magic” album on Spark bandcamp!
