Frozen Night – Hope Eternal | Orchestral / Soundtrack

My fellow bronies, lend me your attention for just a moment. We have a real honest to Celestia pony inspired video game with a seriously awesome OST! It’s called Ambient.White, check it out Here. The music however is full of exciting energy. The same energy that good video game music, does to get you to feel invested into the game itself. Frozen Night composes the main theme of this game about two alicorn sisters (Astrum and Krinita) on a dangerous journey for their lives hiding in enemy lands. This Orchestral theme sets that tone very well. from the start. The music pulls you in with a sense of wonder, danger and excitement. This music gives me a Dust: An Elysian Tail vibe seriously. As always, This Qilin asks you judge for yourself.

YeahButThenDragons – Find the Music In You (Covering Daniel Ingram) | Acapella

This catchy song made famous by the PonyTones has been reimagined by YeahButThenDragons and her brother with just their voices alone! Their arrangement makes it seem like a fully live rendition done by a full acapella ensemble, just from the addition of body percussion and plentiful harmonies. Daniel Ingram would be proud.

Maressey – Well I Wonder | Indie Rock

After a long wait, the final album in the Maressey tetralogy is here. Track 7 from The Twiluna Album is Well I Wonder, a parody of the Smiths song of the same name as well as the album’s central track. It depicts a scenario where Twilight encounters Luna on a visit to Canterlot, and the two form a large bond, making it a duet between the two. Faux Snyder and Metal Mare brilliantly play those roles, respectively, and Freewave‘s instrumental rendition of the original track is top notch!

BassPon3 – Midnight Flight | Trance

Hey you. Wanna get high? Then this track from BassPon3’ll do ya good. Midnight Flight showcases an interesting blend of hip-hop and trance while also containing an uplifting atmosphere. As is to be expected of BassPon3, its heavily influenced by trance music of the 2000s with its melody, synths and choir sounds. This one’s sure to make you feel like flying late at night without a care in the world!

Nicolas Dominique – Sunset Flight (Remastered) | Trance

And continuing with the remastered set of tracks is Nicolas Dominique with Sunset Flight, originally released in 2012! The newest rendition of the classic song, while shorter in length, is a much more carefully crafted version. All the late 90s/early 2000s trance elements come together perfectly, creating a calm and nostalgic atmosphere that people like me just can’t get enough of! It really feels like a relaxing flight across a sunset sky.

StrachAttack – SHYSTEP | Dubstep

From the ashes of 2013 rises SHYSTEP, a remake of StrachAttack’s song of the same name with a new coat of paint! This rendition is a fast-paced dubstep track with Fluttershy vocal chops and chiptune synths, a good mix of the old and new. Coupled with this beautiful track is an equally beautiful image of Fluttershy in some blue skivvies, which has an oddly innocent quality to it. Those powerful drops, though! Good stuff for nearly 12 hours’ work.

The Empty Tomb – Midtown | Future Funk

Coming in strong after a banger of a track is another banger by The Empty Tomb! I don’t know how he does it, I swear. One second he drops an amazing Future Bass VIP and the next literally a few days later is a slapper Future Funk track. After hearing the original sample which is used through the entire song, George Benson’s Give Me the Night, which was definitely full disco, Tomb’s track takes that old disco feel and flips it on it’s head. I’m not kidding, by adding great sounding percussion and modern EDM kicks and snares, it changes the flow from your parent’s disco to something that everyone will want to blast through their speakers. I swear he’s like this fandom’s version of Jonas Aden, always releasing bangers all the time!!

Maressey – The Twiluna Album | Album | Jangle Pop


After a long 3 year wait, Maressey have delivered their fourth and final album, The Twiluna Album! As we’ve come to expect, Maressey is a tribute act that focuses on ponified versions of songs performed by The Smiths, a British indie pop/rock band that were around in the 80s. Freewave leads the Maressey project and has brought a large amount of guests on board to help with the music and vocals, such as FritzyBeat, Faux Snyder, Fire Frets and Sylverlining. Snyder’s vocal talents in particular are to be noted, and can be heard across songs such as Bigmouth Strikes Again, Luna in a Coma and Well I Wonder; her higher voice makes for a nice contrast in place of Morrissey’s deeper baritone range. Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want showcases Zatslol‘s vocal work, which is also noteworthy for featuring a striking resemblance to Morrissey’s own voice. Standout tracks include Some Mares…, Luna in a Coma and Back to the Old House, which stand as very faithful renditions to their original tracks.
