fractilx – Lunar Ascension | Drum & Bass

Here’s another deliciously upbeat and energetic track from fractilx. The tune hurtles forward on a boldly accelerated rhythm through a sea of chiming bells and piano and is really driven home by a beautifully crafted melody. Awesome work all around.


Throwback Thursday | AcousticBrony & MandoPony – I’ll Fly Higher | Alt. Rock

2 legends of the old fandom music days, AcousticBrony and MandoPony both started making waves in 2011. They were already two of the best-known fandom musicians…and then they collaborated to make this masterpiece. Well, okay, this is a re-recorded version which sounds much better, but the original was uploaded in December 2011 on both AcousticBrony (now making music under the alias Re:Make) and MandoPony‘s respective channels.

Despite its age, this song’s theme still holds strong today. The lyrics are sung from Scootaloo’s perspective and speak of her determination and inspiration from Rainbow Dash to be the best she can be. Whether she flies higher literally or metaphorically, Scootaloo still regards Dashie as a role model, and I hope we get to see more of that relationship develop in season 6. Until then, I’m gonna get nostalgic and listen to this song on repeat, enjoy.
