Hay Tea – Audio Log | Drum & Bass

Another Fo:E inspired song, one of many we’ve seen since the series’ creation years ago, this new track from Hay Tea reminded me briefly of Princess Addictia’s Balefire, but perhaps that was just because of the theme and genre. Nonetheless, Hay Tea’s knack for making great liquid dnb has resulted in another great song from him!

GhostXb – Astrum Vs Krinita | Orchestral

We see songs inspired by other fandom works fairly often, but rarely do we have actual soundtracks to them! GhostXb (along with other musicians, I think including Direct Current) has been involved with the music for the upcoming fan-made game, Ambient.Prologue. This piece comes from the public beta version released last month.

Daniel Ingram – The Spectacle (Knife Pony Remix) | Electro House

Knife Pony appear to be moving on from their horse alias to something else, but they’re ending it with their aptly named ‘Finale’ album. This track is a banger of a remix of that dance tune ‘The Spectacle’ – it’s had quite a few remixes by now and this definitely stands amongst them as one of the clubbier ones.

Violin Melody – Shadows | Electro House

Inspired by the king of shadows himself, Sombra, this electro track from Violin Melody manages to combine solid synth design with some catchy melodies and subtle dark undertones – a track worthy of the inspiration source for sure!

Alexis Julemier – Ride On The Rainbow Wobble | Drum & Bass

Bringing me back a little to the DnB that used to be a lot more prominent in the fandom is this track from Alexis Julemier full of some really bright and happy melodies that really fit in with the Rainbow Dash persona. Sit back and enjoy the ride.

うすうすベア & KILXYU – YANDANCER (feat. Chase) | Gabber/Breakcore

fractilx brings together a couple of their aliases for something rather more dark than their usual offerings, with a super heavy hardcore track about Moondancer. I just love how they manipulate the vocal samples especially, really cool stuff.

Art Fonseca – Lights Over Canterlot | Jazz

I remember hearing some of Art’s music a couple of years ago, and I’m delighted to see them return to the fandom music scene once again. Just to have some new jazz is wonderful, let alone that this particular piece is absolutely fantastic! Definitely worth taking a listen whatever your taste in music.

Elias Frost – Lullaby for a Princess (covering Ponyphonic) | Gregorian Chant

We’ve seen a fair few acapella songs from the fandom, and plenty of covers of Lullaby for a Princess, but Gregorian chants are few and far between. Expect organs, pads, and a ton of reverb in Elias Frost’s take on the fandom classic.

Sonic Rainboom – The Fuck-Up (feat. Francis Vace) | Industrial Pop

Sonic Rainboom teams up with the vocal talents of Francis Vace to deliver a powerful piece of music about the deep inner feelings of Trixie. In fact, in the description of the track SR goes into quite deep detail about his feelings behind Trixie’s behaviour. The way the main part of the song comes in is just raw power, and this track is one of SR’s best in my opinion.

Quicksilver – Problems (Fluttershy Has a Chainsaw) | Punk Rock

Quicksilver has definitely become one of my favourite non-electronic artists in the fandom, and even in a relatively short track such as this one he shows why with some really energetic vocals, and an instrumental to match. I’m not the biggest fan of the subject matter, but can definitely still groove along to this one regardless.
