In something of a stylistic shift for Sights Unseen, we’re presented with something a bit different from his usual style. With an ambient introduction building into an orchestral soundscape, the first few minutes of this track would make a solid piece by themselves, however 2 and a half minutes in it pounds out some beautiful synth melodies, and continues in much the same style throughout, shifting between orchestral and synth-driven movements.
Start Again’s had some pretty great remixes already, and DJT joins the club with a high octane glitch hop re-imagining that I absolutely adore. A remix of one of my tracks in what is quite possibly my favourite genre? Yes please!
As LDB brings you the latest and greatest songs of the fandom, we have “Pony Bands” in our theme this week including The Shake Ups in Ponyville, AcoustiMandoBrony, and The Wonderbolts. In the new music part of the show, we spotlight some drum and bass with Protocat, an interesting song about socks with the Luna Ticks and a Tubby Wubby Pony Waifu cover by Crusader!
Full tracklist available after the break
A track full of spooky sound design, brought to us by relatively new pony musician J25K, Silent Ponyville feels like just the kind of track to be posting late at night. It’s clear that the artist wanted to create a track that would leave an uneasy air, and a majority of the sound design choices certainly lend themselves towards this goal.
I haven’t heard a whole lot of music from this artist, but the progression of this track is really quite pretty, and whilst some parts feel a bit raw, that somewhat adds to the emotion of the piece. There are parts where I feel like I can hear the weight of the piano keys, and along with the emotive strings, it makes for a touching end to the evening.
Following on with the relaxing vibes, Little Jester brings us a playful little chill track about Twilight that walks along beautifully, pulling us in its wake. Just the thing to follow along with during an afternoon break, or something similar.
Following on from Super Pony World (which we will have some sort of review post up for eventually, we had planned a comprehensive guest review, but that appears to have fallen through somewhat), Vylet continues to bring some beautiful chill vibes, with this delightfully peaceful track punctuated by some of the breath-taking future chords we’ve come to know from him recently.
A follow up to one of the best bass house tracks in the fandom (not many takers there so far!), Dark Crystals, Panic brings us Crystal Empire. Does this live up to the previous track? Absolutely! With some really nice vocal samples building into the track, it then proceeds to knock one’s metaphorical socks off with some clean, heavy bass noises that hit just right.
Having remixed Progressive Element’s track myself, I’m well acquainted with its catchy melodies that help form the foundation for this hard hitting remix from MrMehster, and I’ve got to say, he’s used them pretty well! Injecting his trademark Asian flair, reminding me somewhat of KSHMR’s style, Mehster’s remix is definitely one worth checking out. – EPT
Ayyy the boys are back in town B) Panic’s awesome bass house track from earlier in the year has been re-imagined through the collaborative vision of R3C and Strach who- while maintaining the same house tempo- have kept things fresh with some syncopated bass rhythms and an elaboration on the the implementation of the vocals. Check out all three artists for more great EDM!
