Tripon coming at you with those Jump-Up vibes again. When it comes to Drum and Bass Tripon never disappoints, and this song is a perfect example of that. The build up in the beginning with the horns is excellent in framing how powerful this song is going to be, and the usage of Trixie vocals helps us transition into a drop with some very classic Jump-Up sound design. The break section continues with the horns from the intro and leads in to second drop with some super interesting variation on the first drop. Once you finish up with this song be sure to check out the Bass House version of it as well.
Hold onto your flank because this track is going to take you on a ride to the outer reaches of space! Based off of a fanfic about probing the galaxy until there is nowhere left to explore, Dreams of Distant Stars is the exciting overture of the trip to places never seen before. The song alternates from soft instrumentation to a building sense of adventure, and ultimately peaks with exciting drums which drive the choir voices and other instruments with fierce energy. Both intense and beautiful, this track makes you feel the great ambience of space and not just from the perspective of someone gazing and admiring, but as the protagonist zooming through the infinite realm as an explorer!
Bank pain’s newest EP is the result of more than a year of work, and it really shows. With a nice mix of chill and heavy sound design bank pain sets out to show how he’s improved over the past year as a producer, and you can really tell how much improvement there has been. This is not an EP to miss if you love insane sound design. Be sure to grab it on bank pain’s Bandcamp page.
Here is another exciting collaboration featured in the most recent chart topping Ponies at Dawn album, Rebirth. Æthereality combines the amazing house–style music of EM120X with the phenomenal guitar shredding of SDreamExplorerS, featuring both SDream and Daria Intoxicated as vocalists. The track immediately catches your attention with the excellent synth and drums before making the bold and creative choice to introduce dueling metal guitars.A rare mashup of styles and great performance for all, be sure to check out this amazing addition to the Rebirth album!
Toby Macarony is great with a good mashup and this time he combines a couple of songs used as backing tracks in “Wonderbolts Academy” with some of his own flair to make a spectacular march. The first part of the song is immediately recognizable from the show when Rainbow Dash approaches the Academy. Toby adds a great drum intro with embellished low brass to really solidify the rhythm before tying the pieces together in a big hit with an awesome synth added in. Unique in composition and genius in composition, be sure to taste the sky when the Wonderbolts say Welcome to the Academy.
Wow! Here is an awesome metal track about Sweetie Bot of all things! Prince Whateverer puts his trademark, driving, metal sound to great use with some added vocal assistance from CGScrambles & Brittney Ackerman. Destabilize is intense throughout with an awesome breakdown which uses a mechanical-like synth to really bring a cool dynamic to the heavy track. This is another excellent PW track and well worth checking out!
SDreamExplorerS and Velvet Wings always make for an awesome combination of collaborators, with Velvet’s operatic vocals and DreamExplorer’s harsher ones combining with an epic metal instrumental to deliver a powerful tale of the windigos.
This is the first music release from Korneev (that I’m aware of at least), and it’s a good one too! A fantastic parody of Johnny Guitar (a song which some may have heard from the Fallout New Vegas soundtrack) all about Lyra, it has some absolutely gorgeous hand-drawn animation as well of Lyra jamming along.
Here is an unexpected twist from the normal Sights Unseen style. While he has always been good dabbling in different genres, Going Down explores the rap genre with each character of the Mane 6 getting a verse to describe how they defend Equestria. Sights really wows in this track by supplying a different voice for each protagonist and doing it all on his own. The choruses flow very nicely and change up the track to keep it fun and interesting while featuring multiple unique voices together. Sights is definitely one of those producers that has a very distinctive sound all his own and is definitely worth checking out to see for yourself!
If you’re familiar with the old works of Dr. Dissonance, you’ll be excited to see something like this! Repent in Reprise’s rendition very much works off the same sort of style, with many industrial steampunk elements adding a nice unique flavour to the orchestral rendition on show here.
