[ASOS] RoomVR – Let’s Go For A Walk | Orchestral

RoomVR’s heartfelt new masterpiece moved the audience a lot during the live release party of A State of Sugar Bubblegum, and its storytelling intent and personal meanings are certainly a part of what made the track to be so impactful. Music is magic, and in times like these it can not only make you feel powerful and otherworldly emotions, but also convey the creator’s feelings and being thus empowered by that. Insane talent, beautiful creativity and musical vision, personal feelings, and an intent to share them, all contributed to make this divine experience of sound possible. Truly an amazing tribute to what you can feel while being surrounded by the beauty and peace of Nature, during a walk in the woods…

Elias Frost – While My Yovidaphone Gently Drones | Traditional Yak Music

Playing on the name of the classic While My Guitar Gently Weeps from The Beatles, Elias Frost follows up on the early-released new episode with more yovidaphone play that would impress more than one yak. Complete with mighty percussions representing the pride of the yak kingdom, and other traditional instruments, the song is a much welcome continuation to the episode’s lore and pays much tribute to it.
Yak happy! Yak smash!

More trance from eksoka can only mean that good times are around the corner, and this time we’ve got a CMC-inspired piece from them about going on an adventure.

HACKD – Go With The Flow | Tech House

If you like creative use of clips from episodes, then this round of cider will be to your taste! It was inspired by S06E12 Spice Up Your Life and it’s full of flavor as per The Tasty Treat’s tradition! Lovely use of both vocal and SFX clips from the episode is complementing an instrumental and sound design work from under the counter, and HACKD displays once more how pony passion and hard work make the magic happen.

[ASOS] TCB – Only One (R3CTIFIER Remix) | Indie Dance

My favorite track from A State of Sugar Bubblegum is what I believe is a very fine example of the otherworldly power of pony vocal chops, and Passion. Covering the original melodies from TCB‘s original track in a brand new genre and different progression, R3CTIFIER took a certain vocal part from the original and decided to focus on it for this remix. That was quite the amazing vision, as those certain chops from Your Heart Is in Two Places, along that newly crafted atmosphere, are precisely what is triggering so much emotion when I listen to it, to the point that I can’t help but tear up. We love those characters, so hearing their voices like this is very powerful… or so seems to be the logic behind this phenomenon. In any case, I’ll always be grateful to life, and to musicians like R3CTIFIER and TCB for making such powerful emotions happen..!

[ASOS] BlackIceMusic – Sweet & Sour | Melbourne Bounce

Fresh from the A State of Sugar: Bubblegum Album BlackIceMusic gives us this funky and fresh gem. Melbourne bounce is something we could always use more of and they nailed the feel perfectly. There is quite a bit going on here and the sprinkling of vocal chops and samples alternating from “sweet to sour” really brings out the sass while keeping things cute  and all in all is a great piece to sample from the album.

[ASOS] Single Purpose – It’s Ok | Drum & Bass

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 26 July 2018.

Single Purpose’s music seems to be pretty consistently cool, and this tune builds upon his initial releases on his channel in all the right ways. Melding together soft piano and strings with a consistent flow given through the percussion, there’s also a nice use of vocal samples to add some atmosphere.

Steely Hooves – Under My Wing | Acoustic

Steely Hooves Is back with this great piece that explores the interesting relationship between two of our favourite pegasi. The guitar work here is just lovely, and its backed by some simple percussion that complements it very well. I especially like the vocals here, they are relaxed and smooth, but there is a very strong voice behind them. Keep up the great work Steely.
