Keeping with the Equinity theme, we have Cynifree with Mumbo Jumbo! Equinity 02: Catalyst‘s 26th track is a throwback to season 1 territory with references to Zecora in the tribal-esque beat and samples of her dialogue from Bridle Gossip placed throughout in time with the rhythm. The perfect soundtrack for a race through the forest.
Never mind the BS, here’s FilledSilhouette! Track 5 from Equinity 02: Catalyst is a groovy French House piece that feels like a throwback to the late 90s. A sample which fades in before being joined by a beat makes up for the bulk of the song and you’re definitely not gonna get this out of your head any time soon. It’s also a track from Filled’s upcoming album, Rarity’s Fashion Playlist, so keep an eye out for when that sees a release!
A mashup of My Little Pony and Bionicle! When you think you’ve seen it all … The first half is a cover of William Anderson’s Luna’s theme. It keeps the beautiful harp and the choirs however the main melody is played first by the woodwinds and then joined in by the strings, instead of introducing both at once. This lets the music slowly build up and serve as an extended version of the original of sorts. The astonishing prose poem in the description that accompanies the piece is one of Heartsong’s best works so far and explores the depths of Luna’s psyche. It is as much a part of the whole experience as the music itself.
Brilliant Venture is great at turning several vocal chops into a mesmerizing, quick melody! His distinctive style and bright, organized compositions are both exciting to hear and ooze that beloved pony-vibe that comes with recognizing the many sound bites from the show. The intricate and ever-evolving beat of Outstanding Power Play Ms. Hoof! keeps you on your toes, a staple of Venture music!
EESO has a very distinctive style and it is always a joy to hear a new track from them because you can be assured that it will be wholesome and genuinely heartfelt. Life of a Brony has a soft, showtunes-y feel like a love song from a Disney movie or a warm, season-ending track from MLP. The piano composition is on point with beautiful accompaniment from violins and just the right amount of energy from the percussion to make this song both soothing and easy to rock back and forth to.
It’s time to take to the skies with Soaring Skies, a TheTaZe collab with CCF_100 and Too Taken as track 20 on Equinity 02: Catalyst! This fast-paced DnB piece is absolutely euphoric, with pitched up vocal chops and optimistic synth melodies all around. Really makes you feel like you’re actually soaring in the skies!
Vylet Pony’s third album of 2019 – Queen Of Misfits – recently came out on Christmas Day, and this is the title track as well as the closer. It features regular collaborator Namii on vocals alongside Cabi, another vocalist. All three of their voices shine brightly in this beautiful piece about the album’s concept of Trixie’s gender identity. The music features Vylet’s signature electronic style and compliments everyone’s voices and harmonies with flying colors. Pure bliss in audio form!
Track 21 from Equinity 02: Catalyst is BassPon3’s debut appearance on the Equinity project with Rainbow Skies, a bouncy techno song that feels like a journey with Rainbow Dash through the skies. The melodies, bouncy bass drums and trance-like synths all give the track a nostalgic feeling, especially towards the middle, when a filtered bass leads the track through followed by a glitzy music box track in the little breakdown afterwards. It’s like something from the early 2000s, but in a good way! Sit back and let the memories flow with this one.
Mane In Green has blessed us with her fluff once again with this beautifully crafted piece about Rarity. The song showcases Green’s signature orchestral style while also capturing Rarity’s personality with flying colors. Elegant, dramatic and mellow, this track progresses in many different forms and moods as the sky also lightens and darkens now and again to fit with each progression. What a beautiful trip!
One of the rising stars of pony music has brought us an elaborate and intricate track as part of the Equinity 02: Catalyst compilation album. The music is dominated by a great diversity of instruments and sounds, and sporadic wubs strewn across the track. The intro foreshadows what is to come by establishing sophisticated soundscapes. Then, accompanied by very interesting drums, sounds and a heavy bass we hear what appears to be a sword fight followed by pony vocal chops. Suddenly comes a wild piano interlude. Before the outro you will find a section made up of that loud bass from the beginning and unsettling hats rhythms fitting perfectly the eerie atmosphere of this incomparable track.
