New cuddly release from Koron, always with the cutest genres, this time “Fluffy Drum & Bass”! It really could be the inception of a new genre, with the distinct cute and mellow melodies in the song portraying the emotions of Friendship beautifully, and that time when you reflect on your bonds while looking at the stars…
Disclaimer: This is about the remix from the original song, not the original song, and while at times it may seem like I’m talking down on one song, I intend to compare and contrast the two.
So my take on this remixed version of fluttERR from the original, well going back and listening to both for the first time, and by a side by side character I prefer the remix. Both are talented able and potential musicians, but something stood out to me more than the tune, cords, bass or vocals was the rhythm and theme of the music. The remix sticks with the same theme all the way through with a little surprises here and there. while the original seems to jump from theme to theme, its dubstep one second, hiphop, then electro the next and its rather distracting, but still a good song and im sure it was amazing in its prime. The remix is a fun remix you almost want to dance to, as stated in the comments you could get a wrong idea with some of the lyrics it depends on the person, it sticks with a select set of vocals to accommodate the beat and rhythm of the song. With how the song is set up you can tell its a remix, but in my opinion a rather good one, it has a great drop. the little addition of a new piece every few seconds such as a squeek, grunt (or moan whichever you prefer) the bass, is a rather fun addition, while this song is only 2 min 11 seconds its a great listen to and I recommend it! only thing i wish is that it was longer, great job PSFMer, with both the cover piece and the song, i cant wait to see more of your work in the future!
Strap in fellas today we’ve got ourselves a longer track by the wonderful Vylet Pony. The song starts out with a dreamy beat that really gives it a mysterious yet calming feel, and then the lyrics set in and really steal the show. Later the singing stops and we once more hear the amazing beat this time accompanied by some great guitar tunes until the lyrics set in once more and tell us some more about the scapeghosts but quickly the lyrics are once more replaced by a slightly different sounding beat that shows you even if this is a seven minute track it will not get boring whatsoever, after that the lyrics start once more and to end of the beat takes over once more accompanied by some more stellar guitar tunes. Overall this song might be the longest one I’ve ever done an article on but oh sweet Celestia it doesn’t get boring, in fact the switch between lyrics and just beat make this song feel even more lively than it already is.
Today fellow bronies we’ve got ourselves a great track by Proto_ssin. The track starts out with the beat and some tunes and builds up until it transitions into a lovely piano solo and slowly adds other tunes again while still keeping the piano in the foreground until the beat takes over once again and builds up until it eclipses in the chorus and without any exaggeration as I heard the drop for the first time it nearly blew me out of my chair with its 220% awesomeness. After this banger of a chorus the beat calms down again only to after some time build up again to once more transition into this banger of a chorus. But wait there’s more! Proto_ssin makes you think the track is over but once more the piano picks up with a simple tune and slowly the beat return and brings us one more amazing chorus.
Today we’ve got a shipping song from the lovely Vyprae. This song starts out with an already amazing eat that slowly adds more stuff to make it feel like the masterpiece it is. It later adds a lovely drum loop and builds up to a drop honestly made in heaven, with sweet vocal chops and the beat taken over by it this makes you wanna jump up and down until you’re parents complain you woke them up. After that the first beat takes over again this time adding even more awesome stuff. Shortly thereafter we once more get this lovely drop with all the vocal chops. Without any exaggeration this is the best OMFG style track I’ve ever seen.
Note: Since the original video got deleted, you may find the MP3 file of the song here.
Harmonic Six continues their string of crafting heartfelt orchestral tributes to beloved series characters with this beautiful tribute to Rainbow Dash and Scootaloo! The song’s title and first half are reminiscent of the episode “Sleepless in Ponyville” where Scootaloo begins the episode hoping that “someday” Rainbow Dash will notice her and take her under her wing, which is evoked wonderfully through a soft, building orchestral arrangement. The song takes a dramatic turn midway through that echoes Scootaloo’s fall into a river and rescue by Rainbow Dash, who saves her from being swept over a waterfall. The song then returns to a more gentle theme, which seems very appropriate for two daredevils whose love of speed and adventure is ultimately secondary to their love for each other. Overall, the song has a wonderful cinematic feeling that successfully emulates the qualities of the movie scores that inspired it. The result is a really well-made, emotionally satisfying track that should not be missed!
Today we’ve got ourselves an amazing track by FelonOnBass. This track starts out simple but quickly starts adding new tunes and building up slowly until it eclipses in a way that blew me out of my chair as I was listening to it for the first time, but wait there’s more! The drop never comes down again it just continues and builds up until it comes to another drop and maybe one of the best house beats I’ve ever heard. After that and also massive amounts of jumping on my part the beat sorta calms down, it’s calmer then before but still in this state of absolute house amazingness and just as you caught your breath from all the throwing down the utterly amazing second drop happens again and the song slowly ends.
Today we’ve got ourselves this great track from the talented RedWire. The track starts out with an amazing beat and some birds but quickly more joins in and you realize that this isn’t your run-of-the-mill Breakbeat track. And oh my Celestia the chord progression around the thirty second mark, if you look up amazingly awesome cord progression in the dictionary that is what you get! Then, suddenly the beat changes to a more futuristic sounding beat with some industrial sounding samples accompanying it, the beat goes on like this for some time until a slightly different tune takes over for some time until it changes once again giving the whole song a really lively feel in the end a piano is heard accompanying the final part of this song.
You know Toby, you just keep being one of the most delightful musicians in this fandom. My fellow bronies, it took 9 years, but this classic CMC theme just got the most excellent remix! Toby has transformed this theme with fast and exciting Eurobeat! Those high energy wavy harmonics, those uptempo drums, and pounding basslines take this charming song of the CMC trying to get their cutie marks and as the artwork shows, injects their crusading energy with nitro! You know this theme bronies, now have it with some pure adrenaline! One that Travis Odyssey did not do, but he sure does love it; that really should give you a hint about this track! (look in the comments) Oh, if only Applebloom, Sweetie Belle and Scoots knew where this journey would take them. As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
Cadenza Heartsong is very well deserving to have one in Horse Music Herald’s view. One of the best tracks on ASOS: Chocolate. Anyone who has played RPGs for most of their lives (namely Final Fantasy 9) will pick up on this and more than likely have some serious chills and feels,.
At track 46, he takes that inspiration and turns it into something a lot of bronies really need at this very moment, a heartfelt message of hope. The arrangement is like you’ve gotten off a balloon from earth realm, right to Ponyville. You’re a brony so spent with how our world is, that you look around and see the ponies of Equestria living happily and in harmony. The quaint and hopeful elements used are like you’re right in a video game of Equestria. The use of the sparkling harp for the taste of magic is a really nice touch! You find yourself being led to Twilight’s castle as she knows where you have come from. You’re welcomed warmly into her home with the rest of the mane 6 and are treated like family as this track plays on. The artwork and heartfelt message at the start of the video really set the vibe: very nice and wonderful as you come into the world of Equestria. It’s a real gem on this album, but as always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
