After listening to VibePoniez: Homework, this track can go under the radar with the rest of the names on this album, but I promise you that this track is a diamond in the rough, trust me. This track is put simply, how ponies, or us bronies, can be entranced with such emotional music; the title says it all. I hear future bass elements, but it is slowed down and so chill and relaxing, yet you still could just move to this song. The bass and sweet vocals and the lo-fi type elements mixed in is so fun, the composition is well done; so much vibe and body in this tune. Don’t sleep on this track. As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
Another musician the needs some eyes on them. I got you covered Japkozjad!
How about a track about just enjoying a peaceful and chill moment of a quiet night under the stars, just entranced after a pretty hectic day of activities? You grab some cider and a blanket, maybe invite some friends and just enjoy a moment of peace with how the stars are. The melodies are so enchanting and full of wonder, and those elements are mixed so dang well. The soft keynotes, that rolling wubbing, the finger snaps, the flow of the bassline, those harmonics, all just righteous dude! If you need a track to just think about something deep, this is your track, my friends. As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.

This is such a powerful display of the vocal talent of one Chasing Dawn. This Brit has a great voice and this track about how people can change is a wonderful display of vocally being able to invoke that emotion! The melodies are soft and dreamy, the lyrics are pretty emotional telling just sometimes people can change due to life or whatnot, and it can be taken as a simulation of life experiences, good or bad. You may love this person. They may be a trusted friend and things just happen beyond your control. It’s a pretty lovely and meaningful track and a real treat by Chasing Dawn. I can’t help but think about how much easier it is to find these feelings in the world of Equestria and how we can learn from that. As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
Everyone loves William Anderson’s incredible scores from FiM and Toby Macarony is no stranger to getting emotional when it comes to gorgeous music. Inspired by scores from various episodes, Toby recomposed and mixed a medley of fantastic pieces into one big track. The instrumentation is vast and incredible, spanning flutes and worldly strings to rock drums and guitars to horns and more! If you take a listen, you’ll be sure to hear several licks you remember and call to mind great memories!
After a bit of a quiet spell, Ditherer has returned on a hot streak, this time with the very fitting talents of mycutiemarkisagun who sets the stage with a vintage hip-hop instrumental. Ditherer brings his trademark flow rapping about everything and anything that’s been going on. Never one to shy away from saying what is on his mind, it is fantastic to see that Ditherer is still genius, introspective personality we fell in love with in recent years!
No stranger to writing a series of music around one theme, RottenTotten brings us their newest work based on FoE: Project Horizons. This dramatic orchestral piece uses the strings very nicely to create a sense of tension and danger. The choir “aaahs” add nice texture with harmonies and expand the range of soun to make the setting much bigger and scarier. RottenTotten teases that this is just the beginning of a much bigger project so be sure to stay tuned!
Today we’ve got ourselves another song from the fabulous Vylet Pony! This song is part of her newest album “Super Pony World – Fairytails“, but let’s skip the rambling and get straight into it! The track starts out with some amazing slow strings, which quickly transition into a mix of Irish folk and tavern music. Later on the tavern theme takes over more, but the beat still keeps rather calm. Shortly thereafter the amazing voice of Vylet sets in welcoming all of us to the tavern where one goes to forget about the past. As a pre-chorus you can hear a choir of voices followed by an awesome instrumental part. After the chorus the barkeeper, who is also sung by Vylet, chimes in, and the two talk until the choir is heard again. This is followed up by what I can only describe as the best part of this song: for a few lines the beat takes a complete back seat while Vylet’s voice is layered, which causes the best effect I’ve heard in ages. This song is worth listening to for this part alone. After this the instrumentals resume, and in the end you can hear the other patrons of the Dream Stage talking as the rain falls. All in all this song is a masterpiece, and you should listen to it no matter what genre of music you enjoy!

Today we’ve got ourselves a remix by the talented Faulty. The song remixed, “Being Big Is All It Takes” by Daniel Ingram, certainly is a masterpiece in and of itself, so let’s take a look at what Faulty did with it, shall we? The track starts out with a lovely Progressive House beat, and the lyrics quickly join in. While the vocals tell us all about the CMCs new change you can hear the beat slowly building up. As the chorus sets in you are sure to bob your head along, if not dance along–it’s just that amazing. As the chorus ends everything calms down for just a second only for the beat and singing to resume in all their glory. As the CMCs sing their lines the beat continuously increases in awesomeness as it builds to the chorus (I think by now I don’t need to tell you how fantastic the chorus is), and it carries the song until the end.
To be quite honest this remix deserves its place in the hall of fame of the best remixes of show’s songs ever made, and it might just be the best “Being Big Is All It Takes” remix out there.

As I’m sure everyone knows by now in this fandom, the 10th anniversary of MLP:FiM just recently occurred! What better way to celebrate it than with some awesome brony music? In this track, expect a positively chill experience, composed of electronic music, backed up with smooth drum beats. The song itself has a late-night mood to it, which, in my opinion, really adds to the festive anniversary feel. Overall, expect chill vibes from this awesome track!
Today we’ve got ourselves something special, everypony! For the tenth anniversary of Friendship is Magic loophoof and R3CTIFIER made a stunning remix of the final show song, “The Magic of Friendship Grows”, but before I venture into complete fanboying territory let’s get to the bottom of this amazing track. The song starts out with Twilight’s first lines and a simple, slower beat, but don’t let that deceive you! This is not a slow song by any means, and the beat quickly starts building up signalling an incoming chorus; then, after a single note, the drop happens. The drop is an explosion of awesome sound, and the combination of amazing lyrics and fantastic beat is sure to make you jump up and dance. The calmer beat returns for Pinkie’s part before ticking up again as Rainbow takes over, building up again and again to that one specific note and another drop. The amazing chorus takes over again, this time while we are shown scenes from the School of Friendship, and if you didn’t dance before I guarantee you will now. Applejack’s lyrics are accompanied by the calmer beat and a soothing melody as we are given some breathing space, which continues through Rarity’s part, but the tone shifts as Fluttershy sings, and we build up again. This time we don’t hear the single note and get an even better drop with an even more upbeat beat as we see all of the secondary characters that we all love. And then the ending. The ending is just…wow. For the ending loophoof and R3CTIFIER recreated the original melody with a tear jerking synth that really gives this song a worthy conclusion as we see the Mane 6 for one last time and close the book on Friendship is Magic.
