Honest – Under water | Drum & Bass

So everypony today we’ve got ourselves this lovely track by Honest. The song starts out with a slower piano that is quickly joined by a lovely DnB beat. The beat continuously builds up until we transition to a slower and calmer beat that then transitions back to the faster beat, which makes for an amazing progression. As you might have realized by now, this song is rather short, but as the saying goes, it’s short and sweet, just this little bite-sized portion of amazingness.

Daniel Ingram – Best Friends Until the End of Time (Whirly Tail & loophoof Remix) | Happy Hardcore

So, everypony, today we’ve got another awesome show remix. This time Whirly Tail and loophoof try their hands at “Best Friends Until The End Of Time”. This track starts out with a fun hardcore beat and the first vocal chops, and after a bit more things get added until the lyrics start and the beat changes completely and slowly ramps up. As we start with the original chorus of the song the beat continuously ramps up until we get to the drop. And oh, sweet Celestia, the drop is amazing; it’s just a fun Explosion of all sorts of melody and synth amazingness! After that the beat ramps up even more until we get to a second drop, and this one is even more Happy Hardcore than the last one with a heavy drum loop that is sure to make you jump, and it actually continues until the original chorus ends. After that the beat calms down a lot but then immediately ramps up again and we get a third (and again different) drop, this time more tropical sounding. Later on we slow down to pretty much synth supported clapping and muffled lyrics and after the beat ramps up again we get the second, drum loop heavy drop once again. We end this whole thing by returning to the more tropical beat and a few more vocal chops.

Daniel Ingram – Raise This Barn (Rod Steven Remix) | Eurobeat

Today we’ve got ourselves another remix of a show song. Rod Stevens brings us this amazing Eurobeat Remix of “Raise this Barn”. The track starts out with an instrumental part and a “Yahoo” from Applejack, and then, intro-ed by another “Yahoo”, the lyrics start and pretty much play out as the beat slowly builds up while every now and again an instrumental portion shines for itself. Then as Apple Bloom’s part starts the beat ramps up to 120% awesomeness. Later for the end of the lyrics the beat calms down a bit, and for the grand finale we end on another awesome instrumental portion and a “Yeah” from Apple Bloom.

Nyancat380 – Indifferent | Deathstep

A heavy and dirty track about the insane multi-personality Pinkie Pie inspired by “Cupcakes”; this track sure punches you in the face! You know, I’ve come to know Nyancat380 with talks about music with him, about how there is much “method to his madness” and how he seems to do things with his musical arrangement by blending hardcore elements into anything he does. This song is a pretty good example of that! We get one side of Pinkie: her angry, crazy and violent side, and then you get deep and dark drops with heavy dubstep bass that just shows off Pinkamena’s vile and aggressive side. With a giggle from Pinkie, the song then speeds up and these really odd and weird almost D&B elements come into play. Quickly after, everything only gets more crazy as if to tell you that this is the twisted maniac Pinkie talking; she just wants to have fun with her toys with you. Nyancat380 is a mad maestro of hardcore electronic music and this track just tells you that right to you face. As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.

Toby Macarony – Autumn’s Stars | Alternative Electronic

Toby is at it again with their distinctive style and flare! This one is a surprisingly tranquil piece with a very soothing atmosphere, a groovy bassline and a plethora of wonderful instrumentation. Choirs? Pan flutes? Grungy breakbeats? This has it all and has an astounding dynamic range! I’ve always been a Kirin fan and I just have to say I don’t know how they do it. Making ethnic inspired melodies, groovy basses and choirs work together in harmony but once again Toby knocked it out of the park!

SweetF1RE – Princess of Love | Happy Hardcore

Today we’ve got ourselves a lovely Happy Hardcore track by SweetF1RE, featuring our favourite Princess of Love. The track begins with just a simple crash and then immediately starts with the beat. The beat in the beginning is very video game sounding and makes for a nice intro but quickly changes to something more pop sounding with the earlier beat coming in again later for a lovely combination. After that the beat changes and becomes a bit simpler to make way for the lovely Cadence vocal chops. As a little transition SweetF1RE uses an effect that frankly I’ve never heard before, and after that the beat returns once more to the pop-y beat but still keeps the vocal chops. Later the video game melody returns once more, but then we get a whole other beat making for an amazing progression.

Sawtooth Waves – Flurry’s Part (feat. Vylet Pony) | Alternate Electronic

Today we’ve got ourselves another great song by Sawtooth Waves which is once again paired with an amazing PMV by daspacepony. For this track they got the help of Vylet Pony, who provides the awesome lyrics. The track starts out with a lovely melody and then adds a drum loop with a background buildup that comprises the entire track buildup even though it’s just one sound and the rest stays the same. And for the drop we get treated to a little reference; the start is essentially an extended version of Sawtooth’s intro with some pitched background vocals by Vylet Pony. After that we return back to the normal melody and more lyrics by Vylet Pony, but this time it’s not pitched vocals anymore, and Vylet gives us more or less a partial cover of the show’s “You’ll Play Your Part” while the PMV changes the meaning from Twilight’s Part to Flurry’s Part. While all this happens we once more get the build up to another drop along with a more extended intro and the pitched background vocals, and we end on the last part of the original “You’ll play your part” show song. As I mentioned before this song has an entire PMV attached to it; daspacepony once again went all out on the visuals incorporating different things along with his animation including visualizers and lyrics being displayed throughout.
