Thunder Dash – The Overcomers | Piano Solo

This encouraging new track from Thunder Dash embodies the message of overcoming life’s many obstacles.  The piece is divided into three distinct movements, all representing different phases of the life’s journey.  A light and happy melody, introduced at the beginning and played throughout, produces an overall feel of positivity and optimism.  This melody, however, falters deliberately at times, suggesting that life is not perfect, but it’s important to keep on going despite obstacles and mistakes.  A darker section in the middle of the piece seems to represent the times when life’s struggles can feel almost overwhelming; the times when doubt and fear obscure our vision of the light at the end of the tunnel.  However, joyful and encouraging tones quickly return, reminding us that life’s obstacles do not represent the end of the road and do not need to be permanent roadblocks that define us.  For all of us who falter or fall at times, the message of this piece is to always get back up and to keep pushing forward with hope and determination.  With major and minor key shifts and changes from higher to lower registers on the piano, life’s hills and valleys is clearly depicted, but the piece ends on a high note of victory over life’s struggles.

[Equinity] Spikey Wikey – Basic Waves | Future Bass

In keeping with the theme of Equinity’s latest album release, Immersion, this track by Spikey Wikey creates a truly immersive, journey-like atmosphere that delves into many facets of ocean beauty and adventure.  At first, light melodies seem to bubble on the surface of the track like driftwood.  Later, the melody deepens, suggestive of diving beneath the ocean surface to explore hidden treasures in its depths.  At times, mystery seems to beckon, as the destination feels uncertain.  The sensation of simply floating can be felt at other times.  At one point, a breathy gasp from Twilight shifts the track into a frolicky, bouncy vibe that’s pure fun.  At this climactic point, the music brings a feeling of release and wonder, as if the diver has just emerged from a seemingly endless underwater cave and entered a hidden world of beauty, fascination, and discovery.  Enjoy the immersive journey as you listen to this amazing track on Equinity: Immersion!

[Equinity] PSFMer – Coffee Beans | Drumfunk

Equinity’s latest album, Immersion, has just been released! Along with many epic new tracks comes Coffee Beans by PSFMer.  Powerfully introspective and rhythmic, wafting waves of base undergird the track throughout.  A call-of-the-wild, ambient atmosphere replete with bird cries and other exotic animal sounds creates a sense of being transported into the jungle in the midst of a mystical, magical safari.  Complex rhythmic drum patterns add to the feel of an epic journey into the wild, where both danger and the promise of high adventure intermix and irresistibly beckon.  Some sweet bass work adds to the deep, almost underwater feel of the piece, very appropriately in line with Equinity’s theme, Immersion!

Daniel Ingram – Awesome As I Wanna Be (Budzy Remix) | Happy Hardcore

Time for an Equestria Girls remix! This track starts out with a thick electronic drum segment, setting a fun and energetic tone for the song. The track quickly ramps up after the drum intro, with more bopping music and the mixing in of the original vocals from Dash herself! The whole song in general is just packed full of energy, and kind of reminds me of early fandom music, which is definitely a good thing!

Dandelion – Art Of The Dress (feat. Aleksey) (Covering Daniel Ingram) | Orchestral

So, everypony, today we’ve got something a bit different. Dandelion got together with a friend (Aleksey) who isn’t actually a brony and got him to play the show’s “Art of the Dress” on a big great grand piano and the result sounds fantastic. Afterwards Dandelion only re-recorded the last part to make it a bit more fortissimo. The entire song is completely without the lyrics and it actually works pretty well! Dandelion also added a subtle bit of orchestra that gives the whole song this beautiful background, and that orchestration also closes the song, making for a great outro.

Thanks to thecanderson for proofreading!

Metal Core Pony – Wishful Reminiscence | Post-Hardcore

Metal Core Pony returns with his newest song since 2018, Wishful Reminiscence! Showing that he hasn’t lost his touch at all, this track displays some really soulful vocals over a heavy melodic instrumental. It’s all about the fandom (as his tunes usually tend to be) and its current state, with the hope that things can change for the better if we stick together, like the days of old. A powerful message for sure, coupled with a brilliantly made song. Welcome back, MCP!

MidnightFritz – Wings of a Pegasi | Chillout

Midnight Fritz returns with an uplifting track that highlights the gentle and supportive help given by Rainbow Dash to Scootaloo.  Soft piano chords and gentle guitar plucks sooth the listener with waves of tranquility.  High notes combined with the low piano chords and soothing guitar in the background skillfully highlight the lighthearted, childlike wonder of Scootaloo, as well as the warm, tender feelings that characterize her sisterly relationship with Rainbow Dash. The magic of friendship is brought to life in this delightfully warm tribute to these two close friends.

Blackened Blue – The Road Less Travelled | Hard Rock

Oh no! Blackened Blue is lost in the desert and losing his mind! Well, at least we get a kick ass rock track out of it! By this point, it should come as absolutely no surprise that one of the premier rockers in the fandom has absolutely crushed the sound of the heyday of hard rock. The driving electric guitar, drums, and bass arrangement is so satisfying to hear. What I like about this straightforward arrangement is that it allows the listener to appreciate how good the instruments sound with lots of reverb goodness and a pleasing openness to the mix. The icing on the angst cake is Blackened Blue’s vocals, which are fantastic and spot on for this style of song, delivering lyrics that have me a little concerned for his well-being. I also love the art used in the accompanying video which really helps pull the viewer into the story. I know that it’s too much to hope for a full “rock band in the scorching desert” music video, but it’s still fun to imagine one! Hope you enjoy listening to this track (at high volume) as much as I do!

Koron Korak – Dreamy Violet Eyes of Wonders | Chillout

What a beautiful gift! Inspired in part by a special somepony and Twilight Sparkle (Check out the YouTube description and wonderful video art!), this sweet and shimmery track is brimming with lovely vibes! The track opens with the sounds of nighttime insects before a light melody joins in. The melody is soon joined by a simple rhythm before adding an additional synth, bass, and guitar. Touches of choir and melodic percussion support the main arrangement before some beautiful, summer-y violin takes front stage and adds a sweet earthiness to the ethereal mix. The arrangement’s composition and intensity shifts, ebbs, and flows as the song drifts along through the warm summer evening. Please show Koron Korak some love for this chill and upbeat track!
