[P@D] L-Train – Mi Amore (Set It Off) (feat. StealingShad3z) | Electro Swing

Well, well, well, L-Train returns once more to Electro Swing for Ponies at Dawn’s newest Album, “Oceansong”. This time on his adventure through all the different Princesses it’s Cadence’s turn, and with the help of Stealing Shad3z he made this one just as much of a banger as the others. This one starts out with only the synth bass as the rest of the arrangement slowly builds up, and like his previous songs the synth bass is always there clearly to hear. The lyrics are one big flirt with the Princess of Love herself. As always the vocals take center stage pretty quickly. A bit later on the instrumentation changes around a bit as we get to the pre-drop lines, and soon we get this wonderful rhythm that gives off a bit of a “Daybreaker Boogie” vibe, but this one is short-lived as we return to the lyrics again. Soon enough we get two changes. First, we get another pre-drop, but then we get something unexpected in yet another verse but with another instrumental. Next up is my absolute favorite part of the entire song: They give us a little intro for the guitar solo, and this might be the most simple yet genius solo intro I have ever heard! After the solo the vocals and the old instrumental resume immediately. As the outro we get one more drop and a semi open ending to the whole flirting endeavour. Let’s see if she actually calls tomorrow!

This track was quite a fun one to go through! L-Train has got some more music on Oceansong for us with his track “Into the Deep (Escape of the Hippogriffs)“, so be sure to check out that one as well!

Proofread once again by the one and only theCANderson!

[P@D] TCB – Forever Is Nothing | Future Bass

(TCB has evolved this track over the years! The Orignal here! And the VIP remix here!)
(DrakeEmberHeart and ExplodingPonyToast co-writes this article for HMH)
I admit that I came very late to the party when TCB was starting to make noise in the fandom. Heck, back in 2015-2016, I didn’t know about the music scene too much. Much less was I in the fandom. The magic that TCB was only starting to make back then when “Tanks for the memories” aired in season five. Notably, you take a step back as you listen to the original, then listen to the VIP released three years later. You hear the difference. In the mixing, composition, and dynamic use of Dashe’s vocal chops from “I’ll Fly, ” you also notice the evolution of TCB’s famous deep bass and harmonic manipulation to the melodies getting better.

Songbird Choir – Firelight Dance | World Music

I love it when a character from the show gets some fandom love, especially one that got comparatively less screen time! This track is focused on Mistmane, and let me tell you, it’s packed with creativity and fantastic music! The music itself is very unique, and a blast to listen to; catchy bass drum and traditional Asian music, and some piano towards the end all mix together perfectly to make a great song!

[P@D] Blackened Blue – Down Below | Metalcore

My buddy Blackened I like to say, is an all-around musician who, if you pay close attention, has a knack for blending all rock and metal styles for a gateway of the story he is trying to tell. The emotion of a lost pony at sea in this Metalcore typhoon on P@D: Oceansong. The deep and darkest parts of the deep equestrian oceanic are places that no creature dares goes. Even the Seaponies dare not go there! Blackened blends, Metal, Hard, and a tad bit of classic rock elements to tell this story of the pony facing the end of the line with his shipmates already gone. Or soo it seems. His lyrics dive into the emotion of fight for survival, and man does his screams hammer the desperation! The melodies pull you that way until “a friend in the darkest hour” comes into play. The Salor, at the moment of death, is saved! Not to die drowning that day, a group of sea ponies who seen the ship go down from the sky as hippogriffs dove in to make the save! But grimly, he only survivor as the song seems to come across. Blackened sure has grown in taking his skill in making excellent metal and added this skill to his name. Great stuff. As s always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.

Vylet Pony – I Was Afraid (feat. Chi Chi & Briakitten) (SpinScissor Bootleg Remix) | Nu-Disco


(Listen to Vylet’s original here!)
So it has been established that Vylet Ponys stuff is unique in mixing and composes her music. It is one of the most significant factors in why she stands out besides making a complete package story that runs with albums.
I have to imagine that got to be a real task to remix her music into something that fits. Enter SpinScissors a-go at this. Now I never knew about the electronic genre of disco, but it got some style with the vocal chops mixture of Vylets lyrics with this groovy bumping bass and rhythm that pays just the right sound to compliment Vylets track. It’s pretty neat, and it stands out. Please have a listen. As always, This Qilin asks you to judge for yourself!
