Welcome one and all to a truly auspicious event: The latest installment in the My Little Remix series! For those that don’t know (which included me before this album), MLR began in 2011 when the pony music scene was absolutely exploding as a way of pulling artists together into a more cohesive community. There have been nine albums featuring some of the best talent of their respective times, and though the creative mayhem of the early days has come and gone, the songs that those artists and others who took up the horse music banner produced left an indelible impression on the fandom music landscape. What a wonderful delight, then, that the time-honored tradition of remixing has returned for yet another glorious compilation of fandom talent! This album is a really fantastic musical journey full of lovingly produced music, and it is my absolute pleasure to introduce you to its track along with my co-conspirator, Simon. So go download the album, kick back, and join us in this beautiful appreciation of horse music achievement! Also, how great is it that the tracks are labeled “befriends”? Whomever came up with that deserves a hearty huzzah! Alright, let’s get into it!
Okay, everypony, I’m so happy that I can finally say this: I present to you the first song of the Pony Family album, “Busy Having Fun“! This absolute beauty is by the amazing Avery, and yes, this is a six and a half minute song about ponies and the fandom!
This album is packed with emotion, vibes, bops and bangers, and great songs, and everything else one would need for a brilliant album! The music covers a lot of ground, from quick, energetic hard-hitting electronic songs, like Love & Tolerate, G1GGL3, and Tartarus, to a more chill and trance-y sound, like in tracks like Intermittence and Interlude. The different tracks mix well together, and give the album a unique feel and sound. With seven epic tracks on here, there’s something that everypony can enjoy. I absolutely loved this album, and I’m sure you will as well!
The vibes! This track honestly surprised me: it’s simultaneously chill and energetic! Inspired by the fantastic art piece in the video, it starts with rain sound effects as the music builds up, which sets the tone as nice and chill. But once the music picks up, it gets more energetic, and I couldn’t help but tap my foot to it! These two elements compliment each other very well, and make for a great song!
This track is a great example of one of my favorite types of pony music! It’s a short and sweet happy hardcore song focusing on the Princess of Friendship herself, Twilight, and it has that classic pony song sound/vibe that I just love, complete with Twilight voice samples from the show (and a few anime ones too)! Overall, it’s a wonderful song and fun to listen to!
OH, OH! Check this piece out, my bronies. Something very, very different for your tastes. A track with more of a worldly and cultural feel. Yes, yes, come on in and listen to this wonderous tale from the Sands of Somnambula! Yes, you know the name. The pony of hope became a legend and pillar of Equestria. But what about her home, its culture. This is a taste of it! Would you please sit down and listen to these melodies that let you feel the energy of ancient land. It is filled with themes and elements that are sure to please it with its exotic percussion, mythic choirs, and mindbending composition. It’s a real pleasure that Kallo Skull has put together! As always, This Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
This track has such good timing and good vibes this song is! Right on time, the summer, With more and more bronies getting the vaccine for Gen 5, is not too far away, and the return of in-person pony conventions! It’s summer again like bronies want it! Koron Korak treats us to this delightful and sunny track on a bright and warm day for The Mane 6 and their pals. It has a smooth, light feeling with the melodies with these uplifting violin notes that Koron is known so well for. The track flows with the sunny and fun vibe of a day at the beach or a convention with your friends! Give Koron some love for this happy piece! As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself!
Someone tell SpinScissor that he sure knows how to escalate the feels in his music! As this starts, you feel this deep fear and loathing building up as Sci-Twi sings, This emotional ride inside the anxious mind of Twilight only goes deeper once that drop hits. This chaotic mix of hardcore and future bass symbols the deep conflict inside her mind clashing with midnight sparkle and dreading she will come out and go on a path of destruction! The Experimental elements of this track fit the theme of this remix. You will be feeling emotional along with Sci-Twi too! As always, This Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
Who would have thought than an animated show featuring colorful ponies could and would give rise to a gifted and inspiring community that thrives on love, creativity, and the magic of friendship? Well, to quote my fellow writer, DrakeEmberHeart, once again, “art inspires art,” and MLP has indeed inspired countless artists across the globe to create a bottomless well of artistic creativity that includes visual art and animation, short stories and full-fledged novels, fun games, and amazing musical compositions.
(Listen to the Original here!) You know, my friends, I’ve noticed a trend this year of musicians going back and giving their early works an excellent polish and remixing! This track was done in 2017 by Yuru the Redstone Brony. It shows a musician’s desire to use improved skills and give old music the right feeling! This song now has more boom to it! We’ve always been behind Twilight’s growth as a character to the end of the series. The more upbeat vibe and that sweet keyboard, The vibe that grows of twilight sparkle maturing more and more as elements get more profound as the song goes along. Yeah, this VIP does the message justice! As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
