[PF] NeighGative_ x loophoof – Twice Upon a Kingdom | Trance

Today I bring to you another exclusive track from the first full length Pony Family album, “Busy Having Fun“. While the first exclusive track went in more of an acapella direction, this one is the very definition of an upbeat EDM masterpiece! For this track NeighGative_ (also known as Brilliant Venture) and loophoof combined their talents for an awesome Trance banger that would make even Armin van Buuren blush. At five minutes long this track is on the longer end, but it doesn’t get boring for a second with its creative melody and lovely vocal chops.

Algo at All – Life is Better With You (2021 Rework) | Alternative Electronic

It’s always wonderful to see a musician grow and improve their craft, and this song is such a great example of that. Algo at All has done an amazing job of completely reworking their original track, a fun, lighthearted tune featuring great vocal chops from everyone’s favorite party pony and her song “Pinkie’s Present“. This reworked version opens with some gentle synths and pulsing, distorted bass, setting up a light melody before the vocal chops drift and pulse into the mix. The processed vocals pair amazingly with the arrangement, and when the laidback percussion kicks in and the melody comes to the foreground the listening experience is like getting a warm hug. There are some great chiptune vibes throughout the track as the arrangement keeps morphing into new, delightful forms that make me feel simultaneously nostalgic and hopeful for the future, fitting for a track that embraces the past while moving ever forward. What a lovely present.

SpinScissor – Never Everfree | Downtempo

Do you miss music from the heydays of EDM? xD Well, you’re in luck, because so does SpinScissor!  Opening with a great synth and bass combo, the super processed arrangement is soon joined by appropriately processed vocals that drift through the menacing mist of the Everfree Forest as the protagonists flee from unknown terror. The track lopes along as if it’s stalking its subjects, creating tension through a menacing bassline accompanied by wonderful synth melodies that swirl and climb dramatically. The song ends on a lighter note, but the frightened ponies aren’t out of the woods yet! Do they make it safely to their destination, or are they lost forever to the incomprehensible creatures lurking in the darkness? All I know is that I enjoyed this story, and I wouldn’t mind some more!

TCB – Just Downed Another Cider, Boutta Ghost Ride The ’02 Ranger (feat. GeekBrony) | Future Bass

Inspiration truly can come from everywhere. TCB Built this fantastic tune around a sample that GeekBrony posted to Twitter, and it’s astounding that a 15 second clip posted on Twitter would spawn such an epic tune! The song emerges from the ether, whirring to life with some spacey and textured synths, slowly coalescing until the remixed sample kicks in, and then it hits with a wagonload of TCB goodness. The glitches are as scrumptious as cider, and the vocal chops from “Applejack’s Lullaby” mix beautifully with the synth melody. Then the strings kick in with some impactful drum beats adding a wonderful emotional weight as they are combined with a longer chop. The build up to the drop is delightfully subtle, but the drop is full-on, adding a new, high synth melody that ups the emotional amplitude. The cider really starts to hit after the drop as the arrangement thins out and distorts like a bad day at a carnival. Kudos to the artists for this fantastic creative effort!

[PF] Dandelion – The Alicorn Amulet | Drum & Bass

This dark and groovy drum & bass track from Dandelion is coming at you from the latest Pony Family album Busy Having Fun! If you haven’t downloaded the album yet, then definitely head here and get it! The nicely textured bass rumbles to life and soon pairs with ambient synths and terrific D&B percussion to form a moody and unsettling arrangement. A high synth joins in for classic ominous effect, and there’s some really nice movement in the track overall that evokes burbling dark power and corruption. The high synth bridge and switched up arrangement towards the end is a great moment that pushes the narrative of the song and ensures that the listener never gets too comfortable before the track rumbles to its dark conclusion.

Darksoma – Let Me Be A Hero (Power of the Crystal) | Soundtrack

There’s nothing quite like an intensely emotional track with an awesome backstory! Opening with somber strings and piano, the song (also featuring art by the musician!) kicks into high gear with the addition of some skittering, tinkling percussion and sharp strings. There are some really nice effects applied to the instruments that give the song depth and ambiance, and the pairing of dark piano with the strings creates a pleasing intensity. Overall, there’s a really strong OST vibe running throughout the track, and, paired with the fantastic description, it’s easy to get immersed in this tense moment for the character. I’ll definitely be looking forward to more of this story and accompanying music!

Nyancat380 – Clear My Head | Glitch-Hop

What a cool song and lyrics video! The video opens with the viewer flying down a train track with some terrific Rarity art (that Nyancat380 made themself!) in the foreground with a clean but spicy arrangement of synths and percussion that create a classic hip hop vibe in a totally original way. The melancholy atmosphere is reinforced by the lyrics, which tell an unhappy story of Rarity struggling with self-doubt. Things really start to feel out of control when the tempo picks up, and the fantastic instrumental section after the drop is full of glitchy goodness and ends with a perfect vocal chop. All of the song’s elements are then fantastically spliced together in the following section in a way that fits the theme of the song so well. The song finishes dramatically, a fitting end to the psychological storm.
