Nyancat380 continues building their “Methodic Ways to Break a Mind” album with this fantastic track! The song has an AMAZING groove thanks to its fusion of Latin instrumentation and EDM elements. It kicks off with the sounds of a crowded club before launching into a brisk beat and horns melody. Then it jumps into the main bass groove and the vocals (heck yeah for the awesome lyric video!), and all the accompanying percussion and effects build the arrangement beautifully. The call and response between the vocals and horns heading into the chorus really reinforces the awesome club vibe. Then a breakdown after the second verse pares the arrangement down to a bit of melody and spare percussion which sets up the eventual resumption of the vocals and horns beautifully. The “Cool AF Spin Scissor Solo!” (love the description) adds another dynamic element to the track, and Spin Scissor’s guitar supports the track to the end. The song is ridiculously groovy, dynamic, and polished, and I can’t wait for the rest of the album and pieces of the story! Bonus: there’s also an acapella version of the track if you want to get your remix on!
Are you ready for the best rave in all Ponyville? Well, our friend Koron Korak is bringing us this totally awesome hardstyle banger, featuring the one and only DJ Scales and Tail! (a.k.a Spike the Dragon). Together, they’re inviting us to dance and celebrate all night long! The track starts with a punchy distorted kick that hits you right in the face, and some brutal vocal chops from tonight’s host. As the song progresses, an entire symphony of leads and synths come in to make the party even harder! The whole track will make you move and groove your pony body to the rapid rhythm of the beat. Although this song is a bit short, it’s a fantastic taste of what a pony rave should sound like. The only thing left to say is that this track is definitely SPIKED! (P.S. congrats for the 1k bro <3)
Ok, who is ready for a colorful trip to the 90’s trance (with Ponies!)? In that case, prepare yourself for this cute and punchy song by Violin Melody. This track starts with a powerful kick and a very cool rhythm full of all kinds of percussion. From the beginning we can feel the whole vibe of this song–suddenly (as if the sky was opening) we can hear some cool vocal chops from our favorite pony, Fluttershy, accompanied by a cute arp as well. This song is full of nostalgic feelings, and I can easily imagine this song being played in a rave full of ponies and pegasi dancing together! After an energetic and gritty lead that makes a good contrast with the little arp, we get a little break, and it’s like the song is breathing before heading higher up in the sky. Then it releases an explosion of color with more vocal chops and a very inspiring and nostalgic chord progression. I’m doing my best, but I can’t fully describe the awesomeness of this song! Violin Melody always provides us with professional quality songs that resonate with our souls, and this one is no exception, so check it out! I’m sure you will find a pleasant surprise with this track!
This song was inspired in part by the love of the ASoS community and Heartsong’s appreciation for the support that they have received through its members, and that love shines beautifully throughout this song! The opening strings, brass, and xylophone meld together so sweetly as Heartsong’s OC, Violet Aria, sings to plants to help them grow. It pairs wonderfully with the lovely background art, which glows with sunny brilliance. The lyrical nature of the song allows the listener to drift along on the combined voice of the instruments as the progression takes you on a life-affirming stroll through the fields. It’s so sweet and satisfying and a wonderful contribution to the ASoS: Eclair album!
Who does not miss that unique style of the cool and old internet times? well, Inspired in the good glamour of SoGreatandPowerful’s PMVs, My best fella, SpinScissor delivered us this magnific and nostalgic track about the coolest pony in all of ponyville. You guessed it! Rainbow Dash. The track begins with some rhodes that for just a few moments, resemble the of so iconic main theme of the series, man, you know this gonna be epic. Then and suddenly, we hear some great vocal chops accompanied with cool and glitchy breaks and a gritty bassline. The whole track is a vibe, full with all kinds of wonders, some fresh piano chords and a truly beautiful message at the end from SpinScissor. Please, do not hesitate and listen to this 20% cooler song!
And now for something a bit different! For this remix Koron Korak recreates the original melody and then offsets it from the vocals, creating what sounds like a conversation between the singer and the arrangement. The arrangement itself has a really cool vibe to it that channels the warm, summery feeling of the background art. The chorus pumps up the arrangement and introduces a jazzy saxophone melody, an unexpected but awesome choice. It’s definitely the instrumental that drives this song, and the vocals, though left largely unaltered, function more like another instrument. The bridge adds a great chippy synth that soars along with the vocals before the saxophone takes over at the end and steals the show. This is a thorough, thoughtful exploration and reimagining of the original, and the effort is very much appreciated.
Power Note brings us this incredible and completely emotional track about Twilight Sparkle and her duty to be the new princess in equestria! The song unfolds with a somewhat melancholic and delicate piano, an arpeggio is heard, accompanying the nostalgic chords that the piano is marking. Little by little more instruments are introduced including spirited drums and a synthesizer. After a brief pause where only the piano remains for a moment, we get a slow buildup that persists as if it represents an unreachable past. Then we hit the exciting, nostalgic drop, conveying a feeling of epic melancholy, with an aggressive dubstep bass, vocal chops from Twilight’s voice , powerful leads, energizing battery and an enveloping melody. The whole track reminds me a lot of the songs of the golden era of the bronies, and is a truly faithful ode to the show – so please check it out!
It’s always interesting hearing everyone’s approach to these remixes. Seventh Element takes the original and pushes up the tempo, creating a greater sense of urgency. The opening keys combine with new synths, percussion, and effects to create a reverby, bubbly beginning, and then the strings kick in as the song builds into the chorus. The arrangement feels like it’s winding up for a big emotional punch, but instead we get a bubbly, peppy chorus that bounces merrily along. It’s a great combination, and the song flows along really nicely with some fun tweaks after the bridge that give it this great, chippy vibe without getting crunchy. It all makes for a lively pick-me-up of the tune that keeps the positive vibes of the original while doing its own thing.
First ArtAttack created this terrific song with the goal of capturing Fluttershy’s capability for being both gently nurturing and forcefully protective. Then the Original VIP updated the arrangement and added Metajoker vocals to make the song that much more epic and impactful. Then Assertive Fluttershy created their Fix that reworked the song to create a UK Hardcore version for My Little Remix War V. Now Aventrix has created their own version that takes the hardcore mix and polishes it up. The tempo, key, and EQ have been adjusted, and new synths, drums, and FX create a super clean sound. You’d never know that this track was made on a phone using audio from YouTube. It sounds great, it’s a wonderful link to horse music history, and there’s a higher quality free download link in the description that I would recommend for full audio goodness. Get in there and create some new nostalgia!
