Voodoo Pup – Be My Only | Blues / Jazz

The most recent pre-release from Voodoo Pup’s Chrysalis concept album is abundant with sneaky, sleazy vibes, perfectly descriptive of the changeling queen herself. The track’s tone is set by a scheming, sassy bassline and carried by Dangerous Moonlight’s honeyed voice. Listeners beware – this track is sure to “trace its claws over your heart!”

Tw3Lv3 – time flies. | Ambient

Tw3lv3’s had a string of releases this month, but I wanted to feature this one in particular as it’s always nice to see a bit of ambient music. Over its course, time flies ebbs and flows like the tide between deep bass with cinematic drums and ethereal pads, interspersed with birdsong. It’s incredibly relaxing, and BL1NKY sums it up better than me in a simple comment on the video: “song for make me sleep”. Go listen if you want it for make sleep too…

Skyshard (and friends) – Beyond the Sky and Sea | Cinematic Orchestra

For this awesome track Skyshard got together with some amazing vocalists to make a track dedicated to the Hippogriffs from the 2017 MLP Movie. The combination of cinematic tunes and African influences together with all these amazing voices makes for an enjoyable song and despite its length it never gets boring!

[P@D] TCB – CLOSE MY EYES, SEE THE THINGS THAT I WILL NEVER BE | Future / Colour Bass

Ponies at Dawn: Zenith saw a handful of outstanding tracks from TCB, with “CLOSE MY EYES” being no exception. A year and a bit in the making, this tumultuous piece saw its creator through some of his darkest hours, but cements in history some of his most important decisions. (You can read more about the track’s lore in its YouTube description!) Featuring influence from a plethora of musical styles, spicy bass design, gorgeous orchestral elements, and hard-hitting lyrics built from show quips, this track takes the listener on a journey bursting with sonic color.

SDreamExplorerS – Neverwake | Metal

Today I have the pleasure to once again bring you an amazing metal track courtesy of the amazing Soul Strings aka SDreamExplorerS! But let’s cut down on the chatter and get straight to the song! This song was actually written all the way back in 2009 but only really picked up again last year, but it nevertheless sounds very fresh with a fun melody, amazing drums and all-round wonderful instrumentation. For all you metalheads out there this slightly-over-seven-minute-long track is perfect to just put on repeat and listen to all day long, and even us non-metalheads will get a kick out of the creative melodies and amazing riffs.
