Nyancat380 – Depressed | Alternate Electronic

Nyan has always had some interesting and fun tracks and this no exception! A nice expansive melody that slips around constantly opens the track, trying to hold itself together as it builds. The multiple drops however are a different animal all together! Its hard for me to describe from percussive focused hard hitting energy to shuffling DnB style drops with a healthy sprinkling of power chords, you can feel the swing in mood and raw emotion and they do an excellent job switching between sad, and angry. If you’re looking for something a little different, you’ve found it!

Agents of Discord & Reverbrony – Chimera (RIEL Remix) | Complextro

Now this is an interesting one. RIEL has taken Agent of Discord’s and Reverbrony’s song ‘Chimera’ and flipped it on its head! A more in your face, foreboding spectacle of gritty synthesis melds nicely with the original melodies. A lot of switch ups in the rhythm plus a pulsing bassline and ominous atmosphere really sells this as a unique take on the original and I couldn’t be happier for it!

[P@D] Hoofy – Shattered Gems VIP | Riddim/Psytrance

Hoofy is back with a heavy hitting VIP of their already great track, ‘Shattered Gems’! This one infuses the already dirty song with even filthier basses and gives off a hell of a lot of energy, especially by the time the second half rolls around, switching things up with an energetic psytrance twist that blends perfectly with the rest of the track. A stellar tune and it deserves its spot as a pre-release for Ponies At Dawn’s newest album: Ignite, which just so happens to be available now!

Daniel Ingram – Celestia’s Ballad (Snow Swirl Remix) | Chillout / Future Garage

 

Snow Swirl has done something really nice here with Celestia’s Ballad. Its a very spacey and airy take on a classic by combining elements of chillout and future garage. The result being something very soothing to the soul with a nice peppering of soulful grit. An excellent job and I’m excited to see where this artist goes from here!

[PVCF] PrinceWhateverer & Jyc Row – Nightmare Night (Covering Glaze & Mic The Microphone) (2019) | Symphonic Metal

This brings a smile to my face. Prince & Jyc came together for this redux of the cult classic Nightmare Night and has vastly improved from the original cover back in 2011! Jyc’s orchestral and choir elements intertwined with Prince’s vocals and skill on the guitar go hand and hand for this piece with powerful chords, ominous bravado and that sweet, sweet melody, this one is quite a treat!
(even if its over a month late but you didn’t hear that from me)
This song is available as part of Ponyville Ciderfest’s 2019 Official Convention Album.

TCB – NOTHING IS FOREVER (2019) | Future Bass

TCB pours a lot of emotion into this rendition of NOTHING IS FOREVER. A very reflective and melancholic piece filled with a myriad of vocal chops and a tense, but heart warming atmosphere. The second half of the song makes a great use of complex arpeggios and a solid break beat and is an excellent switch up that still carries its vibe and message and is a unique and wonderful track!
