Scraton – Mares In Black | Dubstep

Scraton has finally returned to the land of Equestria with their new EP Mares In Black. This song is deeply melodic and heavy hitting, with very crisp and atmospheric mixing. The vocal sampling is on point as well and takes me back to the “Skream Me Some More” days, and in general this track is an astonishing nostalgia trip and to me at least I hear huge nods to “Big in Da Clubs”. Scraton is pulling out all the stops for this Seven track EP and is definitely worth your time!

[P@D] Michael Picher – Beyond the Fourth Wall | Orchestral / Soundtrack

Beyond the Fourth Wall is a masterpiece right from the start! From the hauntingly beautiful melodies to the foreboding atmospheres portrayed, Picher sets the tone perfectly for what could only be the perils and mysteries that of which realms beyond the Fourth Wall can bestow. There is a very cinematic and grand feel to the whole piece and keeps getting me thinking “There is something bigger out there. But what?”
This track is available as part of Ponies at Dawn Enigma.

[P@D] EnsionD – Wide Skies (feat. Francis Vace) | Progressive House

EnsionD always brings something nice to the table, and this is no exception. Re-imagined from their first major hit, Open Skies this take on the classic has buttery smooth progression and Francis‘s signature vocals; though something I wouldn’t expect add a new perspective and life and together they form what I’d say is a very worthy take on the classic!
This track is available as part of Ponies at Dawn Enigma.

Daniel Ingram – Luna’s Future (MirroredReality Remix) | Drum & Bass / Acoustic

Luna’s Future is always a fun song to see remixed, and MirroredReality does something a little different here. Setting the scene of desolation with the wind blowing over silence, the song begins with some acoustic guitars playing a fun, yet ominous tune. However, things don’t take long to pick up as Aloma Steele’s signature vocals come in with a blast of energetic, yet not “in your face” percussion and melody, allowing you to focus more on the story and as it progressively builds and wanes, always keeping a nice balance of tension and flow. All in all, this is a nice refreshing take on one of my favourite songs in the series and I’m glad I had the chance to hear it!

Vylet Pony – Whisper of Her Soul | Synthpop / Breaks

Now this is special. The energy and emotions Vylet conveys is absolutely stunning and the syncopated rhythm and retro-esque feel really brings some life to this story. It opens on a very soothing note and boy, does it ever grow on you in an unexpected way! This song in particular  is actually one that was commissioned by Draco Schaeffer, and tells a story of Brash and Golden’s relationship “in an age and universe where Equestria’s sewers are just as colourful as the streets” which personally I think is a very interesting concept for a story and its world. I’m really impressed in how this commission turned out and am very curious to see what else is brought to the table!

[P@D] Einarx – Guardian (Reprise) | Eastern Folk

From the Ponies at Dawn charity album, Recollections, Einarx has given us a reprise of Guardian. Unlike their VIP of the song back in 2017, this takes everything from before and flips it on its head! All in all we’ve been given a very soothing turn from the hard hitters of yesteryear, with a heavily ethnic feel mixed with subtle electronic elements and a foreboding atmosphere that will instantly take you on an ethereal journey from the Far-East!

Voltex Pixel – We are the One (feat. Princess Twilight Sparkle) | Melodic Dubstep

Now this is a breath of fresh air. Voltex Pixel brings the feel of something old but something new with “We are the One” gives us a taste of intricate melodic vocals from Twilight Sparkle chopped up and creatively spliced throughout the song as well as as some really nice piano melodies and saw chords that remind me of the days back in 2011 where EDM as a whole had that “signature” sound which still holds a special place in my heart. I see some great things coming from this artist in the future 🙂

Vylet Pony – Cataclysm (ft. Scraton) | Drumstep

Premiering their upcoming album Homeward, Vylet gives us one heck of a heavy hitter before it’s formally released on January 25th. Vylet and Scraton are no strangers to sound design and it shows in the opening seconds, and only gets better from there! Blending an atmospheric soundscape with complex synthesis there is a sense of urgency in the air and it is all leading up to something HUGE!

[ASOS] MrMehster – Holi (Festival of Colours) | Psytrance / Electro

From the recent A State of Sugar: Ice Cream album Mehster brings us “Holi” and a bright and vibrant festival of colours it is! Psytrance is always an interesting bout of fun and there is a healthy dose of variation that even pull from various genres throughout to truly bring out a festival like feel in the song. One thing I have to note especially are the vocals. They bring a sense of life into the fold and overall, this song has something for everyone! 🙂
