I always have high expectations for an Exiark track but Through Time And Space is something all its own! Easily one of my favourite tracks from the latest Ponies @ Dawn Album; Enigma this one will definitely take you for a journey and you can feel the tension and chaos that a thousand years on the moon would bring about and the way the tempos and rhythms shuffle and morph, it’s truly awe-inspiring!
Viricide always brings something unique to the table and “Uality” is no exception! Its got that sharp wonky feel I’ve come to know and love with a deep atmospheric vibe to it. In her own words, “Imagine a binary star system. Two orbs of light orbiting around each other. Without one, the other cannot go on.” Its a rather intriguing way to describe this track as it sets the mood and really gets you thinking and fits really well with the theme of ‘Yet Sightless’ in my opinion; As it follows Eleanor on her journey to find self knowledge and love.
Stratch is back at it again! But with something a little more laid back this time. Immediately we are hit with a ton of atmosphere and some wonderful piano stabs and the infectious vocal chops and chords set the stage for the night and all around it’s a nice change of pace to and definitely worth a listen!
Here we have a wonderful tune from the recent A State of Sugar Bubblegum album! Vegá does an excellent job conveying a deep and atmospheric piece and everything from the arpeggios to the glides and everything in between is melting pot and a real treat! Sit back, relax and enjoy this relaxing tune from above the clouds.
This is a nice surprise from Antares, who appears to be new to the MLP scene. This is a a very relaxing and atmospheric piece about Luna. The song itself really makes you think almost as if in retrospect about all of the hardships our Princess has faced and all of the guilt she holds on to as the world goes by around her. At least; That is how I see it. The artist leaves much of the tune up for interpretation which is quite nice in fact. What do you take away from it?
This one is a nice blast from the past! Soundnix re-imagines a classic by JayB with some really, REALLY creative ideas that span the entire 6 minutes and it constantly evolves and brings something new to the mix. Amazing textures and layers, switch ups and chords… I just love everything about this remix and you are definitely missing out if you haven’t already taken a listen yourself!
Fresh from the A State of Sugar: Bubblegum Album BlackIceMusic gives us this funky and fresh gem. Melbourne bounce is something we could always use more of and they nailed the feel perfectly. There is quite a bit going on here and the sprinkling of vocal chops and samples alternating from “sweet to sour” really brings out the sass while keeping things cute and all in all is a great piece to sample from the album.
I always love seeing remixes of this song to see what people do with it as there is just so much untapped potential to the song itself and Evgeniy has done a great job fleshing out the atmosphere and adding quite a lot to the tune itself, creating a dark yet soothing trance take with some notable nods to Tiesto’s style, it makes for quite a fun listen!
Here we have an uplifting song by New Reverian, paying tribute to “Anthropology”; a fanfic by JasonTheHuman this one is about the crossover of the pony and human civilizations and has that “awaiting discovery” feel to it. It’s hard to put into words when describing the atmosphere in this track. The orchestral arrangements are answered by a euphoric assortment of synths and help to paint this picture and I just love how they all come together.
Grizzly has always been the first musician I think of when Techno gets brought up, and this is no exception. A nice raw progression coupled with a clever use of samples thrown in the mix and all dedicated to the parasite queen we all know and love. This one is a trip to say the least and one worth taking!
