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!
This is a nice blast from the past cast in a new light by Tripon! Its an interesting take on a song that completely flips the mood on end and makes excellent use of sound design and vocal manipulation and creates tension in all the right ways. This is the song that everypony should know!
Luna’s Future has always been a favourite of mine from the world of Equestria, and sweet Celestia, Etherium has done something truly magical with it. Right from the start we are bombarded with a flurry of tension and emotion from a masterful use of choruses and an atmosphere that feels like a “blanket of eternal snow” to put it into words. This one gave me chills from beginning to end, and it is one you definitely don’t want to miss.
For someone relatively new, I’m shocked at how deep this feels. Fascinatin did a great job conveying Twilight’s goal of setting an example for all of Equestria as the Princess of Friendship and the emotions that are being evoked are just incredible! If there is one thing that stands out to me, the creative rhythms thrown in by the drums and I’ve always been a sucker for legato synth leads. I expect great things to come from this and can’t wait to hear whats next! How about you?
Riovelk is one of those artists I really want to see gain more traction. Memories of You tells the tale of when Celestia Banished her Sister to the moon with some stellar vocals and a very catchy mix throughout that exudes those glorious 80s vibes complete with complex melodies and power chords and it takes me back to “the good ol’ days” of Super Ponybeat and just love how they breathe new life into an aspiring genre such as this.
Rusty is at it again! This song tells us about his realization of developing what is known as “Imposter Syndrome”; which is where you feel that anything good in your life, whether it be your actions or things you just find good in general, are all due to manipulation, luck, or someone else’s work. Rusty does a great job at telling this tale with infectious and emotional vocal work, that I don’t hear very often and there are plenty of developments through out to keep you coming back for more. Electro Swing is hard to do right. The melody and groove in this gives off such a great vibe and the creative ways that Rusty went about producing this, is just incredible! You do not want to pass this one up!
