More trance from eksoka can only mean that good times are around the corner, and this time we’ve got a CMC-inspired piece from them about going on an adventure. There’s heaps of awesome classic trance-y vibes throughout the track with super cool use of vocal chops to add some atmosphere to the piece as it winds through some lovely melodies.

[ASOS] Single Purpose – It’s Ok | Drum & Bass

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 26 July 2018.

Single Purpose’s music seems to be pretty consistently cool, and this tune builds upon his initial releases on his channel in all the right ways. Melding together soft piano and strings with a consistent flow given through the percussion, there’s also a nice use of vocal samples to add some atmosphere.

[ASOS] MEQA – Lunar Republic | Glitch Hop

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 23 July 2018.

MEQA is a fairly new face on the scene, and this is their first solo pony tune after featuring on a track a few months ago with Quadrivia. It’s obvious right away that they know exactly what they’re doing though, with this awesome chilled out neuro-style glitch hop tune tribute to Luna – definitely an artist to keep an eye on.

[ASOS] MrMehster & Greyfade – Ujasiri | Psytrance

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 25 July 2018.

Mrmehster’s recent swing towards psytrance-style tunes has been really cool to see. A successor tune to Spirit Animal, it fits the vibes of that track whilst bringing on Greyfade as a collaborative producer. The track has an awesome combination of tribal atmosphere and upbeat synth sections that make cool use of some vocal chops and an interesting trap break.

Tripon – Titan | Neurofunk

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 23 July 2018.

Tripon’s Hop Skip & Jump Up EP release has definitely been a great example of the different types of drum & bass that he’s capable of throwing together, and this last track all about Tirek is a lot more towards the neuro end of things. With some excellent sound design and strong composition, it definitely suits Tirek’s menacing character.

DoTheDaringDew – DoTheDaringDew EP | Rock

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 11 July 2018.

DoTheDaringDew’s been steadily improving as a musician lately, and another step on that path is this new EP of 5 new tracks, each showcasing what he can do fairly well. His instrumental abilities are certainly a bit more advanced than his vocals, but it’s still a great package of fun with tracks about Daring Do, Starlight Glimmer and more.

Daniel Ingram – The Spectacle (UndreamedPanic & mikuma Remix) | Bass House

NB: This was originally poste on Equestria Daily on 6 July 2018.

It’s been a long time coming, but Panic and mikuma have now released this awesome remix of The Spectacle that combines both of their styles in an interesting way. Smooth bass house vibes permeate through the first half of the track, with great use of the vocals, before the second half gets a bit bouncier.
