Daniel Ingram – A Kirin Tale (Faulty Remix) | Progressive House

Prog house guru Faulty’s new remix continues the flood of A Kirin Tale remixes, featuring his signature style. The backing guitars in the verses work as a great counter to the piano and Autumn Blaze’s vocal, and the drop is as good a house as you’re going to hear out of the fandom, with some emotional chords and the overall tune has a squeaky-clean mix. Another quality tune in the upper echelon of Season 8 remixes!

[P@D] StealingShad3z – Red Spinach | Pop-Punk

This Green Day-inspired tune from the versatile StealingShad3z is definitely one to bang your head to! With some tight instrumentation and lyrics about the lonesome Wallflower Blush, it’s no wonder Shad3z went with this sound for the track, as the theme is absolutely perfect for it. Any fans of ’90s punk should definitely get a kick out of this one!
This track is available as part of Ponies at Dawn Enigma.

[P@D] AJ Young – Get Schooled | Dubstep

One of the most talented dubstep producers in the fandom, AJ Young’s brand of heaviness is something truly unique, and he brings it in spades for one of his two entries on Enigma. His use of pony chops here creates an incredibly catchy lead, his squelchy sound design is impeccable, and his drops are wonderfully intense and high tempo, far more than the dubstep you may be used to. This also comes off his new Witchcraft & Wubbery EP, releasing October 12, which is available for pre-order here!

Vylet Pony – The Magic of Mischief (feat. Chi-Chi) | Pop Rock

An incredible collaboration between Vylet and Chi-Chi, the danceable groove on this song is incredible! A Discord-themed song, both vocalist’s performances (and that instrumental!) are fiery, especially a rare reach into the lower range from Chi-Chi! With plentiful references to the lord of chaos in the lyrics, a tightly-edited music video, and an impossibly catchy chorus, this is one of the standouts from Glitter, which you can purchase here!

[P@D] PegasYs – Vaporwave Future | Glitch-Hop

One of my personal favorite tunes from Enigma, the “vaporwave” in the title on this song doesn’t necessarily describe its genre, but more its aesthetic, taking cues from the seminal vaporwave record Far Side Virtual. This tune features quite disorienting textures throughout, but it works to its favor, as it never ceases to be intriguing. Familiar chiptunes and reese basses are present here, but also a whole host of other crazy sound design and compositional techniques throughout its movements.

PrinceWhateverer – Solidarity (In This Together) | Metal

Prince’s new tune, while not about the show directly, is a powerful tune about staying together as a community, even past the end of G4. Prince’s usual level of polish and heaviness is present here, with lyrics bound to give anyone chills, a well-used monologue from Twilight before the apparently arena rock-inspired solo, and some expertly executed crowd vocals, contributed by a whole laundry list of folks (listed in the video’s description)!

[P@D] 174UDSI – Somnambula | House

Yet another banger off Enigma, 174UDSI comes through with one of his best and hardest-hitting tracks yet! Taking inspiration from the titular pony and from Eastern music in general, the atmosphere and creative percussion are sure to take any listener by surprise. It’s also a total banger of a house tune with an insanely catchy melody to boot! Congrats on another P@D feature, UDSI!

[P@D] down-74×9. – We | Deathstep

It’s not often a newcomer is able to so thoroughly impress as down-74×9. has here! With some eerie backing atmosphere and excellent use of the propaganda speaker samples from the season 5 premiere, We is one of the heaviest bass tunes this fandom’s ever seen and deathstep afficionados will certainly dig this one, as it’s not a genre we hear in the fandom too often (not to discount Syzy, of course!). This first song is definitely deserving of the P@D and Cider Party features!

[P@D] Totalspark – What Once Was (feat. Synthis) | Chillout

One of a few re-imaginings on Enigma, this version of Sparky’s original Itchigotchi-featuring tune feels more fully realized and heartfelt (though Itchigotchi is very subtly sampled here). Synthis could not have been a better choice to feature on the song and his verse feels as soulful as his other works. This version feels far less rudimentary, with some very creative percussion throughout and an excellent intro and coda. One of my personal favorites from the hyper-talented Totalspark to date!
