In what might be his most extreme tune thus far, Cascade really feels like Tripon is showcasing the limits of his production and composition abilities. Going along with Out of Limit 4‘s theme of time, Tripon’s piece alludes to Starlight’s time-altering spells used in the Season 5 finale. The build is long and haunting (as Tripon has shown he’s excellent at creating) and the drop is perhaps what you might expect from Tripon, but cranked up to 11. The tune is frantic, heavily utilizes samples, and is certainly one of the most unique fandom songs in recent memory. Big ups to noise.horse for consistently bringing out the weirdest from musicians (you can grab the Out of Limit 4 compilation this song is featured on here)!
Night Blaze, who’s been composing pony songs for a few years now, has come through with an orchestral piece that does a very good job at differentiating itself from the pack. It is themed around a time in Equestria’s past where Discord (and actual discord) ruled over Equestria. The repetition in the percussion actually works in the piece’s favor and the guitar work and tone on display is excellent. The way Night Blaze sets the tone for a dystopian Equestrian past is amazing!
The ever-creative Vylet Pony blesses us with yet another tune, this one off her recent album Love Letters: Colourless, that defies convention yet maintains her signature style (well, one of her many signature styles). This one begins as a low-key hip hop tune featuring some pleasant synth work before cranking it up to 11 and, eventually, morphing into a full-on jazz song with authentic basses, pianos, and vocals very befitting of the style. Also, Dash vocal chops! I’ll always people to check out any Vylet song, and this one is no different!
Ever inspired by the OG Eurobeat Brony, Rod Steven has recently taken it upon himself to start developing his own style of Eurobeat. Just a few days ago, he blessed us with a remix of the classic Apples to the Core, which seems like it would be ripe for a Eurobeat remix! This one is about what you’d expect from a solid pony Eurobeat remix: an extremely dancey beat, infectious melodies in the breaks between the choruses and verses, and high energy throughout, so don’t miss out on this one!
The veteran musician Light Assassin has graced us with yet another hard-hitting tune! This time, the theme appears to be that of a pony demon terrorizing everywhere it goes. This should be a treat for any fans of synthwave, especially synthwave with a distinct groove to it, as all the elements come together excellently for a banger!
Up-and-comer Tw3Lv3 has been consistently delivering a variety of dope tunes lately and, for the first Equinity album Stellar, he links up with Doodled to deliver a fresh summer anthem. Doodled, of course, has some of the most unique flows and lyrical stylings in the fandom and they are fully on display here. The production, as probably anticipated, is very summery. The trap drums from Tw3Lv3 are very well done and the psytrance featured in the hook fits the tone perfectly. Definitely a highlight from the first Equinity release!
Reverbrony comes back with a tune that’s extremely fun to jam to! Compositionally, there’s not too much here, as Reverb describes, it’s just a fun song with some awesome riffs. Not to mention, the percussion on here is incredibly unique for a metal jam and mixed superbly. However, of course, the stars of the show are the various riffs. They all seem to end exactly when they’re supposed to, showcasing a great ability in building anticipation and surprise. Cut this one on if you’re on a high speed drive or just feeling great about yourself!
This piece from the prolific composer N4ghtwolf is quite melancholy, yet empowering…not the easiest emotions to mix, but he has done it with this piece! Admittedly, I’m not familiar with the MLP comics, nor this storyline, but the description has a good summation. Based on that, the lyrics detail the interaction between the corrupted King Sombra and his first love interest and they work wonderfully how simply they are. The track is nothing short of heart-pounding with its heavy percussion and tonal shifts, so for any pony orchestral fans, N4ghtwolf has come through once again!
The insanely versatile UndreamedPanic returns with a cut centered around the themes of friendship and, of course, the student six! Clearly, Panic has put a much love in the creation of this tune, if the description is to be believed, and it’s evident in the chill-inducingly catchy melodies featured throughout the song. The vocal chops in the song are subtle and soft yet perfectly befitting, and each section in the song feels fresh. I personally also appreciate his ability to put the “progress” in “progressive house,” as the progression in this song is simple but effective. Here’s to UndreamedPanic, learning, and friendship in whatever form it may take!
Here we have a remix of the defining brony song. Uh oh, you might think. It starts unsuspectingly enough, just as The Living Tombstone’s remix does. However, once the vocals fade out for the first time, one of Chang31ing’s signature tasty basses creeps in and the buildup results in an infectious breakdown befitting any club. It’s extremely hard to make the classics sound fresh, but Chang31ing has definitely discredited that with this short but sweet banger!
