Ponytronic’s newest release is a wubbly, haunting composition of absolute force. It’s packed with bass and lovely cutoff effects. An assortment of DnB-like sounds kick in about halfway, while the broad, windy ones persist throughout. At every part, I’m struck by the vastness of the sound; it really does sound like a science fiction track.
Totalspark gives us Tectonic, a wonderfully bouncy track. With bass all over the place, energetic synths, and a cowbell to boot, it’s a real fun ride. The art is dead on – that’s exactly what I was doing when I listened to this lovely little song.
Tripon’s remix of Hay Tea’s haunting piece is an exemplary piece of dark D&B. A creeping music box’s melody stands out amongst the fast, sinister drums and bass. The gorgeous album art perfectly conveys the mood of unknown danger.
Here’s some cheerful, upbeat, bouncy house from SeyN! In honor of hitting 200 subs, he’s put together this lovely progressive gem. It’s super danceable, and the vocal echoes fit perfectly in with the rest of the song. This one’s sure to get your hooves moving and your head bouncing.
Radiarc’s contribution to Ponies at Dawn Anthology is a haunting, melodic composition. It’s about Fluttershy’s realization that “I’m the monster”, and it conveys her regret perfect. A complex morass of sounds engulf the listener with their majestic coldness in this superb work.
I fell in love with Metapony’s absolutely fantastic remix of Notion’s already awesome track in the first five seconds. It starts off packing energy, joy, and vibrance. But then the lyrics kick in about Starlight (who’s still best pony) and her new ascension to alicornhood. And that’s when the song switches from “awesome” to “absolutely fantastic”!
Royalpony’s latest release shows us once again that any song can become hardstyle with some imagination! You’re In My Head Like a Catchy Song was probably my favorite song from season 7. Royalpony puts a wonderful hardstyle spin on it, making it very danceable – something I never thought I’d say about You’re In My Head Like a Catchy Song.
Einarx’s Invaders was an absolutely epic surprise. I haven’t encountered Shadow Music before this, but I’m completely taken by his excellent take on Invaders! It opens with a bit of static, something I love. Once the song proper starts, a myriad collection of eerie ambient effects combine for a downright awesome mix.
Jyc Row’s latest release is an Egypt-themed instrumental composition about the Sphinx of our recent Daring Do episode. With his signature compositional precision and memorable melodies, Jyc executes a wonderful homage to Southern Equestria’s mysteries!
Rockin’Brony’s cover of this fandom classic is truly spectacular. The original was already a powerful, moving composition, but this cover applied a certain extra energy to it. Rockin’Brony, as his name implies, excels at this sort of music.
