Quicksilver has been on a hot streak releasing tracks over the last month and this time he revisits the time he teamed up with Hackd for something extra special! Showmare is about Trixie in her debut episode, with Quicksilver and Hackd switching off on vocal parts. The track features the upbeat, punk-style feel you know Quicksilver for with a sweet solo in the middle and excellent drums and guitars throughout.
Quicksilver keeps the hits rolling with another fun track, and this time it is about Rarity’s punk hairdo from season 7. Quicksilver describes the emotional struggles Rarity faced having so much of her identity and public image lost to a bad hair mix-up. Fix My Head has all the traits of a classic 90s pop-punk hit: fast, fun guitars, a driving bass and moving percussion, and energetic vocals .
As a relatively new fandom producer, Lukas Vokrinek sure can orchestrate a big track! This song is a beautiful instrumental which builds on a sense of looming adversity. Black Magic makes great use of the lead violin as a tense, eerie mood setter, while the wind instruments in the orchestra help the song build into a big, intense piece. Each instrument fits very well together as written in this great composition that Vokrinek describes as a ” journey through knowledge and the struggles faced in order not to succumb to the lingering darkness”.
You should be excited about this release. 4everfreebrony has released a remastered version of The Pink Side of The Moon album and this track is the amazing new ending where after a big adventure, Pinkie finds everything she needed in her friends Right Here. The song begins softly, building through the verse before going into an extraordinary and uplifting chorus. From there the track takes off with electric guitar, rock beat, a phenomenal solo by The L-Train, and everything but the kitchen sink from 4everfreebrony’s arsenal of top-notch music production.
Ponytronic is still going strong, bringing us this excellent trance hit! Bygone is composed of several thematic sections, with each one managing to act as its own uplifting vibe. The track itself is adventurous and uses a solid drum beat to keep everything exciting. With some added psy elements, Ponytronic manages quite a feat by putting so much work into a very worthwhile track!
DoctorSympony is back at it with a quick track dedicated to everyone’s favorite mailmare. The song is a whimsical instrumental, written as a soundtrack to Derpy baking muffins. While Making Muffins starts out silly and laid back, it escalates into a crazy adventure – showcasing DoctorSympony’s creativity and humor. The song feels right at home as a piece of background music, doing so well in its role to set a vivid scene that you don’t need to physically see for you to feel it.
Quicksilver is an expert in creating awesome rock tracks and this time it is based off of a very beloved episode, A Royal Problem. “Night Shifts and Politics” is Luna’s vocal narrative of wanting to make the trade back for her job as the princess of the night instead of dealing with all the daytime politics. The track has great guitar work, a driving percussive beat, and all the elements for which we love the veteran rocker!
Quicksilver is back and rocking just as awesomely as ever! This time he brings us a great ska punk instrumental which trades off between high-octane punk sections and more mellowed out ska progressions. After being busy with college for the last year, the Luna Ticks veteran let’s us know that he is finally getting Caught Up! One of the rare ska musicians around, Quicksilver quickly reminds us why he is one of the best songwriters with a guitar in hand!
Relatively new DJ Whirly Tail knows how to make an uplifting remix, and his take on Dreamer’s Adieu is exactly as advertised! The track is fun and upbeat, making great use of the bass to establish the quicker tempo. Whirly also added in his own chilled out section in the middle featuring a grand piano over the synth for a few bars to really change up the track while still keeping the uplifting tone. Dreamer’s original synth tracks were very well composed and Whirly Tail knew a fun song when he saw it, making some great edits in order to play to those strengths!
BlueBrony always delivers with something that only he could, and Reborn is incredibly well put together and performed. The track takes the perspective of Sunset Shimmer and tackles the difficult concept of forgiveness from her own point of view. After a tense, paranoia-inducing intro, the song transitions into a beautiful and delicate piano piece and continues to expertly meld other musical styles throughout the piece. BlueBrony does a top-notch job at conveying the joy and almost relief that comes from e forgiveness and acceptance of her friends.
