GhostXb is back at it with a sweet, chill out track! Still Here is a fun, laid back piece, utilizing a great fusion of different styles. The drums and synth bring a great, hip-hop beat as a foundation for smooth, delicious saxophone that keeps you movin’ along with the vibe. Great for when you need something to listen to or wanna dance while sitting in your chair, GhostXb did a fantastic job on this song!
Rounding out the 7 tracks he made for the developing game Friendship is Epic, Jyc Row gives us the boss theme for the Chrysalis battle. From the first measure, you know this song is going to be amazing because the violin starts strong with an intense riff. You can really feel the epic action without ever having a controller in your hands! The drums give a great war-feel to the beat and the other strings do well to accentuate the action in the level. With his always top-level composition skills, Jyc Row orchestrates a big, adventurous soundtrack you won’t wanna miss!
From the beautiful blue above, ArkticSkies brings us this excellent electronic track celebrating the vast brilliance or the air up high. Uptempo enough to evoke images of an aerial race, yet still pleasant enough to be fulfilling and easy-listening, Air Racing is an instant mood-booster. The pulsating synths give the song a vast, wide-open feel while keeping the track moving and fun. The strings give the track a light and airy feel, and finally the drums round out the piece by building and maintaining the well-controlled excitement.
The golden combination of Prince Whateverer and Sable Symphony join forces again to bring us this pony parody of Whitechapel’s The Saw Is the Law, this time with guest vocalist NRGPony. PW and friends dive into a heavier, angrier kind of metal to really emphasize the brutality of the changeling hive and way of life. As one would expect with this all-star lineup of collaborators, The Swarm is the Law is an incredible mix, consisting of heavy guitar-work, guttural vocals, and intense drumming.
Fresh off of Vylet’s new album, he and Sylver combine to make this 50s style instrumental track. Catching On is inspired by several different worldly influences and has a nice blend of a jazzy beat with Brazilian and Mediterranean instrumentation. Even with the upbeat tempo, the song has a very chilled out vibe to it – an impressive achievement befitting the talent of great producers like Vylet and Sylver!
This is another amazing 4everfreebrony song in addition to having an amazing backstory! Soft, with a fantastic acoustic picking pattern, Wandering Eyes is a peaceful ballad of an older sibling reflecting on their younger sister and her curious intuitions. Already a personal favorite of 4everfreebrony, he remastered this track at the request of an artist, Sea Maas – who agreed to provide the gorgeous cover art for the song. Calming and sentimental, this song is every bit as wonderful as we have come to expect from the fandom veteran!
Taking inspiration from a fantastic Cider Party track as well as paying tribute to his great friend, AppleBukker gives us this cunning, fun remix of Brilliant Venture’s Moved On. The original track utilized a synth which AB shrewdly recognized as a brilliant chiptune lead. This remix has the fantastic sound design of an 8-bit RPG battle soundtrack, and is made even better knowing that it meant so much to AppleBukker that he got to revisit his chiptune roots with a remix of his good buddy’s song. Pieces like this really hit home the fact that Friendship is Magic.
What an amazing surprise to have a new release from the long-time fandom great, Turquoise Splash! So Much Left to See is exactly as amazing as you would expect from someone who has been a big part of so many fandom hits over the years, featuring incredibly beautiful vocals and a gorgeous acoustic guitar. The track is a love song between Derpy and Doctor Whooves with Splash singing of how much better things are for the ponies to be together. It is difficult to listen to just once and that’s a fantastic quality to have in a song.
Reverbrony continues his rampage of great releases with this eerie instrumental. In a style that you do not hear from many other musicians, Reverbrony achieves his big-room rock sound while managing to create a piece that is both relaxing and perturbing at the same time. The slow tempo and repetitive guitar riff creates an ambience of piece while the empty whistling sound out of the stereo field injects a sense of anxiety into the track. The entire emotion of the track is unique in a way that you should really listen to in order to understand!
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.
