I never really got into Hands Up much before but it’s a pretty fun genre to listen to, and Confetti is no exception to that. With uplifting melodies to fit the classic 4-chord progression, it’s a perfect fit for everyone’s favourite party queen and a great addition to A State Of Sugar’s latest release!
Vylet’s continuing his annual tradition of remaking his 2012(!) track No Matter What, this time making it in the cute indie/electronic pop style that he’s really developed into his own sound in recent years. As in a few previous editions, it also includes Namii’s vocals, and I’m sure we can expect many more versions of these to come!

Not content with just one genre, Notion’s put his spin on Tempest’s famous solo piece with a blend of house and future bass. While it’s a shame we still can’t get properly isolated vocals for the track, the concept behind this remix is really interesting and a pretty unique take on the song!
Last year, Jyc released some music that he’d composed for the (possibly now defunct) MLP-themed game Friendship is Epic. This is part of the soundtrack, a simple and slightly more minimal piece fit for the title screen of the game.
Tripon’s gone and taken one of Lectro Dub’s oldies from 2012 and turned it into a neat half-time Neuro thing! Okay, that’s not exactly a great description on my part, but it’s pretty unique and difficult to sum up in a short sentence, so go listen to it instead!
There’s still time to vote for May’s Top Pony Songs, but the voting closes on the 6th this time around, so there’s just one day left to vote. Check out Günz’s May playlist for some ideas.
Holy moly, I haven’t heard anything like this in the brony fandom since…well ever! It’s a complete reharmonisation of My Past Is Not Today, adapted to fit acoustic guitars playing plenty of maj7 chords and a softer style of vocals. It’s just really relaxing to listen to, and so unique, you just have to check it out!
So Vylet does jazz now. To be honest, that shouldn’t be too surprising. Not only is he a man of many talents, but this song seems to have a similar mood and timbre to his chillout indie pop stuff, but just on a different set of instruments.
Solo piano pieces are always interesting, and they come in so many different styles too! This one from Lunar Drift has some really interesting chords; the sustained notes lingering between changes create some wonderful dissonance and the key seems to be constantly shifting, an ever-changing illusion, if you will…
The Japanese brony community always seems to largely go under my radar, then every once in a while I see something really sweet and unique like this. I can’t say that Yanamosuda’s re-imagining of Evil Enchantress resembles the original much at all – it’s a complete transformation done very creatively!
