Electro, hard trance, whatever you want to call it, this collab between Flyghtning and Flutter Rex is pretty cool. It has this great combination of a dark soundscape, which is only enhanced by the triplets. That deep bass drives most of the song, but it occasionally breaks down into an arp that switches the whole thing into a major key all of a sudden. I love that sort of play between major and minor roots in the same key, nice work by both of these guys!
Kelvin continues his recent Applejack-themed acoustic streak (in fact, it’s all part of an upcoming album) with this more melancholic piece about wanting to go back to the past and simply remain there.
Rusty’s already a very experimental musician, but this song goes a little deeper and a little weirder into that sort of production technique. The general feel of the song makes me think it could fit in to some kind of horror musical, but it’s Rusty’s sampling techniques that bring out the experimentation. The middle section of the song also breaks down a lot of convention and adds another different, eerier sound to the song.
Oh hey, new musician! Fascinatin here has made a neat synthpop track with some great melodic elements and nice big chords. There’s some room for improvement, but it’s a really promising start for a new musician to make something as good as this!
He’s back! Dr. Somepony’s first upload in over a year focuses on Tempest Shadow, and is a sort of progressive piece. The song constantly switches up the beat, the riffs, even the tempo, all while keeping a dark yet energetic feel, fitting for the character it represents.
Rarity Advocate’s little piece for Tavi here is a solemn and mellow duet for piano and, of course, cello. It goes through various stages, the different sounds of despair broken up by a brief moment of happiness halfway through, before the dark, deep bass notes of the piano toll loudly. So yeah, kinda sad.
Done as a commission, Vylet’s switched up his recent style a bit more to swing this track more into a rock/pop direction. As the name suggests, it plays along the same theme as the song from The Perfect Pear with a smoother feel to it.
NLS has been trying his hand out at Orchestral compositions a lot in recent months, and this one comes from the latest Ponies At Dawn album. He’s also written about the song at great length in the description and comments better than I could ever speculate, so check that out for some EXTREME detail.
174UDSI’s taken his classic trance/house style and collabed with Wubcake to make their own version of Open Up Your Eyes. Saw chord stabs and vocal stutters are the standout parts of this track for me.
Dynamite’s back at it again in their own element. There’s nobody that does techno quite like Grizzly, and hopefully now that there’s new episode material we can expect to see more music from them!
