Worlds collide in this song from Japkozjad as he steps from one genre into another. What starts as some orchestral sounds in a very relaxing mood ends up as his signature melodic house style, with a recurring motif tying the whole thing together in a short but sweet song. The concept also comes from a music raffle he hosted recently!
EveryDayDashie – A Bridlewood Paradise | Folk Orchestral
If “jungle” weren’t a breakbeat-infused genre, it might sounds something like this! Dashie takes a walk in the woods here with this rhythmically laid-back orchestral piece laden with some folky woodwind and string instruments carrying the melodies of the song. Perfect for a jaunty jungle adventure!

And heeeeeere we go with April’s results! As always, there’s a nice eclectic mix of genres and musicians in this month’s fan faves, so go check out which ones made the cut this time round!
Jyc Row – Sombra’s Empire Attacks! | Orchestral
Returning from a musical break, Jyc’s also breaking from his Infinite Eclipse series to bring us a song portraying the return of Sombra. It imagines a G4 movie where he returns to conquer Equestria, with this acting as the soundtrack for the trailer, evoking the same kind of excitement and tension from many a blockbuster! Check it out for some wonderfully cinematic orchestral music.

Elias Frost – Full Moon | Cinematic Orchestral
The king has returned! Elias Frost is back, not just with new music, but a whole new series. This Luna-themed composition draws upon the history of Old Equestria, drawing you in with soft piano and gentle strings before unleashing the might of full choral and orchestral sounds. Check it out and stay tuned to Elias’ channel for more releases from this series!
ALostCarolean – Midnight All Day Long | Darksynth
ALC returns here with another suspense-building, fear inducing, 80s-influenced banger. I’ve always thought certain genres like trance are very thematically suitable for Luna, but the darker side of synthwave is also proving very fitting for Nightmare Moon! The strings and organ sounds in the intro in particular are a great setup for a drop into a heavy-hitting song about the endless night.
