Daniel Ingram – Evil Enchantress (Yanamosuda’s House Arrange) | House

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!

SDreamExplorerS feat. Imit4tor – My Little Ponies Jingle (Dethklok parody) | Metal

And now for something completely different: What happens when you parodise a parody?

I’m not much of a metalhead, and not familiar with Dethklok and Metalocalypse, so going into this blind was…an odd experience, but at least I can say Imit4tor’s voice acting is on point! Oh, and Soul’s instrumentation is great as always too, so check it out if you’re into weird metal jingles.

Lycan Dese Beats – Beats 4 Everfree | Compilation Album | Multi-Genre

Three years ago, after running a successful radio show about brony music for several months, Lycan got a bunch of musicians to pitch in some songs to make a compilation album featuring them. Fast forward to now, and this annual album is now in its 4th edition with the release of Beats 4 Everfree. The primary difference this time round is that the album is dedicated to Everfree Northwest, for which Lycan is the musical coordinator this year, and the funds raised from the album sales will go to EFNW’s chosen charity, the Washington Autism Alliance & Advocacy. 14 tracks from a group of consistently solid musicians and producers take this album through all sorts of genres – electronic to orchestral – so there’s something in here for everyone’s tastes!

Beats 4 Everfree is available to download for any given price from the Lycan Dese Beats Bandcamp.

UndreamedPanic – The Outdoors | Album | Electronic

I don’t think I could ever count the amount of music that Panic’s made. The sheer volume of music he’s contributed to fandom is incredible and it all just keeps getting better as he grows as a producer! The Outdoors sees him taking on some more poppy styles like Future Bass, a bit of Indie Pop influence, but also a good deal of Melodic Dubstep tracks too. Anyone who’s a fan of Panic’s usual songs, or any kind of mainstream-style electronic music is bound to enjoy this.

The Outdoors is available to purchase on UndreamedPanic’s Bandcamp.

[P@D] BroniKoni – Runaway Princess | Pop Rock

BroniKoni are without a doubt one of the best actual bands I’ve seen in the brony fandom, and I’m so happy to see them contribute to a Ponies At Dawn album! Runaway Princess starts with wonderful synth arps, fast-paced riffs and as it progresses, each instrument takes its turn at the forefront. From guitars to flute to piano (including a neat little 7/4 breakdown; odd time signatures are always appreciated) we get the whole band taking turns to shine, ending with a beautiful piano solo. This is one of three of their songs about the banishment of Luna, there’s more info in the video description. This song is available on Rebirth and also their debut album, Friendship Express!
