Just the beginning plucks in this song should be enough for this dance tune to pull you into its dreamy nature. Soon afterward the reverie of an intro, there are offbeat basses and gated saws playing the song’s catchy main melody. And don’t miss out on the trancey interlude, characterized by a modulating synth backed by even more basses! It’s easy to find yourself hitting replay with this spatial dance piece, so don’t miss out!
Nasty Dreams is a dazzling bassline track coming from Seventh Element. This aggressive bassline comes packed with a funky intro, followed by 808 rims, dreamlike vocal samples, and hi-hats weaving themselves in and out of the garage-like kick and snare. And of course, the meat, the mountainous and sweeping lines of the deep saw bass backed by nasty subs provides its frenzied element. Don’t miss out on the interlude, a breakdown of sampled and harmonically stacked synths, until the final bars of the last drop, reminding you of this song’s rave-like nature.
SDreamExplorerS brings about an ever-explorative rock piece. With a catchy opening riff, it immediately gratifies clicking on. Then to be followed by the benevolent vocals and the stiffening yet ambient distorted guitars atop it all. This thorough Ponies at Dawn release does some very inventive stuff, with notes and chords occasionally jumping to unexpected places. If you’re looking for a refreshing yet familiar song, this’ll fit in your rotation like matching pieces of a puzzle.
Introduce a new and lively Glitch-Hop track by Voodoo into your rotation! Its two extremely complex, exuberant drops suit it for the floor. This glitchy Ponies At Dawn release has sound design so clean, you could eat your dinner off of it. And don’t forget about the dubiously altered vocal lines from the show. The song concludes with an elegant piano segment, a fittingly lush end to such an enlivening song.
Ahoy! A brand new remix of a classic from the definitive year of 2012 emerges! Odyssey Eurobeat and Pinkaboo vanguard a modern re-imagining of Hooves Up High by Silva Hound and Rina-Chan. This beaming remake includes the melodies and vocals of the original under shining new voices. And the drop encapsulates the spirit of the original under modern dubstep ideas. Frankly, with our community just past the end of Generation 4, I think you’ll find it very nostalgic.
Drift away with Too Taken’s remix of Start Again, perfect for any serene background. It incorporates the vocals of the original overtop the most cavernous drums and electric piano harmonies until a surprisingly nonchalant drop of bells and FM sounding synths. Glittered with jazzy chords, saxophones, and an electric piano solo near the end, it serves as a grace to the golden oldie that is the original. Wafting through time comes with ease with this colorful track on repeat.
This track is available as part of Ponies at Dawn Eternal.
Viricide Filly brings around a brand new and brilliantly experimental album named This Place Will Never Let Me Leave. Introduce yourself with the title track, a melodic exposition that shows to you the noisy ambitions and grainy invasions of the album. Stick around for the trance-like air and eerie vocal samples of Face Your Fears, You’ll Disappear and All As Small As You, the sinister, silent, and uncannily ambient finisher On the Other Side of the City, and the crunch of the melodies in Glacia Maxima. Eleanor’s Elegy, acting as my personal favorite on the album, incorporates intricate rhythms and piercingly melodic chords. Industrial influences run strong with this one, especially with the track climbingclimbingclimbingCLIMBING. Such influences make it very reminiscent of witch house. This album also includes a consistent narrative to it, shown by the artist’s description and naming. If you wish for a refreshing interpretation of house music, I’ve no doubt this album will satisfy any of those yearnings.

Lavender Harmony presents a new celestial DnB track, deservingly compiled on the A State of Sugar: Waffle compilation album. The frequencies contained in this rare Drumscape Library release include tense synth swells, watery piano hits, and shakingly harmonic sub-basses. With a foundation of swift but soft drums, this splattering, smashing, fluid DnB piece serves as a fantastic precursor to Lavender Harmony’s album Daydreams, queued for later this year.
From the new A State of Sugar compilation album comes a brand new DnB original. Familiarize yourself with a passively pleasuring exposition introducing you to the hefty neuro basses of this roller. Serene atmospheres are not lacking in this track either, with the clouds of ethereal pads abundant in the intro and outro. Decorated with vast reverbs and nippy drums, this piece won’t be out of place for any bass-manic electronic fans!
Equestria i Tiden is an extremely intriguing song incorporating both English and Swedish lyrics. With a prelude of pan flute and nylon guitar, the song sets itself up for a surprising change of pace. The drums barge in and the synths provide a shining change of atmosphere, then to go back to its origin of background noise and pan flute. And the end of the song provides one of the most captivating choruses that I have heard recently. No second will bore you with this riveting, stylish piece by Rusty!
