In season with summer, PegasYs introduces a remix of a piece from his duo with Faulty. PegasYs has utilized the house elements of the original to create a commending glitch-hop tune, with an emphasis on hop! The original consists of a fantastically dubious artist’s name and romantic vocal work from ThatMusicBrony. PegasYs’s remix ushers in the heftiest of wubs along with the sunny addition of steel drums. After the aforementioned wubs, the tune slowly reverberates and bit-crushes itself out of existence, leaving you with the temptation of the replay button.
Dark starts this sick and speedy new tune from DAϟH. Spick and span from the fairly recent compilation album Corequestria Vol 1: Ponyville is this speedcore tune, containing mind-bending fast rhythms and voice samples from Discord that truly connects this piece with its title. This collage of chaos, this frenzied assembly, this hoard of discord, will surely set ablaze any rave floor you play it for! Also, I’m extremely excited to see the future of Corequestria Vol 1: Ponyville!
A V.I.P. so clean you could eat off of it! There’s nothing more intriguing in a piece like Facts and Figures than a traditional techno kick and the “Think Break.” And the curiosity gradually pays off with the filtered introduction of a smooth legato synth playing melodies in minor. The saw bass and vocal samples combine to create a truly beautiful and ominous atmosphere. And what better follow-up to that atmosphere is there than heavy gabber kicks, an industrial snare, and the sweet varnish of glitches? Then there exists an awesome implementation of vocals from The Failure Song to take you back to the goosebump-giving atmosphere of the introduction. This is honestly one of the best tracks I’ve heard from Spikey Wikey, and who could expect any less from a track included in the great compilation album Corequestria Vol 1: Ponyville?
Somber and dark begins this ballad from the community veterans Mathematicus & And the Rainfall. Minimal, ambient noises and the beautiful raw sound of one guitar then acts as the backbone of the first verse. This seven-minute masterpiece consists of endlessly progressive and complex collages of electronic sounds characterized by a beat-heavy rhythm and refreshing modulations. And not to mention, this piece has one of the most poetic and understated outros I’ve ever listened to. Along with that, this song is a part of the compilation album The Rest of Our Lives. All proceeds gained from the album go toward coronavirus relief.
With an ambient and grand curtain-raiser as the intro, this neurohop track titled Null is a tasteful manifestation of rhythm and neuro-styled sound design. Slow and heavy is the name of the game in the presence of MEQA’s progressions, and before the last beat-heavy section of this piece is an ambiance that is as sonically intimidating as it is suspenseful. This opus also befittingly has a spot on the great Ponies at Dawn album, Ignite! Enjoy!
With lush and spacious piano chords, this drum and bass track by Tw3Lv3 instantly gratifies the decision of listening. Along with being a track on the collaborative album The Rest of Our Lives, this song contains a monumentally atmospheric interlude to soothe you into the desire to keep listening before the excitement given by the thunderous sub-basses and rhythmic, invigorating drums leads you into another smooth few minutes of drums and bass. A reverberated lead synth appropriately leads out this eight-minute adventure that is titled Upgrades.
Freewave, as a collaborator in the album “The Rest of Our Lives”, brings you an ambient piece titled Twilight Sleeps Loudly. These three minutes of tranquility are remindful of the ambient heritage of Brian Eno. The zen in this piece comes from huge swells combined with pillows of noise, accompanied by echos of string sections. Proceeds from the album in which this piece is a soothsayer in go to coronavirus relief.
Jazzy electric piano chords, ambient synths, neuro-inspired basses, and some of the heaviest drums of the century! This is a combination of elements I feel as though I could talk about for hours and hours, for this is Feryl DeMarco’s new track Livid. The absolute best things are short, sweet, and don’t come often, like the enjoyment of a piece of candy. This electronic masterpiece fits that bill better than any song I’ve listened to in the past month or so. The recent album Ponies at Dawn: Ignite features this song, which I feel it absolutely deserves its place. Music like this is where music is headed. Thank you so much, Feryl DeMarco!
Fans of ’80s and ’90s hard rock music will not be uncomfortable listening to Acouste Wholenote’s new rock piece named Fashionably Late. Basing its lore off of Rarity, this song sports sharp drums acting as the foundation for the classic duo of bass and distorted guitar to riff its groovy motifs everywhere. In even further embracement of the hard rock spirit, there is a hauntingly melodic guitar solo introduced at the heights of this song. If there’s anything good that this lockdown has brought us, it’s music like this!
Sometimes musicians underestimate the power of influence and inspiration. Influence and inspiration may be the most powerful elements in music overall. Influence most definitely drove this reimagining of Alex S.’s song “Party with Pinkie” by D3LTA, as proven by the recreation of the vocals and transcription of the composition by D3LTA’s own hand. With the skeleton of Alex S.’s song, D3LTA has crafted two refreshing drops with recent dubstep influences. This beautiful remix shows true dedication!
