PrinceWhateverer & Jalmaan – Enemy Undefined (Club Mix) | Drum & Bass

Okay, everypony, today we return once more to “Enemy Undefined”, this time the club mix! I already did an article for the original (I call the Version on PrinceWhateverer’s channel the “original” here for lack of a better term) which you can find here, so I’m not going to talk too much about lyrics. Since this is a club mix, the DnB is much more center stage and the metal elements by Prince take more of a backseat as the DnB beat did in the original. This really gives it the perfect club combination: The EDM parts are center stage but the song doesn’t completely abandon the metal elements, resulting in a mix that is perfect to jump up and down to, either in the club or at home!

Nicolas Dominique – Coffee Rush | Drum & Bass

Today we return once more to Nicolas Dominique, and he brings us this jolly DnB song. Coffee Rush is an upbeat, fast DnB track that will make you dance! The track starts out at express pace with a lovely DnB melody that is quickly joined by all sorts of elements, and before you really notice it the song begins building up. After some time another synth joins in and gives the song a lovely melody. Later an additional synth joins and takes center stage for a lovely progression, and, believe it or not, the track is still building up. Still later the artist teases us with a two minute build up before the track changes and becomes calmer, seemingly finally slowing down. Most of the song’s elements subside, but then most of them gradually return, and the song speeds up again as we return once more to the fully built arrangement which persists until the outro where the track calms down once again.

Brownie – Out On My Own (Covering Daniel Ingram) | Metal

Hey friend! Do you like CMC songs, but you get bummed out by their traditional orchestral arrangements? Well, never fear! Brownie has taken Apple Bloom’s sad soliloquy and given it a most triumphant metal twist! Brownie stays faithful to the original lyrics, giving them both a great melodic rock delivery and providing some satisfying screams as backing vocals to give the track a crunchy metal edge. The song opens with a full-on guitar attack backed by some great percussion, and after sprinkling in a little softer guitar melody, the video kicks in. The vocals sync up really well with Apple Bloom’s mouth, which definitely adds to the fun. As an added bonus, there is some fantastic guitar work and rock percussion that continues on after the original video ends, and there is a hilarious bonus message at the very end that almost made me fall out of my chair laughing. Overall, a most excellent effort by one of the stalwarts of horse rock!

Altius Volantis – Spark of Friendship | Chillout

Today we’ve got ourselves a lovely Chillout track by the amazing Altius Volantis. The song starts out with a lovely, calm melody that is soon joined by an equally relaxed synth and even more. As the song progresses most of these elements subside, and in the end the gentle melody carries us away on the night breeze. This is another song I really recommend for just lying down and putting on repeat as you just, well, chill out, as the calming beat is perfect for that. There are no big beat fireworks here, just the gentle reassurance that the spark of friendship will carry you through anything.

Arabesque Sympony – One More Day (Covering Daniel Ingram) | Synth Rock

Ok, everypony, today we have another song by Arabesque Sympony! This time he brings us a fantastic Rock cover of “One More Day” from the Christmas special “The Best Gift Ever”. The lyrics are kept pretty much the same as the original and are sung by Arabesque himself, so let’s get to the bottom of this piece! The song opens with the original melody remade by Arabesque as he sings along with his guitar accompanied by traditional folk strings. As he sings the instrumental builds up, and for a brief passage the instrumental takes center stage while Arabesque’s voice is more in the background, which makes for an amazing change. There is a brief instrumental section as the song builds up to the chorus, which has a very bass-forward rock delivery. After that the instrumental calms down a bit for a slower part, and we actually get a synth-y folk beat in the background. As we leave the slower part the instrumental builds up again until it peaks in the chorus. After the chorus the instrumental and the lyrics actually interchange, and the song ends on some lovely piano notes.

Huge thanks to my friend thecanderson for proofreading.

SeriousDamir – The Frost | Eurobeat

Did this Hearth’s Warming Eve come up a little bit short for you? Are you determined to cling to holiday cheer until you are absolutely certain that you have nothing further to fear from Windigos? Well, then might I suggest giving this excellent holiday-themed Eurobeat tune by SeriousDamir a spin or five! The fantastic instrumental opening sets the mood with both a wonderful sleigh bell rhythm and bell melody before the synth and drums kick in and launch the song into a blast of holiday cheer. SeriousDamir intended for this song to be an uplifting affair with the message that even though life can sometimes get you down you will always have friends who will help pick you back up, and the lyrics and vocals fit that theme perfectly. There are some really nice changes throughout the song where the Eurobeat melody is carried by the bells, keys, guitar, or vibraphone, and the artist also creates a nice choir effect heading into the chorus that compliments the main vocals really well. It’s all paired with a lovely lyric video complete with falling snow animation, so pour another glass cider and remember that good friends and holiday cheer will always be there for you!
