Ice Angel’s remix of Depth pt. II begins with the lush tones of piano and Koa’s voice reverberating to create an ethereal space. But don’t let that fool you—as the drums and orchestra come in, it all builds up to when the electrifying drop hits. Here, the heavier dub rhythms blend nicely with the ethereal pads, still floating effortlessly above. The track then interludes with the sound of rainfall and xylophone-like bells before a four-on-the-floor bass drum delivers us to the track’s intense climax.
MC-Arch and PrinceWhateverer’s first track of the new year is a collaboration powerhouse featuring not only these two legends, but also Drummershy, BlackenedBlue, SnugBugVa, and Namii! The track begins with mellow e-piano vibes and the incredible rapping talent of MC-Arch. Then a minute in, the electric guitars kick in, along with a couple of chiptune-esque synths and a drum feature, creating an incredible cross-genre texture unique to this song. My favorite bit though is the duet between MC-Arch and PrinceWhateverer singing, “You deserve love.” It’s simply gorgeous and a fantastic message to everypony listening!
This track will be featured on the third installment of “You got me, I go us”, so make sure to check that out when it drops later this year.
Wandering Artist is back again with another track made specifically for one of Pony Town’s newest updates: The Library Update. In a similar fashion to their previous Pony Town tracks, this song aims to bring the idea and atmosphere of a quiet library with its soft instrumentation selection and slower tempo. Right out of the gate, the simple melody of woodwind & acoustic guitar fills you with a sense of calm and security, which is only heightened as the track progresses. This song is perfect for anyone who wants to cozy up by the fire with a good book or write the final three pages of their university thesis.
EveryDayDashie’s high-energy remix of Flawless from Friendship is Magic will have you dancing on your hooves for sure! With its ridiculously catchy synth line between verses, and its vocal chop swell before dropping into the final chorus, there’s plenty to grab your attention. In addition to featuring the Mane 6 vocals on top of a fresh beat, Dashie also blends in Pipp Petal’s “Show me what you got!” from Tell Your Tale’s “It’s The Pony Hip Hop,” delivering this delightful cross-generation remix.
TM, is still pony baybee… (just like how Dre is still D.R.E.) after 12 years of this fandom going on. I think that by itself, is a beautiful statement; and with that statement, Toby brings us a epic D&B track featuring Rainbow Dash to celebrate! The energy just keeps flowing doesn’t it? Whether you want it to or not, whether you KNOW it or not, hell, whether you feel it or not. Let this track through its festive synths, electronics and power-boosting beat, show you that even if you feel down, or sad, or whatever, the pone will ALWAYS be with you, always.
rawrity’s first release of 2023 is a nostalgic tale of an interaction with a certain somepony who left a lasting impression, yet whose name the speaker cannot recall (I wonder who that pony could be xD). The track is laced with Pinkie Pie vocal chops, and when the instrumentation drops out to just piano and vocals near the end, it’ll leave you breathless. Throughout, rawrity’s vocal performance captures the longing to be reunited; perhaps you can help them out?
Not content with just one small remix, Midnight Wave has taken another spin on Tw3Lv3’s super collab from 2020. And clearly one genre wasn’t enough either! As it transitions from verse to drop, this remix picks up the pace from a perky house beat and falls into a supercharged drum & bass section. It’s a great use of tempo changes and worth a listen if you typically enjoy either genre!
This track, is truly a journey – and not just a journey, an MLP journey! EveryDayDashie has united with Bramble and Bolt to bring forward this track and in EVERY, SINGLE, DIRECTION IT GOES, there’s something burning BRIGHTLY throughout the music. Something beautiful… something warm… something, magical! Vocally the harmonics guide each other to bring forward a wondrous symphony, which is than also covered by phenomenal violins and bramble’s legendary clarinet work. It all compliments each other so well, I can’t bring myself to write for this tune without having the words for it. You did it guys, you are the VERY first individuals who I write an article for and than have no words to say for it… it’s THAT good! Well done! Thank you for this… special tune.
Soul’s back again! Similar to another release from 2022, Neversleep sees her revisiting an older composition, reviving it with new life and the added expertise of nearly another decade of musicianship! The slow-burning atmospheric introduction brings in new elements and harmonies one by one, like a descent into a sleepless night where further, heavier riffs await you…
It is always wonderful to write for orchestral songs, and here we are with another great orchestral piece from none other than the absolute orchestra unit; Ethan Toavs! And this time he didn’t just provide us with a tribute track to a Rarity, it’s a G3 Rarity track. And I think that is epic! Rarity’s character has through the ages always been splendid and as wondrous as her colour pallet. You can be sure, that the same goes for G3! And through this wholesome and joyful orchestral piece you get a nice input of how majestic this pony truly is!
