Luna Jax – Wonderful (feat. 4EverfreeBrony) | Acoustic

We all need to feel validation from time to time, and Luna Jax is no exception. His desire for approval is clearly shown through this piece, and even though he knows we all love his music, that voice of doubt can bother even the most talented of us. I’m sure many of us can relate to these lyrics, and the feelings behind them. 4EverFreeBrony is the owner of the fingers responsible for that amazing guitar work, you can recognise his unique style quite easily. Well done to both of you, keep up the amazing (and truly wonderful)  work!


Daniel Ingram – A True True Friend (NeverLastStanding Remix) | House

Always with much emotion brought forth by both the bright melodies and the musician’s feelings (explained in the description and comment), this remix of Daniel Ingram’s memorable A True, True Friend sets itself in a lineage of happy and lovely show song remixes from NeverLastStanding, and overwhelms us once again as memories of special times and feelings for the ponies all gather in one divine moment of passion and love…


DoTheDaringDew – DoTheDaringDew EP | Rock

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 11 July 2018.

DoTheDaringDew’s been steadily improving as a musician lately, and another step on that path is this new EP of 5 new tracks, each showcasing what he can do fairly well. His instrumental abilities are certainly a bit more advanced than his vocals, but it’s still a great package of fun with tracks about Daring Do, Starlight Glimmer and more.


Royalpony – Equestrian Rave | Happy Hardcore

Ponysphere & Secret Metal – Apples & Moonshine | Classic Rock

Those who expected Hard Rock or Heavy Metal in this new release from the crazy duo will be surprised! Going for a full Classic Rock twist, “Moonshinesphere” Ponysphere and Secret “Drunk” Metal decided to depict another everyday scene at Sweet Apple Acres in delightful musical ways. May it be apple liquor/schnaps or moonshine, I’m sure the Apple family put some of these sweet apples to extra good use, and nothing beats a good drink at the end of a day’s hard work! Take an invigorating drink along Applejack, Big Mac, Moonshinesphere and Drunken Metal, and reminisce about the gold times of old for rock music as you taste the incredible solos and riffs of this mighty tune. To savor without moderation! No, I wasn’t talking about the moonshine… or was I? hic


FlutterRage – Open Up Your Eyes (Covering Daniel Ingram) | Metal

The momentous Open Up Your Eyes from the movie will never stop inspiring pony musicians to remix it or cover it, and once again it’s time to experience the movie’s masterpiece anew, with FlutterRage’s Metal cover! Bringing a heavy and epic rearrangement, as well as powerful screams for the vocals, it expresses Tempest’s feelings with the power of rock music, and it’s such a wonderful treat!


Daniel Ingram – You’ll Play Your Part (Dj Gestap’s Part One Remix) | Trance

From the musician who made that memorable remix of Raise This Barn that is still among my favorite pony tracks ever, get a gorgeous and mystical take on You’ll Play Your Part in pure Dj Gestap Trance style. Let us partake in both blissful nostalgia and ever-present pony passion along the enthralling remix!


Ditherer & MC-Arch- Another Inch Away | Rap / Hip Hop

Hey y’all, trapstar extraordinaire J. Free here. Only partially kidding, but I’m very honored to say I am now part of Horse Music Herald’s guest writing staff. Hope to bring you some awesome horse tunes in future posts!

For my first writeup, I’ll be sticking in my comfort zone with a rap song, this time from the prolific MC-Arch and the youngblood Ditherer. Ditherer only just started releasing fandom music and his new album, which this song appears on, is a whopping 40 tracks long. The gloomy Shiloh Dynasty-sampling beat services the rapping quite well on this song. Ditherer raps, from a detached POV, of a man who just can’t seem to let go of a fictional girl (safe to assume it’s a pony!) and longs for a real-life version of her. The verse has a pretty amusing Ticket Master reference, too!  Ditherer’s use of internal and multisyllabic rhymes and his great imagery are on full display in this verse.

MC-Arch’s verse, on the other hand, while still as emotional as Ditherer’s and echoing similar sentiments to the first verse’s protagonist, is much more personal and much less vague as to the identity of the pony. It’s not surprising to find it’s about Fluttershy, but this is the first time Arch has ever sounded so impassioned (especially in the second half of his verse) and vulnerable rapping about his love for her and what he feels whenever she’s on his mind. Arch’s distinct stream-of-consciousness-type flow along with his fiery delivery are the real stars here.

If you’re into emotional raps and can relate to having a real adoration for your favorite pony, there is definitely something to like here!


Daniel Ingram – The Spectacle (UndreamedPanic & mikuma Remix) | Bass House

NB: This was originally poste on Equestria Daily on 6 July 2018.

It’s been a long time coming, but Panic and mikuma have now released this awesome remix of The Spectacle that combines both of their styles in an interesting way. Smooth bass house vibes permeate through the first half of the track, with great use of the vocals, before the second half gets a bit bouncier.
