A new delightful release by Power Note aka Lorris, this cute DnB tune is showcasing the kind of melodic aspect that I love to hear in his works. Lead synths are complementing each other so well in the progression of this track, and the title Heavenly Sky is quite fitting considering the soothing and bright vibes!
4everfreebrony always seems to nail covers, and this one is no exception. Track 11 from Copycat is a cover of the Luna Jax original; 4efb’s take shows a bit more polish in terms of production, and runs at a slightly slower tempo. The guitars are soft yet rich, with the inclusion of a slide between the first chorus and second verse. His voice is perfect for this type of music, perfectly conveying Big Mac’s attitude towards his daily regimes. Once again, we have another piece of blissful rock!
If there was an award for catchiest song on Ponies at Dawn: Eternal, this would easily appear in the top 3. The 41st track see’s fractilx’s first appearance on the P@D catalogue since 2018’s Rebirth, and what a comeback it is. This song wastes no time getting started, giving us only an uplifting pad and glitchy drum samples before jumping right in. What follows is an intensely catchy trance track based around Spike yelling “NOOOOOO” alongside plenty of other vocal samples pulled from various other sources. Quick, bouncy and filled to the brim with samples, you’ll have a hard time getting this one out of your head.
Nightmare Night is over, yet the scares never end. Track 4 from Music for the Headless Horse III, Cynifree showcases their electronic wizardry with a creepy midtempo track based on Story of the Blanks! Joined by the low whirling bass is a creepy synthline that just screams “danger”, representing the game’s town full of blank flanks perfectly. The perfect soundtrack to running away from a dark forest.
This brings a smile to my face. Prince & Jyc came together for this redux of the cult classic Nightmare Night and has vastly improved from the original cover back in 2011! Jyc’s orchestral and choir elements intertwined with Prince’s vocals and skill on the guitar go hand and hand for this piece with powerful chords, ominous bravado and that sweet, sweet melody, this one is quite a treat!
(even if its over a month late but you didn’t hear that from me)
This song is available as part of Ponyville Ciderfest’s 2019 Official Convention Album.
Feryl DeMarco just keeps pumping tracks out! This one oozes electronic goodness, like it was plucked straight out of a movie or game soundtrack. The drums are powerful yet not overbearing and gives all the other elements – such as the soft and brooding synths and plenty of glitches to go around – to breathe. With the rate at which DeMarco’s uploading and creating new music, I think we can expect nothing but greatness in 2020!
Third track of Jyc Row’s Legion EP has been uploaded and stands out by its more devious and fright inducing nature. This time he partnered with fellow part-time orchestral producer Elias Frost, and indeed their styles blend admirably. A creative and slick orchestration is backed up by glitched out and distorted sounds. The level of professionalism throughout, in every layer of the piece, makes it sound as if coming out straight from the soundtrack of a horror film starring the utterly cunning Cozy Glow as the main villain.
We’ve got ourselves a treat here. Track 19 from the upcoming Queen of Misfits is a 10 minute long three-part pop track revolved around Trixie’s desire to be the center of attention, while also hiding her anxieties behind a metaphorical mask. On Your Knees is laid-back and features soft, glitzy synths alongside a simple yet powerful beat and Vylet’s beautiful voice. After fading out, the song transitions into an 80s inspired interlude with a piano and string combination, before jumping into The Moment, an uptempo segment reminiscent of early-mid 2000s trance. Seamlessly transitioning into the final segment, Thrill of the Fight, we hear more of Vylet’s typical style that comes full circle with its lyrical themes, borrowing the hook from On Your Knees and closing out with a synth solo and the familiar piano and string combo from earlier before fading out naturally. Queen of Misfits comes out on Hearth’s Warming Day, so be on the look out!
Get stacked ‘cuz you know the king is back…
MelodyBrony‘s grand debut song from April of this year is back with a fresh coat of paint. As is the case with the original, PrinceWhateverer takes lead vocals, with the rhythm section consisting of Drummershy and Luck Rock, as well as KriZzZ’s brilliant keyboard chops. If you’re familiar with the original then this should be no surprise to you. MelodyBrony also has an album in the works, set to be released on December 21st, so keep an eye out!
Fast and trippy? You bet. Track 61 from Ponies at Dawn: Eternal sees a fast-paced yet chilled out drum ‘n’ bass track from the great Single Purpose. Twilight’s singing voice from Magical Mystery Cure is the song’s prominent sample, fitting perfectly alongside the beautiful synths and drums. Sit back, close your eyes and let the entrancing music carry you away!
