Another gem from the just-released Origins EP, Fragile is Eksoka‘s take at the concept of fragility in Fluttershy as the cover art implies, or ponyness in general. Sampling Twilight’s amazing vocals from I’ve Got to Find a Way, it delivers an otherworldly atmosphere and musical bliss in the purest form, and always following the musician’s amazing vision for unique, clean, mellow masterpieces.
An incredible new version of the original Lachryphagy, this Acoustic Mix focuses on expressing the mixed feelings you have when you realize the changeling’s right to simply feed themselves and follow their nature. Originally seen as villains, you start accepting them and feeling for them, thus offering them comfort and understanding, a warm lapse of solace in all the antagonism. And this track reflects that blissful time and those heart-warming feelings to perfection. Soft drums, bittersweet acoustic guitars, pure-hearted synths, and a switch to a divine part including an electric guitar solo, all convey so much emotion and match the concept in incredible beauty, proving once again eksoka’s incredible talent and vision like none other.
I’ve long been fond of drumstep. My first exposure to it was a 175bpm edit of Artattack’s Loyalty remix, and since then I’ve been looking for more good pony drumstep. UndreamedPanic’s Rainbow Blast is a stellar example of the genre, with some classic Rainbow Dash samples. Themed as videogame battle music, it’s easy to imagine playing as Dash and fighting off a bunch of changelings or Ahuizotl cultists!
Sharing and spreading the positive messages and values from MLP is what I think defines us the most as Bronies, and it’s precisely what the original song A Long Way From Equestria is about. Here wonderfully covered by Rockin’Brony & Friends, it lives on through our hearts and the newer generations of pony musicians, to shine and spread the word once more, that we Bronies are changing the world. Enjoy this spectacular, heartfelt, and emotional rendition of the song by Rockin’Brony with the help and the shared magic of Friendship of 4EverfreeBrony, Cyril The Wolf, Luck Rock, Sable Symphony, Strumpet, and StealingShad3z! Wonderful job, y’all! Much love! Let’s keep making this world more like Equestria!
Going hard with all the Dubstep wubs and drops, Mantlegen retells the story of S06E15 28 Pranks Later with possibly an alternate and darker ending… What if it was NOT a prank? Much hard-hitting-ness from Dubstep master Mantlegen ensues for a spooky and sick result…
Check this song out as part of its EP on Magnus Records!
R3CTIFIER‘s Break the Silence is one of my favorite releases of the last few months, and it’s so cool to get a remix of it from Cynifree! Going the chill route, the musician takes the original vocal chops on a new soothing House journey that provides such a comfy atmosphere that Fluttershy would probably approve of. Let the many wonders flow once again with this remix!
Ah, yeah! Love us some trap and future bass here, coming from The Dark Side! Inspired by John Joseco and his Princess Molestia webcomic, with Trap Nation style visuals, this song is sure to be appreciated by brony bassheads everywhere. From the emotional chord progressions to the cool sub falls and filthy drops, this track has a nice combination of both trap in major and minor keys. Nice job, Dark Side!
Jyc Row sure knows how to deliver the goods when it comes to orchestral music, and “Strength” is no exception! Inspired from Rockhoof’s story in Season 7, Episode 16, “Campfire Tales,” this work has instrumentation fit for Rockhoof’s time and composition fit for a typical superhero. It definitely feels like you’re in the village when you listen to it! Great composition, Jyc!
The rest of the Jyc Row’s EP will be coming soon, as this is Song #1.
Psytrance is my favorite subgenre of trance, my favorite genre. It’s woefully rare in the pony fandom, so seeing some is a huge thrill. SP1RIT ANIMAL is a wondrously complex composition, with chanting vocals, haunting synths, and alpine ambience. I love it so much!
