[P@D] Tripon – And In Darkness May She Reign | Dark Ambient Technofolk

My second favorite from P@D Eclipse, And In Darkness May She Reign is the kind of dark beauty from Tripon that we all wished for when we saw that name in the tracklist. Atmospheric, deep and mysterious, its progression is a real journey into unknown and faraway territories, and also a trip into fascinating lore that the musician crafted and that you can read from the description!

Whirlwind – The Mission EP | Liquid Drum & Bass / Orchestral

Encompassing love for space and space music in an EP full of starry and dreamy DnB beauties, Whirlwind showcased his skill at a genre full of wonders, all while telling a story about his OC exploring space. Much emotion and story-telling in the tracks, that will make you follow him on the journey. Such a display of musical skill and passion is very inspiring and amazing, and it’s definitely an EP worth the listen! My personal favorite from the EP is Solar Surf!
Embedded here is the video of the full EP, but you can also find it on Bandcamp and find the individual tracks’ uploads on Whirlwind’s channel!

Koron Korak – No Answers Refine Doubts | Dark Ambient

Boy, this one is bleak. Koron Korak’s latest outing is a vent piece in the form of a dark ambient track, No Answers Refine Doubts. Dark, deep synths carry the track along, with other sounds from a piano and harsh droning synths coming in occasionally to switch it up over the song’s 8 minute length. I have a big soft spot for ambient music like this. It’s so different from the norm and often times minimal, but there’s always a looming feeling to it, hence the name “dark ambient”. It might not be for you, but I recommend you give it a spin at least once.

Maddie Tourmaline – The Flower Gardener | Ambient Pop

Now this is an interesting one! This piece has a very mystical yet powerful personality it feels fairly simple and straight forward however the way the instrumentation and percussion is used from the drones to the the spaced out chimes and bass… not an ounce of potential is wasted and the whimsical vocals really tie everything together, AND DON’T GET ME STARTED ON THE DYNAMICS! Maddie has grabbed my attention for sure here and I’m very intrigued to see what else they have in store!

brambleshadow4 – To Become an Alicorn | Ambient/Orchestral

Out of brambleshadow4’s upcoming series of musical pieces based on the mane six comes To Become an Alicorn, which is Twilight’s piece! Mindful of fantasia, the mystical chord changes are the beauty of this track. Truly following Twilight Sparkle’s narrative, the beginning of this track sounds like the curiosity of learning, then the euphoria of success, then the troubling dissonance of odd unknown happenings, and finally, triumph. I can’t wait to hear how cool the other tracks sound!

Altius Volantis – Scars I Used To Wear | Ambient

Today we’ve got ourselves a deep song by Altius Volantis. According to himself this is the most personal song he ever made and you can hear that in the track. The song starts out with thunder and a piano that slowly gets louder and is sure to drive a chill down your spine, another piano joins in and now it’s clearly audible how much heart went into this song. The song gets increasingly more complicated with more instruments joining in but still keeps the chilling tone and you can hear your own scars rising to the song. This song will bring out the scars all of us live with an reminds us not only of their existence but also of how we lived with them and overcame them and shows us no matter how big your scars have no matter what effect they have on you and others you will overcome them.

Whirlwind – Escape | Album | IDM / Electronica

(Please visit Whirlwind’s Bandcamp to support it)
Whirlwind is not just a drummer in this fandom, oh no, my fellow bronies. He is quite the musical storyteller. It takes special talent to take real dreams and translate them into relatable music. His debut album tells a story of his OC seeing Equestria. It’s amazing to me how much MLP:FiM means so much to people, and how dreams like this can translate into music such as this. The elements in use are there, creative uses of ambient, electronia, IDM. even a bit of drone, D&B and even glitch-hop. These all bring out the experience of so many ups and downs, drama-filled excitement or moments of peaceful bliss. Whirlwind alone should be commended in the creative experimentation of electronic music that he’s trying to break into, but enough of me talking… Let’s have a listen.
