Toby Macarony – Sometimes I’m Scared | Alternate Electronic / Dark Ambient

What might just be my new favorite dark experiment from Toby, Sometimes I’m Scared is named after an aptly chosen lyric from A Changeling Can Change, sampling that song and turning its vocals into mysterious, spooky yet emotional sounds. The very Ambient-like instrumental, amazingly completed by a Funk-like backup, is doing wonders at creating a stunning experience, and I wish more dark experiments like these were being made in the community because it sure sounds so unique and emotional. A real masterpiece and culmination among Toby’s dark musical experiments, in my opinion!

F 109 always brings something mysterious and cryptic to the table and this is no exception! From Ponies At Dawn’s recent album Skyward inspired a nostalgic nigtmare from many moons ago Stehekin opens up with a foreboding organic atmosphere laden with a very immersive soundstage and is heavy with an indigenous or ethnic vibe. Theres also a really nice shift of mood by the end where the electronic grit bubbles to the surface and really brings back the tense emotion felt throughout the piece. Awesome work as always F 109 and can’t wait to see whats next!

[P@D] RoomVR & Zephysonas – Starlight Sanctuary | Ambient/Orchestral

5 seconds into this song I was already in love with it! The vibrant sounds mixed with the perfect chords surround you as only pros like RoomVR and Zephysonas can craft. Starlight Sanctuary is a gorgeous instrumental that sets a peaceful nighttime landscape around you. The strings harmonize together wonderfully, reaching a deep level of emotions as if that is how nature intended. As explained by RoomVR, “This track is about my love for the night. I wanted to portray the feelings that I experience while looking up at the stars; feelings of love and comfort, wonder and awe… and peace.” This track as well as many other amazing songs are available now on Ponies at Dawn: Skyward!

Niłch’i Poni – V’ynuk |Liquid Drum and Bass / Siberian Folk

Niłch’i (F 109) is no stranger to ambiance and sound design and this is no exception! The opening piano chords and pads are rich, deep and carry a weight behind them and that’s only the beginning. The focus shifts most notably with what appears to be a jaw harp(?) of all instruments and a more ethnic, folk sound with some tight and complex break beats to tie in to the main genre of the song. Everything ebbs and flows like water through out from the chimes to the one shots and reverberates so cleanly and mysteriously. I absolutely adore the very deep and gritty bassline that punches through at times and the dynamic range really shines through with these iterations. This is truly a unique masterpiece and truly immerses you into its world!

An inspiring piece to say the least. Nicolas always dishes out a masterful helping of ambiance in their songs. In fact they have a hand in sparking my motivation and design choices. The Spark of Inspiration is a fast-paced atmospheric masterpiece with a piercing melody that doesn’t give us much information to go off but thats the beauty of it. Its not about the song its what YOU make of the song. What do you enjoy? What inspires you?
