Spikey Wikey – Chants | Breakbeat

Fresh off the presses from Spikey Wikey is Chants, the A-side from the newly released Chants/Nice Things single! Chants does a very good job at creating a unique atmosphere with only a few elements; Fluttershy vocal samples, breakbeat samples, faint synths and a brooding bassline. Her voice is the real star of the show, adding to the track’s ominous atmosphere, particularly when she simply vocalises along with the main melody. Like she says, just give it a chance!

Daniel Ingram – A Kirin Tale (Likonan’s Club Remix) | Breaks

The Autumn Blaze has just been doubled! Listening to this wonky and delightful spin on A Kirin Tale feels like swimming in her irresistible voice and that just feels so great! Likonan definitely did amazing with these vocal chops, and I would party hard in any club playing this remix for sure!

Pinkamena Party – PONY DO ME | Compilation Album | Hardcore


Get ready for another lovely long play release by the notorious Pinkamena Party Crew! Released in celebration of this year’s Hearts and Hooves Day, this avid electronic collage contains 16 hardcore, gabber, and breakcore pieces. Jump right into it with the classic acidic gabber emotion of Dynamite Grizzly’s Genuine Pony Music. For flavors incorporating slightly more complex music theory, check out Pudding Vision by Neu KatalYst and 10 minutes is a long time by Facade of ages. For the addictive syncopations of the amen break along with a couple suggestive remarks, check out Enuna’s semi-serious track named Of Mares and Manchildren. Of course, an album of these stylistic themes wouldn’t be complete without some classic acid techno! For that aspect, listen to acid for twilight sparkle by aimaiiponyshitsu. In this album, Supersaw Hoover also reads a bittersweet goodbye to the Ponydome series in an ominous tone. And finally, Duskfall brings a wonderfully fitting close to the album with his sample-mangling song I WANNA BE WITH U. Once again, the PPC presents an electronic album fit for even the lightest electronic listeners. For the bigger fans of hardcore and breakcore, be careful, you might hurt yourself headbanging! And as always, proceeds from this album go to CLIC Sargent to help children with cancer.

Kryptage – Ballad of the Brony VIP | Breakbeat

After a couple years’ hiatus, Kryptage has returned with a VIP version of 2012’s Ballad of the Brony! With a new coat of paint, the instruments have been remastered to sound better than ever, even trading the original’s vocal chops for samples of Saberspark talking about the fandom and the impact it’s had. With more and more names returning, it’s clear the fandom’s not going anywhere anytime soon!

7th Stive – Skylight | Drum & Bass / Breakbeat

A rich and deep soundscape is awaiting you in this track that definitely is savored best with headphones. The Applejack vocal samples along that Limestone cover art is making me wonder if this wouldn’t be about the events of that episode when Applejack visited the rock farm for Hearth’s Warming and screwed up. The tasty bass and clean beats will keep you grooving that’s for sure!

[P@D] Radiarc – The Void Undying | Breakcore/Hybrid Orchestral

If you haven’t downloaded the new Ponies at Dawn: Eternity compilation album, then you are missing fantastic, powerful tracks like this one! Channeling his own pain and struggles, Radiarc turns that emotion into a dark, overbearing sound signifying “the formless evil that lies within every villain, and its insanity and power from relentless hatred of all living thing”. The harsh instrumentation combined with an intense, chaotic beat and Radiarc’s always skillful symphonic touches makes for an emotional ride!

[PP] PhonicB∞m – Rope Swing to Ponyland | Big Beat / Gabber

PhonicB∞m returns to Pinkamena Party, after his amazing Dark Trap track collab with the harsh noise artist DUMB FABRIC, Diane, Phonic returns to the 7th Pinkamena Party and brings an interesting breakbeat experiment mixing the breaks that takes us to the 90’s raves mixed with the aggressivity of the Gabber genre, an interesting take on the concept given by the Pinkamena Party team – oldschool music genres – 90’s breakbeat music mixed with oldschool Gabber, it’s delicious and I love it!
Glad to see Phonic doing music again! Keep it up! 😀

Daniel Ingram – Derby Racers (Toby Macarony Remix) | Breakbeat / Electropop

Join the Macarony once again for some resonantly nostalgic show tune remixes. Breakbeat-themed drums, strong basses, and beautifully sizzling leads make this song reminiscent of classic fandom icons. The atmospheric interludes of the vocoded vocals of the original make it even more bittersweet. This song makes me miss the music of the early 2010’s so much so, and upon listening to it, I’m certain you will too.

Pinkamena Party – PONYDOME VII: INJECTED WITH PONY | Compilation Album | Multi-Genre

Ah, the 7th Pinkamena Party Crew project. This time coming in the brand of Ponydome VII: Injected with Pony. Ponydome comes with 50 individual tracks and includes the PPC’s BronyCon 2019 performances. Here are some quotes from my favorite moments of the aforementioned performances:

“Pinkie Pie! Pinkie Pieee!!! PINKIE PIE! PINKIEeeEE PiEE!!!” “Ponyponyponyponyponyponyponyponypony.” “The year was 20 A.D., B.C., simultaneously. For the first time and the last time and the first time only, pingpingpingpingpingpingping.”

The fourth live jam entitled Applejack! also contains a spontaneous freestyle section from community veteran MicTheMicrophone. The album is fitted with a consistent intro, all the way from the think breaks and the atmospheric chords of En Vogue pts I and II to the piano funk of Lickety’s Split. After that, bring yourself to an amen-populated Hooverville with Enuna’s tracks Hooves for the Hoofed and Filly Meal Friends. For only the hardest floors, break necks with the eery Promenade and the ever-inventive diatonic gabber kicks of Pink Elephants at the Rave. Back to back acid tracks Oh Shit! It’s Paw Patrol and cmap.exe provide some very unique atmospheres to the album. For more unique emotions, follow the [non-]fiction of One Night in Cherry Jubilee. There are so many inventive bangers on this compilation that I wish I could cover them all in only this small paragraph. Instead, I strongly recommend listening on your own. If you like EBM, Hardcore, and supporting charity then you won’t be disappointed.
