[PP] Dynamite Grizzly – Moondancing All Alone | Breakcore

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 8 February 2017.

Dynamite Grizzly has made a bunch of cool new music recently, and you can find a bunch of it, along with this track, on their new album The Horses Really Like Techno. This is possibly one of the zanier tracks on the album, and features an interesting and diverse range of sounds with some quieter sections interspersed with crazy breakcore drum sections and some great vocal sampling throughout.

Ponytronic – Phantasm | Breaks

Emotional masterpiece incoming! I don’t need to introduce Ponytronic anymore, and his impressive streak of unique tunes with a signature mellow twist has come to what is in my opinion an emotional pinnacle, with this new release being just as unique and amazing as it is powerful to the soul. An original start gives way to an instrumental of indescribable beauty, progressing with much sensitivity, and synthesizing emotional melodies with a beat and sounds that are as clear as water. As for the ending, it is simply bringing me to tears every single time I relisten to it. And I swear those emotions are SO powerful that they seem like they’re coming from another world. That, is the true power of music, and I feel blessed to experience it thanks to tracks like these. That masterpiece of an outro, bringing untold emotions and probably coming from divine inspiration, is a blessing to have in the track, and I can’t thank Ponytronic enough for that. Music is magic, for real!

[P@D] Thrasher – Orbit (Brilliant Venture Remix) | Metalstep

Thrasher’s song Orbit from the last P@D album was already one of my favourites, Vylet’s vocal edit was great too. And we’re keeping that train of production rolling with Brilliant Venture’s Remix, which combines the awesome guitar riffs of the original with Brill’s (somewhat) newfound sound design skills. Two different paces too – full time breakbeat for the first drop and half time dubstep in the second – always a decent little switchup for any ~140bpm song.

[P@D] Phoxi – Starlight Ataraxia (Lovestruck Brony Remix) | Electronic

TBH I have no idea what genre this is because Lovestruck did such a good job of blending a bunch of different styles together, but namely dubstep and a kind of garage/breakbeat type part. And it’s not afraid to suddenly switch things up between the 2 styles. If you havent’ heard it already, I can almost guarantee the drop will take you by surprise.

PegasYs ft. Midnight Melody – Dental Damn (Agents of Discord Remix) | Hip-Hop

This gives me flashbacks to about a year ago when the original of this track was released. Unfortunately far too late for the remix EP, but it’s nice to see this tune still being remixed. In this particular version, AoD makes plenty of use of the horns from the original, combined with a classic break beat rhythm and hip-hop style drum sampling.

Ponies At Dawn – Voyager | Compilation Album | Multi-Genre


Here it is, what’s bound to be the best Ponies At Dawn album yet. With each new album comes both a new selection of artists as well as some of the great ones who have been around for a while – something that is in my opinion the best balance when compiling brony music.

The album is available completely for free on Bandcamp, or you pay whatever amount you wish for it. You can expect to see many of the songs from it posted on the site in the coming days and weeks!
