RedWire – TriFecta | Breakbeat

Today we’ve got ourselves this great track from the talented RedWire. The track starts out with an amazing beat and some birds but quickly more joins in and you realize that this isn’t your run-of-the-mill Breakbeat track. And oh my Celestia the chord progression around the thirty second mark, if you look up amazingly awesome cord progression in the dictionary that is what you get! Then, suddenly the beat changes to a more futuristic sounding beat with some industrial sounding samples accompanying it, the beat goes on like this for some time until a slightly different tune takes over for some time until it changes once again giving the whole song a really lively feel in the end a piano is heard accompanying the final part of this song.

[ASOS] Zythiria – Dreams | Chillout / Breaks

What if just for once Princess Luna, instead of saving you from your nightmares, used her alicorn magic to make your dreams wonderful beyond your wildest imagination!
Enter what that would sound like. What a fluffy and warm track, where anything is possible. This twilight-like melody will give you feels, as you picture Luna watching ponies and granting them dreams of grand adventures, a dream date with a special somepony, or saving the day as a superpony! The soft blending of these dreamy harmonics, rhythmic lo-fi like drum beats, and just add to the sweetness of the track, a smooth use of bongo drums! With track 41 of ASOS: Chocolate, Princess Luna brings the theme of ASOS to the forefront with sweet and awesome treats of music thanks to this composition by Zythiria. As always, this Qilin asks you  to judge for yourself.

Pinkamena Party – FLUTTERSHY’S PARADOXICALLY SOFT HARDCORE TEA PARTY | Compilation Album | Breakcore


Ladies ‘n’ gents, prepare yourself mentally, for an event regarding Pinkamena Party Crew’s new release, FLUTTERSHY’S PARADOXICALLY SOFT HARDCORE TEA PARTY! And what better way to peruse this album’s contents than to let the familiar name and voice of Venetian Snares guide you through the first track, Venetian Snares Teaches Fluttershy the Magic of Breakcore by Fetlocked? Fluttershy’s melodic lines in the aforementioned piece is immediately followed by the ambient, electronica-esque track first time under by cataidana & Enny Gima. For more of that sweet electronica nectar, follow up first time under with the Downtempo track Anti Depressants by Srgt. Moon. If noise is in your roster, check out the ambient noise track Feeding Antoine by So?ing Machine. Satisfy your natural cravings for syncopation with the Think-Break-populated, frantic masterpiece HACKD HAS BEEN TRAPPED IN A TIME LOOP SINCE BUCK 2014 AND LIFE & DEATH HAVE LOST ALL MEANING FOR HE SHALL KNOW THE RELIEF OF NEITHER by mycutiemarkisagun. Personally, I think the song would fare better with a longer title, but to each their own. Speaking of length, Heart & Blood by Xinovah is an eleven minute long piece containing haunting, goosepimple-giving melodies, lively gabber kicks, and even more hectic rhythms. To cut up the poignancy of Heart and Blood, you can subsequently listen to Kakofonous A. Dischord delete a message from a toy shop employee. And there is no better way to conclude the mania of the 29-track beaut that is this album, than to listen to asmr tea party with a magician by 16194. As always, proceeds from this album are donated to a worthy cause. This time around, it’s various organizations fighting for racial justice in the U.S.

Equestrian Terror Corps – COREQUESTRIA Vol. 1: Ponyville | Compilation Album | Horror Hardcore / Breakcore


(Warning: The following album has strong adult language, and intense horror themes. you have been warned.)

This article was Co-written by Nevermourn and DrakeEmberHeart.

If you’re looking for something really out there, or if you’re feeling adventurous in the realm of the brony music community, then my partner for this article, Nevermourn, and I want to point you to Equestrian Terror Corps’s first compilation album, “COREQUESTRIA Vol 1: Ponyville”. From listening to this Album, it’s very different from a lot of electronic music out there in the fandom. The theme of this album is horror, chaotic and disturbing electronic music that tells the tale of a disorated Ponyville, plagued by these themes. You’ll find hardcore, rawstyle, speedcore, terrorcore, breakcore, Spittercore and even some chiptune! The tracks themselves are full of some of the most interesting productions of music I’ve heard. The use of vocal chops and insanely fast, haunting and eerie-sounding elements are well done. The album will basically brainwash you into listening, as well as give you a sense of the bizarre! One of the most intriguing things is the recurring theme of various moments or episodes from the show and getting them twisted and turned for some of these tracks. It’s worth a listen. Let’s have a look, shall we?

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!
