Toby Macarony – Pinkie’s Bakin’ Rhapsody | Breakbeat/Jazz

There is brony music. Then there’s brony music in terms of one Toby Macarony. My first taste of his flavor of creative insanity. I got to hand to him. Why was brain saying to me, “What the hay did I just listen too? DrakeEmberHeart’s brain must reboot!” I understand this, this being a Pinkie Pie song. Its all kinds of musical ingredients bending together. It’s random, just like her. BUT is baked all together and comes out all soo sweet and full of smiles. He has some ragtime, breakcore, jazz, acoustic, chiptune, hardcore. I found this perfect for someone like Pinkie. As always this Qilin lets you be the judge about this song.

Daniel Ingram – Living in Color (Toby Macarony Remix) | Electronica / Fun Fair

Giving a nod to the newest special Rainbow Roadtrip, Toby Macarony injects some more power and a bit of his own style into the song Living in Color. The original version of the song depends heavily on the voices without much instrumentation. Toby composes his own instrument parts and beefs up the beat to round out the piece and amp up the energy. His work pays off as his remix completely changes the style of song, without losing any of the parts that make it fantastic, creating a new experience out of a beloved track.

The Experimental Bronies & noise.horse – Out of Limit 4: The Philosophy of Time | Compilation Album | Experimental


The Experimental Bronies have once again teamed up with noise.horse to release their fourth entry in the Out of Limit project! There is plenty of interesting and unique tunes by several artists in this one ranging from more ambient and mysterious tracks to dark and filthy tracks as well as some good ol’ hardcore tracks. Viricide Filly’s track, Seconds Into Centuries, I Let My Hair Grow was one of my favourites and I go more in detail with it in the above post, however there are many other cool gems such as Smallish Season by Detra x Danger, which is a very intriguing and groovy twist on lo-fi and hip hop-esque music while Tripon’s Cascade is a very energetic and complex neurofunk style track with their signature style with some complex sampling and abstract design decisions that make for a refreshing listen. All in all if you’re tired of hearing the ‘same old, same old’ and looking for something odd and refreshing, noise.horse has just what you are looking for!

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!

[P@D] Zizkil – I Am | Glitch Hop / Fidget House

Deep, gorgeous, and with a dark concept, this new masterpiece by Zizkil shows the extent of the power of darkness, and of mad EDM skill too, with a stunning experience of sound that will make you wander in the mind of the Pony of Shadows. With heavenly melodies and hard-hitting drops, this unique gem (one more to Zizkil’s streak) is part of Ponies at Dawn Skyward, available on Bandcamp now!

Agents of Discord – Odds & Ends | Album | Breakbeat


Full of many tasty pony Breakbeat bangers, this new album from Agents of Discord will surprise you in many ways, with a wide diversity of themes and lots of musical wonders all around! Many tracks exhibit such a creative musical vision and very cool endeavors in sound design, and the ideas behind the themes are just so lovely. To name a few, the opener Chrysalis’ Take Over is bringing an onslaught by our beloved Queen, Crystal Cave Rave (in 3 parts + a VIP) is kicking off a gig inside the crystal caves beneath Canterlot’s castle that we saw in the S2 finale, Ultimate Sweetie Belle and Ultimate Scootaloo are definitely living up to their names, and Saddle GameZ is such a excellent mashup! Lots of fun to experience while partying hard to these treats! And if you missed the live release party, you can watch the recording of it here! I was lucky to be able to attent it, and it was amazing!! I definitely recommend noise.horse‘s live release parties to anypony who hasn’t experienced it yet!

NeoN & Xavi – Penumbra (Agents of Discord Remix) | Breakbeat

Now this is cool! Agents of Discord took a bangin track by NeoN and Xavi and flipped it on its head giving us a shuffled and underground take on the original. The flow and energy in this is incredibly smooth, yet crisp and evolves and progresses very well over its decisively short length. Another thing to note, I absolutely adore remixes that take the time to reconstruct and expand on the original song while using very few, if any stems from the original itself, lots of love and time were poured into this and it shows!
