BlueBrony – in between | Chillhop / Liquid Drum & Bass

Time to rejoice, for BlueBrony is back with a new original pony-inspired tune! BlueBrony has some of the most unique and welcomed themes in the pony music scene, and this track is about that part of S08E06 Surf and/or Turf when Terramar is torn between his earthy home and his aquatic home, unable to choose and sitting on that tree branch in mid-air. Delightfully capturing that scene and those feelings in an experimental piece, BlueBrony reflected beautifully the many shades of the moment with distorted leads, an arrangement of fitting sounds representing both the sea and the earth, and an inspired progression that will make you wander in the depths of Terramar’s thoughts! Truly an amazing and very lovely initiative.


Nicolas Dominique – Kites | Chillout

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 18 June 2018.

Nicolas’ chillout works are almost always wonderfully calming, and this is one of my favourites of his recent releases! Consistent and clear pads and arpeggios combine with other lovely compositional elements to help immerse you in a sea of kites soaring through the air. Maud would almost certainly enjoy the atmosphere.


UndreamedPanic – The Outdoors | Album | Electronic

I don’t think I could ever count the amount of music that Panic’s made. The sheer volume of music he’s contributed to fandom is incredible and it all just keeps getting better as he grows as a producer! The Outdoors sees him taking on some more poppy styles like Future Bass, a bit of Indie Pop influence, but also a good deal of Melodic Dubstep tracks too. Anyone who’s a fan of Panic’s usual songs, or any kind of mainstream-style electronic music is bound to enjoy this.

The Outdoors is available to purchase on UndreamedPanic’s Bandcamp.


TCB – Only One | Chillout / Drum & Bass

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 12 May 2018.

Making gorgeous use of vocal chops constructed from the song from the recent CMC episode, TCB creates a beautiful atmosphere. It also has some sections with the vocal unchopped that work just as well. The instrumental fits with them in a terrific way, initially understated and chilled out, before going a bit more into overdrive with some drum & bass percussion.


Vylet Pony – Twinkle (feat. Namii) | Indie Pop

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 14 April 2018.

Vylet certainly knows how to create some grogeous and cosy atmospheres, which is definitely the case here in this piece about Starlight and Trixie. With a mixture of his own and Namii’s vocals melding together beautifully, the combination of acoustic and electronic instrumental elements also work to create a really enjoyable piece.


Osoch – Pleasant Chill | New Age / Chill Out

Even when he’s working on something completely different from his usual metal styles, everything Osoch touches is gold! Pleasant Chill is everything the title claims and more. The song begins with a captivating intro and great bass line with mood setting pianos.
Then the strings come in breathing life into this track as it becomes an adventure and a superior meditation experience at the same time. I could say so many amazing things about this track – but you deserve to experience it yourself!


Vylet Pony – Ember | Indie Pop / Chillout

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 2 April 2018.

A new track from Vylet’s recently released EP Our Light And Ever After, this is certainly one of Vylet’s most beautiful tracks yet in my opinion. The vocals through the track are excellently performed and come across really heartfelt, whilst the minimalist instrumental manages to combine a chilled out feel with some wonderful depth and emotion.


Nicolas Dominique – Friendly Monsters and Fascinating Places EP | Chillout

Nicolas is a master of the chillout and ambient genres, music that just puts you into a trance throughout the entire thing. And now he’s compiled an entire EP of songs fitting that bill, all themed around the idea of exploring weird and wonderful parts of Equestria…or an alternate version of it…where cheese rolls down hills and unicorns swim through lakes with pillows on their heads. Perhaps it’s best not to think about it too hard…

Friendly Monsters and Fascinating Places is available to download for free on Nicolas’ Bandcamp.
