Here’s something different and vibe-y! Study Tapes Vol.1 is Steryotype’s brand new beat tape – full of creative productions and samples that show off the innovative possibilities of the lo-fi genre. Most of the tracks last just long enough to set the tone and get some solid samples, while a few of the tracks on this tape are fleshed out and meant to stand on their own.
One of the standout demos is called Bleu and combines a more lively jazz beat with a trumpet carrying the melody. Combined with the lo-fi soundscape and a couple of charismatic chops, this sample really grabs your attention and is super fun to nod along to.
The longest track on the 19 track tape is UnVerguenza which utilizes the marimba for the melody and a subtle piano to fill out the background. This chill song is the quintessential lo-fi beat – chill, not too complicated, stands on its own, and is perfect to get lost in.
Study Tapes Vol.1 shows off a lot of what lo-fi fandom music can be, and hopefully we will get to see some of these tracks put to great use. Steryotype represents the genre well and has a great commitment to his craft. Lookout for more from this talented creator and hopefully we will get a Volume 2 in the future!
Creative even when blinded, this new endeavor by Ponytronic is sharing some more story and thoughts involving Tavi and Vinyl as you can read from the description, all while laying out a progression of sound design and rhythmic wonders!
Glimm’s contribution to VibePoniez Plaza is such a deep and mystical beauty of a track, themed about the Everfree Forest! From the environmental sounds to the richness of the soundscape to the flavor of the sound design, experience this stunning journey through the forest in all its might!
Take a moment to appreciate the beauty of Equestrian night skies… along with a beloved pony sitting by your side in the clouds and stargazing with you. Snow Swirl delivered the perfect musical atmosphere to that moment, crafted with love, and that can definitely be felt throughout the emotions given by the wonderful Orchestral composition! It’s just so sweet and matching the tender moment so perfectly!
By hearing the opening plings of the blues guitar, you know this is going to be unique; Why would you expect anything less from a collab such as this! A dream pairing for talents that have one particular thing about them, they share in common. “Versatility,” How else can track about Princess Skystar and the Seaponies desire to once again come out of hiding and fear sound sooo smooth! To see the sunset, the mountains, and beauties of Equestria again, without the fear of the Storm King. We first have Tw3Lv3, who is a little over two short years has become one of the most versatile and dynamic music producers in the whole fandom, Able to blend styles and genres like their peas and carrots and make it sound easy. It is no wonder she has become so renowned within the music community! Then there is 4everfreebrony. The music man can adapt his musical skills to anyone’s style and kill it with his voice or talent playing the guitar every time!
This song is such a splendid example of what these two can do. Tw3lv3 composes a stunning hybrid of blues and lo-fi with soft melodies and chimes that feed into the soul of the sea ponies’ message with a sprinkle of violin for taste! Bringing something new to the table is 4everfreebrony, who lends his voice to this beat as someone who knows that lo-fi is not his cup of tea. You would not guess that listening to him sing with this ultra-smooth blues style makes you smile at how much swagger you hear. Plus that blues guitar. It makes you close your eyes and feel so delightful and light. This track seems to be fate to show how to skill the two of them have in adapting their talents. It’s a dream match that has been worth the wait! Way to go, both of you, for this treat of a song!
You can catch this one-of-a-kind song on P@D: Oceansong very soon! As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
For his contribution to ASOS Biscuit, BlueBrony delivered a deep song in more ways than one, tackling such a mystical pony concept and expressing a part of his faith at the same time! I appreciate the new lore expressed in musical ways so much, and the genre is also such an appreciated choice, Ambient like this is such a delight! Now I wish for an Ambient track featuring environmental sounds from the Everfree Forest, in the same vein as Skyrim Atmospheres!
Sky Above, Lunar Rivers Below… (reference intended) SpinScissor signs a new masterpiece with an incredible chill piece sending some love to Luna and her almighty Night, with emotional soundscapes and a bass coming in at 2:20 that is a bliss that can’t be explained with words. The power of music!
A musical continuation of Koron’s misc video Brony Flag, this musical theme is an extended version of the BGM that you could hear in the clip! The cool vibes are a delight and this is almost making you itch to do your own workout while listening to this… and thinking of ponies of course! As always we gotta thank Koron for being one of the active voices of pony in the pony music scene! Keep it up!! You can find the drawing that Koron made for this upload on his DeviantArt here!
Lo-fi house is a genre I honestly didn’t know existed until just now. House of Spike is just that, and the perfect song if your idea of a fun time is listening to Spike say the word “house” 50 (!!) times. Seriously though, this is an interesting listen. It perfectly blends house with elements of lo-fi production and even sounds you’d expect to hear in a garage song. Give it a spin!
Snow Swirl’s interpretation on the season six number A Changeling Can Change makes things more homely. The intro features an ethereal synth behind some charming bell sounds and vocal samples before Spike’s vocals kick in proper. This beat really works well with the song’s melody, bringing in all those homely vibes! Can’t get enough of this one.
