Filly in the Box tries out some new stuff in The Hills beyond Equestria. Chilling and tranquil, it’s the picture of serenity. Wonderfully soothing synths play beautiful melodies to just-heavy-enough-drums. This track conjures up magical vistas of Twilight exploring uncharted lands with all her friends.
Ponytronic returns with this chill and awesome track about Octavia. The drops are really minimal and experimental. The “downtempo” look like drum beats are also well performed. Also the bell sample used in the drums is also pretty smart and experimental! Warm and minimalistic Future Bass for drinking your tea while you are relaxing in the camp! Octavia should be proud of this track Ponytronic!
Radiarc’s music is always a delight to listen to. He’s so good at peaceful, rather deep and introspective stuff. Here, he uses vocals to powerful atmospheric effect, in a immensely relaxing composition. It conjures up visions of the ponies exploring dark, cold caves in the far north, distant from civilization.
Another great song coming from Nicolas Dominique. I guess that Nicolas is the Tim Hecker of the brony fandom. When we think about brony ambient/progressive electronics, Nicolas Dominique is the first name that comes out of our mind.
Missing describes Nicolas’ theory in what happened to AJ’s parents. They disappeared in the middle of Everfree Forest. And I clearly can feel the emotions in the song that represent the feeling of know that someone you love disappeared and police is trying to find what happened. Good track for a movie/series where the police investigate kidnappings.
Listen to this song, the progressions of the synth bring more and more emotions and feelings.
fractilx (alias of InklingBear) has created some smooth, wubbly chillstep for us all to enjoy. His delicious sound selection and mixing synthesize the atmosphere, while the synths themselves are pluck-y and gentle. The drop manages to be both relaxing and invigorating simultaneously, by pairing excellent wubs with those eye-drooping synths. All throughout, the song keeps a singular style and never breaks from it. Enjoyable at any time of day!
Coming from the first compilation album of the A State of Sugar Crew: Lollipop, Viricide Filly creates an awesome and chill track that I can consider one of the best tracks from the album! The slow-tempo breaks, the pads and everything that Viricide did on this track turn out pretty amazing! One of the best, made by one of the best! I certainly recommend this track for you!

A potent brew of strong bassline, lovely melody, and astonishing vocal chopping marks Lorris’s contribution to ASOS. Sweet, joyous, and kind, Another Way brims with emotion. Compositionally, it’s a masterpiece as well, with soft, smooth sounds and a very oldschool bassline.
At Night is the opening track of Lollipop, and thus it’s obliged to hook the listener to get them to keep listening. At this it passes with flying colors. Beautiful ambiance, perfectly cold kicks, and fascinating bass merge in interesting, strange ways to form the soundscape of a cold pond by night.
Totalspark has some relaxing, soft chill house for us. A gentle but firm kick and trance-y plucks conspire to create an atmosphere of pure bliss. Usually if people say that music makes you sleepy, it’s a bad thing. But Wishes lulls you off to sweet dreams and panoramas of ponies at play in the fields.
I hadn’t realised until recently just how much music Ataraxia has put out over the past couple of years. From solo piano sonatas to cinematic electronic pop songs, there’s been quite a variety. But like all good things, the alias is coming to an end, and as a parting gift he gives us Motion Reimagined – deliberately named so as a ‘rework’ of sorts of his previous album Eternal Perfect Motion. The album often takes a more experimental approach to music production than Ataraxia’s previous work, in particular the VIP of Viridescent, and features a couple of other people’s remixes of notable songs too.
It’s a great parting gift. We’ll miss you Ataraxia. Thanks for all the music.
Motion Reimagined is available to purchase on Ataraxia’s Bandcamp.
