This is the latest release from Nicolas’ upcoming album LANTERNS, which will offer even more chillout goodness, so keep an eye out for that!

[VibePoniez] BlueBrony & Drummershy – Insomnia (Sprout’s Friday Night) | Jazz

Have you ever had one of those nights where you can’t sleep? And it seems that the only thing you can do is to reflect on your past, your future, and everything around you? Sometimes it’s fatiguing and annoying; some other times are just empty and apparently useless. Well, BlueBrony and Drummershy know that feeling, and deliver to us this fascinating jazz piece, with charming keys, some groovy drums, and a flute melody that is just stunning. The track opens with vocals telling us about a man who fails to fall asleep every night. Then all the instruments come together and enhance the atmosphere, like you were visiting all your memories and ambitions, while trying to get a moment of sleep. Everything cuts out, leaving only the Rhodes, a warm guitar, and a filtered drum kit that slowly and delightfully add more color to the track. By the end of the song, you have gained more experience and are finally ready to get sleep. The whole tune is a vibe, holding true to the compilation album!

GhostXb – Lunar Snowfall | Lo-fi

There is nothing more beautiful and comfy than Heart Warming (a.k.a. Christmas days!), it is the perfect moment for celebrating and sharing those priceless moments we have with our family, and when chilling with our friends as well! and GhostXb knows this, and the track sounds just like that. GhostXb tells us that he took for inspiration a Wonderful fan art showing Princess Luna gazing at a cold night full of stars and the gentle snow falling from the sky. There are not enough words that describe how great the image looks, so that is why our dear friend decided to make a soundtrack for it and to show us those feelings one has when we are at these moments of the year. The track begins with a small tambourine rhythm and a crystalline piano melody that instantly sets you in the mood for this cozy song. We can hear some warm guitars strumming around, accompanied by those sweet keys in conjunct of neat drums that are just phenomenal. The track continues incorporating new melodies and chords (yes, this tune even has that “Christmas-ish chord” that makes everything sound nostalgic!). We can also listen to some strings, bells, and more tambourines. The atmosphere is just great. So, what are you waiting for! Go and have a pleasant time listening to this excellent song!

Kaida – Luna | Melodic Dubstep

Kaida give us this melodically amazing and very emotive song! This time, about one of the princesses on Equestria, Princess Luna. The song is the second one in the Princess Project by Kadia, so stay tuned and check her channel for more of this phenomenal project! (that is going pretty well so far). The track opens with some gentle strings and a dreamy pad. After a while, you can hear a cymbal and some crystalline keys in the distance. Then, everything comes down only to leave space to the buildup, made of an energetic percussion and a soft and sweet lead. It’s preparing us for the drop. And, oh man, it’s a hard-hitting melodic banger! Filled with emotional chords, stunning saw-synths, and a punchy drum kit. This track is just wonderful, like our dear princess Luna. So what are you waiting for! Go and give it a listen, and also show some support to Kaida, She’s a very talented artist!

CAPT – Merry! | Lo-fi / Drum & Bass

CAPT never ceases to amaze with their work! I personally am a sucker for theory style of production, and this song is just so wonderfully done! It starts out with a really fun melody, which slowly fades in as more elements are added along with a riser, resulting in some of the most fun DnB ever! Everything about this is so amazingly cute and wonderful. Around the middle we get a bit of a switch up as we keep the melody but move into some new elements and instruments. We end this wonderful track with a very fitting crash.
Huge thanks to theCANderson for proofreading this!

Cherry Blossom – Tales Of Magic – Dark And Light | Ambient Orchestral

For every good and joyful thing, there’s always a bad and dark counterpart, it’s a rule in nature and our existence; there cannot be the good without the evil, and there’s no light without the darkness. But there’s a space, a little narrow space between these two forces, where the balance happens, where the harmony can be found, a place where you can get knowledge about the people in the light and the people in the dark. A place where you can understand both worlds, and where you can see both of their gifts, and their curses, and you get wiser. But you can’t stay there for long, you need to choose, you need to face the crude reality and determine which of them it’s the right one, and you need to accept the consequences of your decisions. And I think this song by Cherry Blossom encapsulates that feeling of being in the middle in a cool way. You can hear how the emotional weight of this feeling pulls the piece forward, like an inevitable fate. The contrast between the vigorous and energetic Violins and the taciturn and melancholic guitar it’s just perfect. The track speaks itself. It’s the voice for those who are at the border, seeking a new perspective.
Please, check this song, is very underrated, this song and Mystery Of Magic are just perfect, so go ahead and show some support!
