ShalMusicFX – Under Our Spell (Covering Daniel Ingram) | Electronic

The creative power of music is amazing, and here is ShalMusicFX showing us an awesome cover of the classic Under Our Spell from Rainbow Rocks, performed live on a LaunchPad Pro! The solo in the second half is very emotional, especially for someone whose favorite instrument is the keyboards! Let’s give a round of applause to ShalMusicFX for this wonderful performance!

Blitz & Fluffalo – Dog Diamonds (Covering Rhyme Flow) | Hip-Hop

We can always count on this community’s MCs to come up with the coolest tracks, and this new take on the original concept from Rhyme Flow sure has got the badapple lyrics, rad vocals from both Blitz and Fluffalo, and a sick flow. I like to think that this is coming straight from the Diamond Dogs in Equestria, as if they formed a Hip-Hop band, and the immersion feels so good!

4EverfreeBrony – 1 Brony, 28 Fandom Voices | Acapella

Something mighty impressive even from famous pony musician and singer 4EverfreeBrony, this right here will be pretty interesting especially to those who are familiar with this community’s many singers and talents. Covering parts of songs and vocal styles from no less than 28 pony singers, 4EverfreeBrony doesn’t fail to amaze and it certainly made me smile so much as I recognized songs and vocal styles from so many of my beloved pony singers, re-enacted like this. Awesome job 4EverfreeBrony!

Francis Vace – Legend You Were Meant To Be (Covering Daniel Ingram) | Rock

Off the Everfree EP, Francis Vace’s cover of the closing song from Legend of Everfree pays much tribute to the Rainbooms’ live performance of the song, in the unique musical style that we love to hear from the talented Ska-Punk musician. Not lacking of enjoyable Ska vibes in some of the vocal parts, the cover also lays out powerful guitar play as we rediscover the Rainbooms’ latest record in newfound rock spirit.

Daniel Ingram – You’ll Play Your Part (Elias Frost Swedish Cover) | Folk Metal

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 13 March 2017.

You’ll Play Your Part is one of my favourite songs from the show, and Elias Frost has done it up in a pretty awesome way! With Swedish vocals, and a terrific build throughout the piece, this is certainly an awesome rendition. Starting out pretty soft and folk-sounding, it steadily gets more metal through the piece, as Elias’ voice helps to build the tension too. The breakdown at 2:35 when it all comes together is especially gratifying.

Tina & Damien – Mon Éclat ~ My Cadence (Covering Matthew Mosier) | Acoustic Pop

We don’t often get a quality French Cover of a brony song that’s for sure, so this right here is an awesome surprise! Damien, who was once known as the very promising pony musician Selenys, is back and teamed up with Tina to bring us an amazing French Cover of My Cadence from Matthew Mosier and originally having Megaphoric and ismBoF providing the duet. This new duet not only shines with beautiful vocal work from both singers, but it also features brand new lyrics to fit with the love song in French, and not just a literal translation of the original lyrics! It’s definitely adding a much enjoyable creative aspect to the cover for me. Here’s hoping for more releases from them!

Elias Frost – Midnight Frenzy (covering Duo Cartoonist) | Metal

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 22 February 2017.

Something I didn’t expect to see, but am definitely happy to hear! Shifting away from his usual fare of show song covers, Elias Frost delivers a cover of the piece recently put out by Duo Cartoonist. It’s decidedly heavier, with a pretty metal atmosphere and some growl-y tones to some of the vocals, but the traditionally sung chorus is where this shines the most for me, as it works brilliantly with Elias’ voice.
