NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 25 March 2018.

Hay Tea brings the funk here with a super groovy remix of bank pain’s Sunset Shimmer tune Sunny’s Theme. Making excellent use of vocal samples from the original, the percussion throughout the track is top notch and the synths in the track work perfectly to give some strong vibes throughout the track, not to mention the lovely piano work.

[P@D] Protocat & Natus – Worthy (RoomVR Remix) | Liquid Drum & Bass

I simply ADORE this kind of Drum & Bass. RoomVR just consistently makes incredible liquid dnb tracks that are smooth, chill and quite frankly in my opinion, downright beautiful. Okay, I admit it probably helps that Protocat and Natus’ original version of this song was already stunning, but RoomVR has still manages to transform it while keeping the same emotion of the original. And it’s a great debut to Room’s own YouTube channel too! Another of my favourites from Rebirth, without a doubt.

[P@D] PegasYs – Trixie Cannon | Neurofunk / Trap

PegasYs’ talent across all aspects of music production never fails to amaze me, so it’s no surprise that his latest P@D contribution is just as fantastic as always. The blend of trap elements and neuro basses, all applied into the double harmonic major scale to give it that Middle Eastern vibe is perfect. Pega’s actually about to start focusing more on his professional alias, Elysen, and you can find his new channel over here which will feature not just music, but tutorials and videos exploring music theory and other neat stuff. So thanks for the pony music Pega, it’s been a blast…

Sky Runner – Fade Away | Drum & Bass

If I was to make a list of songs that make me feel like I’m away from civilization and relaxing with nature all around me, this song would be one of the first on that list. Sky Runner has done an amazing job of combining the smooth beats with an emotional, natural atmosphere to create a beautiful DnB track. The Flutterchops help refine the already serene arrangement and add a calming depth. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m gonna go find a waterfall to fall asleep next to as I let all my problems just Fade Away.

TCB – The Magic of Friendship | Breaks / Liquid DnB

To celebrate 1k subs, TCB has made a relaxing Breaks track with incredible sampling work, amazing drum work and amazing bass work. A track full of light and enters your heart and make it warmer. The vocal chops and the Celestia speech sampling were spot on, the “field recording” feeling at the end with the birdsong and the pouring rain sounds like a lot of fun and it fits the mood where we are right now (maybe in Europe). And for the end, that delicious piano part, choosing a great skill behind TCB’s mind. Good job TCB, hope your work inspires new musicians to make good music like yours!

Exiark – FTL | Drum & Bass

Straight from the album Otherworldly Journey, this track envelops you with its chilling melody, depth, and sense of determination as it tells of how Luna, after being exiled to the moon is trying to get to someone, and how nothing will stop her from getting there. Faster than light we are taken through Exiark’s Universe and yet, we still have much further to go before we reach the end.
