It’s been a little while since we’ve heard from PeKaNo. Compromised Fluttershy is a new tune that combines soft elements such as synths and wind instruments along with harsher ones, such as a drum n’ bass beat as well as a low synth bass. It’s a unique combination for sure, and it works to great effect. A tune perfectly suited for everypony’s favourite shy mare!
Ponytronic’s back, with a big change of pace from his last handful tracks. This one is a late Thanksgiving special about PearMac with a blissful atmosphere and cheery mood. The song’s perfect blend of orchestral elements alongside the drum and bass foundation makes the melody really feel like a celebration of their relationship and later marriage. What more could you ask for when it comes to these two beauties?
loophoof returns with another exclusive track to Ponies at Dawn: Echoes with track 50, a fantastic remake of his older track We Will! There’s an incredible amount of vocal chops from Rainbow Dash, and believe me when I say there’s a lot. A good 75% of the song is filled with them, but they’re put to good use, and fit well with the beautiful synths and fast drums. The loophoof ride never ends!
This remix’s music is pretty much perfect. The music being fast, calm, upbeat, and overall giving off a pretty happy vibe works to make the song give off a sense of hope, which I think fits with the title quite nicely. TheTaZe also gives a new softness to the music, which adds to the atmosphere of the whole song.
It’s never easy losing a loved one. Serving as a tribute to his late brother, Koron Korak has enlisted the help of Hay Tea to work on this emotional liquid Drum & Bass piece. Interspersed with the melancholy synth hits along with the typical drums you’d expect in a D&B song are calmer sections with no percussion and a violin ringing out with show quotes from Twilight and Fluttershy about saying goodbye. Catharsis through music is always something powerful, and this track is the perfect example for that.
A new delightful release by Power Note aka Lorris, this cute DnB tune is showcasing the kind of melodic aspect that I love to hear in his works. Lead synths are complementing each other so well in the progression of this track, and the title Heavenly Sky is quite fitting considering the soothing and bright vibes!
Fast and trippy? You bet. Track 61 from Ponies at Dawn: Eternal sees a fast-paced yet chilled out drum ‘n’ bass track from the great Single Purpose. Twilight’s singing voice from Magical Mystery Cure is the song’s prominent sample, fitting perfectly alongside the beautiful synths and drums. Sit back, close your eyes and let the entrancing music carry you away!
While the two musicians have been known to work in conjunction on various projects for quite some time, this is their first actual collab. Released as part of Ponies at Dawn Eternal, Hay Tea and Tripon‘s intricate track narrates a story set in a cyberpunk Manehattan. The ominous horns create a nightmarish atmosphere but are simultaneously satisfying, and the heavy use of reverb gives them the feel of being heard in dark empty streets amidst tall sky scrapers. The richness and complexity of the drum pattern makes it sound ever faster-paced and gives a sense of tension, or even panic. Don’t let it catch you.
Though the track had been released almost a year ago as part of the Equestrian Raves EP, it gets a YouTube release just now with some stunning visuals to go along with it. Tripon’s work of art underwent significant changes in terms of interpretation, now being not solely about Twilight’s coronation as the princess of friendship, but also about her assumption of the role of leader of Equestria, perhaps represented respectively by the first and the second drop. Said mind-blowing drops are interwoven with satisfying leads during the buildups and outro, and the middle-section includes some of that Neuro magic Tripon is a master of. Trading his signature ominous style for a more regal or divine one, this track is a tribute to the community and the show’s ending, and judging by the description, there’s still plenty of where that came from.
A rich and deep soundscape is awaiting you in this track that definitely is savored best with headphones. The Applejack vocal samples along that Limestone cover art is making me wonder if this wouldn’t be about the events of that episode when Applejack visited the rock farm for Hearth’s Warming and screwed up. The tasty bass and clean beats will keep you grooving that’s for sure!
