Brilliant Venture – Legacy : In the Mix | Album | Dubstep / Drum & Bass


Here it is! Brilliant Venture’s long awaited album is now upon us and boy was it worth the wait. Including many remixes of classics of both community and show songs, as well as original tracks, this album is truly a love letter to the fandom.
Brilliant’s signature wubs are very much present as one could expect and the musician also ventures in drum and bass giving a refreshing new spin to the Ponies at Dawn-featured track I Love This Fandom. Time honored Party With Pinkie by Alex S. gets a remix keeping the spirit of the original while making it sound quite novel. You will also find their take on iblank2apples’ I’ve Been Dreaming of Sunshine and Celery Stalks, adding it to the ever-growing list of wonderful remixes of this now absolute classic, giving it a new feel with heavier dubstep parts in true Brilliant Venture style.
I most definitely invite you to discover the many delightful gems treasured in this album full of adorable pony vocal chops, uplifting beats and marvelous melodies!

[P@D] Redhose vs Pegasas – Under The Shadow | Hybrid Trap / Drumstep

This one is unique. Pegasas was featured on Ponies At Dawn: Eternal for this track and I have to say its one of my favourites from the album. Taking a heavy influence from Hip hop and Trap production this track has a strong backing groove with a very nice flow in its lyrics. The highlight of course is when you come to the drops. They hit hard and heavy and bring with them a very syncopated style of percussive sound and words can only go so far. This one really is easier to hear for yourself and I love the creativity used in this one!

StrachAttack – Dusk VIP | Drumstep / Drum & Bass

There is much emotion from both the renewed vocal chops and the divine ascending sounds in this VIP of Dusk from master StrachAttack, taking us to cloud nine! The heavy as buck drops are blasting the musician’s EDM expertise at full force once more, and this track is so powerful overall! A real masterpiece of a VIP! And it wouldn’t be complete without the signature dank outro!

Vylet Pony – Healing | Dream Pop

I really need to listen to Vylet’s album Love Letters: Colourless. When you think of Rainbow Dash, and the vast amount of brony music made about her, there is a lot of energetic, fast pace, songs that fits her character. Healing is a really nice change of flavor to the more stereotypical tracks.
Vylet Pony has made something soft and uplifting. The melodies are like a powerful wave of inspiration – very reminiscent of Rainbow Dash! The lyrics evoke emotions of her struggles. Vylet’s voice is so good over the harmonies, they make you feel like you’re in a dream watching the story take place. The message of Healing is powerful and wise. You need time to heal, time away from everything to put the pieces back together. Do yourself a favor and check out this song + Vylet’s album!

Glaze & H8_Seed – Awoken (StrachAttack Bootleg) | Drumstep / Drum & Bass

(I am sure everyone knows this song in our fandom. However for those who are listening to this for the first time. Listen to WoodenToaster’s/Glaze 2012’s Classic Here!)
I’m sure this will please longtime bronies in our fandom! Oh and something Woodentoaster related in about 4 years! StrachAttack’s exciting remix of this golden age classic, to this dragon pony, is very good. I just love this kind of D&B with electronic piano tones mixed in. The song about a rainbow factory worker on the brink of insanity and wants out! The remix has its own identity. The beat flows so well between these haunting dance tones. That picks up in speeds, with the drops being this epic harmony with these amazing piano tones. I will admit this was my first time hearing this fandom classic. I approve!

Tadpole – Caffeinated Horses | Drumstep

Wow! So this is what happens when you give Pinkie an energy drink and a drumset! What a fine introduction to Drumstep for myself. The pace of this hard pounding melodic drumbeat is intense! The drops when it lets up are silly, it’s Pinkie after all. Everything from goofy sounds to a slide whistle! Creatively mixing all of this hyper-caffeinated energy together! When the beat is not going into hyperdrive. I got to hand it to Tadpole. Fun stuff here. Oh yeah and don’t give the pink pony caffeine unless you want a bomb to go off, trust me!
