Ponytronic – Frostbitten Beauty | Drumstep

Sublimating that amazing artwork by MirroredSea, Ponytronic treats us to a Rarity-themed gem that would definitely make the mare blush (and she knows a thing or two about gems). Soft and spunky, the piece sings an ode to the fabulous and gorgeous mare and I appreciate it a lot as she’s my second favorite pony ♥

H8_Seed – Neverending Strife (Doxypony Remix) | Drumstep

(Listen to the Fandom oldie here)
Old Discord fans should really enjoy this one! DOXY here amps up the tempo with some quick drum beats, plus in the spirit of discord kinda makes it chaotic with the wavy fast melodies and the 8-bit keyboard tones that sound like something out of Castlevania! Not a bad thing at all! The lyrics are manipulated to go at a discord pace. It’s incredibly nostalgic for fans that have been around for quite some time, and a warm reminder of when Discord first appeared in the show. The remix also features a pretty smooth keyboard solo. The technology and production value has gotten better over time. So, it’s interesting to hear remixes of older songs, and seeing how they still stand up. Who knows? Maybe folks like Doxypony will be making noise when gen 5 appears. As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.

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!
