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!
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!
Skelter took the early initiative of remixing the awesome Being Big is All It Takes from the momentous recent CMC episode, and it delivers with such sick beats and echo-y vocals of the CMC making for renewed emotion! Definitely a very cool remix, thank you so much for it Skelter!!
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!
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!
(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!
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!
With cute and emotional melodies as well as a sound design that just turns you crazy, VooDoo’s solo contribution to Ponies at Dawn Skyward is both lovely and showcasing top-notch quality, and the cute art by Kit in this video by Suskii only makes you want to hug a pony as well while listening to the song!
Hot off the new Ponies at Dawn: Skyward compilation album is long-time fandom great, StrachAttack with another very well-crafted hit! ENDEAVOUR is a fantastically melodic piece with powerful drops, mixed nicely in a unique way that you could only expect from Strach. The song is fun and easy to move along to, while changing up the energy throughout to keep you on your toes!
Lily Stilson brings us a fast paced and exciting piece of witchcraft, originally intended to be released around Halloween, however just because it’s a little late doesn’t make it any less fantastic! The atmosphere and mix are very clean and with the constantly evolving bass line and seamless switch ups with the drums, it makes for a fun experience!
