Filly in the Box tries out some new stuff in The Hills beyond Equestria. Chilling and tranquil, it’s the picture of serenity. Wonderfully soothing synths play beautiful melodies to just-heavy-enough-drums. This track conjures up magical vistas of Twilight exploring uncharted lands with all her friends.
Einarx has released his much-anticipated EP as pay-what-you want! And this right here is the title track, inspired by and sampling Commander Tempest Shadow. It’s truly top-notch dubstep with the perfect blend of melodic and heavy. Definitely going to be listening to this one a lot as we approach the movie!
Ponytronic returns with this chill and awesome track about Octavia. The drops are really minimal and experimental. The “downtempo” look like drum beats are also well performed. Also the bell sample used in the drums is also pretty smart and experimental! Warm and minimalistic Future Bass for drinking your tea while you are relaxing in the camp! Octavia should be proud of this track Ponytronic!
Master of sick drops Mantlegen provided a refined Dubstep piece for the latest Ponies at Dawn album Guardians, and and it’s not getting an official YouTube upload! Partake in those villainous wubs as they strike multiple times, with the symbol of chaos being rightfully depicted in the video by Faulty! By the way, Mantlegen just released his new EP I Wanna Be, and the tracks Fly In and Clear Out are already on YouTube!
My personal favorite from Einarx’s recent releases, this track is sampling Tempest Shadow from the upcoming movie and sure is very ahead of its time. Showcasing insane sound design and crazy drops that feel like they’re coming from another world, the banger does a mighty job at conveying the “new”, never-seen-before mood from the character and what we could see in the trailer of the movie, and sets a solid ground for the overall theme of the upcoming EP “Invaders” that is about the movie’s events as envisioned by Einarx. The mad guitar is an unexpected treat, further reflecting the villainous intent of the theme and making this track the utter masterpiece that it is.
Suskii’s latest release is a remix of the of Eurobeat’s classic song Luna! And man, is it good. A little softer and more melodic than most of his stuff, but still with plenty of wubs, it’s an absolute delight to listen to. He adds in a few Luna samples for fun, which ends up doubled!
Years after Starlight’s Headless, here is Einarx’s take at the haunting and very deep theme from S03E06 Sleepless in Ponyville. As Scootaloo faces her fears in a scary nightmare, mad plucks are coming at you like the silhouette of the headless horse, with an intricate pace conveying so well the simmering fear of the moment in the nightmare. An expert use of samples from the episode is also contributing to make this track an amazing dark experience of sick sound design and powerful concept.
Henni’s back with lovely releases and the signature happy vibe that he likes to give to his songs, and this original certainly lives up to its cute title, with very Equestrian lead melodies, uplifting beats, and starry background melodies delivered over a beautiful progression. Along the cute cover art, this definitely feels very pony and MLP-like!
PVNK shares my interest in Warhammer 40k, and this song takes inspiration from that setting’s biggest way to fix problems. Equestria is being invaded by Changelings, and ponies decide to activate a countermeasure of sorts. Gritty, lo-fi, noisy, and discordant, this is the auditory equivalent of watching a supervolcano erupt. I loved every second of it.
Editor’s note: Bonus P@D: Awakening mémé at the end!
Woohoo, some pegasus music! The severe weather warning is absolute gold, as is the [spoilers!] signal beep. The melody’s catchy, sinister, and thoroughly enjoyable. Delicious bass composition, rain effects, and drum placement round out the song. The thumbnail is intriguing – did Lightning Dust cause the storm?
