[P@D] BlueBrony & Totalspark – The Secret Agent | Hybrid Orchestral

BlueBrony and Totalspark (the latter’s second of two contributions) join forces to create something unique as part of Ponies at Dawn: Eclipse: a unique combination of orchestral music and dubstep! It really captures the feeling of an intense spy mission, especially when the surprising rock elements make their way in!

Ardhy Mahardhy – Together Until The End | Melodic Dubstep

So, everypony, today we come back to Ardhy Mahardhy (whose music you might have seen on here before) with a lovely Melodic Dubstep track inspired by “The Ending of the End Part 2”. This six minute track is sure to mesmerize you with its lovely synth and sudden in-between string verses. The track starts out with some beautiful piano followed by some exquisite strings which push the piano more into the background until you get a small buildup and the amazing synths set in to really give this thing the Dubstep feel. The synths get a buildup of their very own into the actual drop. The drop adds more synths and creates a really Melodic aura which makes the song even better. After that we get a second verse where the strings take over again and give this track a vibrant, lively feeling before the synths take the lead once more. Then we quickly return to the drop for a worthy end to this six minute masterpiece.

[ASOS] Pony Killerz – Nightmare Moon | Complextro

Yet another great track from this amazing album!

We got more Nightmare Moon for ya bronies. To put it simply, this track feels like the very moment in the series premiere where she comes back and goes on a tear of chaos across Equestria before turning her attention on the mane 6. This track on ASOS: Chocolate puts what goes down musically; I mean, that mare of the moon just wants to play with her food. It’s just too bad her food was more than her tastes could handle. This track is just a banger that this mare would improve. As always, this Qilin asks for you to judge for yourself.

Power Note – Night and Day | Melodic Dubstep

How about something wholesome? Power Note’s got you covered with Night and Day, a sweet and sour melodic dubstep track that begins with a beautiful melody played by a piano and synthesizers, followed by a build up that leads into a surprisingly harsh synth section with the punchiest of drums! As it goes on, the heavenly piano jumps right back in to replace the heavy synths to give the song time to breathe, before building up yet again with an almost future bass-y kind of sound which carries on throughout the rest of the song. Power Note has a penchant for creating atmospheres. Just listen to how diverse this song gets!

[P@D] Lavender – Gilded (feat. Namii) | Melodic Dubstep

Today we’ve got ourselves a song all about Lyra Heartstrings, everypony and sweet Celestia, is it great! The track starts out with just a slow beat that gradually gets more powerful while the lyrics set in and are instantly going to catch your attention. While you’re still mesmerized by the lyrics the song builds up towards the first drop which is prefaced by a single line before it hits in all its glory. The song doesn’t give you any time to breathe and immediately returns to catchy vocals and a short instrumental solo before the second drop, which is slightly different but no less awesome, and those differences really give the song a vibrant feeling to end on.

Daniel Ingram – Open Up Your Eyes (Brilliant Venture Remix) (feat. Koa) | Dubstep

What a PERFECTLY timed release from Brilliant Venture! I remember hearing whispers about something like this in the works, but I was BLOWN AWAY by this one! The classic Brilliant Venture dubstep sound is joined by the absolutely gorgeous vocal work of Koa, who does a fantastic job of performing what sounds to be an extended version of Open Up Your Eyes! The extended lyrics are written by Venture, and do a wonderful job of expanding on the anger and despair felt by Tempest regarding her past. A brilliant (wink wink) performance by two amazing artists, definitely worth a listen (or two! or four!!)

Seven Ponies – Shadows | Melodic Dubstep

I’m not sure why this song fell short of making it on P@D Eclipse, but there is no way I am going to let a track like this go unnoticed. Not on this Qilin’s watch. Nightmare Moon is always watching and waiting in the shadows for her moment, or is this Princess Luna on Nightmare Night walking around as Nightmare Moon, cosplaying her darker self for her holiday? Either way, the melodies are fitting for a dark and powerful force making itself known. They will convince you that the princess of the night demands your love…and your SWEETS! The Dubstep parts of this track make you feel that the princess is just looking for a good time. Luna walks around with other ponies talking proudly like her former self and dancing to these bangers on her night! Or is it all a trap by the real Nightmare Moon? This track does pack a great punch for any Nightmare Moon fan. The most notable thing about this track is its constant flow of dark, mythical energy that forms the core of the song. Those keynotes that go running with the bassline are killer. It’s truly a party with the Mare in the Moon. Ya better bring cider to offer her! As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.

Spikey Wikey – Loudmouth VIP | Dubstep

Louder! Louder! Louder, is the sentiment of this recent release from the proficient producer/musician Spikey Wikey. Acting as a VIP for a former piece by him, this piece, once again, reaches the boundaries of connection between sound design and rhythm. Heavy dynamics and a subtle yet familiar and fluttery voice also contribute to the utter sleaze of this tunage. Dirty and hard is this dubstep track, yet it’s not absent of melodies in its second half. The original piece from which this sick number was made is a tune inspired by the classic two-step psychedelic dubstep style, yet this variation finds a way to modernize that ditty into a cutting-edge definition of dubstep. This is truly the intent of a remix, to transform something into something else entirely whilst retaining its image. Also, be sure to keep a look out for Spikey Wikey’s upcoming EP, Wavetable Wizard, which this tune originates from.

SpinScissor – My Tantibus | Electropop

Based on Do Princesses Dream of Magic Sheep?, My Tantibus tells us all about Luna’s inner struggle with her thoughts as they overcome her mind. All the electronic effects from the distorted voice representing the Tantibus to the strong warbling bassline in the background that adds to the dark vibe the song gives off, there’s a lot to love here. SpinScissor has a great voice, and that synth solo that closes out the song is a great climax!

Ponytronic – Realizations (Happiness) | Dubstep

The track gives me a really warm and fuzzy feeling ya know. Off Ponytronic’s forthcoming “Secrets Best Kept Alone; Forever Untold” album, I got to tell you all… I didn’t think the hard style of dubstep could ever sound this satisfying to the soul with this arrangement. The message is very deep and personal (read the story within the description); to put it short, this song is about finding what makes you grow and also finding a balance of your happiness and others. The dubstep bass and elements are used in such an inspiring way with the melody. He speaks of Fluttershy in how she has grown over 9 seasons. I think with how banging and hard this track sounds, it’s a great example of how this song’s vibe is. It’s a different vibe to your normal dubstep. Listen and see if you feel the same, but as always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
