The fourth track from Gravity has just landed. Conduit tells a story about a mare who gets the opportunity to travel in space, only to find that she was being used as nothing more than a guinea pig. Musically, the song sees strong dubstep elements marry little pieces of the wonky genre, starting off with a slightly disjointed drum pattern before building up in front of a space-y orchestral-esque synth sound to a powerful drop. The overall vibe really feels like an erratic trip through space!
The remixes for this song will never stop coming out, and I hope it stays that way. Starting off with some soft strings with the original vocals, we’re subject to some vocal chops before building up to a powerful drop that keeps the powerful and uplifting melody while staying heavy. Gotta love the atmosphere created by the reverb on the vocals. Heavy, melodic and emotional? You bet.
Beautiful synths and vocal chops galore with Ice Angel’s remix of the EQG track Cheer You On! All three chops have their own unique flare of EDM goodness and the original vocals fit perfectly with the new track. Makes me want to cheer Ice Angel on!
Lianella Stilson isn’t holding back with this one. Ears Up showcases her soft vocals in front of a powerful electronic backing, which mixes hardstyle and dubstep and even metal, as shown when Stilson growls “kill you” in a brutal fashion. Juxtaposed with this track is one of her staple components when it comes to her music, a cute visual of her pony looking around sheepishly in front of an explosion, her eyes occasionally turning black. Everypony has a dark side…
Ready for some spooky yet early Nightmare Night vibes? Track 7 from the Helpie’s Corner compilation Other Side Of The Mirror is Dat Spooky Bats, one of Tw3Lv3’s two appearances on the album. The song uses samples from the appearance of Flutterbat on the show before the drops while a creepy synth melody plays throughout. Musically, the song mixes elements of psytrance and dubstep, with the drops containing heavy bouncy basslines and everything in between featuring dark synth pads that really add to the spooky atmosphere. We’ve still got a ways to go until Nightmare Night shows its face, but it sure feels like it’s looming over us already!
It is time again for another incredible ASoS album, and if you haven’t checked it out yet, then get on it! There are so many incredible tracks on this 43 song compilation album that there’s no way to highlight all the greatness in one article! Luckily there will be plenty of individual posts in the coming days on Horse Music Herald!
Brownie is another masterpiece in a collection of A State of Sugar albums which are dedicated to “sweet” themed tracks. Perhaps the most diverse of ASoS albums to date, this one features everything you could want and more!
There’s powerhouse collaborations, bright and uplifting songs, crazy and complex dance tracks, creative and catchy hip-hop, metal-EDM collaborations, and everything in-between! Brownie is high quality and a mega album like this will keep you boppin’ along for hours!
Harmony by definition: A consistent, or pleasing arrangement of parts; congruity
That would best sum up the opening track of ASOS: Brownie. Suskii and Rokii have baked up something really pleasing here in their collab. A tag team of sorts, is how this complextro of a track has been presented. The song opens up to wonder and mystery then Suskii comes in first with this harsh, robotic dubstep style beat that gives off this notion of a robotic pony trying to move and groove, very hardcore in nature. The song goes into this amazing and chilling drop that builds and builds up to the tag in of Rokii’s part. Who comes in with his signature epic future bass style. As if the robot pony has found paradise. The melody is frankly one of biggest reasons why I love Rokii’s style and sound so much. Him and Suskii work VERY well together to make great harmony of this track. One of many good ones on ASOS brownie. As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
With the show long gone, it’s more important than ever that the fandom sticks together. This track, in my view, perfectly embodies this idea. With its emotion-filled lyrics, and it’s epic electronic music (with many bass drops), this song is filled with energy and is able to be listened to over and over again!
Hoofy’s sound design just gets better and better. Track 25 from A State Of Sugar: Brownie is CAKE!, a powerful bass house tune with some sweet, tasty saws. Once that drop hits, the chance of you staying still is incredibly low. This one starts off bouncy and doesn’t let up until the very end. A few dubstep elements are sprinkled through this track, particularly in one of the drops where the tempo slows down ever so to bring in the heaviness. One of the harder flavours on the album!
