Fetlocked & Char – Flutter’s Bane | Electro / Chillout

Prepare for the vibes from this one! This rather chill track centered around everyone’s favorite shy pony, Fluttershy, is another track that reminds me of older Brony tunes. From the overall presentation to the pony voice samples used throughout the song, this track is sure to get emotions going! The song itself is filled with the aforementioned vibe, with nice percussion elements, as well as electronic and other elements that really make the song a pleasant thing to listen to!

[Equinity] SP1TF1R3 – Insecta Regno | Melbourne Bounce

IggieBlackIce has started a trend in this fandom. Melbourne Bounce is just a very energy-fueled genre that you can’t help but get into the uptempo style of electro house known for its use of deep bass horns. That is what makes it so fun to listen to. So what happens when you mix this sound with a bit of Russian flare and Queen Chrysalis? One of the best tracks on Equinity 04: Immersion! At track 34, you’re treated to a song about old Chrysi going insane, wanting vengeance and being an overbearing cocky bug queen. The vocal chops flip some awesome Chrysi moments (some of which come from her fight with Starlight Glimmer) which plays into the beat of the song well. This song plays into why Chrysi is one of the most beloved villains behind Nightmare Moon by so many bronies. The elements of the track play right into her moods: cocky, crazy and wanting revenge. The structure of this track just plays those factors so well. This also happens to be SP1TF1R3’s first time making a major compilation album; I’d say this song’s fitting for that. Queen Chrysalis fans rejoice as this track is the prime track for your beloved bug queen! As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.

PS: Qilin is pronounced as kee-lin to let you guys know.

Dipi11 – Sorry To Have Scared You | Alternate Electronic

Drawing inspiration from Fluttershy’s line “sorry to have scared you” from The Best Night Ever, Dipi11 returns with a funky track that combines both old and new.  Intricate percussion and bouncy wubs add energy to upbeat melodies and Fluttershy’s voice, each adding an extra layer of fun and uniqueness to the track.  Take an interesting trip down memory lane with this creative fusion of nostalgically videogame-esque sound design, lighthearted melodies, and cute vocal chops from Fluttershy!

TIFWhitney – Le Derp (Aventrix Bootleg Remix) | Electro Swing / Complextro House

The original version of this song by TiFWhitney is a bouncy delight that fuses electro swing and glitch hop to great effect. This version retains those wonderful elements but delivers them at House pace creating a danceable and delightful uptempo remix! The song sounds as if it was always intended to run at express pace, and the Derpy vocal chops are a nice addition, too. Also, if you got a little bit of a Star Wars cantina vibe from the music then you might enjoy the choice of artwork for the video. The Derp is strong with this one.

Japkozjad – Hi | Electro / Glitch-Hop

Inspired by the simple word “Hi” from Pinkie, Japkozjad delivers a catchy melody and fun sound design that perfectly fits the bouncy nature of our favorite pink party pony. Darker, glitchy sound design in the drop sections highlights the contrast between Pinkie’s upbeat, quirky personality and her undefinable, almost other-worldly nature. Even the melody itself is not all sunshine and rainbows; instead, it emphasizes Pinkie’s depth. Even though joy and laughter are her defining traits, she displays and array of emotion. She always comforts those feeling down in whatever way is needed, be it cheering them up with a party or just listening to the pony in need, perhaps, sometimes, even shedding a few tears with them. Even when she’s feeling down, it usually doesn’t take long for her to bounce back. This creative track really highlight the multifaceted aspects of Pinkie’s disposition while still keeping the overall upbeat tone she is known for.

WoodenToaster – Pinkie’s Lie (Spikey Wikey Remix) | Fidget House

Pinkie’s Lie is the first track ever released by popular fandom artist, Wooden Toaster. Now, over 9 years later, Spikey Wikey has revitalized this classic piece with an epic and nostalgic remix! The track starts with a somewhat distorted version of the melody that sounds somewhat like it’s being played through an old radio, which certainly adds to the nostalgic feeling. It’s like looking at an old picture, reminiscing memories from the past. As the track progresses, it gains a clearer, more refined sound, as if you had just been transported into the picture itself and are now reliving the memory in person. Utilizing some glitchy, video game-esque sound design, as well as plenty of vocal chops from the pink pony herself, the track is able to retain its reminiscent vibe throughout. With catchy melodies and creative sound design that just make you want to get up and dance, this piece is sure to make for an epic trip down memory lane!

TheBluishPony – Wub Wubs | Electro

You know, the use of 15.ai with pony voices can be very creative and pretty useful if done right. In the case of TheBluishPony, this track seems to pay homage to everyone’s favorite Vinyl Scratch! As the track is titled, there are various types of WUBS in this track. Big one, little ones, rumbling ones, popping ones, vibing ones, crushy ones, all with this smooth and cool baseline to back the track as the wubbing carries on! While I’m not sure what to think of the pony AI characters talking so much trash, the music itself it like all of us reacting to it live, hehe! Overall, this track is smooth and delightful. As always this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.

TCB – D I S C O R D | Future Bass

Is this a new original track from TCB? Is this a meme? Is this a remix of Odyssey Eurobeat’s iconic Discord? Is this a banger? Is this the return of The Living Tombstone? No, it’s… all of that at the same time! Okay, not the Living Tombstone part. But by now you must have understood that this is something that you shouldn’t sleep on. The dank play on vocal samples, the sick wubs and the refined composition à la TCB will do the explaining anyway!

[P@D] NeverLastStanding & loophoof – Delusion | Electro

What a great tribute to Queen Chrysalis! I love the description that NeverLastStanding provided for the video, which explains the ebb and flow of the song between its darker, attacking passages where Chrysalis is at the height of her power and the lighter passages where she is biding her time and waiting to strike again. The song begins with the queen bug horse planning her latest attack and sets the table with lovely atmospheric effects, strings, and vocal chops before launching into a frayed, distorted, pounding melee where the synth waves do so well to personify the waves of changelings. The melodic break is a really great counterpoint to the “evil drops” and harder passages, almost allowing a sense of calm and happiness, but there is always something percolating at the edges of this tale, and it’s not long before the progression ramps up, not once but twice, to its final crescendo. The retention of the more blissful elements before distorting them during the final drop is really effective narratively. Though the song ends on a hopeful note, how long will we all be safe from such a tenacious foe?
