AC-527 – Keep On Fluttering Along (feat. Thornquill) | Electro

Today we got ourselves a lovely track from AC-527, who is in the process of making songs about all the main six, all about our favorite shy yellow horse. The track works a lot with soundbites from the show and combines them with a lovely electro beat in addition to that there is a short part where the background beat gets really upbeat and happy with only a few soundbites in between and just for this part the song is already worth listening to. Also, believe it or not the Discord you hear in there is not John de Lancie but from a fandom VA known as Thornquill and I have to say it took me until I read the description to realize that those are not soundbites from the show too.

FritzyBeat & Steven, A.D. – The Day the Sun Dies | Electropop

We are going to be a little less serious here with the next track. There is something really wholesome to this track. Fritzy promised Steven he would finish this track, and 4 years later, that promise was fulfilled ( The whole story is in description of the video)! The song is really catchy with surprisingly swell melodies and gives it to Fritzy to throw down some bars with some rhymes! The song itself is about Celestia retiring and funnily enough, how Steven predicted the outcome of FiM. The song is quite humorous. As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself. I’d like to add that old style fandom music doesn’t always mean outdated though.

[P@D] PegasYs & Koa – Hinterland (Rabbit Hole) | Electro Pop

Everyone knows PegasYs is such a good producer and vocalist. So how about a taste of some vocals that have just a tad of reggae vibe to them? It’s a style that is well-suited to the lyrics. PegasYs shows off his vocal range with this one, and the lovely Koa then comes in with her own sweet vocals to add some love to this “ship” of Twilight and Sunburst. As track 8 onP@D: Ignite, the song features a wonderland-style pop melody that is so catchy, and the vocals lend a worldly feel to the musical Moombah style (as it’s stated). You can relax in wonder with this one! As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.

[P@D] BlackIceMusic – Fluffy Marshmallows (feat. Chasing Dawn & Lennon Black) | Future Bounce

Dear me, it’s getting hot in here…

Track 33 from Ponies at Dawn: Ignite is Fluffy Marshmallows, a collab between BlackIceMusic, Chasing Dawn and Lennon Black! This bouncy song features great callbacks to Mantlegen’s Dirty Gem, even going as far as to use some of the same samples! Dawn delivers a smooth set of bars about Rarity’s… softness… all while the beat bounces with its catchy synth riffs and rumbly basslines. Think Rarity would dance to this one?

Seventh Element – Equestria VHS | Album | Synthwave

The Sovreign of Synthwave returns with a 15-track album full of 80s sound-inspired pony goodness! Seventh Element has always specialized in out-of-the-box sound design and style as evidenced by Equestria VHS. The songs on this album are based on the ponification of different 80s movies and references to phenomena of the time (usually centered around VHS tapes). Several sound bits are laced throughout to really help set the tone, like the clips of video tapes being inserted into VCRs, and rewind machines getting used.
