This episode was a ton of fun to watch and Evgeniy took it upon themselves to throw a fun four-to-the-floor spin on it. Adding some nice energy to the musical style piece and overall compliment the original with fun electronic elements and a more driven rhythm.
Wow! Toby Macarony has a style very much all their own and Better Way to Be Bad is the perfect song to get that Macarony twist! The remix has a very electro swing feel while keeping the original tango elements of the track. In addition, Toby incorporates their insane, stylistic chop effects to make the villains sound more demented – in the best way! Toby restores Chrysalis’ voice to the vocoder ways of season 2 and adds cool chop effects on the others as well to fit the mix. You really want to check this out!
The first remixes of Better Way to Be Bad from the latest episode are out!! NYMUND9 is definitely knocking it out of the park with an amazing Electro remix empowering the dark and villainous vibes with certain effects on the vocals, for pure bliss and emotion as we get a new experience of our beloved villains’ song. The intricate and refined melodies on those synths are working so well for the genre and providing a much cohesive electronic arrangement, and NYMUND9 even went all-out with crazy vocal chops out of Cozy’s voice!! So awesome! And it’s actually not the first early remix of that song to have come out in the community! Check out Toby Macarony’s Remix and Evgeniy Doctor’s Remix!
With both uplifting melodies and a very deep and emotional part at 1:33, iblank2apples’ contribution to Ponies at Dawn Skyward is really divine! Such is the power of music and Blankie’s proficiency never ceases to amaze me, from Electro Horse to now Sneak Horse, I wonder what the third “horse” will be!
Deep, gorgeous, and with a dark concept, this new masterpiece by Zizkil shows the extent of the power of darkness, and of mad EDM skill too, with a stunning experience of sound that will make you wander in the mind of the Pony of Shadows. With heavenly melodies and hard-hitting drops, this unique gem (one more to Zizkil’s streak) is part of Ponies at Dawn Skyward, available on Bandcamp now!
The one and only Vinyl Scratch is back once again, and with a new pony surprise for us! Part of a new EP titled The Untitled Gig (Soundcloud stream here), Wubtastic is a delight for us longtime fans who sure remember about the classic Vinylicious, with nostalgic callbacks and a renewed sick musical experience in the company of Vinyl as well! Also fun fact, I actually dreamed about Scraton/Vinyl Scratch last night! In the dream, he turned out to live in my hometown and I got to introduce him to my parents like “Hey this is a super amazing and famous musician in the community!”. Maybe I had that dream because I started writing up this post last night before going to bed, and was listening to the whole EP too… Or just because I’m so happy about this new release! Vinyl Scratch forever!
There’s nothing like a good Melbourne Bounce track! The springy style is so much fun to bop along with and it is no surprise that BlackIce is a prominent feature on the new Ponies at Dawn: Skyward! Updraft draws nicely from Spitfire’s chops from the “Wonderbolt Academy” and “Top Bolt” episodes which adds great intensity of the track. The lead is super catchy and the beat is inescapable – a fantastic track to get you up and moving!
Here is an awesome nod to one of the most beautifully sung lines in the entire show! Hot off the new compilation album Ponies at Dawn: Skyward, Quadrivia masterfully mixes Cadance’s vocal chop from You’ll Play Your Part around a powerful beat and heavy bass, makeing Britt McKillip’s heavenly voice shine as the centerpiece of this incredible track! Blend all of that together with Quadrivia’s signature style of top-notch sound design, and you’ve got a song you can’t miss out on!
My good friend Suskii composed this wonderful song about Chrysalis’s creation of the Mean Six, and it is an absolute delight to listen to. Her voice lines are sprinkled in between wubs, zrils, and screes, and the resulting song is a very special Suskii experience: essentially, a scene from an episode to amazing music! Melodically, too, this song is just overflowing with emotion.

Another Ponies at Dawn album, another batch of Silva Hound collabs! This time, surprisingly enough, he turns to loophoof for some help and it turns out wonderfully! Silva’s signature house grooves, penchant for catchy leads, and atmospheric buildups are an amazing companion for loop’s patented vocal samples and creation of cohesive melodies chopping them. One to get you really jumping, this is definitely a tune I expect to hear at live events in the future.
