Brilliant Venture – Moved On | Dubstep

Brilliant Venture’s always had a talent for nostalgic songs, and Moved On is no exception. At once melodic, energetic, and oldschool, this song jumps from genre to genre fluidly. It’s like being taken on a guided tour by a cheerful, helpful, kind pony (Pinkie?) through a world of happiness and nostalgia.

Flyghtning & Flutter Rex – Nothing but Discord | Electro

Electro, hard trance, whatever you want to call it, this collab between Flyghtning and Flutter Rex is pretty cool. It has this great combination of a dark soundscape, which is only enhanced by the triplets. That deep bass drives most of the song, but it occasionally breaks down into an arp that switches the whole thing into a major key all of a sudden. I love that sort of play between major and minor roots in the same key, nice work by both of these guys!

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 20 April 2018.

Synthwave stuff is definitely an aesthetic that’s been pretty big on the internet for a while now, so it’s cool to see some HOME-style stuff pop up from a pony musician! Big, nostalgic chords, awesome use of a vocal sample hook, glittering arpeggios and some super funky basslines help to make this an insanely catchy tune from Lovestruck. Not to mention the synth solos in the second half!

[P@D] Paloris & Whirly Tail – Feeling Free | Future Bass

Here is another top-notch song from the most recent Ponies at Dawn compilation album. Paloris and Whirly Tail combined to create a track that has smooth, chilled-out sections, bouncy drop phrases, great syncopation, and pinkie pie chops placed so perfectly that you can’t help but smile. The transitions are seamless and the different sections compliment each other beautifully, keeping the track fun and interesting.

Omnipony – Amplifyre (StrachAttack Bootleg) | Glitch Hop

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 16 April 2018.

Amplifyre was a song made a long time ago by Omnipony featuring a couple of vocalists, but here Strach’s bottlegged the instrumental of it into some awesome glitch hop. A solid build up quickly launches into some high energy wubs, arranged really nice with some terrific sound design some some nice melodic sections in between too.
