[ASOS] Cynifree – What Lies Beyond (eksoka Remix) | Chillstep

I am consistently astounded by the quality of music that eksoka produces. From all of their ASoS tracks, to the Origins EP I dowloaded last year, to this masterpiece, I am always vigorously transported to an entirely separate dimension. The soundscape is simply sublime, and everything takes its time in revealing itself, keeping me hooked at every moment and every transition.
Cynifree’s original track came with its own beautiful soundscapes and Flutterchops, and eksoka keeps the integrity of this, taking the whole musical world one step higher with absolutely euphoric drops and heavenly percussion. An incredibly solid performance from both artists. Enjoy!
This track is from the upcoming A State of Sugar Waffle.

[PP] Payyn & PoniPlague – Utter Flutter Blast | Breakcore

Destructively distorted basses, frenzied vocal samples, and rhythms that leave you speechless are only a few of the benefits of leaving this song on loop. Payyn and PoniPlague come together to bring you a genre this fandom absolutely needs more of. Fortunately, however, there’s an entire compilation album of it just waiting for your ears over at the Pinkamena Party Bandcamp. As a fan, I can assure that this piece will leave any dance floor in exhilarating mayhem. Except for like, a waltz or something. Just to be concise, don’t bring this to a waltz.

Zephysonas – Ghostly Compendium | Experimental

Serving as the intro to his album of the same name, Zephy, joining forces with the vocal talent of Pretty Pegasus Wings, brings an interesting and intense track not for the faint of heart. Unlike Zephy’s usual fare, this is an experimental track filled to the brim with creepy atmospheric noises and a brooding piano riff, complete with a haunting spoken word poem. This piece wouldn’t be out of place in a horror game soundtrack. It definitely isn’t for everypony, but if you like dark ambient music, this could be right up your alley.

[PP] Spikey Wikey – Skinny & Bony | Gabber / Breakcore

Orient yourself for the rave-filled Ponydome VII with this acidic opener! Spikey Wikey introduces you to the oddity of Ponydome with a sample-filled Hardcore track. The song starts off with classic string sampling and ragga-themed vocals, to then progress to a 303-heavy groove over paced amen breaks. Through an interlude of saturated sample looping, the song transitions to a gabber beat with a doubled tempo, embracing the spirit of hardcore. Sprinkled with sampling goodness, this song subdues with a fade-out and will surely make you want to continue your Ponydome VII ventures.

General Mumble – Perfect [Toby Macarony Remix] | Dark Ambient/Electro Swing

Now, I know it’s a little too early for Halloween. However, if you feel like getting the spookies on before everyone else, you may do your decorations to this track! The dark, gloomy industrial overtones, coupled with interesting vocal effects on “This Day Aria”, which is kind of a signature of this particular artist, makes for an intensely creepy yet strangely satisfying experience. All in all, another great remix from Toby Macarony!

One Track Mind – End is Neigh | Album | Synthwave / Ambient


One Track Mind introduces a collection of eleven undeservingly discarded electronic tracks. The strong sub and morphing resonances of the prelude track gives a taste of the wonderfully crafted ambient pieces in this album. Then the octave-switching neck-breaker known as Drama that follows gives you a taste of the synth-wave roots. The masterpiece Some Days, being my personal favorite of the album, incorporates a spatial piano playing tense chords and high melodies with a swingy drum track following it. The ending to Some Days also creates a near-perfect transition to the next song (both title-wise and sonically). For more ambient brilliance, follow the filtered saws and synth swells of Lethargy and the impactful basses of Hiatus. For more retrowave action, mosh along to the dark Deicide and the hopefulness of Neo-Canterlot! Varnished with consistently good intros and a piano composition as the outro, this solid Bandcamp release will surely be enjoyed by ambient and synth-wave listeners alike!

Sleepy toaster – We’re going home | Glitch/Industrial

This piece of music is a chilling and a bittersweet reminder of just sometimes you don’t need words for a message. Sleepy Toaster’s piece heavily reminds me of why I love atmospheric music. It’s not just pony music that could be used in a grimdark or Fallout Equestria setting. But this music could be used to set the tone for anything you want to give an unsettling feel too. Or a mysterious vibe to as well. Its has this dark music box tone, birds chirping and static radio sounds with this slow clockwork-like melody that slowly creeps up your spine. Not bad! As always this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself

DAϟH – Ground Zero | Terrorcore / Speedcore

Hardcore Pinkamena Party advocate and creator of all things weird, DAϟH returns with one of his extraordinarily hard-hitting contributions to the latest Pinkamena Party album! Featuring everything from pony dialogue to raid sirens and EAS alerts to enhance the atmosphere, it is held together by multiple sections of frenetic speedcore. I was quite impressed with the kicks’ design all over this track and it fits right at home in the PONYDOME!

[EQY] Totalspark – State of Mind | UK Garage

Succumb to a slackened state with four minutes of chillout-inspired garage elegance. The drenched piano and emotionally significant lyrics propose a relaxed atmosphere, then the unbound, shifting drums complete the piece. The distress of the vocals locks in well with the watery hits of the piano and background synth. This song doesn’t fail with creating an influx of feels, and it deserves its spot on Equinity.

[BFK] One Track Mind – Nostalgia (Reprise) | Darksynth / Synthwave

One track to talk about and a million words aren’t enough. As a part of a charity album Brony Forever organised by Bronies for Kindness , it definitely adds quality to the album. The amazing sound design and the progression of the track makes it a style that we all know and love. It shows through it’s dark and powerful synths that it is okay to feel sad that BronyCon ended, but it says even more. Even though BronyCon is no more, we should be happy that it brought us so much joy, excitement and that it brought the whole fandom even closer as a whole. The atmosphere of the track that goes from calm to dark and then building on it with a very emotional melody shows the process of losing something or someone. I said one track to talk about and a million words aren’t enough, well, maybe 3 are. One Track Mind.
