Koa – Background pt. 2 | Pop

Who doesn’t love a good sequel? Acting as the Bon Bon counterpart to a recent Lyra song, Background pt. 2 is a softer song that encapsulates her feelings for Lyra. The instrumentation is more minimal, leaving more room for Koa’s vocals and the words she sings, yet every part of the composition has its role and fits together nicely.

Toby Macarony – Glitchy Vitchy | Jazz / Glitch-Hop

Toby’s got a bit of a reputation with his unique approach to music; transcending and blending genres is what he’s best known for in some circles and this song is no exception! What starts off sounding like a solemn bluesy jazz number quickly transforms into something energetic and spooky. It turns out shuffled walking basslines and punch “tombstone” drums make a great combination – who knew?

Totalspark – Perception | Liquid Drum & Bass

A recent release by Totalspark is one of the great examples of a darker style of Liquid Drum & Bass, and it proves that by wasting no time, setting a mood right away – the colorful somber pads and a plucky bell-chime melody, followed with a heavy sub, will create a gloomy picture in your mind, yet not without a glimpse of hope. It’s both simple and complex at the same time, it’s deep, intense, and will definitely get stuck in your head for quite some time – I heavily encourage you to experience this mix of dark undertones with a total spark (pun intended) of light.

Synthis – All My Fears | Pop

Synthis is back again with another absolute banger. It’s good to know the homie is still out there and I hope all goes well with him! Here we have a nice song with lovely synths and funky ambient melodies expressed through both instruments and vocals that grasp you. Just the entire vibe of the track and the words sung out can definitely resonate with people. I won’t sugarcoat it; life can indeed be a frightening experience, and you’ll only see who really has your back when EVERYTHING goes wrong… But believe in the hope that this song alludes to, that things WILL get better. I hope this song reaches the people who need to hear it and know what Synthis is singing about. HMH is therefore, at your service. Happy listening!

Ponytronic – Celestial Promises EP | Electronic

Editor’s note: better late than never, right? (sorry Tron)

Following up on their 2019’s EP Luna’s Essence, Ponytronic brings you a day in the life of Princess Celestia’s royal duties as protector of Equestria! Ponytronic takes a different approach to express that through an album where Celestia is trying to figure out how not only to rule Equestria with her Sister Luna but aid her sister in re-adapting to modern Equestria. That is, however, not expressed in melodies that tell a story of struggle but these fitting beats of positively charged D&B and Drumstep tell a tale of overcoming challenges that Celestia takes on head-on! Have a listen!

Geekbrony – The Hive | Neurofunk

It’s been quite some time since Geekbrony has released anything, but it’s been worth the wait! Over one and half years in the making, this track is here to remind you why Geek is still one of the best producers in the fandom. The hyperintense aggressive synth is only the start of this masterpiece! The deadly game between Starlight Glimmer and Queen Chrysalis is captured with vocal samples full of hate and hostility, and the big showdown vibe with how that bass hits you until you are senseless. Mixed with the aggression is this soft but passive-aggressive melody that perfectly lines up with how spiteful Chrissy is and how game Starlight is to show that in return! Geekbrony has said this is the most complex and dynamic track they have ever put together. The layers of the composition give you a banger you can really pump your fist to. This track is how you immerse your listeners into a dramatic confrontation and still make a fantastic banger! As always, This Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
