One Track Mind – Ends EP | Darkwave / Synthwave

This album is packed with emotion, vibes, bops and bangers, and great songs, and everything else one would need for a brilliant album! The music covers a lot of ground, from quick, energetic hard-hitting electronic songs, like Love & Tolerate, G1GGL3, and Tartarus, to a more chill and trance-y sound, like in tracks like Intermittence and Interlude. The different tracks mix well together, and give the album a unique feel and sound. With seven epic tracks on here, there’s something that everypony can enjoy. I absolutely loved this album, and I’m sure you will as well!


CAPT – Rest | Drum & Bass

The vibes! This track honestly surprised me: it’s simultaneously chill and energetic! Inspired by the fantastic art piece in the video, it starts with rain sound effects as the music builds up, which sets the tone as nice and chill. But once the music picks up, it gets more energetic, and I couldn’t help but tap my foot to it! These two elements compliment each other very well, and make for a great song!


Vale & Fl0 – Hyper! Twilight-chan | Happy Hardcore

This track is a great example of one of my favorite types of pony music! It’s a short and sweet happy hardcore song focusing on the Princess of Friendship herself, Twilight, and it has that classic pony song sound/vibe that I just love, complete with Twilight voice samples from the show (and a few anime ones too)! Overall, it’s a wonderful song and fun to listen to!


Koron Korak – Ponies at the Beach | Electro

This track has such good timing and good vibes this song is! Right on time, the summer, With more and more bronies getting the vaccine for Gen 5, is not too far away, and the return of in-person pony conventions! It’s summer again like bronies want it! Koron Korak treats us to this delightful and sunny track on a bright and warm day for The Mane 6 and their pals. It has a smooth, light feeling with the melodies with these uplifting violin notes that Koron is known so well for. The track flows with the sunny and fun vibe of a day at the beach or a convention with your friends! Give Koron some love for this happy piece! As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself!


Daniel Ingram -The Midnight in Me (SpinScissor Remix) | Future Bass

Someone tell SpinScissor that he sure knows how to escalate the feels in his music! As this starts, you feel this deep fear and loathing building up as Sci-Twi sings, This emotional ride inside the anxious mind of Twilight only goes deeper once that drop hits. This chaotic mix of hardcore and future bass symbols the deep conflict inside her mind clashing with midnight sparkle and dreading she will come out and go on a path of destruction! The Experimental elements of this track fit the theme of this remix. You will be feeling emotional along with Sci-Twi too! As always, This Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.


Yuru – Risen VIP | Progressive House

(Listen to the Original here!)
You know, my friends, I’ve noticed a trend this year of musicians going back and giving their early works an excellent polish and remixing! This track was done in 2017 by Yuru the Redstone Brony. It shows a musician’s desire to use improved skills and give old music the right feeling!
This song now has more boom to it! We’ve always been behind Twilight’s growth as a character to the end of the series. The more upbeat vibe and that sweet keyboard, The vibe that grows of twilight sparkle maturing more and more as elements get more profound as the song goes along. Yeah, this VIP does the message justice! As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.


Steryotype – Study Tapes Vol​.​1 | Album | Lo-fi

Here’s something different and vibe-y! Study Tapes Vol.1 is Steryotype’s brand new beat tape – full of creative productions and samples that show off the innovative possibilities of the lo-fi genre. Most of the tracks last just long enough to set the tone and get some solid samples, while a few of the tracks on this tape are fleshed out and meant to stand on their own.

One of the standout demos is called Bleu and combines a more lively jazz beat with a trumpet carrying the melody. Combined with the lo-fi soundscape and a couple of charismatic chops, this sample really grabs your attention and is super fun to nod along to.

The longest track on the 19 track tape is UnVerguenza which utilizes the marimba for the melody and a subtle piano to fill out the background. This chill song is the quintessential lo-fi beat – chill, not too complicated, stands on its own, and is perfect to get lost in.

Study Tapes Vol.1 shows off a lot of what lo-fi fandom music can be, and hopefully we will get to see some of these tracks put to great use. Steryotype represents the genre well and has a great commitment to his craft. Lookout for more from this talented creator and hopefully we will get a Volume 2 in the future!
