Fast and trippy? You bet. Track 61 from Ponies at Dawn: Eternal sees a fast-paced yet chilled out drum ‘n’ bass track from the great Single Purpose. Twilight’s singing voice from Magical Mystery Cure is the song’s prominent sample, fitting perfectly alongside the beautiful synths and drums. Sit back, close your eyes and let the entrancing music carry you away!
A new gem from Tw3Lv3’s album Release has been … released, incidentally serving as ponyfication of Chet Baker’s cover of I fall in love too easily. By including Cadance’s line from S02E26 A Canterlot Wedding which the title bears, the original meaning changes and by giving it a lo-fi spin so does the genre. Keeping jazzy inspirations and adding a delicate bassline works wonders as both genres find roots in blues, and will make you want to chillax while pondering about the mysteries of love.
While the two musicians have been known to work in conjunction on various projects for quite some time, this is their first actual collab. Released as part of Ponies at Dawn Eternal, Hay Tea and Tripon‘s intricate track narrates a story set in a cyberpunk Manehattan. The ominous horns create a nightmarish atmosphere but are simultaneously satisfying, and the heavy use of reverb gives them the feel of being heard in dark empty streets amidst tall sky scrapers. The richness and complexity of the drum pattern makes it sound ever faster-paced and gives a sense of tension, or even panic. Don’t let it catch you.
Just the beginning plucks in this song should be enough for this dance tune to pull you into its dreamy nature. Soon afterward the reverie of an intro, there are offbeat basses and gated saws playing the song’s catchy main melody. And don’t miss out on the trancey interlude, characterized by a modulating synth backed by even more basses! It’s easy to find yourself hitting replay with this spatial dance piece, so don’t miss out!
The Russian brony scene is home to some of the most dedicate fans in the entire fandom. SweetF1RE’s remix of his own track AppleBlood is a creepy Russian language banger that features heavy dubstep basslines alongside creepy music box style synths and SweetF1RE’s deep, gravely voice to make a Nightmare Night piece that’ll be sure to creep you out! Somepony needs to give Applejack a Snickers…
This song… I don’t even know how to classify it… Feryl DeMarco’s back with her second single, and while it’s definitely a lot less hectic in comparison to her last track, this one definitely has a unique choppy flair. Borrowing elements from trip hop, ambient and R&B among other genres, Feryl’s successfully created the audio equivalent of wandering around in Luna’s dream realm as she hops from dream to dream of Equestria’s inhabitants. Definitely something to relax to!
Tw3Lv3 wanted to bring more lo-fi in the community and has arguably achieved that very goal. This time it is a cute collab with Lorris Power Note featured on Release, Tw3Lv3’s album you surely have heard of. The track is very rich, borrowing elements from various genres, including hip-hop, trap and vaporwave backed up with a vinyl background noise. Chip-tune and video-game inspiration fits nicely the adorable very short story told by the title and visuals.
The lo-fi ride never ends. Track 16 on Tw3Lv3‘s debut album Release shows an instrumental collab between him and TheTaZe. Along with the familiar elements you’d come to expect with lo-fi music such as a distorted sample and a smooth beat, TaZe adds a few new pieces to the plate, such as a catchy synth as well as a strong bassline. The song closes out with the sudden sound of tape slowing down, giving it a retro feel. Be sure to check out the rest of the album!
Unexpected remixes of classics are awesome, and this time Ricardo treats us to a very bouncy and classy remix of a classic from Sim Gretina that shall never be forgotten! The original vocals are echoing again in this brand new electronic arrangement, and it just feels so nostalgic!
I would be lying if I said i didn’t shed a tear while listening to this remix. This remix of the final song of the show takes the already great song and makes it greater, with the original lyrics now being set to electronic music that perfectly reflects the whole feel of the song. It’s definitely a wonderful track!
