The second holiday-themed album from chill music curators, ”VibePoniez,” is out now! Among the host of new tracks is Shimmer from up-and-coming artist, Evr! Aptly named, this beautifully chill track features a slow, hip-hop-y beat, gentle piano chords, and twinkly sounds that wrap the listener in a warm and comforting blanket of shimmering sound, bringing to mind images of gazing up at the night sky on a starlit wintry night. Be sure to check out this and other tracks on VibePoniez’ new album, Hearth’s Warming Vol. 2!
SCR4TCHK4T – kittygirl!~ | Future Bass
SCR4TCHK4T’s latest release is a cute and bouncy future bass track! Laced with vocal chops throughout, the track blends together a variety of different electronic sounds. The intro is smooth and mellow with a lovely splash of ePiano, before adding some bright synths and the classic D&B beat implemented with minimalist sounds that slide very nicely into the mix! The main drop is preceded by a really cool build up with the synths ascending in a way that makes it sound de-tuned, building up a lot of tension before delivering us. Afterwards, there’s some energetic chip tune stabs and drum features. Nicely done!
Thunder Dash – This Is How A Unicorn Dreams (Izzy’s Lullaby) | Orchestral/Ambient
Borrowing from Izzy Moonbow’s “Fit Right In” from MLP’s “A New Generation,” Thunder Dash’s “This Is How a Unicorn Dreams” combines the gentle, soothing vibes of ambient music with orchestral sounds suggestive of ethereal pipe organs, softly punctuated by airy bells. The piece feels cathedral-like and dignified, like a wedding procession of hopeful dreams. With gentle piano carrying the lullaby’s main melody, an array of humming choirs, crystalline chimes and other dulcet tones support the melody to create a dreamy, mystical, magical feel worthy of getting lost in.
SpinScissor & MC-Arch – The Moon is My Guide | Drum & Bass
SpinScissor’s often ambient and ethereal sensibilities are on full display with this latest release, centered around Luna’s progression as a character throughout the show! Deep synth chords and sounds of splashing water in its early moments provide a relaxing atmosphere that you can sink right into, but you won’t be waiting very long before the tempo picks up and sweeps you away with an engaging drum beat. SpinScissor’s soundscape and flowy vocals combined with MC-Arch‘s punchy raps create an experience that is comforting and introspective at times while at others, a head-bopping anthem!
SOUND BANDIT – FUN TO PRETEND | Plunderphonics
SOUND BANDIT is back with another G3 inspired song accompanied by a pony music video! This dreamy track begins with the soft and lovely sound of an upright piano before jumping in to a gorgeous section with synths that sparkle and a warm bass. The melody is entirely comprised of vocal chops, heavily featuring the voices of several G3 ponies like Storybelle, Star Flight, and Heart Bright. There’s so much creative sampling using yawns, buzzing insects, gasps, and laughs to create a sound so absolutely adorable that it just might convince you to fall in love with G3. Fantastic work!

Vylet Pony – Carousel (An Examination of the Shadow, Creekflow, and its Life as an Afterthought) | Multi-Genre Album
Over half a year in the making, and actualizing concepts from the last five years, Vylet Pony’s new album is jaw-dropping, awe-inspiring, and breathtaking. It is an album shroud in mystery as its narrative follows the protagonist and their shadow through a plethora of genres, each track morphing seamlessly into the next, starting with heavenly soundscapes before descending into darkness and death, only to turn around and ascend back to its harmonious beginnings. Much of the story is incomplete, and the listener is invited to theorize more about it. Throughout the album you’ll hear samples from previous Vylet songs, the classic “Sing a song about life” clip, as well as a new carousel motif.

Violin Melody – Her Majesty | Progressive Trance
Who says a 2,000-year-old retired alicorn princess can’t have fun? Let me tell you, this track by Violin Melody is dynamic in every way! The fun club beats make you want to stand up and get into the party with Celestia herself. Here’s the kicker, though – Vio manages to check off emotions that speak of Celestia’s larger-than-life persona with powerful beats, uplifting inspiration, wisdom, and faith in her ability to lead her kingdom to prosperity. Her warm and gentle personality also encourages you to be the very best version of yourself. This is why Violin Melody is very effective in her music, by making you feel everything the song is and leaving a lasting impression. As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
Japkozjad – Leak (Better Go Run) | Future House
Today I’m delighted to present you Japkozjad’s first steps into Future House, and he nailed it! With a feel and sound somewhat reminiscent of Midnight Musician’s “Where’s Your Heaven Now” this song has it all! A lovely Melody that’ll be stuck in your head for quite some time, stunning vocals by Japkozjad himself and drops that’ll get you jumping around! This song is definitely one to not miss and I strongly suggest all my fellow House nuts and lovers of EDM to have a listen, I promise you’ll be putting it on repeat for hours!
Sylvver – Purple Scare 2023 | Big Room House
If anyone within the music community has grown leaps and bounds as of late in their production, it is Sylvver. If you listen to their original track crafted in 2021, it is no surprise why she made a huge splash this year with their first featured track on P@D Wanderlust! This remix focuses on Starlight Glimmer role as Twilight’s rival in season 5. Oh, what could have been if she stayed a villain the whole series, huh? You can feel that spite and venom fuelling Sylvver’s big, popping melodies on this track. Don’t just take my word for it! Listen for yourself, and you’re bound to have a fun time enjoying the vibe and vocal chops of Starlight’s ego, especially all you Glimmer Gang fans!
