Single Purpose has come out with something truly freaky. True to its name, Nightmare Night sets out to spook its listener with samples from the fearful Nightmare Moon and dark-sounding synth chords. Once we’re given time to breathe after the DnB-esque drop kicks in, a group of haunting organs and choirs permeate the air, as if to really drive home that she’s taken over and there’s nothing Equestria can do. Truly a haunting piece, this one!
After some fine French House? FilledSilhoutte’s got you covered. Track 20 from Ponies at Dawn: Eclipse is The Personalities, which is also the final single from his upcoming album Rarity’s Fashion Playlist. The funk in this track is palpable; the samples featured are put to good use behind some bunchy drumlines. The highlights are when those samples are layered in effects and muffled, before building up right back into the action! Sweetness from start to finish. Expect Rarity’s Fashion Playlist to come out on December 18th!

Ready for the funk? The Girls Are Back In Town is the second single from FilledSilhoutte’s upcoming album DAZZLED ’92, and it’s a certified banger. Centered around the Dazzlings, this piece of history feels like a night-time drive through a neon-lit city. Future Funk has a certain magic that few genres can capture.
The introduction that we’re all so familiar with has never sounded so musically inspiring! Pianist Aaron Breeze has taken the Friendship is Magic theme music and combined it with jazz and gospel influences to create a medley of sounds in celebration of season 9 of My Little Pony. What better way to show homage? This rendition of Daniel Ingram’s timeless song shows such a musical proficiency that it becomes hard to believe it started with improvisation. The piece commences with Breeze’s piano, which serves as the cornerstone of the arrangement, accompanied by the embellishments of strings and woodwinds. An electric bass and subtle strokes on a drum set slowly lead the piece into an outburst of soul and funk sounds. The arrangement ends with one face-melting orchestral chorus, and the sophisticated sound of Aaron’s jazziest playing. These types of creations were what YouTube was made for, check it out!
Need some fandom-based future funk in your life? That’s exactly what Canterlot Funk’s here for. Based around a sample of And The Beat Goes On by The Whispers, the song depicts a futuristic Canterlot, where Rarity plans to set up a boutique somewhere in the bustling city. This track does a great job at taking an old sample and playing around with it to make it sound like it came from the future!
Allure is a single from FilledSilhoutte’s upcoming EP DAZZLED ’92, coming out on February 21st. Alluring, dazzling, charming are quite fitting to describe the trio of sirens that inspired this track, which in turn inherits these qualities. Moreover, we could add funky and groovy, for this track is at the intersection of future funk and French house and uses a handful of disco samples. The melody is catchy and the bass is fantastic and often takes the spotlight in a fashion similar to that of the Dazzlings themselves.
Never mind the BS, here’s FilledSilhouette! Track 5 from Equinity 02: Catalyst is a groovy French House piece that feels like a throwback to the late 90s. A sample which fades in before being joined by a beat makes up for the bulk of the song and you’re definitely not gonna get this out of your head any time soon. It’s also a track from Filled’s upcoming album, Rarity’s Fashion Playlist, so keep an eye out for when that sees a release!
Oh funk, we’ve got another Ponies at Dawn: Echoes release! The compilation’s 39th track (as well as the 9th track on Ephemeral II: Parallels) sees a collab between SDreamExplorerS and L-Train that combines elements of funk rock and death metal; this track has it all. Groovy and technical basslines, atmospheric leads, brutal drums; just pure funky heaviness. An unstoppable dream team, these two!
