Vibeponiez: Downtown wastes little time in its 7th release by immersing you in the sandy beaches of Maretime Bay with Sunny Starscout with this fly track by PHES! Sunny insists that it is party time with an ice-cold smoothie and the waves looking prime for surfing. The melody, the slapping bass, and the 90’s beach vibe with the smooth lo-fi beats make you feel like you’re enjoying the overcast of sunray as Sunny is building a sand castle with Izzy, Hitch, Pipp, and Zipp. Oh, and those soft radio vocals oozing with the chill factor as waves are heard over the boardwalk of Maretime Bay. As always, This Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
BlueBrony – The Magic of Hearth’s Warming (feat. Agatan, Flitterkriz & Sakairi Melodious) | Funk / Orchestral / Jazz
Hearth’s Warming songs are always one of my favorite parts of the season and this one hits it out of the park! I’ve known about the making of this song for a while but everything I heard massively understated how awesome this is! Before the song itself starts we get a quick holiday skit, involving all the musicians, I won’t touch on that too much because this is about promoting the song, but let me tell you it’s hilarious and provides a good transition to the song itself.

PumpkinZ – Black Night | Drumfunk
PumpkinZ delivers a delightfully atmospheric and groovy track with this drumfunk effort! The shimmering opening synths pair with the background art to transport the listener into a night scene that feels alive and energizing like a summer night full of possibilities. A lively melody with a folky feel combines with a groovy bassline and quick percussion, and we’re off on an adventure! The rise into the drop has a cool “bottle filling to the top” vibe, and the chorus brings in some sweet chops at the perfect time. The quieter parts that follow have their own variation on the melody, bringing the percussion in and out, teasing at some as-yet intangible possibility. This is a really well-constructed song with a super catchy melody and delightful groove, so please check it out, and big thanks to the artist for seeing the creation of the song through to the end!
BlueBrony – Rush Hour Cadence | Nu-Disco
In the third installment of his princess-themed album, “The Princess Cycle,” BlueBrony presents “Rush Hour Cadence” – a funky, upbeat disco track inspired by the princess of love. A short intro with some fun plucks on the electric guitar quickly leads to an up-tempo drop with some funky disco sound design that periodically pulls back to make room for some smooth vocals. An interesting end to the piece is created by sounds reminiscent of a phonograph of yesteryear that slowly fades out. There’s even the sound of a record disc being popped out as the music comes to an end. Featuring plenty of horns, guitar, and fun synths, this track feels like a refreshing blast from the past with a modern twist. Be sure to check out this fun piece, as well as the other princess-themed tracks on BlueBrony’s newest album, “The Princess Cycle.”
Daniel Ingram – Cafeteria Song (Lexie Remix) | Future Funk
Well, everypony, the very first Equestria Girls movie might have been out for a while now (8 years!), but that doesn’t mean that we won’t still get awesome remixes of its songs! Today, I bring to you a great new remix by Lexie. This track starts out right away with the lyrics and then quickly brings in the funk. We also get this awesome bass guitar (that goes on through pretty much the entire song) followed soon by some great, funky synths and even some trumpets! Soon we get into some awesome vocal chops and a backspin effect, which I didn’t expect to hear, but it certainly increases the funk of this song! As we leave the vocal chops we get back to the normal lyrics with some more bass and some more trumpets. We end this track with some more of the great vocal chops.
This was proofread by the great theCANderson. Big thanks to him!
Tadpole – A Song That Probably Plays Inside Gummy’s Head (feat. Kids Attacking a Spider) | Acid House
I first thought that was Dashie screaming in the video! Either way, this being what plays inside of Gummy’s head seems accurate! There needs to be more “Gummy! What should I bake? What should I bake?” (Pinkie’s voice) though! Please enjoy this Acid House comeback track from Tadpole that is both fun and sounding sick!
PHES – LIVE FROM MANEHATTEN | French House / Future Funk
PHES’ debut release under the new alias is reminiscent of previous musical ventures with the Rarity-ness and the sophisticated French House greatness that the mare sure would appreciate!! The Funk is very present as well and I’m sure Oliver Biscuit would approve. A tasty gem by Rarity’s standards!
[Equinity] PSFMer – Coffee Beans | Drumfunk
Equinity’s latest album, Immersion, has just been released! Along with many epic new tracks comes Coffee Beans by PSFMer. Powerfully introspective and rhythmic, wafting waves of base undergird the track throughout. A call-of-the-wild, ambient atmosphere replete with bird cries and other exotic animal sounds creates a sense of being transported into the jungle in the midst of a mystical, magical safari. Complex rhythmic drum patterns add to the feel of an epic journey into the wild, where both danger and the promise of high adventure intermix and irresistibly beckon. Some sweet bass work adds to the deep, almost underwater feel of the piece, very appropriately in line with Equinity’s theme, Immersion!
FilledSilhoutte – Rarity’s Fashion Playlist | Album | Future Funk / French House
FilledSilhoutte is back with their last album under their aforementioned alias and I have to say its a really treat of funky and fresh vibes all around! A great assortment of fifteen future funk and french house tracks and if you aren’t already familiar with Silhoutte’s style and flare, you are in for a TREAT!

Single Purpose – Nightmare Night | Neurofunk
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!
