Daniel Ingram – The Magic of Friendship Grows (Fascinatin Remix) | Future Bass

Anytime a remix of this beloved track comes around, it comes with the expectation of pure emotional bliss. Fascinatin, an unknown in our music community, gives a club feel with the heavy bass and some nice electro drums. The fluttering guitar riffs placement is a nice touch; Fascinatin seems to have something here with the electro band effects giving that iconic melody and vocal chops his touch on such a feel-good and emotional track. Please provide them with a sub on their channel, and keep an eye on this one! As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.

[P@D] BlackIceMusic & Namii – Memory | Future Bounce

The king of Pony Bounce is back! For Ponies at Dawn’s latest album, “Zenith” BlackIceMusic brings us yet another fire Future Bounce song, and this time around we’re graced with the gorgeous voice of Namii delivering the catchy lyrics!
This track is fire from the very beginning with a banger intro that features some small vocal chops and a lot of umpf before a little break sends us straight into the first verse. Here Namii‘s incredible voice takes center stage as the kick in the beat disappears completely for a bit before coming back later to tease the build up a little. The build up starts up as you’d expect with the drums building as our drop melody slowly comes in, and some more amazing vocal chops spice things up. Next we get to the drop, which is Future Bounce perfection! We get a vocal fill right as the build up ends that shoots us straight into what is a partially lyric-supported drop; we get a fire melody that makes you get up and dance; and we get a kick that’ll punch you into next Tuesday! As the drop slowly fades Namii’s lovely vocals ease us into Verse 2. For the second build up we go a different route, and instead of the usual drum build, the big kicks start straight away, creating a sort of “drop before the drop”, before we move into the actual drop that hits just as hard as the first one, getting you up and dancing like you never knew you could! Finally we end this banger track in a gorgeous outro, supported by a few more vocal chops.

Songs about MLP villains are nothing new, as musicians over the years have used creative talents to make music that embodies that character with their skill sets of music. Then you have this track from TCB and General Mumble from P@D: Zenith – a villain song with major style points! TCB captures the essence of Nightmare Moon with those sly drops and his trademark bass crunches, blended with these melodies that sound from the outer limits of the galaxy itself! Oh, and Mumble adds these 80’s like pop vocals that are far out and so deliciously speak for the motives of Dark Alicorn of the Moon herself. As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.

loopy x Koa – Pull Over (Siren Song) | Remix Album

A big hit off Ponies at Dawn’s Oceansong from a year ago was the single Pull Over (Siren Song). While popular in its own right, the collaboration between Koa and loopyy really took off after the duo pair launched a remix contest with the prize including admission to this remix album.

I spoke with Koa recently who said the album was conceived because it sounded like a fun idea. She told me that she really enjoys the diversity in creative elements that come about from such a contest. The number of directions different people can take with the same source is astounding! With 26 initial remix submissions, this winter was certainly full of unique interpretations of the same project!

AnNy Tr3e Remix – You wouldn’t know you are listening to Siren Song at first with this remix. Perhaps the best at subverting expectations, AnNy Tr3e brings a very big room feel to the album.

Payyn Remix – A big buildup at the very beginning lets you know something big is coming! The mix lulls you in with soft space-y vibes right up until it punches you in the face with heavy bass and crazy wubs.
