Remixes of classics are always welcome, and TLB’s take on the original from Assertive Fluttershy off the very first Balloon Party album is certainly a delight. A lovely mood, powerful drops, and soft melodies flowing like water, all bring to the remix lots of nostalgic and blissful vibes.
A wonderful and tasty mix of various genres, Zizkil’s new release amazes as elements from Future Bass, Electro and French House get synthesized to result in an impressive banger of many wonders. Heavy, funky, chill, dark, glitch hoppy… a real masterpiece of senses from Zizkil which would definitely lit Some cool night club place in Canterlot!
Let The Sun Rise continues to inspire, and another amazing remix has surfaced courtesy of Metapony, delivering yet a brand new take on the original! This Future House has got an enjoyable sci-fi beat, and incredible drops overwhelming yourself with positive emotions and the power of music. Much beauty and emotion in this remix indeed!
For their 500 subscribers special, TCB went all-out and composed two tracks infused with beautiful pony vocal chops and displaying a mighty progression full of emotional vibes! You can grab them here. Another token of TCB’s talent, and two wonderful additions to their streak of amazing and unique tunes!
Who’s the sauciest pony of them all? I have no idea but surely Princess Luna is pretty high up there. Xavi is pretty accustomed to whipping up hot tunes and this one is no different, with some contemporary future house that bounces around with a combination of shuffling percussion and heavy pluck-style bass sounds.
Xavi’s latest masterpiece is here everypony, and this one is especially crazy. In all the good ways. What originally was a Future Bass experiment turned into a much Vapor-inspired Future Trap banger of many wonders, where blissful whomps, divine vocal chops, sick sound design, and far-out distortions are all creating an incredible experience to replay and replay again. The second vapor-ey part is really hitting hard and is very powerful along that amazing soundscape Xavi-chi is known for. The heavier vocal chops parts featuring Giggly Maria‘s vocals are also very intense and I can’t get over how incredible that bass synth is. As for the Vapor cover art from RacoonKun, it is completing the experience very nicely (I recommend his artworks by the way, tons of
sexy great stuff).
Hearing a new song from TCB is fantastic enough, but having an entire EP is quite the treat. I didn’t really know what to expect going into it, but it really has a perfect variety of songs that all contain really unique vocal chops! I love the fact that there are vocal chops of characters you don’t hear vocal chops of often in here, really makes each song iconic! Read more about it after the break.
Firelight was a pretty awesome collaboration between Aurelleah and Kadenza, so it’s cool to see AJ Young giving it a remix. PegasYs‘ voice works just as well here as it did in the original, with a sort of trap-style build up going into synth-led drop that nonetheless has some appreciable bass presence. Whilst it doesn’t diverge a whole lot from the original in overall atmosphere, the slightly different pacing and future bass feel to it is pretty cool.
This was a nice surprise to hear on Amity – not just the fact that Silva Hound got involved with Ponies At Dawn, but released a future bass track for the first time in years. This remix of Peppermint, from the previous P@D album, keeps the uplifting futurey feel of the original, but sits at the more trap-influenced end of the future bass spectrum, with those classic 808 kicks and snares.
To honor the emotion from Awakening and more particularly the incredible Eve from LucienMusique, our dear ExplodingPonyToast brought to life a remix full of subtle emotional callbacks to the original, yet also creating a brand new emotional journey of sound among the chill vibes and Future influences. The last part is in my opinion the emotional pinnacle of the remix, and doesn’t fail to make me teary-eyed again as I’m writing this and relistening to it. A torrent of masterful and passionate melodies paying much tribute to the melodies of the original, and a perfect alchemy of sounds resulting in powerful magic!
