Today we’ve got a shipping song from the lovely Vyprae. This song starts out with an already amazing eat that slowly adds more stuff to make it feel like the masterpiece it is. It later adds a lovely drum loop and builds up to a drop honestly made in heaven, with sweet vocal chops and the beat taken over by it this makes you wanna jump up and down until you’re parents complain you woke them up. After that the first beat takes over again this time adding even more awesome stuff. Shortly thereafter we once more get this lovely drop with all the vocal chops. Without any exaggeration this is the best OMFG style track I’ve ever seen.
So how do you make a track better when it was already featured on P@D: Skyward? (You can listen to that track here). I’d say this is upping the game here.
So… If you like a track about how annoying Trixie is, then here you go, fans of Trixie. As said by my colleague Canatime in our in Equinity 3 album review, the track is full of elements that really highlight Trixie’s personality traits, being that they are annoying and cute at the same time. As said by him, a delightful reese bass sound, incredibly mixed drums, a smooth lead and even cheeky vocal chop all highlight Trixie’s character in a well composed package. Single Purpose sure has a winner here. As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.

Whirlwind is not just a drummer in this fandom, oh no, my fellow bronies. He is quite the musical storyteller. It takes special talent to take real dreams and translate them into relatable music. His debut album tells a story of his OC seeing Equestria. It’s amazing to me how much MLP:FiM means so much to people, and how dreams like this can translate into music such as this. The elements in use are there, creative uses of ambient, electronia, IDM. even a bit of drone, D&B and even glitch-hop. These all bring out the experience of so many ups and downs, drama-filled excitement or moments of peaceful bliss. Whirlwind alone should be commended in the creative experimentation of electronic music that he’s trying to break into, but enough of me talking… Let’s have a listen.

In season with summer, PegasYs introduces a remix of a piece from his duo with Faulty. PegasYs has utilized the house elements of the original to create a commending glitch-hop tune, with an emphasis on hop! The original consists of a fantastically dubious artist’s name and romantic vocal work from ThatMusicBrony. PegasYs’s remix ushers in the heftiest of wubs along with the sunny addition of steel drums. After the aforementioned wubs, the tune slowly reverberates and bit-crushes itself out of existence, leaving you with the temptation of the replay button.
With an ambient and grand curtain-raiser as the intro, this neurohop track titled Null is a tasteful manifestation of rhythm and neuro-styled sound design. Slow and heavy is the name of the game in the presence of MEQA’s progressions, and before the last beat-heavy section of this piece is an ambiance that is as sonically intimidating as it is suspenseful. This opus also befittingly has a spot on the great Ponies at Dawn album, Ignite! Enjoy!
Challenger approaching… VibePoniez – an electronic label formed by TheTaZe, Steryotype and Tw3Lv3 – has recently released their first full-length compilation album Skyscrapers, a collection of 20 songs with chill vibes primarily in the electronic genre. Our opening track is a remix of the Single Purpose song Setbacks brought to you by TheTaZe, featuring heartbreaking voice samples from I Am Octavia. The next track comes from fandom lo-fi giant Steryotype, CafeIn3Parts. True to its name, it goes through three phases of smooth, chilled out lo-fi hip hop as we’ve come to expect from him. The album also features appearances from PeKaNo, GrazySmash, Paloris, TCB and many more. If you like your electronic music to be chill and uplifting, you’re in for a treat with this album.
A big blast from the past; StrachAttack and Zaktt‘s red hot banger Infrared returns in VIP form! This new rendition is slower than the original, but it’s by no means lost its edge. Plenty of powerful midtempo elements are peppered in, like the powerfully heavy bass and trippy synths in the background. It’s amazing what a difference 5 years can make!
Ready for some fire? Track 62 from the upcoming Ponies at Dawn album Ignite is These Thoughts of Mine, and hoo boy… Using samples from A Kirin Tale, Cynifree’s latest outing is truly something special. The sound design is truly atmospheric and haunting, turning the original song into a brand new piece of art. He really went out of his comfort zone here, and the result is unbelievable. Be sure to check out Ignite when it releases on May 2nd!
After well over half a decade in the making, Mogul Dash’s collab with Pinkie Rose and Niko de Ruiz (formerly known as Buffalo Brony) is finally here! While a shorter version was uploaded in late 2018, this is the finished product and it was definitely worth the wait. Pinkie Rose delivers fantastic harmonic vocals while Niko puts forth a strong set of rapped verses over a catchy instrumental with powerful bass and drums reminiscent of an 80s track!
