Awesome vocals from Lyde Octave and Vylet himself, a funky feel and some killer sound design all combine to make this new track one of my recent favourites from him. I’m a sucker for good glitch hop so it’s pretty awesome to see some more of it from Vylet. The combination of jazzy groove and contemporary bass design is something that seems to come pretty well to Vylet and it definitely suits his style.

In case some of you didn’t know, we’re very much behind on posting current music, so we thought one way to help us catch up would be to compile all the Hearts and Hooves music into one post for you to enjoy! Catch it all after the break…
NB: Some of these songs were originally posted on Equestria Daily by ExplodingPonyToast, with a note and link to the original posts where necessary.
The remixes of Start Again seem to keep on coming… Here’s one by Filly in the Box that takes a sorta midtempo approach with harsh saws and the like in the drop.
lia;quo’s become a regular on recent P@D albums, and of course made an appearance on this installment with her usual complextro sound in this remix of Equestrian Territory, originally by Pony Music and ThatMusicBrony. And interestingly enough, it features live performances on various instruments including Taiko Drums, violin, and glockenspiels!
P@D 🎵 hype 👏 time 🕖 with 👏 Cider 🍺 Party 🎉 ! With the new Ponies At Dawn album dropping this Friday, the Cider Party pre-releases continue with this banger from the fantastic MrMehster and N. Hollow. I haven’t seen N. Hollow’s name since their last track with MrMehster, but they’re still just as sharp as ever – great to see fresh talent in the rap scene! Go check this out for an idea of what to expect this Friday…
Horse Music Central, a group for brony musicians, have released their first compilation album, organised by FruityFusion, Spectra and Violin Melody, called Horse Music Vol. 1! This album, comprising 14 tracks, features relatively established artists such as Ryazan, fractilx and FruityFusion himself, as well as other new and upcoming artists such as Filly in the Box, Intersekt and Lunar Dance. With the money made from the album going towards charity, it’s definitely something worth checking out if you like compilation projects (I know I do!). You can find the album on bandcamp for free or donation here!
One of the many gemstones found along the journey of Voyager, Del Rom’s Ignition gets a YouTube release and it is with much pleasure that I’m posting this masterpiece of a track here. Not only the track is full of inventive and utterly beautiful parts with both melodic instrumental and divine vocal chops, but its emotion convey so much of the theme of the album in some way, displaying mighty power and filling the soul with awe (with moments like at 2:16 that always make me about to tear up), providing a very emotional experience over a solid progression, much like the journey evoked by the album.
MintFritter serves us with a darker take on the Flim&Flam brothers in musical format, bringing all the Nightmare Night-ish frightening vocals and haunting mood from the instrumental, not failing to make the two villains sound more fearsome. Let’s hope there will be some heroes to save the world… again!
Budzy is undoubtedly one of the best dubstep producers around at the moment, and he shows that off here with a VIP of his track Surprise Surprise. This VIP keeps the heavy yet melodic vibe throughout the whole piece, however it really switches things up when it gets to the second drop. The swap to glitch hop breathes new life into the feel of the track and helps to keep it interesting the whole way through. Definitely one of Budzy’s most impressive works!
I knew people liked making special songs for Nightmare Night, but I wasn’t quite prepared to be flooded with new music this morning. We’d never get through them all if we posted them individually, so read on for 10 fantastic Nightmare Night songs! Yes, 10!
