Totalspark – Downstairs | Jazz / Glitch Hop

This innovative track pairs glitch hop with jazz in a groovy, swingy and absolutely superb way. The hoofstep intro leads into a well-produced and very fun track. The beeps, growls, and bzzts are organized like a classic jazz piece, and the saxophone-esque synth halfway really drives the point home. Anyone who likes either glitch hop or jazz should give this a listen – or 5!

BlueBrony – Roomies | Electro Swing

We don’t often get Electro Swing in the community, and it’s such a shame considering the bliss of the genre! BlueBrony got us covered though, and here’s one elegant and cool piece delivering the musician’s take on the genre with all the jazzy instruments and melodies! Imagining that this could be the result of Vinyl and Octavia’s combined efforts and passion, feels awesome too!

StrachAttack – SHAPESHFTR | Hybrid Glitch Hop

New Chrysalis-scented StrachAttack banger, everypony!! Second track of the recently released Burnout EP, this new VIP of the classic Shapeshifter deserved a labeling as an original, as it redesigns the whole track with new sound design and progression and comes up with original ways to blend genres, while keeping the melodies and original concept. Never has our bug queen sounded (and looked) so sexy! Also props for the amazing visuals!

FruityFusion – Rundown | Electronic / Midtempo

Always love FruityFusion’s work & ability to make out of the box sounding tracks! This track is always moving around & I adore how that’s handled. A really pretty intro with reverbed elements & backing fx to then fade into the main bassline is pretty clever & delivers the flow of this track. This is the sort of stuff you don’t hear much in the fandom & I love it a lot. Especially that great main bass throughout the song. A really great track worth checking out!

Ahhhhhhhhhhhh, this remix song is sooooo good. I love the melody in here & the drums are so punchy. The way the vocals are used are fantastic & make me feel good when “discord’ comes. INOESFNSEOINONOIGE. BUT WHEN THE VOCAL CHOP BITS COME, I LOVE THAT A LOTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT. It’s really iconic & then the backing kind of pluck thing the best part is THE MAIN MELODY. A reallllllllllllllllllllllllllllllly cool remix that is

Vylet Pony – Out of Your Mind (feat. Lyde) | Glitch Hop

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 21 February 2017.

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.
