Vanessa Hudgens – Gonna Be My Day (Rod Steven Remix) | Eurobeat

Well, this just feels right: this wonderfully upbeat song has been given a deft Eurobeat treatment! This remix launches straight into the chorus vocals repeated over the original melody followed by an encouraging “let’s go!”, and it feels like the party is now in full swing, which the irrepressible Sunny would absolutely appreciate. The gloriously upbeat Eurobeat melody and percussion support the arrangement without running roughshod over the original, which is a credit to the artist’s skill and experience working with this genre. The marrying of styles is so good that you’d swear that the song always sounded this way. Let’s get dancing!

Sofia Carson – Glowin’ Up (Acid Applejack Remix) | Happy Hardcore

Alright, everypony, it’s time to get moving! Acid Applejack has taken this super slick tune from the G5 movie and pumped it up with a great happy hardcore delivery that retains the light spirit of the original. The original opening is sped up and repeated along with a nice synth melody to launch the song, and the positive intensity is maintained throughout with a sped up bassline and synths pushing the melody accompanied by uptempo percussion. The arrangement and great production gives the song a well-constructed feel, and by the time the final bass note fades out you’ll feel ready to take on the world!

SpinScissor & Nyancat380 – BRUSH ADDICT | Hyperpop

A dream collab that was meant to happen, two of our regulars teamed up for a magical result. Colgate aka Minuette got a new song, and a pretty dank one at that. Not only the cool and light-hearted lyrics are making for an awesome reminder of brony spirit, but the vocals come in all shapes and sizes, with a cuteness overload happening several times during the track. As for the instrumental, it’s sparking from the fusion of the two musicians’ skills! Give it up for SpinScissor and Nyancat380 everypony!

Likonan – Celestia’s Riddle 2021 (The Riddle Parody) | Eurodance

(Click on “Watch on YouTube” to access the video, since embeds have been disabled for this video.)
Oh wow, I never thought I’d see a cover/parody of this song, but yet here we are! The original is an older classic that I used to listen to on loop, and this parody is just as good! Now, before I start tripping over my words in nostalgia, let’s get started with the instrumental: As you might expect it’s close to the original. In a lot of parts you can really hear the original, but if you remember what I’ve said back for the BlackIceMusic Remix of Anthropology, that isn’t a criticism but a compliment since you can also really hear that this is Likonan’s very own masterpiece. We get a chorus part that’s similar to the original, and then in other parts we get a more country sounding melody as both melodies alternate with a few different bits in between. I have to give thanks to Likonan for putting up the instrumental as a separate video (you can find it here) as it was a big help in evaluating and appreciating what makes this part of the song so amazing!
Now the lyrics: The lyrics are pony greatness! They match the flow of the original song nicely while being a nice tribute to the show. In the chorus sections we get references to the Mane Six and during the other parts there are references to some secondary characters!
Proofed by theCANderson, big thanks to him!

[ETC] Payyn – How to be Popular | Hardcore

A fantastically frantic twist on the song “Becoming Popular“, this track from the latest ETC album is a treat for any fan of intense music! Opening with a stripped down version of the melody, the song goes along merrily until it takes a sharp turn and descends into delightful distortion. What I especially enjoy about this track is how it takes such an elegant song delivered by a pony who is the epitome of grace, straps a couple of rockets to it, and sends it screaming down the tracks. Awesome.

[ETC] Acid Applejack – Celestia Rebirth | Frenchcore

This awesome track from Equestrian Terror Corps’ latest album opens with an eerie melody and ramps up with a Celestia vocal chop from “A Canterlot Wedding” before the fast-paced percussion kicks in. There is a delightful transition that brings in the distorted bassline, which really kicks things into high gear. The song mellows in the middle before ramping back up, and blaring sirens pair with the full arrangement to great effect! An awesome contribution to the album!

DAϟH strikes again, with a composition for the new Corequestria album that is as creative as ever from the musician! Tasteful and artful Gabber in the purest form, where imagination meets skill. The piece and its progression is quite rich and it tells a story just by itself!

[ETC] Nyancat380 – Moondancer’s Trauma | Hardcore

Nyancat380 defied expectations yet again, with a mind-blowing track made for the latest Corequestria album that just dropped! This one is themed around Moondancer and the heavy sounds and atmosphere are doing wonders at reflecting all those suppressed feelings and the moment when she snapped in the episode. Through use of vocal samples of the Canterlot mare and effects on them too, the track showcases some top-notch thematic aspects and it’s such a delight, making you so excited to find out the next part of the song!

KaraJam – Plastic Horse (feat. Sound Bandit & Amy Bestevez) | Hyperpop

Hyperpop seems like the perfect genre for celebrating the joys of getting lost in imagination while playing with plastic horses. The amped up, super sweet instrumental zips the song along through pastel landscapes of bubbly synths and bouncy beats. The lyrics are fantastic, delivered perfectly by the collaborating artists, and the whole package pairs so well with the visualizer. Would life be better as a plastic horse? There no way of knowing, but at least we have this song to help us get there in imagination land!

Vale & Fl0 – Hyper! Twilight-chan | Happy Hardcore

This track is a great example of one of my favorite types of pony music! It’s a short and sweet happy hardcore song focusing on the Princess of Friendship herself, Twilight, and it has that classic pony song sound/vibe that I just love, complete with Twilight voice samples from the show (and a few anime ones too)! Overall, it’s a wonderful song and fun to listen to!
