Elevative – Daybreak (feat. BluNoseReindeer) | Hardcore

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 4 July 2018.

Elevative, previously known as DJ Rod, has up this point been known more for his DJing (which has brought him to the mainstage at BronyCon later this year), but this track is a good example of how he’s growing as a producer as well. Featuring some awesome vocals from BluNoseReindeer, it focuses heavily on a nice lead synth throughout a fairly minimal drop that nonetheless still has some nice energy to it.


Dreamer – Adieu (Whirly Tail Remix) | Happy Hardcore

Relatively new DJ Whirly Tail knows how to make an uplifting remix, and his take on Dreamer’s Adieu is exactly as advertised! The track is fun and upbeat, making great use of the bass to establish the quicker tempo. Whirly also added in his own chilled out section in the middle featuring a grand piano over the synth for a few bars to really change up the track while still keeping the uplifting tone. Dreamer’s original synth tracks were very well composed and Whirly Tail knew a fun song when he saw it, making some great edits in order to play to those strengths!


UndreamedPanic – The Outdoors (InklingBear Remix) | UK Hardcore

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 20 May 2018.

Panic’s track The Outdoors was only released a few days ago, but InklingBear/fractilx has pushed out a super cool remix in no time at all! Taking the progressions and vocal elements from the original and re-working them to 175 bpm hardcore goodness, the pulsing synths keep the energy going the whole way through.


John Kenza – Celestial Dance | UK Hardcore

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 17 May 2018.

John Kenza’s music is always really awesome to see, and as with all his tracks, this one’s an awesome mixture of professional quality and great fun. Some great orchestral and high-pitch vocal chop elements build up to a drop that’s full of energy and has some great melodic composition. Check it out for something that’s sure to get you dancing!


Lycan Dese Beats – Beats 4 Everfree | Compilation Album | Multi-Genre

Three years ago, after running a successful radio show about brony music for several months, Lycan got a bunch of musicians to pitch in some songs to make a compilation album featuring them. Fast forward to now, and this annual album is now in its 4th edition with the release of Beats 4 Everfree. The primary difference this time round is that the album is dedicated to Everfree Northwest, for which Lycan is the musical coordinator this year, and the funds raised from the album sales will go to EFNW’s chosen charity, the Washington Autism Alliance & Advocacy. 14 tracks from a group of consistently solid musicians and producers take this album through all sorts of genres – electronic to orchestral – so there’s something in here for everyone’s tastes!

Beats 4 Everfree is available to download for any given price from the Lycan Dese Beats Bandcamp.


Noizepon – Defpon-1 | Gabber

It’s like a fast change… first the party then hell on earth.

Two creative minds in the experimental/hard music scene in the brony fandom, Phoxi/PVNK and NextLevelDerp joined forces to create an alias called Noizepon, a wild adventure we have when we listen to this track. This track really amazed me, the high distortion and the aggressiveness of the sound and texture makes this track one of the best Gabber songs ever put by a brony, outside Pinkamena Party! This all in 2-track EP that will melt your ears with awesomeness and destruction! Good job both of you!
