DAϟH – This B**** Got Tentacle Hair | Breakcore / Speedcore

Made for the second race of the DustCar project, this Mane-iac-inspired song is a hardcore gem. Like a geode containing many marvels, DAϟH’s tune has loads of interesting and unique elements. Its kick is powerful and sounds perfect for the speedcore sections, but its melodic aspect isn’t lacking in quality either. The Mane-iac’s vocals were sampled too and put to good use. Speaking of sampling, the work on the breaks is also remarkable. DAϟH is finding his voice and style and it’s wonderful to see. Don’t forget to check out his and Cloudbeat‘s (aka Payyn) set from the Burning Mare 3 music festival.

Nyancat380 – Nightmares | Minatory/Deathstep

Today we’ve got ourselves a song by the amazing Nyancat380. This is honestly my first Deathstep song and I didn’t know much about the genre and what to expect but sweet Celestia did it drive a chill down my spine, but enough rambling let’s get to the bottom of this masterpiece. The track starts out with the sounds of a dark night and a beat that is sure to drive several chills down your spine, quickly the beat is joined by some extra tunes giving it even more awesomeness without loosing the scary vibe. Suddenly the beat moves to the background and something else takes over, it’s your scary build up! Boom the drop hits you like a freight train but quickly calms down again only to do the same thing again. The intense chorus will engulf you with it’s scary but hard wubs, then the song continues and goes over into some more vocal chops and another build up to an awesome chorus and in the end after the chorus calms down it starts again to end the song.

Nyancat380 – Bass Theory EP | Hardcore

Nyancat380’s EP has one very strong message. His talent to make hardcore genes blend with other eletronic music genres. It’s a tale of pure psychosis of one Lyra Heartstrings on her quest to find if humans or more so bronies are real. A quest that has done a number on her mind. Nyancat has this passion for horror storytelling with his creative music making for a popular headcanon in brony history his own thing. But enough talking. Let’s check this out, I may add that these genres of music may not be for everyone, but its really cool to hear the creative music making of this EP.

William Anderson – The CMC Go Crusading (Toby Macarony Remix) | Eurobeat

You know Toby, you just keep being one of the most delightful musicians in this fandom. My fellow bronies, it took 9 years, but this classic CMC theme just got the most excellent remix! Toby has transformed this theme with fast and exciting Eurobeat! Those high energy wavy harmonics, those uptempo drums, and pounding basslines take this charming song of the CMC trying to get their cutie marks and as the artwork shows, injects their crusading energy with nitro! You know this theme bronies, now have it with some pure adrenaline! One that Travis Odyssey did not do, but he sure does love it; that really should give you a hint about this track! (look in the comments) Oh, if only Applebloom, Sweetie Belle and Scoots knew where this journey would take them. As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.

∆•RYZ & Layl – Bestest Friends | Happy Hardcore

Today we have something special: a lovely Hardcore track about the Young Six by ∆•RYZ & Layl. The track starts out rather simple with a beat and a few background tunes and slowly starts building up more and more until it changes into an even more upbeat tune and eclipses in one of the happiest choruses I’ve ever heard, and then the song goes to the background while Twilight tells us that even if we don’t know it there are friends out there who look up at the same rainbow, after that the song once more gets to the chorus and this time even builds on it more creating a explosion of awesome tunes that is sure to make you bob your head along.

DAϟH – Saddle Arabian Heat | Gabber/Speedcore


If you’ve been sleeping on DAϟH, it’s best for you to open those ears. Gabber is not a genre for everyone though. This track holds some middle-eastern melodies blending very well into the hyper pace of gabber and hardcore elements shown. It creates this mythical adventure though a moonlit desert with pretty rad creative music making such as this. The results are the mixture of musical elements that should not work together. You know who else is really good at that? L-Train, the man behind the awesome metal operas. My point? DAϟH has the skill and talent to do the same. However, as I will always say, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.

Pinkamena Party – FLUTTERSHY’S PARADOXICALLY SOFT HARDCORE TEA PARTY | Compilation Album | Breakcore


Ladies ‘n’ gents, prepare yourself mentally, for an event regarding Pinkamena Party Crew’s new release, FLUTTERSHY’S PARADOXICALLY SOFT HARDCORE TEA PARTY! And what better way to peruse this album’s contents than to let the familiar name and voice of Venetian Snares guide you through the first track, Venetian Snares Teaches Fluttershy the Magic of Breakcore by Fetlocked? Fluttershy’s melodic lines in the aforementioned piece is immediately followed by the ambient, electronica-esque track first time under by cataidana & Enny Gima. For more of that sweet electronica nectar, follow up first time under with the Downtempo track Anti Depressants by Srgt. Moon. If noise is in your roster, check out the ambient noise track Feeding Antoine by So?ing Machine. Satisfy your natural cravings for syncopation with the Think-Break-populated, frantic masterpiece HACKD HAS BEEN TRAPPED IN A TIME LOOP SINCE BUCK 2014 AND LIFE & DEATH HAVE LOST ALL MEANING FOR HE SHALL KNOW THE RELIEF OF NEITHER by mycutiemarkisagun. Personally, I think the song would fare better with a longer title, but to each their own. Speaking of length, Heart & Blood by Xinovah is an eleven minute long piece containing haunting, goosepimple-giving melodies, lively gabber kicks, and even more hectic rhythms. To cut up the poignancy of Heart and Blood, you can subsequently listen to Kakofonous A. Dischord delete a message from a toy shop employee. And there is no better way to conclude the mania of the 29-track beaut that is this album, than to listen to asmr tea party with a magician by 16194. As always, proceeds from this album are donated to a worthy cause. This time around, it’s various organizations fighting for racial justice in the U.S.
