Daniel Ingram – Raise This Barn (Rod Steven Remix) | Eurobeat

Today we’ve got ourselves another remix of a show song. Rod Stevens brings us this amazing Eurobeat Remix of “Raise this Barn”. The track starts out with an instrumental part and a “Yahoo” from Applejack, and then, intro-ed by another “Yahoo”, the lyrics start and pretty much play out as the beat slowly builds up while every now and again an instrumental portion shines for itself. Then as Apple Bloom’s part starts the beat ramps up to 120% awesomeness. Later for the end of the lyrics the beat calms down a bit, and for the grand finale we end on another awesome instrumental portion and a “Yeah” from Apple Bloom.

Big thanks to my friend thecanderson, for proofreading this!

Nyancat380 – Indifferent | Deathstep

A heavy and dirty track about the insane multi-personality Pinkie Pie inspired by “Cupcakes”; this track sure punches you in the face! You know, I’ve come to know Nyancat380 with talks about music with him, about how there is much “method to his madness” and how he seems to do things with his musical arrangement by blending hardcore elements into anything he does. This song is a pretty good example of that! We get one side of Pinkie: her angry, crazy and violent side, and then you get deep and dark drops with heavy dubstep bass that just shows off Pinkamena’s vile and aggressive side. With a giggle from Pinkie, the song then speeds up and these really odd and weird almost D&B elements come into play. Quickly after, everything only gets more crazy as if to tell you that this is the twisted maniac Pinkie talking; she just wants to have fun with her toys with you. Nyancat380 is a mad maestro of hardcore electronic music and this track just tells you that right to you face. As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.

SweetF1RE – Princess of Love | Happy Hardcore

Today we’ve got ourselves a lovely Happy Hardcore track by SweetF1RE, featuring our favourite Princess of Love. The track begins with just a simple crash and then immediately starts with the beat. The beat in the beginning is very video game sounding and makes for a nice intro but quickly changes to something more pop sounding with the earlier beat coming in again later for a lovely combination. After that the beat changes and becomes a bit simpler to make way for the lovely Cadence vocal chops. As a little transition SweetF1RE uses an effect that frankly I’ve never heard before, and after that the beat returns once more to the pop-y beat but still keeps the vocal chops. Later the video game melody returns once more, but then we get a whole other beat making for an amazing progression.
Thanks to my good friend thecanderson for proofreading this.

CAPT – Trixie Likes Girls | Happy Hardcore

“Kawaii Hardcore” as the genre tag says on Soundcloud, Trixie Likes Girls is such a CUTE song responding to the craze of the headcanon-ed trans Trixie on Twitter, almost as cute as Trixie herself. This is a song of choice to play while you confess your feelings to Trixie. It is sure to be a success then, thanks to CAPT who gave their all into this fluffy track! Actually, Trixie will probably say that she already has Starlight, but aaaaanyway! Who could resist to express all the LOVE to Trixie!
By the way, CAPT is also an artist, check out their works on their DeviantArt gallery!

SeriousDamir – The Frost | Eurobeat

Did this Hearth’s Warming Eve come up a little bit short for you? Are you determined to cling to holiday cheer until you are absolutely certain that you have nothing further to fear from Windigos? Well, then might I suggest giving this excellent holiday-themed Eurobeat tune by SeriousDamir a spin or five! The fantastic instrumental opening sets the mood with both a wonderful sleigh bell rhythm and bell melody before the synth and drums kick in and launch the song into a blast of holiday cheer. SeriousDamir intended for this song to be an uplifting affair with the message that even though life can sometimes get you down you will always have friends who will help pick you back up, and the lyrics and vocals fit that theme perfectly. There are some really nice changes throughout the song where the Eurobeat melody is carried by the bells, keys, guitar, or vibraphone, and the artist also creates a nice choir effect heading into the chorus that compliments the main vocals really well. It’s all paired with a lovely lyric video complete with falling snow animation, so pour another glass cider and remember that good friends and holiday cheer will always be there for you!

PeKaNo – A Giant Pumpkin Is Trying To Eat Pinkie | Tribecore

PeKaNo has been around for a long time and it is always great to see a new song from them! This Nightmare Nights themed track has a lot of great elements, from the percussive horror-screeching, to the modulated synth, to the uber-catchy beat! It’s great to see niche sub-genres represented as well; tribecore is a fast form of free tekno and PeKaNo has a talent for using it to bridge fast, hardcore elements into something more melodic while maintaining all the intensity of a great Nightmare Nights track!

Daniel Ingram – Unleash The Magic (Nyancat380 Remix) | Trip-Hop

Ok, even for me, when you see Nyancat’s name on a track, the normal action is to strap in and hold on tight for his brand of over-the-top musical assault on your ears. HOWEVER he throws a very unexpected curveball here. A remix that is a mixing of his style with some pretty amazing hip-hop beats for one of the most underrated songs from the Equestria Girls. The song really plays up the vibe of Sci-Twi at a real crossroads in this song, and, honestly, it works. The lyrics are sped up and the vocals are distorted enough to really add to the drama of this song, and it’s a very welcomed delight thanks to the skills of Nyancat380!
As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.

As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself!
