Today we’ve got something very special, Everypony! Ferality Bootleg brings us this explosion of multiple genres thrown together, and it sounds amazing! The song mostly is a mix of Electro House, Complextro and Bass House with loads of other things sprinkled in making for a unique and awesome experience. The song starts out with a remixed and seemingly darker version of the original beat until the Countess herself blesses us with the amazing vocals for this song. Especially in the refrain you can hear the changes made to the beat which are done so well they sound like they were part of the original, which is something very difficult to pull off, but Ferality nails it. Then as we reach the apex of the build up the drop happens engulfing you completely in a seemingly new beat that fits perfectly into the track and will have you bobbing your head along. Coloratura then joins in again and makes this awesome drop even better! The song then settles into a calmer beat which it maintains until the end.

We’re all equal here! To our greatest delight, SpinScissor made a fan song about Starlight in the S5 premiere and that eerie cutie mark vault! The lyrics are expressing Starlight’s perspective so well and it feels so epic, there’s vocal chops of her voice from the show as well which makes it even more emotional, and the old-school Dubstep-like instrumental feels so nostalgic!
My second favorite from P@D Eclipse, And In Darkness May She Reign is the kind of dark beauty from Tripon that we all wished for when we saw that name in the tracklist. Atmospheric, deep and mysterious, its progression is a real journey into unknown and faraway territories, and also a trip into fascinating lore that the musician crafted and that you can read from the description!
This incredibly powerful track from P@D: Ignite is one of my favorites, a shining example of the mastery of emotion and sound design held by NeverLastStanding. The strong basses and classic vocal chops evoke a flame, a passion, something powerful and driving and inspiring. Any time you feel your flame dwindling, listen to this song, and push yourself forward.
Lianella Stilson’s latest outing with Filacki is called We’re on Fire, and what an appropriate name considering this really is fire! The bounciness comes straight in right as it starts, and Lianella’s vocals are always a welcome treat. Check out that synth-filled drop! You’ll be bouncing for days.
It’s always good to hear relatively new talent putting out solid tracks you can enjoy! Skyshard is past due for some notoriety and Blaze Shot shows off a propensity for ambient design and creating a real vibe/energy from music! The piano is soothing, the melody is very pleasing to the ears, and the instrumental panning is engaging! Be sure to check out this song and give Skyshard a sub!
A first attempt at future house from Butterflight with their remix of Hoof Shaker, originally by GrazySmash and MEQA! This track basically starts with a buildup that quickly leads into a drop, which sounds fantabulous. The main melody’s generated with what sounds like detuned piano reminiscent of 90s house, which occasionally changes up a bit throughout the song. It’s bouncy and features the perfect tempo. Not bad for a song made in under 24 hours!
After some fine French House? FilledSilhoutte’s got you covered. Track 20 from Ponies at Dawn: Eclipse is The Personalities, which is also the final single from his upcoming album Rarity’s Fashion Playlist. The funk in this track is palpable; the samples featured are put to good use behind some bunchy drumlines. The highlights are when those samples are layered in effects and muffled, before building up right back into the action! Sweetness from start to finish. Expect Rarity’s Fashion Playlist to come out on December 18th!
As the genre would suggest, Blood Flavor is a complex and bass heavy track from Ponies At Dawn: Eclipse! Lots of distortion, lots of variety in the low end with many, many elements that remind me of the trippy moods of psytrance and the brashness of jungle terror. 7th Stive and ponycutz ensured to cram A LOT into this three minute journey! From the glitches, and the myriad of gritty sounds, to its unorthodox pulsing beat and frankly, It just works. Very, very well.
Koron Korak is back with a remix of the wonderful song from the series finale! Its got a wonderful rolling progression with the perfect atmosphere to set the mood! The snappy drums and the mixture of string and strong synth leads is a very welcome combo that I’d love to see more of! Every remix I’ve heard of this song is always a treat for me and this one is no exception!
