Nostalgia, nostalgia, nostalgia! TheTaZe’s rendition of WoodenToaster‘s 2011 classic Beyond Her Garden takes the original vocals and lays them over a brand new instrumental that honestly rivals Glaze’s own work! With a lot of passion in this work, TheTaze tried his best, and it’s pretty much there!
Coming in strong after a banger of a track is another banger by The Empty Tomb! I don’t know how he does it, I swear. One second he drops an amazing Future Bass VIP and the next literally a few days later is a slapper Future Funk track. After hearing the original sample which is used through the entire song, George Benson’s Give Me the Night, which was definitely full disco, Tomb’s track takes that old disco feel and flips it on it’s head. I’m not kidding, by adding great sounding percussion and modern EDM kicks and snares, it changes the flow from your parent’s disco to something that everyone will want to blast through their speakers. I swear he’s like this fandom’s version of Jonas Aden, always releasing bangers all the time!!
Wow I have been gone for a bit and I am sorry about that. But I return to action with a song of pure bliss from JTH. This song invites you to join Fluttershy under the stars, in the meadows of equestria. The smooth relaxing chill beats of this track will have you right with her. You’ll be telling her you deepest throughs. You’ll feel all the stress leave you as she listens to you talk. The song honestly is deep and will ease any anxiety of your day. Just like Fluttershy would do to anyone who is stressed out. She’ll give you faith that you can do anything. JTH’s sound continues to amaze me. It’s wonderful to know not only does he put out great remixes but original music as well. As always this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
Sometimes you gotta let it rain. Track 2 from Silva Hound’s latest album Equestrian Stories: The Prelude (not to mention his first MLP album since 2011!), NIRIK is a bouncy bass house piece that’s built around an edited sample of A Kirin Tale. From the first second to the end, the bass doesn’t let up, making for an intense electronic listening experience. Also, peep the Autumn Blaze pinup!
7th Stive’s back. Call the local authorities. Equinity 02: Catalyst‘s 24th track is Crime Wave, a criminally catchy bass house composition. The sound of sirens wailing in the background give the track the feeling of walking out on a big night in town and taking on the club. Along with the requisite heavy synths and bass are various chopped samples, such as dialogue from the show and even a Windows XP error sound. It’d be a crime not to get up to this!
A wonderful gift to the community and to the ponies by DolceTikky for the new year, this musical celebration in the pony way is starring such cute melodies on the guitar along the comfy beats, and even features a cover of the Theme Song! I am so happy to see a new release by DolceTikky!
The second installment in Equinity’s power compilation album series, Catalyst blasts sounds from the future and masterpieces all around from many pony musicians and familiar faces. Newcomers participated as well, and in harmony everypony created this wonderful painting of memories shared. From the Zecora-themed Mumbo Jumbo by Cynifree, to the dank Brohoofdab from the duo of TPressleyJ and ShobieShy, to the divine DnB beauty Sea Stack from Tw3Lv3 and Niłch’i Poni, to the mega collab opener of the album… and many, many more inbetween waiting for you to discover them, if you haven’t downloaded the album already! All funds raised will go toward TeamTrees! Kudos to Equinity staff and all the contributing musicians for their dedication and incredible work, certainly acting as a catalyst for even more wonders to come!
Fyrefox, an alias of Dynamite Grizzly decided to give some love to the unarguably best zebra of the show. This very dancy techno track from noise.horse’s Generic Christmas Album by the Noisiest of Horses is heavy on vocal samples and has some of those old one-of-a-kind synths. It also contains references to the eponymous alleged very first music made in the fandom.
Keeping with the Equinity theme, we have Cynifree with Mumbo Jumbo! Equinity 02: Catalyst‘s 26th track is a throwback to season 1 territory with references to Zecora in the tribal-esque beat and samples of her dialogue from Bridle Gossip placed throughout in time with the rhythm. The perfect soundtrack for a race through the forest.
Never mind the BS, here’s FilledSilhouette! Track 5 from Equinity 02: Catalyst is a groovy French House piece that feels like a throwback to the late 90s. A sample which fades in before being joined by a beat makes up for the bulk of the song and you’re definitely not gonna get this out of your head any time soon. It’s also a track from Filled’s upcoming album, Rarity’s Fashion Playlist, so keep an eye out for when that sees a release!
