Disclaimer: This is about the remix from the original song, not the original song, and while at times it may seem like im talking down on one song, i intend to compare and contrast the two.
So my take on this remixed version of fluttERR from the original, well going back and listening to both for the first time, and by a side by side character i prefer the remix. Both are talented able and potential musicians, but something stood out to me more than the tune, cords, bass or vocals was the rhythm and theme of the music. The remix sticks with the same theme all the way through with a little surprises here and there. while the original seems to jump from theme to theme, its dubstep one second, hiphop, then electro the next and its rather distracting, but still a good song and im sure it was amazing in its prime. The remix is a fun remix you almost want to dance to, as stated in the comments you could get a wrong idea with some of the lyrics it depends on the person, it sticks with a select set of vocals to accommodate the beat and rhythm of the song. With how the song is set up you can tell its a remix, but in my opinion a rather good one, it has a great drop. the little addition of a new piece every few seconds such as a squeek, grunt (or moan whichever you prefer) the bass, is a rather fun addition, while this song is only 2 min 11 seconds its a great listen to and I recommend it! only thing i wish is that it was longer, great job PSFMer, with both the cover piece and the song, i cant wait to see more of your work in the future!
Today fellow bronies we’ve got ourselves a great track by Proto_ssin. The track starts out with the beat and some tunes and builds up until it transitions into a lovely piano solo and slowly adds other tunes again while still keeping the piano in the foreground until the beat takes over once again and builds up until it eclipses in the chorus and without any exaggeration as I heard the drop for the first time it nearly blew me out of my chair with its 220% awesomeness. After this banger of a chorus the beat calms down again only to after some time build up again to once more transition into this banger of a chorus. But wait there’s more! Proto_ssin makes you think the track is over but once more the piano picks up with a simple tune and slowly the beat return and brings us one more amazing chorus.
Today we’ve got ourselves an amazing track by FelonOnBass. This track starts out simple but quickly starts adding new tunes and building up slowly until it eclipses in a way that blew me out of my chair as I was listening to it for the first time, but wait there’s more! The drop never comes down again it just continues and builds up until it comes to another drop and maybe one of the best house beats I’ve ever heard. After that and also massive amounts of jumping on my part the beat sorta calms down, it’s calmer then before but still in this state of absolute house amazingness and just as you caught your breath from all the throwing down the utterly amazing second drop happens again and the song slowly ends.
Bounce (and a lot of similar music) isn’t one of those things I actively search out all the time, but I tend to really enjoy it when I come across it. Iced is a pretty active track that I might still call easy-listening, or dare I say it- “catchy.” Its somewhat simplistic but never gets boring, thanks to the abundance of samples sprinkled on top. And yes, it repeat several times before I even noticed.
Today we’ve got ourselves an amazing house track by SmD House. This track starts out rather simple with just one old-timey sounding beat, but quickly more stuff joins in and you realize that this is not your run-of-the-mill house track, the song goes through a bunch of different beats and this makes the song seem very lively. Also around the halfway point the song goes back to being very simple and here I should maybe mention that if I say a songs is being simple and only is a single beat sometimes. I don’t mean this as a criticism, I mean it as a compliment since not very much beats can make a great track on their own. Overall this song is rather calm and therefore perfect to just chill out for some time or as a background song for doing work.
Today we’ve got ourselves a Pony Life themed track by CAPT. This song is a lovely house track centered around the tropical feeling of the Potion Ocean. The tropical house tunes really create a feeling of laying on the beach of the Potion Ocean yourself and the voice samples from the show add just the final touch to make this amazing track even better. If you like horse house you’re gonna have a blast with this song and if you don’t like it, maybe give this song a shot either way. Who knows? You may like it too.
The lineup of musicians assembled for this collaboration seems like the answer to a challenge: Assemble a group of current fandom musicians that are not only talented and accomplished artists but also great ambassadors for the fandom and values to which the community aspires. Okay, now have that lineup write a fantastic song about how even small acts of kindness and friendship can have a huge impact on someone’s life. If there is an “Elements of Harmony Award”, then give it to this group, because that challenge has been thoroughly met! One of my favorite things about the fandom is how well musicians collaborate together and how collaborations are often so successful at melding the talents of their contributors, and this song is a prime example of that! First, the ultra smooth, vibrant, uplifting backbone of the song, the music that Tw3lv3 has created, lends itself so well to each successive contribution. Then come Koa’s fantastic vocals, which echo the wonderful song “One Small Thing” from “MLP: The Movie” and its amazing duet between Pinkie Pie and Princess Skystar. This message is one that especially resonates with Tw3lv3 and has so many echoes with her own journey as a musician in the fandom. These lyrics and her story is an amazing testament to the power of inclusion, of helping each other and finding ways to grow individually and collectively. MC-Arch then contributes his own amazing vocals, and it seems appropriate to have this message of perseverance come from someone who is continually advocating for more positive interactions within the community. Last (but in no way least) Drummershy lends his considerable percussive proficiency to the mix, creating an excellent passage of drumming that, as with the vocals in the song, stands out on its own before being swirled into the blissful mix. As the song sounds its final triumphant beats and the final notes soar and softly dissipate, it certainly feels as though a journey has begun, forged from struggle, fired by friendship, and triumphantly climbing onward.
Track 34 from ASOS: Chocolate is all about passion. This bouncy house track from LaunchSix features smooth vocals from Chasing Dawn with lyrical themes about musical passion while set to a lovely, homely set of chords and uplifting synth riffs. The flames that these musicians have lit will never burn out or be snuffed, and in this fandom, I definitely feel that one. Give these guys some love!
Today we got ourselves some more Sugar in the form of Dropper Vampire’s new big room house masterpiece Broken Soul and contrary to what you might believe after reading the title this is not a sad song, it’s actually a rather upbeat song. It already starts out with some awesome house tunes and no sign of calming down insight… at least until the beat suddenly stops and the lovely lyrics begin closely followed by a hook so catchy you can’t do anything but dance. After some lovely sample tunes the beat builds up until it once more transitions into the state of 120% cool. Suddenly the beat calms down a lot and slowly starts building up again with lyrics until we once more transition into the hook. After some more singing the beat builds up a last time. Now let’s focus on the lyrics for a second: The lyrics are essentially about someone in a relationship that broke and it really had a deep impact on the singer who seems angry at her partner.
Welcome everypony to A State of Sugar: Chocolate, the newest album from our friends over at Cider Party. For now we’ve got ourselves a lovely house track by Voltex Pixel. The track starts out amazing and believe me when I say it gets even better! I personally love all things horse house but even if you don’t, this track is going to make you dance either way. Voltex Pixel also keeps his near PMV style music videos with various artworks of, in this case Fluttershy and gameplay from ‘Them’s Fightin Herds’. This track is sure to lift your spirits with its happy upbeat tune and the combination of Future House and Future Bounce makes for an amazing dance track.
