Branrich VanIstner – A Night With A Siren | Jazz/Lounge

Shall we turn out the lights? A Night With A Siren is a slow, sensual jazzy piece that feels like the ideal soundtrack for spending the night with your siren of choice. Accompanying the track is a visual of Adagio Dazzle slowly swaying in a dark room as a green fog surrounds her, almost as if it’s a byproduct of her siren allure. It’s not too often we see jazz in the fandom!

[P@D] Replacer – Passing By | Chillout

With the start of the new year as well as a new decade, why not celebrate it with a soft ballad? Track 68 from Ponies at Dawn: Echoes is a chilled-out piece from Replacer that has a heavy emphasis on piano. The soft atmosphere builds up beautifully by having the piano lead the track with the faint sounds of an organ keyboard in the background before the drums and bass join in on the action. The soft dynamics and progression of the song give it a psychedelic mood, like a Pink Floyd or The Doors song. Sit back, and let Replacer take you on a journey back in time…

[P@D] ExplodingPonyToast, LutariFan & ThatMusicBrony – Start Again (Too Taken Remix) | Future Bass

Drift away with Too Taken’s remix of Start Again, perfect for any serene background. It incorporates the vocals of the original overtop the most cavernous drums and electric piano harmonies until a surprisingly nonchalant drop of bells and FM sounding synths. Glittered with jazzy chords, saxophones, and an electric piano solo near the end, it serves as a grace to the golden oldie that is the original. Wafting through time comes with ease with this colorful track on repeat.
This track is available as part of Ponies at Dawn Eternal.

Rarity Advocate – Rarity | Jazz

A unique piece, this one. This song almost seems to transcend genre definitions with all the elements in this song. It combines elements of music from many generations, such as implementing electronic bass and synth lines with jazzy drums and a very prominent harpsichord throughout. As the song goes on, it goes through various phases and moods, ranging from a cheery section which eventually slows down into a sudden dramatic riff before starting right back up again. All the while, the song remains elegant, just like our very own Rarity. Coupled with a PMV, it makes for a perfect tribute to Equestria’s greatest fashionista!

Toby Macarony – Pinkie’s Bakin’ Rhapsody | Breakbeat/Jazz

There is brony music. Then there’s brony music in terms of one Toby Macarony. My first taste of his flavor of creative insanity. I got to hand to him. Why was brain saying to me, “What the hay did I just listen too? DrakeEmberHeart’s brain must reboot!” I understand this, this being a Pinkie Pie song. Its all kinds of musical ingredients bending together. It’s random, just like her. BUT is baked all together and comes out all soo sweet and full of smiles. He has some ragtime, breakcore, jazz, acoustic, chiptune, hardcore. I found this perfect for someone like Pinkie. As always this Qilin lets you be the judge about this song.

Vylet Pony – Shivers | Hip Hop / Jazz

The ever-creative Vylet Pony blesses us with yet another tune, this one off her recent album Love Letters: Colourless, that defies convention yet maintains her signature style (well, one of her many signature styles). This one begins as a low-key hip hop tune featuring some pleasant synth work before cranking it up to 11 and, eventually, morphing into a full-on jazz song with authentic basses, pianos, and vocals very befitting of the style. Also, Dash vocal chops! I’ll always people to check out any Vylet song, and this one is no different!

[P@D] BroniKoni — Autumn (Осень) | Latin Ballad

You don’t have to understand the words to feel the emotion in BroniKoni tracks. From the hit, new compilation album Ponies at Dawn: Skyward, comes this snazzy, fall anthem. The instrumental uses somber overtones with soft, jazzy melodies on top. The lyrics tell of the sad reality of the summer making its transition back towards winter with the cold winds of the Crystal Empire breaking through. BroniKoni give us a fantastic track for a chilled out, lazy day (or any time you want to listen to a great piece!)
