Today Tw3Lv3 delivers yet another calm and relaxing banger. It starts out super chill and relaxing, easing you into the track as it slowly but surely builds as you listen, climaxing with a fire DnB drop towards the end before it eases to a close. Definitely something to put on repeat as you study or just for relaxing!

MC-Arch – Green | Lo-Fi / Hip-hop
Be ready to put your thinking cap on with this one from MC-Arch. He states that times have changed in the past four years within this community. His rhymes speak a great deal of reality for us, in addition to the perspective of his life, setting the tone with this track. A reflective beat pulls you into his message that life has been cruel and unkind to many these last few years, undeniable in these bars – the emotion of the delivery brings out all the feels. But this is Arch we are talking about; as the beat shifts, he turns that struggle into how much he has endured, overcome and inspires others to regain power and control destiny. Soft tones of the MLP theme pays homage to the people around him who supported him during challenging times. This is something special, even by MC-Arch’s standards. As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.

Childlike Wonder – Ponk | Lo-fi / Hip-Hop
An underrated treasure from last month, Childlike Wonder mixes a lo-fi, and at times jazzy, backing instrumental with a creative rap which combines a stylistic flow with lyrics from an egotistical pink pony. Throw in a some Pinkie Pie vocal chops and a great video loop for the song, and you’ve got a can’t miss hit!
Drixale – No Second Chances | Lo-Fi
When Drixale describes this release as a “sentimental type beat,” he’s not kidding. Equal parts brooding and bittersweet, “No Second Chances” provides a warm palette of sounds perfect for zoning out to, punctuated by tasteful percussive glitches and quips from Starlight and Trixie.
BeatSpark – Eventide | Lo-Fi Hip Hop
Melancholic piano? Check. Filtered drums? Check. MLP samples? Check! Jokes aside, we have a short but bittersweet song here from BeatSpark that takes inspiration from a poignant moment in the MLP movie. Take a listen for some downtempo music that gives that rainy day kind of feel…and may be suitable to relax/study to…
GhostXb – Lunar Snowfall | Lo-fi
There is nothing more beautiful and comfy than Heart Warming (a.k.a. Christmas days!), it is the perfect moment for celebrating and sharing those priceless moments we have with our family, and when chilling with our friends as well! and GhostXb knows this, and the track sounds just like that. GhostXb tells us that he took for inspiration a Wonderful fan art showing Princess Luna gazing at a cold night full of stars and the gentle snow falling from the sky. There are not enough words that describe how great the image looks, so that is why our dear friend decided to make a soundtrack for it and to show us those feelings one has when we are at these moments of the year. The track begins with a small tambourine rhythm and a crystalline piano melody that instantly sets you in the mood for this cozy song. We can hear some warm guitars strumming around, accompanied by those sweet keys in conjunct of neat drums that are just phenomenal. The track continues incorporating new melodies and chords (yes, this tune even has that “Christmas-ish chord” that makes everything sound nostalgic!). We can also listen to some strings, bells, and more tambourines. The atmosphere is just great. So, what are you waiting for! Go and have a pleasant time listening to this excellent song!
CAPT – Merry! | Lo-fi / Drum & Bass
CAPT never ceases to amaze with their work! I personally am a sucker for theory style of production, and this song is just so wonderfully done! It starts out with a really fun melody, which slowly fades in as more elements are added along with a riser, resulting in some of the most fun DnB ever! Everything about this is so amazingly cute and wonderful. Around the middle we get a bit of a switch up as we keep the melody but move into some new elements and instruments. We end this wonderful track with a very fitting crash.
