Sparklight Productions – Aurora | Lo-fi

This track represents the culmination of Sparklight Production’s debut EP, “Ethereal“, and what a great way to close out this effort! The song was created with the hope that it could be a comforting reminder to not get caught up in our anxieties and make the most of every day. I can definitely appreciate that sentiment, and the soothing piano melody floating over a chill beat is some good medicine for the frazzled mind. A choir melody adds some nice dimension, and there’s a delightful progression through the piece with a nicely filled out arrangement at the end before the piano carries the song back into the ether. Hopefully it takes some of your worries with it and leave you feeling a little more ready take on the world!


Steryotype – Study Tapes Vol​.​1 | Album | Lo-fi

Here’s something different and vibe-y! Study Tapes Vol.1 is Steryotype’s brand new beat tape – full of creative productions and samples that show off the innovative possibilities of the lo-fi genre. Most of the tracks last just long enough to set the tone and get some solid samples, while a few of the tracks on this tape are fleshed out and meant to stand on their own.

One of the standout demos is called Bleu and combines a more lively jazz beat with a trumpet carrying the melody. Combined with the lo-fi soundscape and a couple of charismatic chops, this sample really grabs your attention and is super fun to nod along to.

The longest track on the 19 track tape is UnVerguenza which utilizes the marimba for the melody and a subtle piano to fill out the background. This chill song is the quintessential lo-fi beat – chill, not too complicated, stands on its own, and is perfect to get lost in.

Study Tapes Vol.1 shows off a lot of what lo-fi fandom music can be, and hopefully we will get to see some of these tracks put to great use. Steryotype represents the genre well and has a great commitment to his craft. Lookout for more from this talented creator and hopefully we will get a Volume 2 in the future!


Koron Korak – Sytira Wave’s Workout | Lo-fi / Hip-Hop

A musical continuation of Koron’s misc video Brony Flag, this musical theme is an extended version of the BGM that you could hear in the clip! The cool vibes are a delight and this is almost making you itch to do your own workout while listening to this… and thinking of ponies of course! As always we gotta thank Koron for being one of the active voices of pony in the pony music scene! Keep it up!!
You can find the drawing that Koron made for this upload on his DeviantArt here!


PSFMer – House of Spike | Lo-fi House

Lo-fi house is a genre I honestly didn’t know existed until just now. House of Spike is just that, and the perfect song if your idea of a fun time is listening to Spike say the word “house” 50 (!!) times. Seriously though, this is an interesting listen. It perfectly blends house with elements of lo-fi production and even sounds you’d expect to hear in a garage song. Give it a spin!


[VibePoniez] BlueBrony – Darling | Lo-Fi

Oh man oh, if you haven’t listened to VibePoniez: Overcast…dudes and ladies (especially those of you who are Rarity fans), you are missing out on a track that is frankly the definition of really good Lo-fi hip hop. It’s so beautiful, darling! This track has this sick and stylish boom and bap to it, but this is Rarity we are talking about, and the song channels the energy of her favorite stylish sleuth “Shadow Spade!” Oh baby, does this song just throw down the style big time! We have Rarity’s vocal chops mixed into this melody that’s composed of fabulous violin melodies and these sparkling gems and chimes that bring more flair to the track. The lo-fi itself even fits into rarity’s detective role. Classic noir is stylish but dark and dirty, and you can’t be scared to get your perfectly manicured hooves dirty in the face of ponies being shifty and dishonest! Everything about this track is such an outstanding representation of Rarity’s character and it’s one of highlights of the album. I have to tell you, you feel like you are there with the gorgeous mare sipping on some red wine and enjoying listening to her tell you about her many cases! Make no mistake, Rarity is a classy and powerful lady that we bronies know can handle herself. This track sure delivers that message in a way only Rarity can. BlueBrony, thank you for making such a great tribute to Rarity! As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself, but this track is the essence of elegance. Believe that, darling.


Bridull – Cold Brew Coffee | Album | Lo-fi / Chillout

This might seem like an odd suggestion for such a subdued album, but you might want to turn the volume up a little on this one, because it would be a shame to miss any parts of the delicate arrangements on these tracks! This lo-fi/chillout offering follows Applejack as she works her way through a substantial lineup of caffeinated beverages. Bridull (a.k.a. Noizzer) uses a wide array of samples that were created by a group that’s listed in the Bandcamp credits, which I love. It’s apparent from the album’s art and the concern of the barista in the Bandcamp description that Applejack is a little worse for wear, and the introspective nature of these songs certainly reflects that. Let’s take a look at what she’s drinking and hope that she works through whatever is wrong soon!

Voltex Pixel – Assignments | Lo-fi

Oh, this is different! Voltex Pixel, putting out some Lo-Fi. Let’s do this! Oh, this track is so adorkable and so smooth, and you just can’t help but die from the artwork of Twilight Sparkle! The beat and melody sounds like a mix of smooth R&B with how the beat flows along with the vibing cool vocal chops in the background. Mixed in is the melody which is so cute and wondrous! You can say the Big Princess Twilight is looking back at her time as a student and smiling at the good times! Lo-Fi and Bookhorse! So relaxing! As always this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
