Brace yourselves for this everypony!! Mane In Green truly outdid himself with this one long progressive track infused with a story and delivering a variety of genres to create an epic musical Journey. It has many different instrumental parts reflecting perfectly each part of the story, with fitting instruments and rythm, and telling the story that’s written in the description so well. Over its breathtaking progression, the track will blow you away with epic melodies, guitar riffs, and fusions of genres all around, with Orchestral, Metal, Folk, and even Electronic all finding a share. Overall, The Journey is a masterpiece of story-driven, OST-like music, as well as a token of Mane In Green’s wonderful talent and vision, that will, I’m sure, continue to delight us in the future. I’m getting teary-eyed while relistening to the track and writing this, and I can’t thank Mane In Green enough for his magnificent work and how accurately it blissfully feels like Soundtrack. Long live OST, music, and Passion!
Now here’s something that I love to see and that is so very lovely. With expert hands, LuRhythmic did a Piano improv using chords from the famous Awoken by Glaze aka WoodenToaster and H8_Seed, resulting in a blissful Jazz-y track that would fit so well as a BGM in some chill night bar. Also check out the Piano improv of Nightmare Night, the Bebop Jazz cover of Bats, and the Big Band Jazz cover of Rainbow Factory! They are all awesome and rare gems!
ThisSideOfOblivion presents us a remix of a classic from 2013, Open Your Eyes from Aviators. With a solid rearrangement bringing drums, strings, and even delightful sax, it doesn’t fail to pay tribute to the original in a chill yet intricate way!
Frozen Night presents us a forest map BGM from a never-released pony fan game and from 2013, and it has those delightful “wooden” plucks and such choices of instruments that are so reminding of many forest map BGMs I’ve heard in my J-RPGs. There is also another field BGM from the musician that comes along it, and it’s for the Crystal Empire, check it out!
Arkineer, formerly known as Senjan, is back with a new OST piece he made for the fan game Adventure of the Lunarbolts, and this time it’s a remix of one of the BGM tracks from the show, Applejack’s Speech! Giving a wonderful new life to the amazing track by beloved composer William Anderson, the remix could be considered a spiritual successor to InfinityDash’s BGM remixes from 6 years ago, and doesn’t fail to pay tribute to the lovely melodies of the original, with an awesome new accompaniment and progression. Long live OST!
An epic orchestral track depicting a battle between Twilight and Tirek. Jyc Row bring us this amazing piece which perfectly embodies the moment. Filled with strings, percussion, epic drums, brass, and obligatory choir, the track truly packs a punch. On top of all of this, a beautiful vocal brings it all together in a true masterpiece.
Here’s a song “inspired by a certain celestial being”, and as it has been submitted to us, it’s got to be Celestia! Fitting for a sunset or an afterglow, the chill track soothes the mind with both acoustic and electric guitars, making for a very nice treat to enjoy while bathed in sunlight.
It’s time for the second episode of Blue Note’s Symphonies, announcing a brand new journey for the mare! From Canterlot to Cloudsdale to Griffonstone, the brave pony discovers many beautiful landscapes as we listeners discover many gorgeous soundscapes and compositions from Blue Note’s heart, bringing fitting musical moods and reflecting the emotion felt from those places in a wonderful way. The symphony ends in the warm comfort of the Night, as we wonder what other events and sounds the future holds…
We can always count on GhostXb to bring to life the most creative visions and the most blissful musical moods, and this new release is certainly another wonderful token of that talent, resulting in a very chill Hip-Hop instrumental feeling as gentle as a Night Breeze. The decrescendos near the end could remind you of the Prelude from Final Fantasy, too!

And here we are with another GhostXb track! This time, he delights us with some super chill and very soothing mix of a lovely, lovely piano improv on top of a lo-fi hip hop beat swiftly matched by dancing strings all around. A really interesting and unusual way to mix genres if you ask me, and I’ll never grow tired to see these kind of experimentations come up. It’s a breath of fresh (nightly) air.

Verse spitting at its finest, these blokes don’t hold back when it comes to making sure that quality rap is put out there. With fatal lyrical darkness, Confession Session ensures you won’t be left disappointed if you enjoy grim sharp edge in your music. This is a big one.
