Here we go!~ with this lovely tune made by the oh so amazing EveryDayDashie! I knew that Dashie was amazing in EVERY direction he goes when talking music…but Latin Rock? That’s just amazing! I believe, it truly speaks volumes on how talented this person is! Dashie delivers us today; Pezuña al Corazón. Which is Spanish for “hoof to heart”. A TRUE code to live by, and expressed wonderfully throughout this song with an out-of-this-world passion for G5 with a Latin tint added unto it! Epic vocals, epic drums, wonderful melodies! It’s ALWAYS a pleasure to write for Dashie. Keep being you, and keep spreading your wonderful messages of love and endearment for the ponies we love!
I know summer hasn’t arrived yet, but I’m already feeling like vacationing in a tropical utopia! Dream vacations are no longer an imaginary fantasy as TM’s new gorgeous track “¡Viva Las Pega!” delivers a fresh, upbeat Hip-Hop vibe with its rich instrumentation. From the punchy drums to the lively trumpet fluttering in the air, you can feel the entire spectrum of vibrations around you as if you’re immersed in a real excursion to your dream destination. Give it a listen if you’re in for a chill and relaxing voyage, but don’t forget to hop in the vacation van and let TM show you the astonishing scenery all around!
I’ll be the first to admit that I know very little about Generation 3 of My Little Pony, but thankfully Ethan Tovas has us covered with another song that is dedicated to another G3 pony to give us an idea of its vibe. Just like his other G3 pony tracks, the song aims to capture the essence of said title character, Starsong, with its sweet, airy vocalized melodies and background rhythm like a pony is gently pulling you in a cart through this adventure. I won’t spoil the little twists throughout, but let me just say, once you get to them, you’ll be dancing like its 2008 all over again.
G4 may have ended, but its memories and reminiscences will forever be celebrated, just like brambleshadow4’s new gorgeous orchestral track – “Inspiration”. With various layers of instruments blending together, his lovely instrumentation has reminded us of how wonderful our beloved G4 was, but rises and falls in the music also reflect the remarkable journey the Mane 6 went through. The pony squad is packed with a plethora of personalities like these glamourous melodies in the arrangement, and you can certainly feel the magical power of friendship as they come together to create harmony. Friendship will forever be magic and this show-stopping masterpiece has demonstrated that friends are what make our life special. Spectacular work, brambleshadow4!
Nugget’s been slowly feeding us individual orchestral pieces over the last few months, leading up to this – the release of his debut album. Connections features 12 of Nugget’s original songs (plus 1 with further ‘layers’ to it), many of which we’ve previously featured already. There’s a very ambient feel for many of the songs on this album, but we also get to see some of Nugget’s metal influence on Resistance! A lot of these pieces also creatively explore music modes that create tension – perfect for some of the dark and mysterious settings.
MC-Arch and PrinceWhateverer’s first track of the new year is a collaboration powerhouse featuring not only these two legends, but also Drummershy, BlackenedBlue, SnugBugVa, and Namii! The track begins with mellow e-piano vibes and the incredible rapping talent of MC-Arch. Then a minute in, the electric guitars kick in, along with a couple of chiptune-esque synths and a drum feature, creating an incredible cross-genre texture unique to this song. My favorite bit though is the duet between MC-Arch and PrinceWhateverer singing, “You deserve love.” It’s simply gorgeous and a fantastic message to everypony listening!
This track will be featured on the third installment of “You got me, I go us”, so make sure to check that out when it drops later this year.
Wandering Artist is back again with another track made specifically for one of Pony Town’s newest updates: The Library Update. In a similar fashion to their previous Pony Town tracks, this song aims to bring the idea and atmosphere of a quiet library with its soft instrumentation selection and slower tempo. Right out of the gate, the simple melody of woodwind & acoustic guitar fills you with a sense of calm and security, which is only heightened as the track progresses. This song is perfect for anyone who wants to cozy up by the fire with a good book or write the final three pages of their university thesis.
This track, is truly a journey – and not just a journey, an MLP journey! EveryDayDashie has united with Bramble and Bolt to bring forward this track and in EVERY, SINGLE, DIRECTION IT GOES, there’s something burning BRIGHTLY throughout the music. Something beautiful… something warm… something, magical! Vocally the harmonics guide each other to bring forward a wondrous symphony, which is than also covered by phenomenal violins and bramble’s legendary clarinet work. It all compliments each other so well, I can’t bring myself to write for this tune without having the words for it. You did it guys, you are the VERY first individuals who I write an article for and than have no words to say for it… it’s THAT good! Well done! Thank you for this… special tune.
It is always wonderful to write for orchestral songs, and here we are with another great orchestral piece from none other than the absolute orchestra unit; Ethan Toavs! And this time he didn’t just provide us with a tribute track to a Rarity, it’s a G3 Rarity track. And I think that is epic! Rarity’s character has through the ages always been splendid and as wondrous as her colour pallet. You can be sure, that the same goes for G3! And through this wholesome and joyful orchestral piece you get a nice input of how majestic this pony truly is!
Ethan Toavs has brought us another upbeat, light-hearted orchestral track by the name of “Rainbow Dash”. Inspired by the G3 rainbow pony, his sparkling orchestration definitely gives me a vibe of wandering around in a magical adventure in Equestria. You’ll certainly feel a passion to explore the bigger world as brass instruments make their debut with a lively, triumphant sound. Be sure to give it a listen if you are in the mood for a fun and joyful excursion!
