brambleshadow4 – Inspiration | Orchestral

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 – Connections | Orchestral Album

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.

Wandering Artist – The smell of books | Orchestral

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.


EveryDayDashie – A Special Tune: 2022 Epic Orchestral Collaboration (ft. brambleshadow4 & Bolt) | Epic Orchestral

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.


Ethan Toavs – Rarity | Orchestral

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 – Rainbow Dash | Orchestral

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!


Nugget – Sad to See You Go | Orchestral

Nugget has been a roll since he started releasing fandom music, and a good job he definitely does! But this piece right here? It hits; it REALLY hits. And I felt EVERY melody that was played throughout this tune. Ludwigsburg has been the home for Galacon for many years, as well where I started my big brony journey… And let me tell you; I am still very proud of that! I think Nugget compliments the memories, the legends, the funny stories, just ALL the amazing moments experienced in Forum am Schlosspark. I am sure WE BOTH are ready to support Galacon on its adventure forward! We may feel sad to see it go, but know my friends; when the day comes some will say the magic of friendship “isn’t real” and that it’s all “just from a show”, we’ll tell them WE were at Galacon and STILL will be! Don’t be afraid of the future. We’ll be alright.

I thank all the staff and attendees of Galacon, as I thank Nugget for this amazing piece. Well done my friend, I look forward to writing for you again! Ludwigsburg, Auf Wiedersehen. Ich liebe dich.

Jyc Row – Naegissa’s Music Box | Orchestral

I’m starting off the new year with yet another piece from the madlad Jyc Row with new piece of the Infitnite Eclipse series. This piece delivers a very eerie vibe. It’s oddly relaxing, but you just know something is coming… And YOU BET this piece helps deliver it. As its creepiness and intensity increases by the second. But only delivering a small taste of what’s to come throughout the series… It is in either case safe to say, Naegissa’s appearance is both something to dread and something to get hyped up about!

One thing that keeps me amazed regarding this project is how the builds-up remain so vast and consistent. I feel like a massive, wonderful story is going to come out of IE that’ll blow everybody’s mind. Well done, Jyc!


Jyc Row – Fluttershy, One With Nature | Epic Orchestral

Jyc Row’s second track from their ‘Elden Wing EP‘ is themed around a boss theme for Fluttershy. The EP itself is a concept album tying together ideas of both MLP and Elden Ring and those themes ring true here. Mystical and huge in scale with a wide orchestra opening the gates to powerful, foreboding vocal lines and the roar of distant yet powerful war drums, the title “One With Nature” could not describe the duality of nature’s force and beauty better!
