New album full of pony tributes and brony thoughts everypony!! With Steryotype on the beat, Ditherer raps about various lovely topics and character depth of ponies, including Sunburst, Maud Pie, Twilight, LyraBon, Jasmine Leaf, kirins, and more! Always so delightful to see, along a traditional new remix by Steryotype, and this time even some cute freestyle! Check it all out with the individual uploads on YouTube from Ditherer’s channel, and download the album from Ditherer’s Bandcamp!
Another piece of her Battle of the Bands concept, Dizzy Inmotion brings us this clever take off of Under Our Spell from Rainbow Rocks. Spellshatter is a self-hyping track with quick punches and great flow, talking up the dazzling personalities. The synth chords and word play pay great homage to the Equestria Girls hit while bringing a lot of creativity and Diz’s own personality to the forefront.
Dizzy is a rising star and it is easy to see why with such incredible flow and lyrics! The Sunset Shimmer Show is written from the perspective of the lead Equestria Girl herself tearing down a Battle of the Bands, Diz very cleverly plays up Sunset while knocking on the competition. The instrumental is simple, yet complimentary of the rapping, and the rapping is captivating!
The continuation to Dizzy’s story revolving around EQG Rainbow Rocks is here, and it unveils more of the many wonders that the concept album will have! Featuring ForeverFreest as Trixie and art by Niko, The Duel enacts another “battle of the words” between Sunset and Trixie, right before Sunset’s performance… Which is actually released now, check out The Sunset Shimmer Show! Also guess who’s the certain siren that Sunset met as well on her way to the stage… Adagio (Skit)!
Our patience has been rewarded, as Steroytype’s debut EP, Lofi Pon EP is finally here! 14 tracks of lo-fi hip hop goodness, with sprinkles of MLP samples and various vintage sounds, such as vinyl noise and old time music. The majority of tracks are less than two minutes long, so nothing here feels like it goes on too long or overstays its welcome. Stand out tracks are JustKeepVibin with its clear hip hop influence coupled with a modified horn sample, and TheyDon’tReallyLikeMe (OhWell) , containing a lovely melody and manipulated guitar samples while keeping the general lo-fi aesthetic. Groovy yet serene, this is a beautiful EP that you can simply sit back and relax to after a long day.
The message in this song is so vital in our fandom and our world right now. This emotional song about Discord could have not been released at a better time. This track is one of best on MC-Arch’s masterpiece of an album. This track is a combo of a Hip-Hop and only a small part of the well done audio drama this album offers. Featuring the musical talents of my fellow H.M.H colleague Nevermourn. Who does such a great job of making a melody, that just conveys the energy and power of the rhymes MC-Arch’s releases in this track. More than ever the lyrics cut deep with emotion and wisdom. The lyrics are for the one and only master of chaos Discord. Voiced by a fellow known for his talent for voicing him DaWillstantor! The magic of this track is the whole conversation between Discord and Realfeeler. Really well done and produced. I really want people to listen to this track. The Characters we relate to in the show is why we cherish the lessons learned we learn MLP. The message of speaking up for the greater good for all is so dire to learn. I really love the fact that Arch took his love for Discord and made such a powerful track about him and the message. Our fandom and our world need this so much right now. These characters would speak up for us, and we need to do the same for others! Let yourself feel the power of this track. You will not be sorry for it. There is no one better at taking their love of MLP, and using it for the greater good then MC-Arch. So proud I call the 3 gentlemen on this track, friends of mine. Check this song out and the Album! This Qilin insists.
DoodledMoosic’s back with a solo song, although there’s an interesting twist… Throughout this nearly 5 minute song, he spends every 8 bars doing very accurate impressions of other rappers in the MLP music scene, such as J. Free, MC Arch, NickyD, ShobieShy and… iBringDaLULZ? Nah, we can’t have nice things all the time. Either way, we’ve got a rap piece that’s both funny and great to listen to, especially if the names mentioned all ring a bell in your head.
Ditherer’s back with another EP, full of songs released earlier this year and a few new cuts too. These 14 tracks are all hip hop stories related to the fandom or the show, such as the opener, S7E03 Unnamed Earth Mare #1, about that one mare working behind the counter at a toy shop in that episode, and track 12, Where We Find Ourselves, a reflective song being rapped from the perspective of a brony in 2013 just after Magical Mystery Cure had aired. Of course, he’s not alone here, as many songs feature familiar guests such as Steryotype and Hay Tea as producers, plus the vocal talents of ZD, MC Arch and ShobieShy. If you love hip hop with stories and non-stop flow, this’ll be the EP for you!
The real Glim Shady returns with some bars about Starlight Glimmer! Accompanied with a chilled out beat from Tw3Lv3, he goes on to tell a story about Starlight’s growth and development throughout the show in two parts: her despair and guilt behind what she had done in the past, only to realise it was all a dream and that Equestria has accepted her into their arms. All this, bridged with a sample between Luna and Glimglam, makes for a relaxed yet emotional listening session. Hats off to this duo!
The newest rapper making noise in brony rap is definitely Pony Abstract and, in preparation for releasing his debut album, has dropped a single coming off of multiple performances at BronyCon 2019. His energy level seen at Straight from the Heart’s Renegade Stage set at BronyCon is certainly on display here and, though his lyrics are relatively simple, they are clever and his flow is exceptionally clean. His charisma is palpable and the rap here is brief but very catchy. All I can say is Abstract is up next!
