A month off the cuff of releasing the Without Friends EP, Rubber and Ditherer have some bars for you. Loser feels all about depression, something I’m sure at least one of us have felt at some point in our lives. Lots of great wordplay about the fandom and show set to a chill beat!
Lots of swearing in this one. If you’re a cool cat that knows how to handle all that, click READ MORE.Continue reading
Oh, it’s Sound Bandit back with another DustCar entry, this time to the theme of Luster Dawn with brony hip hop vet Nexgen and even AnimatronicPony getting into the fun. The lyrics are random as Pinkie Pie herself, like she’s trying to decide where she’s going to pop out and freak a pony out. There is some trash talking about some opinions about the show all with a strange video with heat vision of them at a mall video arcade. The beat and rhymes are fun and distorted, and Sound Bandit once again has made yet another catchy rap tune that this fandom will more than likely get behind. As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
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.
A remix of this track already! Well to be fair this single has been out for a bit. But when it comes to Equinity 03: Breach, it is always worth telling people about this amazing album. I wrote an article about the original track for ASOS: Brownie, and you can check that out here. Tw3Lv3, who has frankly been one of the musicians in this fandom that has been on fire most of this year, has yet again remixed a track and given it its own flavor. Blackened Blue’s beats and MC-Arch’s lyrics are now reinforced with a very slick hip hop beat that gives this track a satisfying thump. But wait and watch this video where Tw3Lv3 pops up–this dude can play guitar and play the drums! Talk about throwing the rock back into this track! What a treat. As always this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
The following article of Vibeponiez: HomeWork is a Horse Music Herald “All-Out-Attack!” Collab that is co-written by DrakeEmberHeart and Blackened Blue.
VibePoniez has returned with their second full-length album and third release overall, Homework! The album features 17 tracks from some of the fandom’s most talented and chilled-out electronic and lo-fi artists.
(Continued after the break)
After a bit of a quiet spell, Ditherer has returned on a hot streak, this time with the very fitting talents of mycutiemarkisagun who sets the stage with a vintage hip-hop instrumental. Ditherer brings his trademark flow rapping about everything and anything that’s been going on. Never one to shy away from saying what is on his mind, it is fantastic to see that Ditherer is still genius, introspective personality we fell in love with in recent years!
Rubber continues their run of strong hip-hop offerings with this fourth-wall-breaking collaboration with longtime fandom videographer and rapper ZD that was mixed and mastered by Nevermourn. Together they take a delightfully dark look at the unsettling and dangerous streets of Equestria in the early hours of the morning. Rubber’s and ZD’s creative lyrics flow nicely over the music box melody and beats. There’s even a great section where ZD delivers a spoken passage that has an awesome horror film vibe, which is a nice touch. The whole delivery works amazingly well with Rubber’s artwork, which manages at once to be comical and unsettling. A great offering for fans of hip-hop and anyone who likes their Equestrian music a little on the dark side!
Disclaimer: This is about the remix from the original song, not the original song, and while at times it may seem like I’m talking down on one song, I intend to compare and contrast the two.
So my take on this remixed version of fluttERR from the original, well going back and listening to both for the first time, and by a side by side character I prefer the remix. Both are talented able and potential musicians, but something stood out to me more than the tune, cords, bass or vocals was the rhythm and theme of the music. The remix sticks with the same theme all the way through with a little surprises here and there. while the original seems to jump from theme to theme, its dubstep one second, hiphop, then electro the next and its rather distracting, but still a good song and im sure it was amazing in its prime. The remix is a fun remix you almost want to dance to, as stated in the comments you could get a wrong idea with some of the lyrics it depends on the person, it sticks with a select set of vocals to accommodate the beat and rhythm of the song. With how the song is set up you can tell its a remix, but in my opinion a rather good one, it has a great drop. the little addition of a new piece every few seconds such as a squeek, grunt (or moan whichever you prefer) the bass, is a rather fun addition, while this song is only 2 min 11 seconds its a great listen to and I recommend it! only thing i wish is that it was longer, great job PSFMer, with both the cover piece and the song, i cant wait to see more of your work in the future!
When I found out CAPT over at Equestria Terror Corps made it on this album, I was pretty happy for him. Making it onto his first compilation album VibePoniez: Homework. The track centers around the Pony Life episode: ” I, Cookie”, where Pinkie is alone and getting pretty creative about keeping herself entertained.
The music itself is this dreamy and kinda eerie sounding lo-fi beat, and it kinda fits because of what Pinkie is dealing with in that episode: animated cookies of her friends! The Lo-Fi flow and beat is very unique in the sense that with it, there is this flavor of insanity as if you listen close to all the vocal chops used. It’s pretty nice for the theme of this track. No wonder this track made it on the album. Give CAPT some love for trying something new! As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
