BeatSpark – Eventide | Lo-Fi Hip Hop

Melancholic piano? Check. Filtered drums? Check. MLP samples? Check! Jokes aside, we have a short but bittersweet song here from BeatSpark that takes inspiration from a poignant moment in the MLP movie. Take a listen for some downtempo music that gives that rainy day kind of feel…and may be suitable to relax/study to…

mikuma – Sad Hors Hours (feat. Mystic Genesis, MC​-​Arch, Acarcion, Mylo The Kidd & Namii) [Tw3Lv3 Remix] | Casual House

That title is a mouthful! Tw3Lv3 has taken one of the many memorable songs from Ponies At Dawn’s ‘Rebirth’ album and added a more upbeat and four-to-the-floor style to the original lo-fi hip hop track while still retaining that slick and swingy flow provided by all of the associated vocalists involved. A fresh coat of paint with a crunchy bass and a laid back yet energetic vibe. This one is a great one!

Nyancat380 – Falling Apart | Phonk

I always picture Nyancat380 working on these songs in a room full of classic horror movie props with a bunch of electricity zapping around, because they are an absolute mad genius. Opening with some vocal chops from “Sisterhooves Social”, the video tells a story through a series of pictures that the artist made themself set over live video footage (in the same vein as the fantastic “Clear My Head“). The melody is dark with a great hip-hop beat, the bass is exquisite, and the overall vibe is delightfully ominous and atmospheric. I love how perfectly the music matches the story as it progresses, and I can’t wait for the next installment!

Steryotype – Study Tapes Vol​.​1 | Album | Lo-fi

Here’s something different and vibe-y! Study Tapes Vol.1 is Steryotype’s brand new beat tape – full of creative productions and samples that show off the innovative possibilities of the lo-fi genre. Most of the tracks last just long enough to set the tone and get some solid samples, while a few of the tracks on this tape are fleshed out and meant to stand on their own.

One of the standout demos is called Bleu and combines a more lively jazz beat with a trumpet carrying the melody. Combined with the lo-fi soundscape and a couple of charismatic chops, this sample really grabs your attention and is super fun to nod along to.

The longest track on the 19 track tape is UnVerguenza which utilizes the marimba for the melody and a subtle piano to fill out the background. This chill song is the quintessential lo-fi beat – chill, not too complicated, stands on its own, and is perfect to get lost in.

Study Tapes Vol.1 shows off a lot of what lo-fi fandom music can be, and hopefully we will get to see some of these tracks put to great use. Steryotype represents the genre well and has a great commitment to his craft. Lookout for more from this talented creator and hopefully we will get a Volume 2 in the future!

[P@D] Tw3Lv3 & 4EverfreeBrony – Introversion | Chill Pop

By hearing the opening plings of the blues guitar, you know this is going to be unique; Why would you expect anything less from a collab such as this! A dream pairing for talents that have one particular thing about them, they share in common. “Versatility,” How else can track about Princess Skystar and the Seaponies desire to once again come out of hiding and fear sound sooo smooth! To see the sunset, the mountains, and beauties of Equestria again, without the fear of the Storm King. We first have Tw3Lv3, who is a little over two short years has become one of the most versatile and dynamic music producers in the whole fandom, Able to blend styles and genres like their peas and carrots and make it sound easy. It is no wonder she has become so renowned within the music community! Then there is 4everfreebrony. The music man can adapt his musical skills to anyone’s style and kill it with his voice or talent playing the guitar every time!

This song is such a splendid example of what these two can do. Tw3lv3 composes a stunning hybrid of blues and lo-fi with soft melodies and chimes that feed into the soul of the sea ponies’ message with a sprinkle of violin for taste! Bringing something new to the table is 4everfreebrony, who lends his voice to this beat as someone who knows that lo-fi is not his cup of tea. You would not guess that listening to him sing with this ultra-smooth blues style makes you smile at how much swagger you hear. Plus that blues guitar. It makes you close your eyes and feel so delightful and light. This track seems to be fate to show how to skill the two of them have in adapting their talents. It’s a dream match that has been worth the wait! Way to go, both of you, for this treat of a song!

You can catch this one-of-a-kind song on P@D: Oceansong very soon! As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
