Time for an Equestria Girls remix! This track starts out with a thick electronic drum segment, setting a fun and energetic tone for the song. The track quickly ramps up after the drum intro, with more bopping music and the mixing in of the original vocals from Dash herself! The whole song in general is just packed full of energy, and kind of reminds me of early fandom music, which is definitely a good thing!
The original version of this song by TiFWhitney is a bouncy delight that fuses electro swing and glitch hop to great effect. This version retains those wonderful elements but delivers them at House pace creating a danceable and delightful uptempo remix! The song sounds as if it was always intended to run at express pace, and the Derpy vocal chops are a nice addition, too. Also, if you got a little bit of a Star Wars cantina vibe from the music then you might enjoy the choice of artwork for the video. The Derp is strong with this one.
Nothing spells nostalgia like a remix of the theme song of our favorite pastel horse show—or pastel human show, in this case. Tremil has taken an interesting approach to this remix, swapping out the poppy sound design of the original for some upbeat house sound design. A slower tempo enhanced by some plucky chords in the verses highlight the lyrics reminding us of the power of friendship, and the drop section carries an bright melody and a driving beat that just makes you want to get up and dance!
Pinkie’s Lie is the first track ever released by popular fandom artist, Wooden Toaster. Now, over 9 years later, Spikey Wikey has revitalized this classic piece with an epic and nostalgic remix! The track starts with a somewhat distorted version of the melody that sounds somewhat like it’s being played through an old radio, which certainly adds to the nostalgic feeling. It’s like looking at an old picture, reminiscing memories from the past. As the track progresses, it gains a clearer, more refined sound, as if you had just been transported into the picture itself and are now reliving the memory in person. Utilizing some glitchy, video game-esque sound design, as well as plenty of vocal chops from the pink pony herself, the track is able to retain its reminiscent vibe throughout. With catchy melodies and creative sound design that just make you want to get up and dance, this piece is sure to make for an epic trip down memory lane!
The original version of this song, from the episode “Bloom and Gloom“, is a short, sweet reassurance from Applejack to Apple Bloom that she will always be loved by her friends. Ricardofr-200 takes that 20 second song and morphs it into a listening experience akin to wrapping yourself up in a warm blanket pulled straight from the dryer. Fantastic vocal chops are layered in with synth elaborations on the vocal melody, and there’s a really nice progression through a couple of different styles of that melody. Simple but effective percussion and pitched vocal effects add a nice dynamic to the song. If you’re having a down day, let AJ sing your troubles away!
As a power move, Tw3lv3 has released a smooth and fast remix of TCB’s quite popular tune “Only One” not only to Equinty’s 4th album, but also their own Simp EP!

This one is a wonderful addition to the album and Tw3lv3 really knows how to string a vibe together!
