SpinScissor has pulled out all the stops for their first release of 2023! A great drawn out ethereal and soothing opening transitioning and twisting itself with a driving beat and sharp synth arpeggios it nails that Deadmau5 inspiration from yesteryear as well as some inklings of older pony music. The entirety of this large nearly eight minute long track zips by in a flash which is no small feat and the “epilogue” style ending where Thorax is finally accepted adds that satisfying closure, keeping everything tight as a drum!
NeighGative_’s remix of RosePoni Roseluck’s “Princess of the Night” is a adventure full of twists and turns! In its epic, near seven-minute duration, the piece takes us on a journey through a multitude of different sections, each with its own unique sound and character, keeping the listener hooked! At times, it is dark, groovy, and focused with its synths, only to give way to a new section that’s elegant, introspective, and hopeful, backed by gorgeous strings. Then it turns to something energetic and intense, with its synth stabs and wubbing bass. Throughout, you’ll hear the same Luna chops that RosePoni used in the original—they complement the piece so well as the different aspects of Luna’s character match the sections of the track! The piece eventually comes full circle and returns to its original section before closing out with the scratching sounds of a record stop. Overall, it’s breathtaking, so make sure to give this a listen through!
What a beautiful and wholesome remix do we have here of Ice Angel & KiTSUNE’s Colorful. Funnily enough, it’s the perfect way to describe BOTH this extremely joyful tune and its remix. Forsake & Sylvver absolutely NAILED this, with their remix complimenting the cute, happy and lovely sound of the original by Ice and Kit. Ponies are truly a joy, and I am happy to both see & hear that being celebrated throughout this song. Adding colour to the beauty of life – wonderful! Well done all 4 of you! Make sure you check out both the original and this fantastic remix!
Ice Angel’s remix of Depth pt. II begins with the lush tones of piano and Koa’s voice reverberating to create an ethereal space. But don’t let that fool you—as the drums and orchestra come in, it all builds up to when the electrifying drop hits. Here, the heavier dub rhythms blend nicely with the ethereal pads, still floating effortlessly above. The track then interludes with the sound of rainfall and xylophone-like bells before a four-on-the-floor bass drum delivers us to the track’s intense climax.
EveryDayDashie’s high-energy remix of Flawless from Friendship is Magic will have you dancing on your hooves for sure! With its ridiculously catchy synth line between verses, and its vocal chop swell before dropping into the final chorus, there’s plenty to grab your attention. In addition to featuring the Mane 6 vocals on top of a fresh beat, Dashie also blends in Pipp Petal’s “Show me what you got!” from Tell Your Tale’s “It’s The Pony Hip Hop,” delivering this delightful cross-generation remix.
Not content with just one small remix, Midnight Wave has taken another spin on Tw3Lv3’s super collab from 2020. And clearly one genre wasn’t enough either! As it transitions from verse to drop, this remix picks up the pace from a perky house beat and falls into a supercharged drum & bass section. It’s a great use of tempo changes and worth a listen if you typically enjoy either genre!
SpinScissor returns with a remix of a G4 classic “Find A Way”. This immediately takes a dark turn from the start with metallic warping textures overlain on an ominous drone. The mix of Twilight’s vocals and the tone of the mix are intriguingly unique and there is always a new element introducing itself to keep things fresh and flowing!
In case you missed the release party earlier this month, Ponies at Dawn have released their twenty-sixth(!) album Wanderlust. Sporting 76 songs in a variety of genres, the album features the usual mix of P@D and fandom veterans and some newcomers to the scene. Regardless of your taste, there’s something to please everybody in this huge collection of brand new music!
Originally debuting at Ponyville Ciderfest this year, TCB’s bootleg of this heavy hitting Fallout Equestria piece from Ponies At Dawn: Rebirth finally gets a finished and full mix! Staying true to many of the trap elements of the original, this remix takes things to a new dimension of sound, bending and skewing perspective with otherworldly and intense drops. A balancing act of colour bass flare and spectacle with the grit and rawness of riddim. A new perspective on an already great song, this one is a must listen!
EveryDayDashie has dived straight into the G5 scene with yet another remix, this time of a Tell Your Tale song. Considering it’s the first time they’ve made these kind of dubstep-adjacent sounds, they’ve done a pretty good job weaving all the sounds together to make a cohesive heavy beat!
