[BFK] One Track Mind – Nostalgia (Reprise) | Darksynth / Synthwave

One track to talk about and a million words aren’t enough. As a part of a charity album Brony Forever organised by Bronies for Kindness , it definitely adds quality to the album. The amazing sound design and the progression of the track makes it a style that we all know and love. It shows through it’s dark and powerful synths that it is okay to feel sad that BronyCon ended, but it says even more. Even though BronyCon is no more, we should be happy that it brought us so much joy, excitement and that it brought the whole fandom even closer as a whole. The atmosphere of the track that goes from calm to dark and then building on it with a very emotional melody shows the process of losing something or someone. I said one track to talk about and a million words aren’t enough, well, maybe 3 are. One Track Mind.

Etherium Apex – Second Prances VIP feat. Nicole Carino (Lorris Remix) | Synthwave

Second Prances is already a great work of art, receiving some vocal love from a wonderful singer Nicole Carino. Her powerful voice makes the ability to really speak for herself and what she wants to achieve. Lorris, a French producer with an extreme amount of talent, decided to give it a go. The track obviously portrayed the same story, but with a different spin on it. Synthwave was always a happy place for me and Lorris continues to make that statement true. The cassette being played at the beginning speaks of a new beginning for someone who wishes for a second chance. Atmosphere of the track is unique and it manages to be very calming but still alive, now but yet … happy.The end of the song is very nostalgic, reminiscing of the past that made you who you are, and the things that will come. An emotionally impacful experience and a wonderful piece of music that is definitely replay worthy. Oh! And let’s not forget the man who made it possible, Etherium Apex, go give him some love, he definitely deserves it!

[BFK] Arabesque Sympony & Danilo Pantusa – Thank You And Goodbye | Synthpop / Classic Rock

From new compilation album Brony Forever, this tribute to BronyCon is carrying the musicians’ feelings, and it’s so wonderful how they came together for a musical tribute to BronyCon through that album as the last edition of the community’s biggest convention happened. Mellow vocals and bittersweet synths are completed by a requiem on the guitar with that solo, making for a very rich song!

Koron Korak – City Sky Lines | Soundtrack

Koron always has an interesting track to bring to the table and City Sky Lines is no exception! It breathes an authentic early 90s cyberpunk arcade game from its fast pace, gritty analog basslines and leads and the visuals are spot on as well! While fairly repetitive (as is the nature of such opening themes) there is enough changes and progression going on throughout to be engaging an interesting and I really have to appreciate what they went for with this piece!

[Equinity] TheTaZe – Twilight | Synthwave

Now this one nails the 80’s vibe with its atmosphere and design! TheTaze brought ‘Twilight’ to the table on Equinity 01:Stellar and exudes the classic mood of driving in a city by night and the way everything dynamically crescendos and wanes steadily is some incredibly smooth composition by my books! Its mysterious, rhythmic, and calculated and suits our purple book horse well. This one is for all the retro enthusiasts out there!

Vylet Pony & Sylver – Penumbra | Progressive Electronic

Inspired by Prog Rock and Starlight, Vylet wrote a 10-minutes progressive piece with the help of Sylver and they did absolute wonders! The very emotional synths and melodies are just divine, not to mention the whole track is accompanying a story appearing in the visuals of the video as well as on Fimfiction. The gorgeous-as-always vocals are pure bliss as well, and we can’t help but get entranced by such a masterpiece of concept and emotion!

Koron Korak – Confrontations | Darksynth

Koron Korak is always good for an off-meta style track and Confrontations is certainly unique! The track starts with off with a strong, ominous organ and transitions into a distorted, almost nightmarish track. The prevailing synth sets the dark tone while the drum beat keeps the intense emotion. Some high voices and powerful bass bring the track together in an awesome and powerful way!

Vylet Pony – Monolith to a Halcyon (feat. Namii & GalaxySquid) | Synth-Rock

This has got to be one of my favorite tracks from Vylet Pony’s latest album: Homeward. Vylet has long been known for their amazing vocal talent, and when accompanied by Namii and GalaxySquid, the resulting sound is nothing less then stellar. There are a few changes throughout the arrangement that keep the feeling of wonder alive.  The song tells of a mysterious room, but there is much more to the story…
