Many of you remember your first feelings and emotions when you discovered MLP and the brony community, and Evgeniy Doctor made a song about just that! Fittingly covering the one and only theme song from the show, this Trance gem is full of heartfelt feelings and delightfully calls back to those early days of discovery, that changed many of our lives. Even if time passes and things are bound to change… never forget those feelings, everypony! Don’t forget how you felt, and what you still feel… because in that passion and love, Truth can be found!
Dj Gestap is back in the pony game again, and presents us the revival of an old project as a much welcomed surprise! From the musician who made that memorable remix of Raise This Barn that is still among my favorite pony tracks ever, get a gorgeous and mystical take on You’ll Play Your Part in pure Dj Gestap Trance style. Let us partake in both blissful nostalgia and ever-present pony passion along the enthralling remix!
I always love seeing remixes of this song to see what people do with it as there is just so much untapped potential to the song itself and Evgeniy has done a great job fleshing out the atmosphere and adding quite a lot to the tune itself, creating a dark yet soothing trance take with some notable nods to Tiesto’s style, it makes for quite a fun listen!
Ponytronic is still going strong, bringing us this excellent trance hit! Bygone is composed of several thematic sections, with each one managing to act as its own uplifting vibe. The track itself is adventurous and uses a solid drum beat to keep everything exciting. With some added psy elements, Ponytronic manages quite a feat by putting so much work into a very worthwhile track!
eksoka’s trance music is always awesome to hear, and this one’s a bit more aggressive than usual, giving off a dark vibe throughout which reflects well in the inspiration from the artwork above. There’s plenty of evolution of the vibes throughout the track to keep it interesting, and lots of nice little details throughout.
The dark and mysterious vibes of psytrance suit Tirek’s initial old and decrepit look perfectly, and Sonic Rainboom’s skill with the genre is well on show here. Setting the scene with some fantastic use of Tirek’s vocals, it quickly settles into a deep and constantly evolving rhythm.
Ertrii’s creativity is really on display with this new remix of an old collaboration between three well-established producers. This re-imagination of Cold stands out from the original given the big room feel of Ertrii’s progressive trance style and the modulation on FritzyBeat’s vocals, which sound like an entirely different professional singer. Simple and beautiful, be sure to check out this inventive take on an established hit!
War change us, war break us, war tear us up…
Coming from Rebirth, Midnight Musician delivers an uplifting and yet emotional track about war, with vocal help from his sister, Love Poisoned. The atmospheric and ethereal synth work with the vocal vox/chops to fit the heavy atmosphere of the track, along with the simple drum patterns. The lyrics are also really emotional and philosophical with a simple and emotionless performance, a thing that I love in this type of track. Keep doing this type of tracks Mid! I also want to hear more stuff with your sister! Bom trabalho!
Electro, hard trance, whatever you want to call it, this collab between Flyghtning and Flutter Rex is pretty cool. It has this great combination of a dark soundscape, which is only enhanced by the triplets. That deep bass drives most of the song, but it occasionally breaks down into an arp that switches the whole thing into a major key all of a sudden. I love that sort of play between major and minor roots in the same key, nice work by both of these guys!
174UDSI’s taken his classic trance/house style and collabed with Wubcake to make their own version of Open Up Your Eyes. Saw chord stabs and vocal stutters are the standout parts of this track for me.
