Sometimes an album comes along that resonates with my musical soul and forces me to really soak it in. This is one such album, and it takes me back to my early days of finding personally meaningful music on the internet. A big genre for me at that time was trance. There’s something uniquely emotional and energizing about the genre, and it’s so wonderful to be reconnected with it as I have been here. Regardless of whether you think of yourself as a trance fan or whether you continue reading this article or not, YOU ABSOLUTELY OWE IT TO YOURSELF TO LISTEN TO THIS ALBUM. The songs are ridiculously amazing and are chock full of pony goodness. Seriously, go get it now, and if you want to hang out with me in the rundown below, then come on back, but at the very least GET THIS MUSIC and then give the amazing creator behind it a big ol’ hoof bump, because they deserve it. Thank you from the bottom of my musical heart. ❤
The season 5 finale of “Friendship is Magic” follows Twilight and Spike on an epic journey through time and space to oppose Starlight and save the world. Ardhy Mahardhy has set out to capture this adventure in song form. An up-tempo melody played on a fun synth is complimented by a driving beat propelled by muted drums. Urgent sounds of time fleeing like a runaway train permeate the midsection, and I felt a sense of flying through time and space in a shower of a glittering lights. The overall effect is a feeling of time rushing towards an epic outcome as worlds collide and destinies are determined. This piece really lives up to its name as it carries the listener on an interstellar journey “through space and time!”

Today I bring to you another exclusive track from the first full length Pony Family album, “Busy Having Fun“. While the first exclusive track went in more of an acapella direction, this one is the very definition of an upbeat EDM masterpiece! For this track NeighGative_ (also known as Brilliant Venture) and loophoof combined their talents for an awesome Trance banger that would make even Armin van Buuren blush. At five minutes long this track is on the longer end, but it doesn’t get boring for a second with its creative melody and lovely vocal chops. Proofread by theCANderson; big thanks to him!
MAGIC!, inspired by and representing every princess in this princess-themed album, is the opener to PRINCESSES by IAmGlimm. Glitch-hop inspired drums and basses accompanied by slap bass guitars ready your ears for this joyous album! The track that follows that swing-y piece is CADENZA, glittered with saw stabs, trap-inspired drums and a lush, reverberant piano that gives this track its sense of wonderous melody. With melodies, basses, and drums that are reminiscent of 90’s era trance, ILLUMINATE MY NIGHT represents Princess Luna in this album, and also acts as my personal favorite track. Last but not least, the sounds from the finishing track ENLIGHTEN emit pure euphoria. With vocal chops, sine sub-basses, and a lively second drop, ENLIGHTEN represents Princess Celestia. Although it’s a relatively small release, PRINCESSES is energetic, bouncy, and fleshed-out enough to gratify a listen or two!
Cyberpunk vibes times! Going deep and dark again, Cynifree totalled aced that futuristic atmosphere with Washout, a gem from about 3 years ago that is finally seeing the darlight of the neon streets. Listening to this feels like exploring a brand new world, with such appreciated OST vibes!
Such a lovely trip in Equestria told through awesome rap, Rubber’s collab with RIEL and Kozzy is making way for adventures and lovely moments between friends in the journey to New Places! Maybe we can interpret this as a journey we walk as bronies, too!

When this song hit the fandom back in late 2020, nobody had any idea just how dire we needed this. Yes, you have your fandom anthems about how great and fun the fandom is. But this track that Tw3Lv3, Drummershy, Koa, and MC-Arch did. It spoke a message we needed to hear. The “friendship” part of all of this. The core of it for being a true brony. With how bad 2020 was. The lyrics and energy that rained down from this fandom were a breath of fresh air. This song inspired others again. A song about having that one spark or moment of friendship, support, love, or kindness is all you may need to start turning things around. The message was inspiring and one of the biggest bangers of 2020. How inspiring? Enough of some of the fandom’s best talents today to recreate the power of this track in a list of different genres and styles of expression on how this song inspired them. Suppose you listen to each of these tracks. They will speak to you about how each of them inspired them as it brings out the different strengths of the track. Let’s check them out!
Now this one’s just unique. 6 years in the making, Freako Way goes hard and doesn’t let up. There’s lots of crazy synths and vocal chops along with hard drops and heavenly atmosphere. Those trance synths in the breakdown along with the pitched vocals just hit me right in the heart. It really is on another level!
