[P@D] fractilx – Ultimate Uproar | Tech Trance

If there was an award for catchiest song on Ponies at Dawn: Eternal, this would easily appear in the top 3. The 41st track see’s fractilx’s first appearance on the P@D catalogue since 2018’s Rebirth, and what a comeback it is. This song wastes no time getting started, giving us only an uplifting pad and glitchy drum samples before jumping right in. What follows is an intensely catchy trance track based around Spike yelling “NOOOOOO” alongside plenty of other vocal samples pulled from various other sources. Quick, bouncy and filled to the brim with samples, you’ll have a hard time getting this one out of your head.

Vylet Pony – The Magic Show | Pop

We’ve got ourselves a treat here. Track 19 from the upcoming Queen of Misfits is a 10 minute long three-part pop track revolved around Trixie’s desire to be the center of attention, while also hiding her anxieties behind a metaphorical mask. On Your Knees is laid-back and features soft, glitzy synths alongside a simple yet powerful beat and Vylet’s beautiful voice. After fading out, the song transitions into an 80s inspired interlude with a piano and string combination, before jumping into The Moment, an uptempo segment reminiscent of early-mid 2000s trance. Seamlessly transitioning into the final segment, Thrill of the Fight, we hear more of Vylet’s typical style that comes full circle with its lyrical themes, borrowing the hook from On Your Knees and closing out with a synth solo and the familiar piano and string combo from earlier before fading out naturally. Queen of Misfits comes out on Hearth’s Warming Day, so be on the look out!

BassPon3 – Life Goes On | Hands Up

Just the beginning plucks in this song should be enough for this dance tune to pull you into its dreamy nature. Soon afterward the reverie of an intro, there are offbeat basses and gated saws playing the song’s catchy main melody. And don’t miss out on the trancey interlude, characterized by a modulating synth backed by even more basses! It’s easy to find yourself hitting replay with this spatial dance piece, so don’t miss out!

Nicolas Dominique – Alter Ego | Trance / Ambient

Nicolas Dominique’s newest track is a tale of two personalities, which can easily be represented by its blend of soft and trebly synth lines in tandem with a low, distorted bassline ripped straight from a dubstep song. Blending different electronic styles is nothing unheard of in the EDM scene, but when done right – like here, for instance – it makes for a refreshing listening experience!

[P@D] MrMehster & GrazySmash – Shanti | Psytrance

Resident psytrance connoisseur MrMehster has teamed up with the talented GrazySmash, who’s been making major plays in pony music in the last year, for a divine Somnambula-inspired cut on the new Ponies at Dawn album! What elevates this above many Somnambula-themed tunes is its adherence to Eastern sounds. From the wonderfully psychedelic drops (and visual accompaniment in 60 fps!) to the great use of vocal samples and gritty basses used in the latter portion of the song, this one is certainly a standout on Eternal!

Dynamite Grizzly – No Worries (Gameday Mix) | Psytrance

Dynamite Grizzly is a beast. This time, he’s released a remix of his track from three years ago, No Worries. While the original was a calm techno piece with soft string synths and 808 drums all around, this one’s more erratic. Some of the elements from the original song are still present, such as the slapped bass samples, but overall it takes a clear influence from trance/rave music from the 90s, so much so that if you’d told me this track was actually from the 90s, I’d believe you! This is definitely something that could be used to pump up athletes before a game.
