One of my favorites from Ponies at Dawn Eternal, this absolute beauty from Eksoka has got his signature pony vocals chops and that rich and bright composition that holds a lot of magic within. And with such a message, about the magic of friendship being everlasting, this masterpiece truly is a shining star on the album!
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!
This track has constant speed all the way through. It’s high energy electronic/dubstep music is honestly perfect, and the subtle sound effects as well as the Egyptian style music throughout the track are really nice additions that add to the whole feel/theme of the song.
John Kenza is easily one of the best at fun, catchy house melodies! His upbeat tempos combined with perfectly crafted synths and song progressions are consistently incredible! Nightlife brings the party right to you with the rave build ups, drops, and even some vocal chops from Spike! A hit track off the new Ponies at Dawn: Eternal album you don’t want to miss – so make sure to go grab the entire compilation right away!
MirroredReality is back with such a welcome theme song for Celaeno and her merry group of sky pirates! The kind of pirate-y melodies that you would expect are present, and the musician did awesome bringing all the Psytrance vibes too! Definitely a very cool themed experiment!
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.
Even though there’s technically nothing explicit or NSFW in this song, as it is only sampling the official Korean dub of MLP, the end result still has… questionable vocals, to say the least! So you’ve been warned, this is only suitable for certain ears! If you are fit to listen, check it out along the usual writeup after the break!
My first taste of what ASOS brings to the table is this collab by GrazySmash & Tw3Lv3! And Oh my, It’s themed after Daring Do. Trust me when I say it’s a banger that fits great. Picture Daring Do walking into the location of her next treasure. Sizing up her task. The opening melody builds up energy as she gets a feel for the place, Then BOOM! This song kicks in like a rapid-fire machine gun!. She shoots off into searching for her goal, dodging and weaving through all of the dangers within. The way the beats go all over the place. It gives you an idea of what she is in for. It lets you imagine her traversing through these perils with style. The use of exotic sounds is a nice touch as well. The mixing is just plain sick and adventurous. Someone honesty should do an SFM animation to this track of Daring Do making it look easy to this exciting track. So much fun! As always. This Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
Up next on Horse Music Herald, We have a techno creation by Nicolas Dominique. Happy Days Under the Sun is sure to get you up and grooving, all day everyday! Its memorable, moveable, get up and grooveable! Let its upbeat happy tone flow you to a productive day!
You Rock is another example of the talent this fandom has, bringing heavy and powerful sound design with amazing rhythm and creativity. A part of the newly released ASoS album, Waffle, it expands the variety of music in it and confirms even more that the album is definitely worth the listen. A slow start with very a serious and cyber punk style shows this song doesn’t mess around. Going into the drop it ups the tention, which transitions to a pure enjoyment and headshaking that wasn’t heard in a while. And in the Waffle style, it makes a transition to a completely different genre, and you guessed it, it’s psytrance. Energetic, and strong bass is present that again, switches back to the first drop. The song is one of the prime examples that shows the quality of both producers and the quality of the album. That’s GrazySmash and Ponycutz.
