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!

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!
I do love me a good trance song. Celestia’s Zoo For Horses is a collab between Nevermourn and Whirly Tail, and to say they’ve created something great would be an understatement. This track combines the best of what trance has to offer: punchy kicks, atmospheric synth riffs, a strong lead melody and even emotional piano chords. To cap it all, there’s even a short breakdown with orchestral sounds. Right after that is a variation of the heavy synth lead that starts off slow but gradually speeds up and builds back up to a heavy climax. What a banger!
Today we have another awesome track straight from A State of Sugar’s newest album “Biscuit“. eksoka brings us this masterpiece that, clocking in at around six and a half minutes, is one of the longer songs on the album, but longer songs are exactly what eksoka does so well. Alternate Wing is no exception to this; it’s a track that you can put on in the background while working or chilling, and it will fit perfectly into your day with its simple bass and changes that keep up a nice progression throughout the song and the fun trance melody that keeps the song fresh throughout whether it’s your first listen-through or your latest of many!
Thanks to theCANderson for proofreading this.
We are feeling the new ideas and adventure with the musicians of ASOS: Biscuit! Today I cover a new alias of Brillant Venture! You may have noticed in the past few months he has been hinting at something big coming! BV told me THIS was the bomb he has wanting to drop! Fueled by his talented roots in making trance, NeighGative_ uses Vinyl Scratch as the catalyst to launch into this new adventure. On track 35, we are treated to not only a fun video to go with the track, but the song is self is a thrilling and fun mix of vocal chops, quirky melodies that rumble with delight and drops that go with the excitement that triggers with the video shots of Vinyl Scratch! My word, the bassline that trembles with this rumbling bass, along with those classic techno elements are just fun! I for one can express my love for Trance. The story behind this is very passionate from BV, big time!
Oh, furthermore, BV is just getting started with this new alias of his! (more info of that in the video’s description, if this is what we’re getting from NeighGative then this is going to interesting) As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
Today we’ve got ourselves a lovely collab from GrazySmash and Proto_ssin straight from the newest Equinity Album “Immersion“!
This song starts out with amazing choirs that give this deeply immersed and epic feeling that later transitions into a lovely melody after which the song fully starts with the main beat. After a while the main synth joins in, and the song experiences a slight change as the intensity ramps up. The drop is prefaced by a little text in the video, and then it’s just a fun trance explosion of upbeat synths that still seem sad. After the drop the song calms down a lot just to pick up again later, and it maintains this energy until the end.
