8 months in the making, Sparklight Productions presents their debut EP! This collection of 7 songs flows together with a unifying soundscape blending chillout, trap and lo-fi elements. Each one of the songs also represents a different aspect of mental health, and Sparklight’s goal with this project has been not only to document and express their own progression and stages of their journey, but also to break the stigma that still surrounds mental illness for many people.
Originally debuting at Ponyville Ciderfest this year, TCB’s bootleg of this heavy hitting Fallout Equestria piece from Ponies At Dawn: Rebirth finally gets a finished and full mix! Staying true to many of the trap elements of the original, this remix takes things to a new dimension of sound, bending and skewing perspective with otherworldly and intense drops. A balancing act of colour bass flare and spectacle with the grit and rawness of riddim. A new perspective on an already great song, this one is a must listen!
Showcasing another track from his Paradox EP, this song from Sparklight is a nice minimal take on classic trap sounds. It’s almost relaxing in its vibe, but still manages to carry a pulsing, dark energy throughout.
19 year old musician GLIMM has been around in short while and has featured previously on VibePoniez, ASOS and Ponies at Dawn. Adding to their pony discography of premium quality, we’re gonna have a lesson of musical intervention with their latest and mesmerizing release. Get a grip on of your chair, the aesthetic visuals and hardness of the bass will drift you back to season 4 of MLP G4 with Pinkie’s Wonderbolts Rap on a flaming Phonk beat; the popular Soundcloud subgenre of the 2010s and online car culture. You’ll be sent off at high speed with tempo changes as the wicked cowbell melody will bop your head unconsciously. We hope you have a fire extinguisher nearby for your stereo system after the listening.
After at least a year in the making, Nyanakaru has finally completed his newest album. As it happens, we’ve actually covered each one of these single releases so far (some under his former alias). You can check those out below. The last addition to this is True Colors, an intensely dark and heavy glitchy drumstep-like song – I’m not entirely sure how to describe it, so I recommend taking a listen yourself!
Editor’s note: mild content warning
Naynakaru, over the past eleven months, has been creating something special on his channel. A series of music videos called “Methodic Ways To Break a Mind”. To put it best, it’s some of his best work to date with the magic of mixing genres that he’s got a natural talent for, paired with some engaging animated videos. A mystery surrounding this strange book comes to a head with AJ integrating a perplexed Sweetie Belle! The significant part is that Polka has been paired with Trap and works so well with the scene you are watching unfold here! It adds drama, insanity, and intrigue to this ongoing series of events! As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself!
Content Warning: profanity!
vul might be new to the fandom music scene, but with a full album and active release schedule, they are definitely a talent to watch! “Flutterbutter” comes at you quick with a mountain of hard-hitting lyrics, all performed through AI voicing. The track is impressive both for the writing, trap beat, and the extensive work in coordinating all the AI chops with hip-hop flow! vul announced a hip-hop album is in the works so be sure to watch out for that!
SOUND BANDIT never ceases to amaze me with their production and visuals. A slower, heavier tune, this one has a powerful trap influenced feeling and the occasional heavily processed MLP sample. The vocals have a lot going on. From distorted melodic riffs to the rhythmic pitch glides, ‘DIMENSIONAL’ is a short, yet powerful song.
Sitting somewhere between genres that I can’t quite classify, we have a new remix from TCB! This take on a track from Sound Bandit’s recent debut album keeps some of the hyperpop flavor of the original but showcases TCB’s signature hard-hitting, ultramodern production style. Check it out for a short but sweet fusion of bouncy bass sounds.
