Seventh Element has been a blessing on this fandom for what seems like forever. This remake is a giant, wonderful meme glorifying a couple of moments in brony music history. The B Word is a catchy trap piece using Silva Hound’s infamous “You are such a brony” line as well as a few other memes as chops. The instrumental work is well-composed and bizarre in a way that only Seventh can make it, featuring an eerie synth, battle horns, and interspersed pony chops as well. The visuals are silly and entertaining – do yourself a favor and watch this video!
And so, we’ve come to the 6th and final piece of SCRATON’s mane 6-themed tracks. For those keeping watch, the last one we’ve been expecting is the element of magic, and it’s finally here. Veni Vidi Vici is a lovely future bass track with a smooth set of vocals and infectious trap elements. When the drop hits, we’re privy to a wonderful melody primarily driven by vocal chops and synths that you’ll never get enough of. The description notes that no king or queen rules forever, but their legacy will never die, which is a fitting analogy for MLP’s 4th generation as well as this series of songs. Such a beautiful way to send off this series of tracks!
Below is an additional review from guest writer DrakeEmberHeart.
SCRATON has saved Twilight for last. For the final track of his Mane 6 series, we get a track that feels and sound like what BOOKHORSE has been through. It’s some epic future bass that gets you picture the evolution of her character. The lyrics. The vocal chops, the spell binding meleody of her journey. When I hear this I picture her walking past moment of her greatness done in the show. From a student unicorn to big alicorn BOOKHORSE! This song is a celebration of princess Twilight Sparkle. As always this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself
Zizkil returns to A State of Sugar with the 9th track from Brownie! Fervor – which is written about Dragon Lord Ember – showcases his familiar complextro style with eerie vocal chops, elements of trap and ethnic-sounding instruments. Give it up for the ASOS staple!

I got to hand it to SCRATON for his 5th track of mane six tributes. I don’t think a song has captured Rarity’s personality as well as this one has before! Right off the bat, this song hits you with a generous dose of classy style, starting off with a brief samba-inspired section before jumping into SCRATON’s usual electronic flair. Like the element of generosity herself, this song gives off an aura of beautiful showmanship and funk which honestly fits her character super well. The beat switches it up to where you can picture Rarity having a wonderfully good time dancing it up with fabulous style, but then we’re thrust into another change; an absolutely gorgeous drop with vocal samples that feel like they were meant for Rarity. Overall, this song does well to capture Rarity’s personality, even without words. Time for a party at the Carousel Boutique!

SCRATON is back again with the 4th track of this series of tunes themed to the the mane 6! Welcome to Honesty. Centred around Applejack, Powerhorse is fitting name for this track, seeing as she’s Equestria’s strongest earth pony. This song does something different with her character. The melody and beats seem to celebrate Applejack’s spirit, utilising an upbeat melody that is fitting of AJ’s strength and hard work. But there is something else. The soft female vocals which are a common theme in these tracks almost seem like Rarity sang them, particularly when “oh darling, please don’t go” pops up in the middle; reminding Applejack to not work so hard, to relax and come with her. The production is fantastic on how good and powerful this song’s honesty is.
In a surprise twist, Omnipony has recently returned to the MLP scene with their first song under the Omnipony alias in quite a long, long time! I FLARE U STARE is a unique banger that showcases their style by mixing DnB with elements of trap, wonky as well as some kooky samples! The second half of the song showcases the latter two elements more prominently, using a disjointed beat in front of some heavy synths and bass before eventually transitioning into a melodic ambient section. What a way to return, eh? I’m sure we can expect great things from Omni in the future.
The next step in SCRATON’s Mane 6 themed tracks is Sky’s The Limit (Loyalty)! This trap tune is full of beats and basslines that hit hard, as well as some lovely female vocals. The production here is top-notch; it’s no wonder he has 101K subscribers! Only two more in this series of elemental songs remain…
Even the happiest souls show signs of sadness every now and again. Empty Inside is Nyancat380’s latest track, and consists of a chilled out trap beat set to some sad synth chords and 8-bit styled leads. The use of an image of a cheery Pinkie Pie in front of the emotional piece makes for a big juxtaposition of two completely different moods. It makes you wonder if Pinkie’s happy demeanour is just a mask for deeper and darker things inside of her…
It seems Checkerëd has a knack for remixing some really old but gold MLP fan tunes! Pink Lick is one of them, and their remix of the Flutter Rex original really changes things up! Checkerëd’s version has a faster pace and lots of trippy synthlines, including a unique trap beat as a soft supplement between the heavier bits. Prepare for the bass!
Canvas returns with his first track of the year, as well as this decade’s first release on Basshoof Records. Grow is a unique and melancholy piece that combines softer and heavier elements. Juxtaposed between the catchy drums and future bass synths are soft ambient noises such as a piano, bells, sampled vocal chops and even the sound of birds chirping. Hybrid songs such as this make for great opportunities to incur such feelings.
