Vylet Pony & Sylver – Catching On | Lounge

Fresh off of Vylet’s new album, he and Sylver combine to make this 50s style instrumental track. Catching On is inspired by several different worldly influences and has a nice blend of a jazzy beat with Brazilian and Mediterranean instrumentation. Even with the upbeat tempo, the song has a very chilled out vibe to it – an impressive achievement befitting the talent of great producers like Vylet and Sylver!



[ASOS] F 109 – Luna De Los Instrumentos (Album Version) | Experimental

F 109 is one of the biggest leading figures in the experimental pony music scene right now, and they hit hard with their magnificent track for A State of Sugar Bubblegum! This version is only about 2 minutes, and I recommend listening to the longer Original Version (included as a bonus track if you download the album from Bandcamp) for even more progressive experimental greatness. Beats, bass, flute, guitar, violin… This track is a wonderful trip and breath of foreign air!


Elias Frost – While My Yovidaphone Gently Drones | Traditional Yak Music

Playing on the name of the classic While My Guitar Gently Weeps from The Beatles, Elias Frost follows up on the early-released new episode with more yovidaphone play that would impress more than one yak. Complete with mighty percussions representing the pride of the yak kingdom, and other traditional instruments, the song is a much welcome continuation to the episode’s lore and pays much tribute to it.
Yak happy! Yak smash!


Jyc Row – Hope | Orchestral

Jyc Row keeps the pillar theme going with this tribute to Somnambula – the pillar of hope. Another exhilarating orchestral piece for his upcoming EP, Hope has a very Egyptian feel to it, no doubt evoking the atmosphere of the town Somnambula. Row uses middle eastern synths and strings to compose tension into the track and introduces war drums so that the beat adds plenty of drama to the piece. The outro is a soothing resolve with a quiet, high wind instrument as it fades out.


Elias Frost – Jaak-Jaaki Dance | Folk

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 15 May 2018.

I truly love when Elias Frost branches out into more folk-influenced stuff, especially when it comes in the form of new original tunes. This piece is inspired by the culture of the great yak race, and definitely sounds like it would represent them well. The woodwind instrumentation is enchanting, and the composition is superb.


Jyc Row – Beauty | Orchestral

Continuing his theme of orchestral tunes for the six legendary pillars, Jyc Row introduces us to his tribute for Mistmane. Learning some new tricks in instrumentation and composition, Jyc Row gives us a nice change of pace with an Asian-themed score, using several instruments indigenous to the continent. The track begins with a very full sound, despite only using a few instruments, then builds into a grandiose, epic soundtrack for the most generous of the pillars. All of the characteristics of a typical JR score are there too, reminding us all why he is one of the premier producers in our music fandom!
