So the Maressey project kicked off this week.   It’s a project that’s been in the planning stage for nearly 2 years and featuring ponified covers of The Smiths vast song catalog. Expect to see weekly releases featuring a variety of different brony collaborators involved. 

Check out their channel for the first song featuring Zatslol and Freewave and sub to see many more future tracks.

Sometimes when you’ve seen a plethera of brony musicians come and go it’s easy to feel underwhelmed by the “typical” pony EDM. Aphylliate is not new (making music since 2012) but when he filled out a bmd entry just recently it was a perfect time to get reacquainted with someone who is stepping out from the herd.  I wanted to elevate his profile here on FIMM as these tracks are pretty fantabulous.

” I started writing music on the Playstation when I was just 9 years old. Since then I have written for wind bands, small trios, guitar, piano and a few string instruments. I currently produce a range of genres that mainly encompass breakbeat, trance, hardcore, techno, rock, 8-bit and house. I’ve been in the fandom since 2012 and love to write songs based on the stories, adventures and ideas both from the show and the fandom. I use Logic Pro 9 and barely anything else. You can purchase (most) of my music from my bandcamp, if it’s not on there it means i think it needs fixing!!”

Good for you!

It was a big drive, and unemployment isn’t fun, but I’ve had plenty moments like that where, it was only after I got the job, that it sunk in exactly what I got myself into and I walked away almost immediately.

Our staff member ph00tbag (AKA Sonic Rainboom) wanted to give a shout out to these special tracks this week.

image

Night Breeze - Childhood Eyes

From the opening chords of Childhood Eyes, it’s clear that this tune is something really special. It starts out quiet and hesitant, but it eventually builds into a full and confident tune. In every section, too, there are some chord changes that really surprised me, but wound up making the tune much more impactful. I was quite pleased to hear this tune.

image

D1SCORDANT3 - Hard Reset

I love the sound effect that plays every four bars that sounds like some horrible hellspawn roaring in fury. There’s a lot of really neat sound design decisions in this tune that I like, really. I’m also a fan of the phaser on the snare and hats. It’s really tough to have an effect like that and still keep the instruments involved clean.

image

Dr. Dycer - Want it Need it

Dr. Dycer’s back at it with a look into the potentially distressing properties of certain spells in the MLP universe. Want It Need It is a great showcase of Dycer’s mastery of the creepy. The background vocalizations in the chorus are a great touch, but what sells this for me is the whispering at the end of the chorus, which is in the original by Jeffthestrider, but Dycer’s delivery is perfect.

image

Grizzly - Baltimare Mining Operation (OfficeBats Remix)

I featured the original Baltimare Mining Operation here a while back, because it was a rare example of Techno. In this tune, Officebats brings a totally different approach to the original concept, showcasing the variety available in the Techno genre. This one has a bit more of a ravey vibe, with the pitch-shifted Amen interludes

image

wacarb - Hey Pony Waifu

This. Song. I don’t really know how to introduce this song. It starts out sweet, kinda. It quickly becomes different, before moving right along into strange. Then, it blows right beyond creepy into utterly wrong. As a listener, one can really only grab ahold and hope not to fall off because one is laughing so hard.

image

Jeff Burgess and the Bad Mares - Home (Aoshi Acid Trap Remix)

Remixes that totally change the context of the original tune are really fun. In this case, the original Home was a touching tune about Luna and Celestia. This remix is completely irreverant, casting the story in a completely different light. As always, Aoshi has some really creative and dirty sound design, which is something I’m happy to listen to again and again.

image

Shurrikane - All or Nothing

I love how the intro to this tune evokes the stomps of Tirek as he advances. Shurrikane’s ability to evoke things like that is on display throughout the tune. Even though musically, not much changes, Shurrikane uses changes in orchestration to convey the intended image. This is especially evident in the end, where the same theme is played, but the bells give it a more funereal sense, compared to the combative tone of the preceding segments.

image

Arturo Fonseca - I Truly Didn’t

Arturo Fonseca really knocks it out of the park with this one. The minimal instrumentation is perfect, giving the tune an introspective feel. Lyrically, the tune is fairly minimal, as well, but it really sets up perfectly for the last line to hit hard right in the feels. The solo, too, is quite wonderful, and matches perfectly the somber nature of the tune.

image

Starbreeis - Hush Now, Quiet Now (Cover)

I can’t get enough of Starbreeis’s loungy vocals. Her composition is often missed while listening to the singing, though. In this tune, it’s worth to note the points where she throws in little background vocals in the chorus. She’s also added an extra verse to Hush Now, which fits perfectly, such that if I didn’t know better, I’d think it was from the original.

image

Psychgoth - Meet Fair Rarity

The vocal cuts in this tune are just so much fun. In a way, this is another one of those tunes that reminds me of the music that was being made in the beginning of the community. Goofy, silly dance music with glitching vocal cuts carrying the melody. I kinda wish there was more stuff like that.

image

4everfreebrony ft. Chi Chi & Relative1Pitch - Chant of Mirth (Wubbaducky’s Space Out Remix)

Wubbaducky is another artist whose work I’ve recently become enamoured with. He makes a lot of bold production decisions that make me happy. What sold me on this tune was the liberal application of sidechain compression on the original Chant of Mirth vocals, but with the kick’s output high passed and dropped, so that the vocals duck seemingly on their own. The effect is trippy and strange, but it totally does it for me.

We hope you give them a listen and throw some feedback to those who took the time to remix old favorites and created new tracks that show off the corners of Equestria. Thanks again to Stars in Autumn for making this event happen again!

Jeff Burgess - Born to Trot Released August 20, 2012

So today is the 2 year anniversary of my first pony album Born to Trot.

I’m just still overwhelmed by all of the love and support I get from all of you guys. Some of you guys who comment on my songs I have been reading all of your comments since my first few pony songs.

I think I speak for most of the brony musicians I have met when I say none of us could have improved the way we have without the love we get from this fandom.

I haven’t been doing very well lately so it’s just really heartwarming to think about all of the stuff I never really thought I’d do thanks to you guys. Thank you.

My new album isn’t done yet. I’d like to have it done by maybe my birthday (October 15th) but realistically, if it’s done by the first of the year I’ll be satisfied. It’s a looser concept album than Autumn Nights, and I’m focusing on really getting the music as tight as possible. RainSnowHail is just a guardian angel and agreed to mix it for me, and knowing how hard I am to work with, it’s just a blessing.

Thank you guys so much.
