Jastrian returns after the success of Ghostie with a different kind of track. A more-than-spiritual successor to a previous track of his, Flutterbound, Flutterscape builds up an atmosphere of bliss with gorgeous vocal samples of yellow and pink pone. The synths complement the vocal samples perfectly, and the whole piece feels incredibly uplifting. This is the kind of music I think Jastrian does best, and it definitely shows here, so make sure to give it a listen!
With one of the heaviest tracks I've heard in recent times, Trixent continues to catch up for lost time with some of the coolest neuro sound design I've heard. All of their recent releases have really impressed me, and this is no different. With immaculate percussion, dark chord stabs, brooding pads and of course the beautifully designed bass sounds this is definitely worth checking out!
A new project is underway to celebrate all the animation talent in the fandom. The plan is to fully animate the first episode of the show with clips from varying styles. Right now the following people are onboard:
With many more showing interest if the project picks up.
Head on down below the break for the intro video!
Two voice talents from Friendship is Magic are once again nominated for the UBCP/ACTRA awards. We've won and lost spots in this before from various categories these past few years, and have another shot to make up for it.
Two people in particular are in the running for "Best voice"
- Peter Kelamis is nominated for playing Big Daddy McColt
- Andrea is nominated for “The One Where Pinkie Pie Knows”
You can find a full list of people in the running over here.
Thanks to Jason for the heads up.
174UDSI is pretty darn good at upbeat house stuff, and whilst a lot of his tracks sound pretty similar at times, it's not necessarily a bad thing. Here though, he's released an amazing track that is absolutely taken to another level by the fantastic use of vocal sampling and chopping. I really like when people add an extra layer to their productions with stuff like that, and it's definitely paid off here with what is probably my favourite track he's released so far.
The usual legal demons have popped their heads up again for another round of trouble. A Lawsuit has been filed against My Little Pony: Puzzle Party from Peak Games; the makers of the game "Toy Blast". Venture Beat did some investigating and found that it really does look like it copied just about everything, from the shape of the fields to the tutorials.
Toy Blast has been out since 2015 and shot up to #1 on Google play and #3 on iTunes, so this isn't a small deal by any means.
You can find one of those screenshots below, or all over them over here.
Note: I supposed we will see what happens to the game going forward. If you want to hold on to it in case there is a shut-down, you might want to turn of updates.
I, for one, really enjoyed that season. It may or may not have been due to Glimmy and Trix, but I bet im not the only one that loved those two.

Lots of comics! And mainly single parters this time since Calpain is at NMND and I don't have his update list. You should all send those. Warning on #4 and 5, they are pretty shippy.
Go get them below!
4EverfreeBrony has brought on the feels in collaboration with lyricism from TrojanPony, and some beautiful piano work from Metajoker with this new wonderful piece of music. The instrumental is quite minimal, yet doesn't feel empty at all, especially when that really nice flute sound comes in. The vocals and piano are the heroes of the track though, and both are performed perfectly. If you're up for a moving track about Twilight losing her treehouse, make sure to check it out!
