Dj Pon-3 Befriends Psychedelic Brony - Love Poison 3000 Dj Pon-3 & Psychedelic Brony 3/17/2012 4:18:46pm No.21 - Score: 3
Wandered into a strange land? (earth) Time Travel episode? (check!) I can be on topic this week for Toast Beard!

Well my track I'm debuting on Toast Beard tonight has been a long time coming,, a remix of Psychedelic Brony's 1969 classic Love Poison (ie The Perfect Stallion). We're both label mates and this Big Beat flavored track from "1995" is imported from Equestria and amazingly enough reflects what was going on in the UK at the time (nods to Fatboy Slim and The Freestylers). Luckily Twilight's cross-dimensional / time travelling portal works so I can bring back some records that I made in Equestria a few decades back, import them, and rip them to digital for you non-ponies. ;) Thanks to Psyche for the amazing original, Hmage for the mastering, Mallard for the Vinyl Artwork, and EHype for the printing presses and the support over the years.

All the cool kids are doing it... I guess I had to try it. This was super rushed, like seriously... Don't know what else to say other than this was my first time doing this type of thing... be gentle?

Lost In a Space Rainforest DJ Night-Mare 3/14/2012 3:55:36am No.9 - Score: 2
So, imagine pinkie pie and Fluttershy are lost in a space rainforest. It'd be trippy.

Dieties of Synth Programming, Drumloops Slicing and Composing Stoemwoof & Twiangle 3/16/2012 5:15:25am No.12 - Score: 2
We made a song out of 4 presets that were made in 10 minutes.

Monochrome Mane Psychedelic Brony + Neon Jalapeño + Automatic Jack 3/16/2012 11:06:08pm No.13 - Score: 2
Daring Do is lost in a far away island, and this is what comes of it.

Automatic Jack: Made the beat
Neon Jalapeño: Made wobble bass on first drop, wrote lyrics for the monologue part, and added creepy arpeggiated piano
Psychedelic Brony: Everything else

/me haves sex with FLStudio Bartekko 3/15/2012 5:10:45pm No.10 - Score: 1
...and finishes in ableton

Basically, It's the first time ever I was determined to use FLStudio to make a song. AND GUESS WHAT. I loved it.
However the mixing was SO HORRIBAD, I had to export everything. And as FLStudio is not really as good as ableton when it comes to mixing, I shamelessly imported everything into ableton, and done everything here. I could have asked HMage for that, but meh, fuck that. I, A TOTAL NEWB CAN totally DO EVERYTHING BETTER THAN A PROFESSIONAL ENGINEER, AMIRITE?
I love FLStudio, but hate how it deals with samples, and drums. So, samples and drums in ableton. everything else in FLStudio from now on.
also, sorry, but I ain't gonna be at the synclisten because university

Rarity in Paris (Electro-Swing) NewWorldMare 3/17/2012 7:23:16pm No.23 - Score: 1
Rarity goes to France and becomes embroiled in the electro-swing scene.

I had a lot of fun making this song. Electroswing isn't a genre I've done before, so I thought I'd try it out =D

Pinkie and the Labyrinth of Eldritch Beasts Neon Jalapeño (as Crystallinity) 3/17/2012 7:47:39pm No.24 - Score: 1
"Write a song in you're not familiar with."

I took this opportunity to make everyone's least favorite genre! Can you guess what it is?

I'm also using this alias for all further things in this genre to prevent fan rage.
