Dj Pon-3 Befriends CgEyeGuy - Fluttershy's Funk Train Dj Pon-3 6/1/2012 12:37:03am No.9 - Score: 9
CgEyeGuy's Train (and the phrase "that is so train") has kind of a cult status in the community so I thought a new remix of the track should be a journey of all things (and named) train, funky, and give it another spotlight. This is a dj mix with all loads of train tracks (pun!) and also a track remix so enjoy this summer ride. Trains + ponies + disco + funk = shenanigans!


You miss me? Time To Party Hard! Nix_Spark 6/2/2012 10:03:38am No.14 - Score: 6

Vocals are by Riff Track!

(And yes, I did this to pretty much war with Celtik :P )


Still Shy (Vip) (Feat. Metajoker) (Bartekko Remix) (Edit) Bartekko Befriends ArtAttack & Metajoker 6/2/2012 5:41:51pm No.21 - Score: 5
I was boooooooooored.

Heat Neon5torm 5/30/2012 8:43:14pm No.5 - Score: 4
Style: Chill
This is what happens when Equestria has a heatwave. The calm before the inevitable storm. You know the feeling. Anything that requires any sort of work is almost impossible. You feel like a rock in the sun. Why not sit inside with a drink and forget about world for a bit while you

Summer (Cherax's Buck You, It's Winter Mix) (WIP) Cherax Destructor 6/2/2012 1:14:41pm No.15 - Score: 4
This actually started life about three weeks ago, but got put on the backburner due to a) uni work, and b) Balloon Party. I managed to produce a version I'm happy with for TB, but it's not 100% done. Only... 90%.

This is the most fun I've had with drums. Ever.

(Download available when it's actually done, and when CanterFlex Records sorts itself out.)

Summer Sun Celebration 2012 (Before Dawn) Seventh Element 6/2/2012 1:39:56pm No.17 - Score: 4
Ok, toastbeard entry related to summer! Umm, only way I could relate this to ponies I guess is by that one celebration that Nightmare Moon ruins. Except I guess this takes place after that and just imagine DJ Pon-3 playing a set at this event. This particular song takes place before Celestia as brought out the sun. Or something. IDK, I'm not really sure if I like this track or not. Any feedback would be fantastic, positive or negative.

On A Warm Summer Wind AdamTh3Walker 6/2/2012 8:53:39pm No.26 - Score: 4
Here you go :3

Giving up on what we thought would be our only fight
I can’t be the one to hold the elements of life
I will care even if you don’t
I will be your friend when you’re alone

Don’t be overshadowed by the gravity of doubt
With unbridled confidence your buoyancy will out
I’ll be there when you leave the ground
you will find the other side of what we knew about

This wind will guide the rest of us to
open up our eyes
One hoof in the present and the
other in the sky

Don’t be afraid to see beyond the things your eyes
Tell you are true These are insignificant barriers
Give them a push and see where it leads you
From heart to mind, dreams into belief, carry your
Anxious pride, your hope, your secret light, a
Remnant of eternal night Inside you
Keep your head up, look at the sky, beautiful
Things abound, you shout aloud, Scootaloo

Warmth becomes these summer months when
cold things melt away
You will always mean to me
more than I could say

Crashing a Pony Beach Party Riff Track 5/27/2012 11:55:50am No.1 - Score: 3
One day all the ponies you love were dancing when suddenly Tom came the fuck out of nowhere and crashed everything. The End.

Cloudflash - Summer House natsukashi 6/2/2012 1:37:03pm No.16 - Score: 3
I'll miss you my dear laptop that I'll have to leave after this weekend. This WIP will mark either a breif or long hiatus in my music making, depending on when I can get a new computer!

Daddy Discord's Factory ancara22 6/2/2012 3:41:00pm No.19 - Score: 3
The ponies play and enjoy the summer, doing whatever they tend to normally do then.

meanwhile, in a forgotten factory with a statue placed there to hopefully conseal it forever, a strange, screwy robot goes up to it, and then......

....well........this happens.

Summer Sun Celebration Orchestral Flinckie 6/1/2012 11:24:13am No.10 - Score: 2
Summer!? Do you people know where I'm from? I can't work with that theme!

Oh, umm, I guess I can. Have an orchestral, everyone.

Ponyville Summer ScootaLewis 6/2/2012 8:01:36am No.12 - Score: 2
It’s a ponyville Summer
And the pegasi are workin’
Keep the clouds at bay
And there’ll surely be no shirkin’
The sky’s gotta be bright
For all the ponies that are lurkin’...

And the ponies that have got
A whole lotta nothin’ to do!

A whole lotta joy
And a whole lotta sappiness
A whole lotta fun and a sackfulla happiness
And above all else,
There’s a whole lotta nothin’ to do!

The schools are comin’ out
And the holidays have started
A time of renewal
For the sad and broken-hearted
A time to move on
To the future uncharted

And a time when you could have
A whole lotta nothin’ to do!

A Whole lotta sun
And endless possibilities,
So many ways
To forge a new reality
But don’t forget,
There’s still a whole lotta nothin’ to do!


Summer Mournings zorg 6/2/2012 7:19:26pm No.24 - Score: 2
