Mindset

Youtube
Soundcloud

Location: Philadelphia, USA
Age: 21

Loudmouth was one of the smoothest house tracks we've heard in a great while and has to be one of my favorites of the year so far. They've followed that up with the dubstep and house hybrid track "Luna Eclipsed" and had the electro meets house "Pinkie's Jam" before that. While that's only 3 tracks, and it's been about 3 months since we've seen something else come out, we've been told that they are had at work for more. Interesting fact that Mindset is a duo and as soon as I wrote their profile they dropped a new moombahton track!

EDIT: Their music has disappeared of youtube!! Put in comments what happened to them. Look for their songs archived in torrents if you wanna hear the. :(

Notable example: "Loudmouth"

Slendermane

Discography

Location: Czech Republic
Age: 19

A promising brony from the Czech Republic who makes dubstep and electro. While he may be a bit low on views (actually scratch that since we posted he's gotten a lot more), he's not short on tracks that are all MLP focused and pretty good. Used to be Dj Hellbunny but he's dropped the rabbit, grabbed pony by the mane, and done Equestria proud. Currently the possessor of the scariest name.

Notable track: "SlenderMane"

Location: Coral Springs, United States
Age: 14

Daring may be young and relatively new to the community (and still coming of age musically), but he's also one of the nicest and most sociable bronies. A wonderful person to know, quick to comment on other's tracks and subscribe, he's just the brony you'd want in your corner. One to watch as he is still trying a variety of music styles (some verging on trollcore) in an effort to get his cutie mark.

Notable track: "Pinkie Pie on Acid"

Spacepsy

Soundcloud

Location: Omaha, USA
Age: 24

He may not have a lot of tracks on his SoundCloud (many appear to have been deleted over time), but he's one of the few bronies that does GOA trance, and he's also a veteran My Little Remix member.



Notable track: Tranceformation
 

Sadsic

Youtube
Soundcloud
Bandcamp

Location: Maryland, USA
Age: 21

Sadsic is a brony who has been with the community from it's early stages. Entering tracks on Toast Beard since ZIQ01, he does a great job of making music outside the norm. Whether it's the glitch-hop of "Granulated Pony", the thrash house of "Ponycast", or the IDM of "Honey (with sci)" it's quite a departure from what other produce even attempt. While the majority of his music on Bandcamp and SoundCloud is non-pony music he is definitely a brony and a Toast Beard veteran that pushes the envelope in an exciting direction.

Notable track: Granulated Pony

Age: 18

While he started with electronic dance music (the awesome sampling job of "Sonic Rainboom" and "The Discord Beat") and have not departed from it, we've seen them also find quite a niche with the graceful piano led renditions of MLP tracks. These have a wonderful natural grace and maturity to them..

Notable track: "Sonic Rainboom"

Neon Jalapeno

Soundcloud

Location: Efland, USA
Age: 16

Another member of Equestrian Hype crew it's good tracks like the Toast Beard response "Yarr, Pirates (feat. Marshmelon)"and F3nning's "Fluttershy's Gala (Bear Murder Remix)" that we adored in the day. No longer a brony but we'll keep the profile just to reflect on days gone by.

Notable track: "Yarr, Pirates (feat. Marshmelon)"

LvLUpMusic

SoundCloud

Location: Boulder, USA
Age: 24

He did the Cutie Mark Crusaders (Trance Mix) and then disappeared from the scene. Well, almost. There's also the "Nightmaremoon" psytrance track additionally on their SoundCloud, but it was never uploaded to Youtube.

Kryptage

Youtube
SoundCloud

Location: USA
Age: 18

A brony cool enough to have Mic the Microphone rap a song directly for him, he is interested in and does a variety of styles of music, mostly specializing in trance. He's most well know for his "Ballad Of The Brony", which samples the web documentary of the same name but is an artist that deserves a closer listen to his many other great tracks as well.

Notable track: Ballad Of The Brony

Claire Anne Carr

Youtube
Bandcamp

Location: Mexico
Age: 24

Another amazing brony musician from Mexico, CAC has done some wonderful and ornate rock covers of MLP tunes, most of them included in their Bandcamp album "My Little PonY RocK!". He also has the album "Sounds of a Pony Soul", which is more electronic and is a fusion between pony and space music. It features floating orchestral sounds and vintage electronics mixing with great ambient music. These tracks are also easily available on his Youtube and are recommended listens.

Notable track: Smile (Rock!)

Meelz

"Writin' rhymes, playin' basslines, and totally not having a thing for Twilight Sparkle. Meelz is a pretty cool guy who makes good music, pony or not, and doesn't afraid of anything. While he doesn't actively make as much music as many other musicians do, he makes sure that each piece of work he produces is at the highest quality, standing on their own as works of art."

Grand Opening!


Well at some point we were planning to have an official grand opening for the site and today is that day! Then again at 3,000+ hits we are hardly a secret (so thanks for the early buzz). While we still have quite a few musicians to get onto our site I think we've come a long way in the past couple of weeks in such a short time frame. Thanks to Legion and Glitchhog for all their amazing help on this site and I think we have a fourth author who should be joining us today, Derpidety (yay and welcome). We have no plans to stop now and will continue to add artists large and small, old and new.

Now what we need from you is to get other bronies and brony sites aware of this site and it's use a resource for the whole music community; artists and fans. Please let Equestria Daily know of our site as it's central that we get the community to find us and help make us useful to that whole community. Also any other major brony music site, blog, or radio station we'd like to link on the side (and we'd like you to link us back). Feel free to let us know any sites we should include and if and when EqD gets us on there (my email was already sent). Again thanks to the brony community for rallying around this site and project and we hope it gets even further use when more people know of us and we expand our vision and site. Please continue to submit entries for any artist not here (right next to the Pinkie Pie image) and comment on any artist's entry that's incorrect and we'll fix it.

Thanks!

Matthew was one of the bright spots in the community when he began, quickly becoming a unique spirit through his wonderful acoustic singer/songwriter tracks. Sadly his music career as a brony musician was cut short when he left to join the army but his presence and absence are still felt to this day.

Oh wait, Matthew is back and making music for us again!!!

"I've been a drummer for years just playing for fun, and then in 2010 decided to ask some of my favorite musicians how they made their music. Soulero told me that he used FL Studio, so I downloaded that and really loved producing songs. Later on, I started watching Friendship is Magic and got to know even more great musicians and even got a few to teach me a few tricks (Thank you Harry)! So I decided to try and give back a little to the community by remixing FiM songs."

EQD Spotlight

Charity album 3: FAITHFUL AND STRONG <---Recently Concluded

The musicians over at My Little Remix are now putting their finishing touches to the soon-to-be-released Seeds of Kindness charity album, which is looking to be over two hours long! You can already find quite a few previews in the playlist above. For the big launch on April 29th, EverFree Radio hosted at noon ET a livestream of the album, and dozens of musicians were there. It also premiered the Massive Smile Project, an amazing cover of Daniel Ingram’s Smile song, performed by 11 soloists and more than 160 choir singers! A round of applause to all the musicians who worked on it

We've heard some great music from 5Copy since he came onto the scene. Some fantastic examples of progressive house with wonderful production. He's done a good job picking up where Archie V temporarily left off and we wish him a similar success. With such great music I hope people will likely catch on to this great brony artist.

Notable track: "Canterlot Dreams"

DJ Amaya

Website
Youtube

DJ Amaya has a handful of pony progressive house remixes, very much in the same vein of Simgretina. While he appeara to have only done two tracks ("MLP Theme" and "Winter Wrap Up"), they were standouta early on. You can still find their tracks (including many more non-pony remixes) around the internet and they're quite good.



Notable track: Winter Wrap Up (DJ AMAYA VS. GROOVEBOT EXTENDED VOCAL CLUB REMIX)


HMage

Age: 28

A significant brony behind the scenes (and a hell of a nice guy). He is a great musician and also an audio engineer. What he's known for under his own name is the fantastic "Flutterwonder" club remix, being the primary DJ for Thorinair's A State of Brony broadcast and mixtapes, and several newer tracks. *Ponyhug*

Notable example: "FlutterWonder (Hmage Club Remix)"

While a new musician, he's making all the right moves with some excellent dubstep tracks such as "Trixie is Best Pony", "Scootastep", as well as the Tara Strong sampling "Twilight-licious". With such a great start, we eagerly wait for more tracks.

Notable example: "Trixie is Best Pony"

An active member on MLR, he is mostly a remixer (favoring dubstep but actually doing a lot more than that), and is a brony DJ in his spare time. A great guy and is consistently active on his tumblr. Stay tuned for an upcoming album with a load of brony musician remixes.

Age: 21

One of our few female musicians (why are there so few?), she has a unique sound to her music that is far different from most brony music. She has an amazing voice, often singing in multiple languages. All this makes her a unique asset to the community (and one that we feel is under-utilized). All we can do is hope for more material as her work is simply beautiful.

I've previously had 7 years of piano lessons at a well known music academy here, still suck at it though, hehe. I already had the entire MLP music archive back somewhere in the middle of 2011, but didn't get around to watching an episode until January 2012."

No matter what you wanna call him, IsaakKvE on Soundcloud or Shiropoint on Youtube, he's skilled in many ways. Though best known for his great pmv work, he also does a series of DJ mixes called Pony: Remix Culture, and a few pony tracks on his own. One busy pony!

Eqbeats

Location: London, Britain, UK
Age: N/A

One of the great unsung heroes of our scene, making great remixes and original tracks that are consistently high quality and some of the most diverse genres we've seen in an artist's repertoire. From liquid drum & bass ("She Am Sky"), country rock ("My Arms Around Her"), reggae (his "Smile Remix), house ("Sweetie Belle's Best Idea Ever" Remix), there's just no limit for his creative energies or ways to reflect the MLP universe in song. We're a fan and we hope you are too.

Notable track: "She Am Sky"

Location: Arizona, USA
Age: 24

Zaqho has a small catalog, but the quality and uniqueness of it is so apparent on first listen. His own track "Luna's Ruse" was an amazing debut to so many listeners, but he's since continued with quite a few top quality collabs with Aviators, d.notive, and The Living Tombstone. Zahqo shares his Youtube Channel with Haymaker, who is often his partner in music production.

Notable example: Luna's Ruse

Bagpipe Brony/psychogoth

Bandcamp

Location: Glendale, California, USA
Age: 23

Another awesome (and popular) orchestral musician from the brony scene, he has a number of albums on Bandcamp and loads of videos on Youtube. He is not limited to classical music though, as he actually has 2 non-orchestral Bandcamp albums, each appropriately named PoniFolk and PoniTronic, and been nailing both darkwave and synthpop as the artist of our electric dreams. As expected, you will hear the occasional bagpipe creep up in his music to match his namesake (as he does play that). He is currently fulfilling his dream of becoming a future film composer.

Notable track: Trixie Returns: I Will Rise!

Michael A.

Michael has made some great pony trance and EDM for the community since joining the scene. With a few remixes and collabs under his belt now (with DerpyGrooves and Metajoker, for example), he's clearly got a knack for dance music and finding great talent to work with.  New single on bandcamp!

Notable Track: Twilight’s Madness

RainbowCrash88

Orchrestral composer of the fantastic music for the upcoming Fighting is Magic (cancelled by Habsro but being released as a bootleg), he also covers MLP show tunes in 8-bit (ie chiptune). Well known for his individualized pony fighting themes and his Gameboy pony covers of songs from the show, as well as other video game soundtracks. Swag.

Age: N/A

We adore his great trance track "Above Cloudsdale", but have yet to hear anything since except a few more WIPs on SoundCloud. Hopefully we'll will see some more in the future, but if there's only 1 track to remember him by, we'll be quite happy with this one.

Notable example: Above Cloudsdale

TaisikKP

Youtube
SoundCloud

Location: USA
Age: 22

Some great tracks from this brony, such as a remix of Ken Ashcorp's 20% Cooler and of Underpony - She Am Sky. He's also had some original chill out music that has a great, atmospheric quality to it.

Notable example: She Am Sky Collab

&I (And I)

SoundCloud

Location: Wiesbaden, Germany
Age: N/A

A great addition to the scene, creating very melodic dubstep and other electronic music. It's nice that they've found an alternative to the loud, modern dubstep of today to do something with a little more style and grace than the average pony track.


Notable track: Smile on Ya Face!

Sethex

SoundCloud

Location: Plainfield, United States
Age: 13!?

Doing a lot of dubstep, he's done a good job in a short time of putting out some rather good original pony tracks with chopped up vocals and wonderful wubs. We certainly hope to see more great music from him!



Notable track: "Rarity's Grace"

Senntenial

Youtube
SoundCloud

Location: N/A
Age: N/A

While it's unclear whether they are dedicated to pony music or bounce back and forth, we've heard some great MLP tracks from them such as "Rarity Tripping Down the Stairs" and "20% Cooler" on their SoundCloud. We hope to see more melodic dubstep, drum & bass, or (frankly any) other genres from them. Also capable of a wonderful anrdogynous vocal when he needs to like the recent (and amazing) "Catch Your Fall".

Notable track: Catch Your Fall

Echelon

A new pony in town. Too early to comment on him other than to say that he makes pretty good dubstep and we wish to see more. He's mostly active on his SoundCloud, so feel free to send him some love.

GaugeN

GuageN is a relatively recent dubstep producer (as well as other genres of electronic), releasing music since December. He's constantly improving as a musician, so definitely check out his music.

Replacer

Location: Wellington, New Zealand
Age: 26

Replacer emerged into the scene with the amazing synthpop track "Cerulean Blue", and just as quickly has shown all range of music since, from the IDM souding "Cleaned Up" to a ponified rock cover of "Let 'em In", and has also remixed/covered a few pony tracks as well. It's clear that the guy can sing and has a penchant for great pop music, so we hope that he continues his great streak of wonderful brony music.

Notable track: Cerulean Blue

TAPS

Bandcamp

Location: USA
Age: N/A

TAPS has found great success on Youtube and Bandcamp with his diverse electronic music. I believe he finds Fluttershy best pony as his music often seems to represent that focus, but there's no shortage of great tracks and character spotlights. There are a few hip-hop collabs in his catalog now, as well.

Notable Track: Rainbow Flight

The real origin of Brony music, it would be dumb not to include the man who made all this happen. If Daniel didn't assist in making all the great music in the show, there likely wouldn't be the massive music scene that emerged from it.

It's hard to stand out in the dubstep scene, especially with only one real track released on Youtube. Yet somehow, ThatSonofaMitch has done it, with almost 1,700 subscribers to his name as of writing.  In addition, he has some great, high-quality show tune rips up on his SoundCloud page. Highly active on his tumblr too.

Notable Example: Shadow of a Flower (ThatSonofaMitch Remix)

Nick The Punk Rock Pony

Location: Canada
Age: 18

As his channel description says, "I noticed that most pony music vids were electronic and dubstep (nothing wrong with that), but I want to bring something different to the table". Well, he's done that. Not many bronies specialize in punk rock. Beyond that, he's also expanded into doing instrumentals of show songs and orchestral music. Check him out below.

Notable example: Luna's Eclipse

Con7empt

Location: Birmingham, AL
Age: 20

Con7empt is a great dubstep producer that dropped three incredibly solid tracks three weeks in a row back in February and March, most notable his remix of Discord. Definitely keep a look out for his future tracks, you won't want to miss them.

Notable Example: Odyssey - Discord (Contempt Remix)

TwentyTen

Members:
The Living Tombstone (Youtube)
Wooden Toaster/Glaze (Youtube)

TwentyTen is something of a dream team for the brony music community: four great artists, all in one group. They have all worked together in the past (see September, Beyond Her Tomb, Love Me Cheerilee, etc), but officially created this group back in September. With a stunning grand total of one track to their name so far (the incredibly polished Obsolete), we're all looking for what they have in store next.

Location: Rockford, USA
Age: N/A

bronyMirage has an amazing assortment of hardcore tracks, and while ponycore is a genre name that is pretty despised, in this case it might be actually quite apt. Tracks like "Vinyl's Vibrator" and "The Fun Has Been Doubled" have been well received and are indicative of the onslaught of pony hardcore music that you'll be experiencing. You won't find him on Youtube, so go on and run to his SoundCloud or Bandcamp if you want a plethora of pony perfection (pun!).

The Beatle Bronies' adaptions of Beatles tunes into Pony tunes (by changing the lyrics of the songs into MLP focused tracks) may have made them a one-trick pony, but they have found quite a few fans, a big spotlight in the fandom, and a Bandcamp page with album titles and covers that mirror their respective originals. Perhaps their greatest achievement is honoring both the pony and Beatles communities and being one of the only pony bands (multiple members of the band all united by the internet) running. All You Need is Ponies!

Ken Ashcorp

Location: Nottingham, UK
Age: 21

Another one-pony wonder, Ken's electro-house tribute to ponies was just a stopover in a music career that's built on mostly video game and cartoon music. It's such a solid party tune and a massive anthem that we can forgive it for being less pony than some of our tracks, as it's still one of our favorite club tunes. It has found new life in some awesome brony remixes by artists like Alex S and TaisiKP (there are 2 versions by him, actually), so there's multiple ways of experiencing this awesome track.

Notable track: 20% Cooler (duh)
