The DNR Project


Location: NC, US
Age: N/A

Another group of lesser knowns, The DNR Project are a duo working on electronic tracks with a scent of classical music. Their main focus seems to be dubstep and drum n' bass, so songs in those genres are most likely to be seen in the future.


Notable track: The DNR Project - Queen Chrysalis

Blog Update!!

Well we hit 25,000 views this week which is wonderful news. You may have noticed that we have a genre section now which should add some better search capabilities to this site. We will continue to play around with that and change it based on your feedback. I also have 3 new staff members who have jumped in to assist in helping run and update this site. A big thank you to Matthew N., LFP, and Emperor Übermensch for coming to my aid when I really needed it several weeks ago.

As always we rely on your submissions and comments to update the site and we will try to begin doing some interviews with some of our favorite brony musicians soon so we can know them even better than we initially did. Stay tuned, give us feedback, and we'll keep updating. Most of all just keep making music and we'll try to spotlight new or overlooked artists as we come across them.  
I'm going to highlight some staff videos this week below as we all make music too and struggle to be heard and seen. Please show them some love (comment + subscribe) if you like their work as they take time out of their schedules to give back to the community and get other brony artists on this blog.

*Peace and Ponyhugs*

Knoedels

Youtube

Location: Australia
Age: 21

Not a new artist this time around but with 2 Pinkie themed show remixes ("Cupcakes" and "Giggle at the Ghosties") one that you might not be familiar with. While they did a pretty good with both we haven't seen anything since. So we'll just create a quick little entry to remember their contributions. 


Notable track: Cupcakes (Knoedels Remix)

Location: UK
Age: 17

Another brand new brony musician that is making some fantastic music in such a short time. Their first track came out in the end of May (the downtempo BBBFF), and they've made some more club oriented, amazing vocal heavy show remixes, mostly in a great eurotrance style. The production and samples use is not just spot on, but pretty remarkable, breathing life into old MLP favorites, especially with the great original vocal work additions. We'll stop complimenting him if you promise to visit his site right away.

Notable track: The Perfect Stallion Remix
 

Korw

Soundcloud

Location: Australia
Age: 24

Korw has been on a roll with 3 brony tracks in 3 months, all EqD approved and for good reason (as they are great). He started with a house remix FIM - Twilight Sparkle Stage Theme, followed it with an original orchestral house track "Luna's Moon Dance", and then released the awesome complextro "You Can Run (but you can't hide)". With such an amazing start we can't wait to see what the future holds for this great new artist.

Notable track: You Can Run (but you can't hide)

Not much to say here other than "keep on doing what you're doing", since his remix of "Luna" is the only pony-themed song he's got out yet. I'll hopefully be able to expand this description once more songs appear from this very young producer.

Notable track: Luna (Remix)

Derezzie


Location: California
Age: N/A

Another young in terms of experience in music production artist striving for audience, Derezzie could really use some of your ears to provide him with some feedback and to boost his will to produce more pony-themed songs. I'd say so far so good!

Notable track: Crush Kill Destroy SWAG (Derezzie Original Mix)

DijiTwitch (Dijital)


Location: Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
Age: 19

DijiTwitch seems to enjoy making a more relaxed style of electronic tracks. Mixed in with some ambient and drum n' bass'y songs, he's got quite a range of abilities and ways to possibly reveal his great, hidden talent. Now go on and give him a listen.

Notable track: Stars

Emperor Übermensch/Ed Viper


Location: Los Angeles, CA
Age: 18

His favourite genre being UK Step (the British style of dubstep), Emperor Übermensch came with the infamous third wave of brony artists that has hard time getting out there in the open. Despite being a very young producer, he's learning fast and his powerful garage beats may be to your liking. He was forced to leave the community a while back due to personal reasons, but has now returned under the alias "Ed Viper".


Notable Track: Fluttershy The Monster

Zatslol


Location: UK
Age: 17

"I know that everybody says this but I like to experiment genre wise. The main genres I work around however are jazz, alternative rock, some swing and sometimes funk. Most of my songs also tend to be acoustic because I love the sound of an acoustic guitar.

I started out writing parodies in mid 2011 but have since moved on to writing original songs. I'm a self taught guitarist and bass player and I have collaborated with a few other song writers in the past. I'm always happy to lend vocals to a song!

Notable track: Ponyvillians

Yaplap


Location: N/A
Age: N/A

The Yaplap brothers are the masterminds behind the entire screamo FU*KING series (such as The Perfect FU*KING Stallion and This FU*KING Day Aria). No idea when they will permanently injure their vocal chords, so enjoy and subscribe while they still have their voices.

Warning: playing the video prior to lowering your main volume may cause severe trauma.

Notable Track: Find a FU*KING Pet

X-Trav


Location: Melbourne, USA
Age: N/A

X-Trav has been in the brony community for most of a year, and while they have done a variety of music, a lot of it has been orchestral or purposely for BGM, such as his music for Manestream Media's Audio Fanfics and the music for the "Discordantly" fanfic.

Well Jenny Nicholson and Griffin Lewis are the collective known as SherclopPones and do both the series and the great background music to it.

Probably most well known for the amazing pseudo-opera Daddy Discord released several months ago, though he also well known for other great instrumental tracks like his whimsical "Pinkie Pied Piper", "Flutterguy", and the spooky "Baked Bads". A prolific artist to say the least, as he has a load of pony videos and tracks for your enjoyment. Make sure to check out the darkwave classic Daddy Discord.

NightColt


Gone for about a year now, he was here early on. He did a few epic sing-alongs, a few metal versions (2) of Not A Clever Pony tracks, as well as one original symphonic death metal before departing.

Age: 19

When he's not making real-life musical box covers of pony tracks, he's doing them virtually via solo piano, or more extravagant orchestral versions (on Synthesia and Garageband). As you'll also notice, he's quite a Minecraft fan and does a few tracks via their Minecraft Song Planner and a few more video game covers in 8-bit as well, explaining the 25,000+ subscribers.

Notable track: Winter Wrap Up Piano Suite in B Major 

Hirosashii

Location: Raleigh, USA
Age: 20


Hirosashii makes some great bright electronic pony music that evolves past the original MLP tracks they sample and were based off of. He's had amazing success on his youtube (just hit 1000 as I am writing this) and appears not be slowing down anytime soon. He can bust a move too.

Notable track: Gala Rala

Cyril the Wolf

Youtube

Location: Madrid, NY
Age: 22

Cyril does all things rock (acoustic, funk, and electric) and the occasional bits of metal (power and 80's styles preferred). He didn't have to travel far to make Bronycon this summer, and was hard to miss (entertaining the crowd outside the con via acoustic guitar). He regularly makes podcasts and performs from his home via Youtube.

Notable Track: Nightmare Night (Symphonic Version)














AspectOfTheStorm

Location: USA
Age: 17


"I'm a 17 year old Brony with a lot of hobbies. I write programs/3D games, play guitar/violin, and compose music. I also like photography and cinematography. Oh, and I can speak a little Russian." 

What else? Well, he makes great orchestral tracks (original and covers) and can couple that with some excellent live keyboard playing (which he's captured on Youtube).

Notable track: Avast Octavia's Orchestra (Re-Orchestrated)

Location: Fremont, USA
Age: N/A

A brony musician who won't get pigeonholed into a specific genre style, although electronic is a given and he has a knack for great production with a light airy feel to it. A college student who is majoring in video game programming and finding the time to make some great music.

Notable track: Fluttershy's Vacation

Elliptisoar

Bandcamp

Location: Illisnois, USA
Age: 16

Like Archie V, Elliptisor is great at juggling a musical path that covers pony and non-pony releases and some great electro-house. Unlike him, he appears to have a wider musical range (some dubstep and some vocal tracks) and he has a slightly higher rate of non-pony tracks that show off some incredible talent. He shouldn't be a secret anymore, so keep track of this future brony star as he's got an amazing skill and a incredibly modern sound

Notable Track: I Know You're In There

DeeKayPony

Age 16

With just one listen to "Flutterdie", any brony metal fan will likely tremble in anticipation. There are many other great brony metal tracks here, but most are previews. You'll eventually see these full versions when his album is finished, so if you love metal you likely should just get over to his site, subscribe, and wait in eager anticipation.

Notable track: The Pegasus Way

Morgrayne / Doctor Weiss

Youtube
SoundCloud
Eqbeats
Bandcamp

Location: Rome, Italy
Age: 20

He actually has more pony tracks than what he prepped for the "A Dash of Insanity", including an After Party track. Looking at the pre-brony tracks he has on his Youtube, I have a feeling we'll see some great EDM output from him in the near futur,e as he's had plenty of previous experience before joining the herd.
 

Raging

Youtube

Location: USA
Age:17

Before Cowbell Party, Raging was leading the charge to get more cowbell in brony music. Clearly his influence has paid off for the community and has been felt far and wide. His mix of hilarious trollcore and more serious works in a variety of electronic styles in his first 2 months are a pretty good start.

Notable track: Fluttershy Loves Cats

Chromatic Chaos Pony

Youtube
Soundcloud
Bandcamp

Location: Brandon, Florida, USA
Age: 15

Metal, grimdark, and dubstep is the plan and there's a few scattered tracks completed so far. He just finished a track for Lesser Knowns, and like the CMC, he's still working to find out what he's good at. Stay tuned.

Notable track: Canterlot Security [Dubstep]

Resonantwaves

Youtube
SoundCloud
Bandcamp

Tumblr
Facebook

Location:USA
Age: 20

There's a reason why his Youtube is entitled Ambient Pony Music, it's because that's what he specializes in and does extremely well. Ambient is something lacking in the brony scene, so ResonantWaves really does fit that gap and does an outstanding job with his music. Recommended!

Notable track: Elements in Ruin

Tuner Symphon

Nine months in, Tuner Syphon is plugging away with a load of original pony tracks. He's currently working on several collabs that should becoming out shortly.

RoyalPony

Location: USA
Age: 27

RoyalPony has been making tracks for nearly a year now, and during that time he's accumulated a large collection of mostly hardstyle pony tracks (including original works and remixes). He is an obvious artist to seek out by those who love that genre and haven't heard him quite yet. He also appears to DJ on the side, so props for that as well.

Notable Tracks: Twilightlicious Remix
