It is time for another exciting installment of
As you all know, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is on its final season right now. That means after this season, Generation 4 will be a legacy generation of MLP animation, joining the adventurous Generation 1, the somewhat forgettable Generation 2, the wholesome Generation 3, and the popularly-disliked Generation 3.5.
But until then, those generations are the ones that are oldschool, and we at Pinkamena Party are all about oldschool. Oldschool rave, techno, gabber, breakbeat hardcore…
And that brings us to the theme.
Pinkamena Party 7 is:
PONYDOME VII: INJECTED WITH PONY
This theme is twofold:
- A concentration on oldschool genres of hard music and their sounds, especially oldschool rave and gabber.
- A concentration on previous generations of MLP (G1-G3.5) instead of G4.
We are asking you to have AT LEAST ONE of these elements in anything you submit. So, possible submissions could include (in order of how ideal it is, descending):
- An oldschool-sounding gabber track about Butterscotch (G1)
- A more modern hardcore track with rave stabs about the G3 version of Cheerilee
- Cool breakcore that isn’t that oldschool sounding that samples G2 TV ads or has original lyrics about 90s horses
- A track that sounds like it’s straight out of 1992 but it isn’t really about G1-G3.5 that much
The album title and design is a parody of Thunderdome VII’s compilation art:
Thunderdome is a long-running Dutch gabber event series, being arguably the most important long-running festival for hardcore in existence.
Yes that’s right, we’re combining Thunderdome with this:
Generation 1 (sorry for links and not embeds, but youtube bbcode embeds are broken forever it seems)
Generation 2 (there was never a G2 show or movies)
Generation 3 (yeah yeah we already messed with this in R&V but we’re going in deep this time)
Generation 3.5 (ok wait this looks way better than its reputation watching this now)
If you or someone you know can draw stuff that looks like Thunderdome art (or has other ideas), let us know!
Genres accepted include but are not limited to:
- oldschool rave
- hard techno
- happy hardcore
- breakbeat hardcore
- other hard genres (including rock genres, but try to keep it relevant to the theme!)
