His first contribution to the pony music scene was a remix of Evil Enchantress, first published on YouTube in January 2011, with remixes of most of the other season-one songs soon to follow, all under the label of "Super Ponybeat". While the Evil Enchantress is the earliest dated fan music track about My Little Pony Friendship is Magic on YouTube, Eurobeat Brony stated in an interview with BMD that he thinks perhaps some other musicians may have posted fan music on 4chan prior to its release.
He has also composed a remix of an older My Little Pony Song (Call Upon the Seaponies, from the My Little Pony TV special) and several pieces of music inspired by, but not based on the show, such as theme songs for Luna and Discord, both of which also feature his vocals. Some of the remixes feature vocals as well, though mostly at the beginning and ending of a song.
The remixes are available for streaming on YouTube, where a link to a medium-quality download is usually provided. Higher-quality versions can be downloaded on the Odyssey Music Bandcamp page. Downloads of alternate versions (vocal-free for the songs, for instance) are also frequently available. Since most of the music consists of remixes of songs originally composed by Daniel Ingram, it is free to download, but donations are also accepted. The Bandpuffs channel used to host new remixes.
Eurobeat Brony was mentioned in an online Rolling Stone article about show composer Daniel Ingram, and a remix by The Living Tombstone of his Discord song was embedded as well.
Luna (NIGHTMARE MODE)
|Luna (NIGHTMARE MODE)|
|Published||May 20, 2011|
|Related to||The DREAM MODE version|
Luna is Odyssey's first original song, and one of the oldest original songs from the fandom. The narrator of the song is neither Luna nor Celestia, but another character undergoing a similar ordeal to Luna's banishment to the moon. The song's coda is a symphonic metal segment with growled vocals symbolizing the transformation into Nightmare Moon, which is further embellished by having the growled lyrics be zalgoified in the description. Some fans did not like the growled vocals, prompting the creation of a "DREAM MODE" version where the original coda is excluded. The original song was renamed as the "NIGHTMARE MODE" version. There are also vocal only, instrumental, uncorrected vocal, and nightlife jazz instrumental versions available on his Bandcamp. The song remains one of the most well known songs in the fandom and has inspired countless remixes, such as one by The Living Tombstone and a dubstep remix by DJ AlexS, and covers, such as Forest Rain's Alt Mode and Tarby's Dnb/Metal reinterpretation.
