As you know by now, by following other news sites that shill for master Hasbro much harder than we could ever hope to, Daniel Ingram released an official EDM album full of MLP remixes. http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/danielingram earlier today. What you may NOT know, is who the fuck any of the "artists" on that album actually are. And you're not alone, as many of them, as we've found, are virtual nobodies!
Let's take a look through the tracklist.
Uhhhh....not ringing any bells? That's because half of the artists have even fewer followers than we do.
Here have some links to educate yourselves.
This is the artist that supposedly being credited as "Angel Bunny"
https://soundcloud.com/volantmusic - 9 tracks on Soundcloud
https://twitter.com/VolantMusic - 3553 Followers
Volant is apparently working with Monstercat, so that's cool.
https://twitter.com/Buddygirrl - 1212 followers
https://soundcloud.com/buddygirrl - 22 Tracks
"buddygirrl" or rather, "The Artist Formerly Known as Buddygirrl"

Hollidayrain, a producer from Denver Colorado is a bit of an enigma, having a very limited social media presence (his last post on facebook was in August of Last Year), and despite this has provided 2 songs for this album. His entire discography is apparently available for download here.
Here's his studio.
Daisy O'dell is...this chick?
She has 500 Soundcloud followers and does some more traditional DJing with old rock songs. How she ended up on Pony we have no idea.
Feint, very probably one of the bigger stars on the entire album (he's actually Facebook Verified!) is another Monstercat producer, with over 44 Thousand Soundcloud subscribers and 164 Thousand Youtube Subscribers. As you probably noticed by his name, he's very Drum and Bass heavy, and hails from the UK.
Somebody find out how they GOT this guy on this album.
Oh. Big buckets of money.
Faust and Shortee, another pair of producers with an identity crisis, as neither one of them is actually Lauren Faust. We now ignore everything else about them.
HeavygrinderSomeone I guess we're supposed to know who they are, but simply don't. They have over 78 Thousand twitter followers and tens of thousands of soundcloud plays. They are part of the "\m/etal electro movement" whatever the hell that means, we assume it has something to do with their leather furry bondage gear.
Here's a fun thing: THEY ACTUALLY HAVE A MYSPACE PAGE!
A man WITHOUT an identity crisis, as he's very concise about who he is.
He is orange. And he does Detroit Dubstep and House music.
He has less than 900 soundcloud followers, but hey, he's from our home turf. So props to him for that.
He definitely defines the "literally who" of this album however.
Acid Paradox. 159 Twitter followers. 18 Soundcloud tracks.
His last Youtube video got 260 views.
We have no fucking idea how he's on this album.
Rubicon7 we've decided to just use their own self-description on their soundcloud.
Rob at UPG ARTISTS
R7 is one of the fastest-rising electro house production and EDM duos in the United States today with a weekly residency on Digitally Imported Radio plus live performances in 2013-14 with Paradiso Festival, BT, Tiesto, Tommy Trash, Quintino, and Treefort Music Fest."
One of those names sounded familiar, as being important about a decade and a half ago. We in no way encourage you to prank call the phone number they leave listed everywhere.
Justin Lassen. "Dark classical composer, remixer and producer. brightly singing to your darkest dreams."
514 twitter followers.
318 Soundcloud subscribers.
Congrats on the big break I guess Justin?
According to Music Times, Justin Lassen is actually the real producer of this album and it took over 2 years to coordinate, which makes us wonder what Daniel Ingram actually had to do with it.
Lassen actually IS a brony based on what we read here.
Last but not least "Arkasia Concept"
A French kid from Paris who uses a pre-aborted fetus as a logo. He's a wubstepper on the same label as the fake Faust. 2700 twitter followers, another "how in the fuck" entry on this roster of DJs.
So now you know who's music you're going to shell out 10 dollars for (if you don't pirate it off of the link on the youtube video).
YOU WOULDN'T DOWNLOAD A PONY
We have no idea how any of these people got involved in the production of an official My Little Pony remix album.
All that aside, tell us what you think of the music itself.
