Poni started like this, with an idea of launching a netlabel through a compilation featuring the distinct artists we like and believe in. However, while requesting songs and chatting with our friends and artists, we ended up having more scheduled releases than confirmed songs for the compilation, therefore, it wasn't until this year that we were able to officially release this delayed compilation. And we're glad this happened. It was all for the best. We had more time to meet and find great artists.
Ride Your Poni is the first volume of this series that will be released once a year. We're very much honored to feature all of these top-notch artists since our very first edition, most of them are not from Mexico, heck, they're not even from America. Ride Your Poni includes artists from Sweden, Norway, Netherlands, Spain, Canada, USA, Venezuela, and Mexico. We admire them all and consider them our own favorite bands and projects. This is why we decided to show them to you in one single piece.
Spread the Poni among your crowd, it's a great compilation to listen to while driving back home from one of those rough and lonely days or knock-out parties. It's rocky, it's folky, yet ambienty, definitely a wild pony. A long journey of acoustic and electronic pop music, happy but subtle, confused and sad, just like our days at the Poni Republic.
