"Rainbow & Rooted" (Circuitfry + TripDiam + Datsmore)
Rainbow & Rooted is the next installment of the highly acclaimed pony music album series previously known as "Balloon Party." Following up the success of 100% No Feeble Cheering comes Four's Fall Down, an album with a new focus towards drum and bass and hip hop, following the mentality of going fast and radical. The individual group members themselves (Circuitfry, TripDiam, and Datsmore) are the most heavily equipped electronic performance group, utilizing not only controllers but fog machines, lights, and potentially DMXing, as well. They aim to be the highlight of the night of pony.
