“I’m a rapper who’s a brony, not a brony who’s a rapper” is a phrase I use as a motto! I started doing rap music a few years before the community; about a year after the community sprung up, I was converted to the fandom by a close friend of mine and suddenly PONIES. Made Evil Enchantress and got picked up by Y@C, then suddenly a Tombstone, then suddenly an Atomizer; soon after, collabed with Omni and Nowacking on Amplifyre. Now here I am today, extremely thankful for all the friends I’ve made since that day!

Shroo, also known as Mushrooshi, is a visual artist who, one day,
was doodling Vinyl Scratch and, being the technical perfectionist he is,
wanted to draw realistic equipment on Miss Scratch. After settling upon
giving her some SL-1200s and a Xone 92, he inquired, “What position
should the knobs and faders be at?”, watched a few mixing tutorials, and
thus began his journey into DJing. Shroo now mixes tracks live on
Ponyville FM and on BronyRadio, and is beginning his debut into the
convention circuit this year, whipping together a variety of dancey house,
trancy trance, trappity trap, rappity rap, bumpy dubstep, and thumpy
DnB. Shroo also mashes up tracks and has gotten started in producing

Blake Henry began his journey into the wide world of bass-oriented electronic music during the summer of 2011, when he heard Figure’s “The Werewolf” for the very first time. Immediately afterward he began voraciously seeking out and consuming all the dubstep he could find, from the face-melting, brostep antics of party smashers like Helicopter Showdown and Sluggo to the bottomless, soul-crushingly deep vibes of UK henchmen Megalodon and Supreme. After being blessed by the glory of pony, he decided to combine these two interests into a career of pony dubstep DJing and production. Each time he drops the needle on a track you can be guaranteed it’ll be something you’ve never heard before, thanks to his extensive scouring of the net for the most interesting and fresh tracks. As a producer, DJ, and MC, Wootmaster aims to give the pony fandom a deep-bass cleansing of all the Skrillex-wannabes and sound-alikes currently prancing around in the Equestrian music scene, while kicking some pony rhymes to boot. Why contain it?

General Zoi wrote her first computer game in C back in 2002. These days she’s longtime programmer and an amateur game designer. She became inspired to make the Pony Creator after getting into the MLP fandom and realizing how diverse it was. The Pony Creator was an attempt to make a tool with ponies as diverse as the fandom itself, and as a social experiment to see how many OCs would use Vinyl Scratch’s hair (roughly 150% of them!).
