Disney Hires Avicii and Kaskade to EDM-icize Classic Movie Songs
'Toy Story,' 'Lion King,' 'Sleeping Beauty,' ... none of your childhood memories are safe
When you wub upon a star, your EDM dreams come true.
Underdog label Walt Disney Records has announced that it’s entering the dance music game with a new compilation featuring EDM remixes of songs from Disney movies. Dubbed DCONSTRUCTED, the 14-track set will arrive on April 22 (a whole 21 days past a release date that would make a lot more sense) complete with contributions from Avicii, Armin Van Buuren, Kaskade, U.N.K.L.E., and more.
Yes, soon enough, fans will be waiting for the drop in Mat Zo’s “Circle of Life” and finding comfort in the Alfred Montejano Hyper Remix of “You’ve Got a Friend in Me.” Also on-deck for an EDM makeover? “Let It Go,” the Oscar-winning, chart-topping pop behemoth from last year’s Frozen; two tracks from Daft Punk’s Tron: Legacy score; “The Muppet Show Theme”; and Sleeping Beauty’s “Once Upon a Dream,” which was recently covered by Lana Del Rey for Maleficent.
