Kaskade, Avicii, Armin Van Buuren to Release EDM Remixes of Disney Songs
Perfect Disney pairings: Aladdin and Jasmine, Simba and Nala. How about Armin van Buuren and Frozen's Elsa? Or maybe Kaskade and Dumbo?
Walt Disney Records announced Tuesday that an upcoming album will give a new spin to 14 of their films' most memorable songs. Dconstructed, currently set for an April 22 release, boasts music from or inspired by The Lion King, The Incredibles, The Muppets and Sleeping Beauty, as well as Mickey Mouse cartoons.
Also getting a refresher are two of Daft Punk's Tron: Legacy tracks and the Sebastian Ingrosso/Axwell collaboration for Monsters University, as well as the theme parks' Main Street Electrical Parade music.
Those adding some electro-infused magic include Avicii, Mat Zo, BT, U.N.K.L.E., The Japanese Popstars, Au5, Negin, Shinichi Osawa, ShyKidx and more.
"I feel incredibly honored to have remixed an Oscar-winning song -- though I didn't know that yet when I started," said Van Buuren in a statement on his version of "Let It Go," while Avicii commented, "My first remix of Daft Punk's TRON: Legacy was so long ago, but it was a significant moment of recognition in my career. It's great to be a part of it again, to refresh the track, and to let everyone hear Negin's voice."
