Disney and EDM have found each other in what we will now dub: “DDM” or “Disney Dance Music.”
Walt Disney Records is releasing remixes of Disney songs with a new compilation album entitled, DCONSTRUCTED on April 22. EDM superstars such as Avicii, Armin van Buuren, Kaskade, and more will be reimagining songs from classics such The Lion King and Dumbo to more current movies such as recent box-office hit, Frozen, and Tron: Legacy. Overall, 14 movies will be featured.
Not only will fans be satisfied with this album but the DJ-producers are really excited as well. “I feel incredibly honored to have remixed an Oscar-winning song—though I didn't know that yet when I started,” says Armin van Buuren on the topic of remixing Idina Menzel’s newly found hit from Frozen.
“My first remix of Daft Punk’s TRON:Legacy was so long ago, but it was a significant moment of recognition in my career,” says Avicii. “It’s great to be a part of it again, to refresh the track, and to let everyone hear Negin’s voice.”
These remixes of these timeless classics will help Disney’s music live in the present day and appeal to all ages without be considered too much of a throwback. Hardcore EDM fans will find no shame in jamming out to these tracks.
