Over the last few years, there are a few Disney movies who have embraced the talent of several dance music artists - but now Disney is taking it one step further with a new remix compilation album.
Those who grew up watching movies like The Lion King and Sleeping Beauty probably would have never dreamed of hearing "The Circle of Life" or "Once Upon a Dream" turned into songs that could be heard at a dance music festival or club, but now, all grown up - they just might!
Disney Records has announced a comprehensive compilation - DCONSTRUCTED - of both classic Disney tunes, as well as some new ones, remixed by a few of today's biggest dance music superstars. Included on the remix compilation is a "Circle of Life" remix from Mat Zo, Kaskade's remix of "Baby Mine" from Dumbo, a TRON: Legacy remix from Avicii, and Armin van Buuren's remix of the Oscar-winning song "Let It Go" from Frozen. (See full track list below)
Armin says in a press release, "I feel incredibly honored to have remixed an Oscar-winning song - though I didn’t know that yet when I started."
Avicii adds, "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."
DCONSTRUCTED will be released April 22nd wherever music is sold.
