Disney goes EDM with new remix album, ruins your childhood

    Proving that EDM is bigger (and scarier?) than ever, Disney is jumping on the dance bandwagon with a new remix album. Walt Disney Records recently announced the release of DCONSTRUCTED, a 14-track collection featuring big-name EDM acts reworking classic Disney tunes. I guess after working on film scores with Skrillex and Daft Punk, this was probably inevitable.

    Among the songs getting the remodel are Lion King’s “Circle of Life” courtesy of Mat ZoFrozen’s Oscar-winning original song “Let it Go” by Armin van Buuren, and Daft Punk’s Tron: Legacy cut “Derezzed” once again tackled by Avicii with help from Negin. Other artists involved include Kaskade, U.N.K.L.E., and Japanese Popstars. Personally, not having someone remix “Never Had a Friend Like Me” just seems like a missed opportunity.

    Due out April 22nd, DCONSTRUCTED is currently available for CD pre-order, with digital downloads expected upon release. Below, watch an album teaser Disney Music posted on Instagram, followed by the full tracklist.
