In a move that seems somewhat out of step with its wholesome, family-friendly values, Disney has unexpectedly hopped on the EDM bandwagon with the announcement of a remix compilation pairing superstar producers with classic Disney songs.
Among those tasked with adding the womp-womp to songs from The Lion King, Toy Story, Dumbo and more are Avicii, Armin Van Buuren, Kaskade and BT. There’s also a surprise appearance from UNKLE, aka James Lavelle’s rather more low-key electronic production outfit.
Dconstructed will be released by Walt Disney Records on April 22.
The announcement came via Instagram with a trailer previewing some suitably heavyweight beats – enjoy it below, and see the tracklist underneath.
