Disney invites Mat Zo, Avicii, Armin van Buuren, Kaskade and more to remix classics for upcoming ‘DConstructed’ album
It is no coincidence that children of the 90’s grew up on the same timeline as Andy (and Woody and Buzz) in Toy Story: Kids of the Tamagotchi era watched he and his toys go from wide-eyed kids to young adults, ready to head out into the real world. Just when you thought Disney struck your heart at the core with the fiery climactic scene from Toy Story 3, Disney finds a way to bridge the gap between classic nostalgia and electronic mayhem. In a harmonious joining of two separate worlds, the iconic company has announced their latest project ‘DConstructed,’ an album that invites a slew of respected dance music artists to rework celebrated Disney hits.
Mat Zo has revealed his role as remixer for “Circle of Life” from The Lion King which will release as part of DConstructed on April 22nd. The BT & Au5 collaboration will likely be “Partysaurus Overflow,” a track that was featured in a Pixar short titled Partysaurus Rex, the third installment in Disney’s ‘Toy Story Toons’ series which was also released in tandem with Finding Nemo 3D in 2012.
Will Kaskade take on “A Whole New World”? Or will Armin van Buuren put his twist on “Under the Sea”? As for the rest of the artists and timeless Disney tunes, anticipating fans will have to stay tuned for further previews and announcements for DConstructed.
DConstructed has released the track list that includes a heavy hand of never-before-heard remixes of more modern classics like “Roar” from Monsters University, the recent Grammy-winning “Let It Go” to be reworked by Armin van Buuren, and several tracks from Daft Punk’s TRON: Legacy soundtrack.
