Disney, the next EDM king

Walt Disney Records is topping charts with their EDM album Dconstructed.

As part of Disney Music Groups goal to move beyond their animated phenomenon, they released Dconstructed, an EDM album of classic and contemporary Disney songs remixed by a swagger of EDM giants such as Daft Punk and Armin van Buuren.

What a perfect combination, the classic Disney tunes you grew up with, mixed with crazy beats and epic vibes by some of our favourite DJs!

The success of Dconstructed is highly due to the release of Frozen. The soundtrack is nearing it’s 13th week at number one on Billboard 200, selling 2.1 million copies, so far.

This is the first EDM collection from the Disney group, and I can’t wait for more!

All the mixes come with their own trippy video to match, which were released as a celebration of Disney’s achievement in breaking into the EDM category.

The album listing goes as follows:

1. “Circle of Life” (Mat Zo Remix) – Carmen Twillie & Lebo M. The Lion King
