Armin van Buuren, Avicii tapped for Disney remix album

“Let It Go,” the soaring showstopper from “Frozen,” has an unlikely remix coming out soon.

The Academy Award-winning smash sung by Idina Menzel got a reworking by Dutch electronic dance music DJ Armin van Buuren.

His remix is just one of more than a dozen that Walt Disney Records commissioned for “Dconstructed,” a compilation album that placed Disney tunes, including several beloved classics, into the hands of EDM stars.


Songs have been pulled from older Disney films, such as “Dumbo,” “The Lion King” and “Toy Story,” and more recent hits, such as “Monsters University” and “The Incredibles.”

The 14-track set will include contributions from Buuren, Avicii, Kaskade, Mat Zo and Unkle.

Disney has so far issued only the track list and a quick Instagram teaser for the album, but it’s clear the house that Mickey Mouse built is ready to rave.

“Circle of Life,” the tear-jerker from “The Lion King,” will get a flip courtesy of Israeli producer-DJ Mat Zo; Kaskade has turned “Baby Mine” from “Dumbo” into a house remix; Randy Newman’s poignant “Toy Story” standout “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” has been mashed into a “hyper” remix from Alfred Montejano; and “The Muppet Show Theme” has gotten a new take courtesy of Shy Kidx.

“Dconstructed” will be released April 22 and is currently available for pre-order through Amazon.
