The only thing that Disney and dance music have in common is their ability inject the strongest dose of pure, unadulterated joy into even the most cynical of people. That was their only similarity– until now. House/hip-hop extraordinaire Douster has chopped up the Lion King’s opening anthem, “Circle of Life”, and fitted it with some heavy bass and spiraling synths. Its lighthearted touch raises shouts of “Sim-Ba! Sim-Ba!” rather than the dark and brewing “Scar!” chant that so much dirty electro embraces nowadays. Equal parts nostalgic love and electro fury, “King of Africa” is the 21st century answer to an old school classic.
