#WildCardWednesday: Disney’s The Lion King – ‘Circle Of Life (Mat Zo Remix)’

The Lion King Banner

The Lion King has surely got to be one of the most notable films Disney has ever released!

Although it was released back in 1994, it is memorable for its incredible soundtrack, featuring the writing talents of Elton John and Tim Rice, as well as its epically emotional scenes, when Mufasa is killed by Scar and its comedic scenes featuring the dynamic duo, Timon and Pumbaa!

Timon and Pumbaa were such a hit with audiences, that they went on to have their own spin-off series and the film went on to have two sequels.

This particular song, ‘Circle Of Life (Mat Zo Remix)’, has been chosen because of its interesting remix elements! Mat Zo is a Grammy-nominated producer and DJ from Britain and he’s done an excellent job of remixing this classic Disney song. He has combined elements of the original song with dubstep/drum & bass qualities. The video is pretty trippy and cool too!

What do you think of this intriguing remix? A fan or not? Got any other interesting tracks for our Disney-themed #WildCardWednesday? Please spread the love by sharing the link to this post.

#WildCardWednesday: Master Shortie – ‘Dead End’

Master Shortie Banner

This week I’ve chosen Master Shortie as the #WildCardWednesday track. Master Shortie (born Theo Jerome Kerlin) is a London-based rapper who attended BRIT School until the age of 14 and at one time played Simba in the West-End production of Disney’s The Lion King.

This particular song, Dead End, was taken from his debut album, A.D.H.D. which was released back in 2009 and features (uncredited) vocals from none other than Labrinth (Timothy McKenzie). It has a very clear funk rhythm to it with its prominent guitar riff and then Labrinth’s distinct vocals in the chorus.

There were a couple of videos made for this song; the one I’ve chosen is the one which features Labrinth, which you can see below.

What do you think of this track? You feeling the funk as a mid-week pick-me-up? What’s your #WildCardWednesday track of choice?
