Listen: Former Arab Strap Member Aidan Moffat Digs Deep Into The Disney Vaults For A Creepy Mix

Posted by September 28, 2013 Comment

Neverland TransmissionAnything as frequently positive and upbeat as a great deal of Disney’s output is relatively easy to put a spin on and make seem a little creepy.

Some don’t even really need a spin. I’ve, unfortunately (?), never been to Disneyland but everything I’ve seen and heard about It’s a Small World feels me with dread.

This new mix from former Arab Strap member Aidan Moffat digs deep into the Disney vaults and comes out with a somewhat haunting but also occasionally rather pretty mix of music. Some tracks are remixed by Moffat, generally in a way that makes them sound that little bit creepier, but some are included in their original form.

You can stream the entire mix right here – thanks to Dazed Digital – and find the tracklisting for it below that. I do wonder if Disney might object to this mix and try and take it down but Escape From Tomorrow – another creepy spin on Disney properties – is on its way into cinemas soon, so who knows…
