Lakeshore Records and Hasbro, Inc. are releasing the forthcoming DJ PON3: MLP Remixed digitally and on CD June 23, 2015. Daniel Ingram's beloved original songs are remixed by some of the top talent on the scene, including Faust & Shortee, Arkasia, Rubicon 7, Heavygrinder and more. The album was produced by Justin Lassen, who worked with all of the artists for the recording.
"The My Little Pony brand has taught fans of all ages about the power of friendship for more than 30 years through socially relevant messages of acceptance and kindness," said Samantha Lomow, Senior Vice President of Hasbro Brands. "We have seen the power of storytelling through music and lyrics in the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic animated series, and we are thrilled to bring our fans a whole new way to enjoy some of their favorite songs, curated by our most beloved musical pony, DJ Pon3."
Talented artists from all over the world came together under the direction of Justin Lassen to put their spin on the beloved sounds fans know and love from the beloved animated series. The power of the music from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic has started to resonate in the dance and EDM scene, so artists including Feint, Buddygirrl, Hollidayrain, Daisy O'Dell, I Am Orange, Acid Paradox and others signed up to work their magic.
"This was a special project to me, I took great care in representing the characters of the show and the genres of music we wanted to cover," said Lassen. "I wanted to give something special back to the amazingly supportive My Little Pony community, something that would excite longtime fans and perhaps create new ones."
The animated series My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, produced by Hasbro Studios and currently airing on the Discovery Family channel in the U.S., follows a colorful cast of pony friends as they embark on a journey of friendship, learning what it means to be a good friend and understanding what makes each person unique and special.
