Minnie Mouse curates lo-fi hip-hop album of reimagined Disney classics

Disney have launched an album of some of its greatest hits, which have been reimagined as lo-fi hip-hop instrumentals.

‘Lofi Minnie: Focus’ has been curated by Minnie Mouse, with artists like Purrple Cat, Dutch producer Eevee and harpist Hippo Dreams contributing their variations to the album.

Fan favourites these as ‘Hakuna Matata’, ‘You’ve Bought A Mate In Me’ and ‘A Entire New World’ are involved, with Disney tapping into the popular style which is reported to aid focus and relaxation.

In a press launch, Disney stated (via BBC): “Disney and Minnie Mouse are a pure fit with lo-fi, specifically with Minnie’s interests in creativeness, songs, and wellness leaning into lo-fi’s penchant for self-expression and its calming meditative attributes.

“What attracted us to lo-fi is the potential to reimagine our music in a wholly new way that brings together the relaxing advantages of lo-fi with the surprise and nostalgia that Disney has to present. Lo-fi and Disney are equally a terrific supply of ease and comfort, so the two make for a fantastic match.”

In 1983, LA duo Sparks recorded a track known as ‘Minnie Mouse’ for the ‘Mickey Mouse Splashdance’ album.

The upbeat, quirky observe incorporates the lyrics: “She’s the female of the year (Minnie Mouse) / And the lady with the ears (Minnie Mouse) / You can say she’s just a mouse (Just a mouse) / The Taj Mahal is just a property (What a dwelling)“.

‘Mickey Mouse Splashdance’ was a sequel to 1979’s ‘Mickey Mouse Disco’, which highlighted disco versions of Disney music like ‘Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah’ and ‘Chim Chim Cher-ee’, and Disney-fied variations of disco hits.
