(May 19, 2015 – Los Angeles, CA) – Lakeshore Records and Hasbro, Inc. are releasing the forthcoming DJ PON3 PRESENTS MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC 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.
One of the first people to be considered for this project was DJ Shortee who is considered by many to be a rare breed of technical diversity and musical prowess, making her one of the most sought after DJs worldwide. Her counterpart, Faust, is also a force to be reckoned with having attracted licensing features with MTV, NBC, CNN, the X-GAMES and ESPN. Together the pair’s turntable knowledge and on-stage chemistry enables them to get listeners lost in the music by blending different elements magically together to take you on a bumping journey.
