Daft Punk‘s former manager has condemned Disney for the way the company put together the forthcoming remix album of the duo’s Tron: Legacy soundtrack.
Busy P, who is a DJ and producer and managed the band from 1996 to 2008, posted a statement about the album on his official website, Busyp.coolcats.fr. He wrote that he was “100 percent sure Daft Punk were not involved in this side project.”
The remix album, ‘Tron: Legacy R3CONFIGUR3D’, is due for release on April 4. It features contributions from M83, Boyz Noise and Moby.
Busy P condemned Disney for the company chiefs’ choice of remixers, writing: “A masterpiece like Tron:Legacy soundtrack deserved the best and I am sad to discover the A&R at Disney is apparently buying most of his electronic music in airports stores.”
He also posted a remix by Belgian DJ Goose, which he said was rejected by Disney for the compilation. Listen to it by scrolling down and clicking below.
“This should have been the kind of great re-interpretation of Daft Punk’s music featured on this compilation,” he said of the song.
