When I think about the popular movie Pirates of The Caribbean, naturally the suspenseful-sounding theme song starts to play in my head. In honor of the new movie, Pirates of The Caribbean: Deadmen Tell No Tales, coming out, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike created an electronic remix to the soundtrack.
Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, who in the last year alone have had two No.1 hits on Billboard’s Dance Club Songs Chart, have created Hans Zimmer vs. Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike “He’s A Pirate,” which is the sole bonus track on the upcoming digital version of the soundtrack for the movie series, which released today on Walt Disney Records.
The track is a re-record of Zimmer’s theme that is ubiquitous in all the Pirates films, and gives the track a DVLM edge that can bring it right onto dancefloors worldwide. Disney executives, who had previously worked with DVLM when Dimitri voiced the character of Fred in Big Hero Six, came to them with the idea for the track.
“He’s A Pirate” gives the iconic theme a big room upgrade, with a pounding beat and fierce synths, while keeping Zimmer’s vision intact. Vegas revealed to Variety that they wanted to “respect the original” and “wanted to keep the vibe and the atmosphere, but give it a touch of today.”
