For those of you that haven’t heard of Pogo, now is the time to listen up. Simply put, Nick Bertke is a 23 year old A/V remix guru. His work consists entirely of samples from various movies and TV shows (primarily from Disney animated films) that are arranged into awesome grooves and set to matching, uniquely glitchy video from the movies.
Since his debut remix of Alice in Wonderland in 2007, Pogo has continued to push the envelope for what can be done with digital sampling. His latest remix is from the Disney/Pixar film, Monsters, Inc.
Pogo has been gaining a ton of recognition for his work, so make sure to keep an eye out for his future releases. Unfortunately, due to passport and visa issues during his 2011 tour, we won’t be seeing Nick around these parts for a while. Until then, it seems we’ll just have to wait for his return one remix at a time. In the meanwhile, check the Fresh Prince remix!
