POGO: VJ and Producer

Allow me to introduce you to POGO (aka Faggottron).  I think I’m in love.

POGO, or Nick Bertke, has been remixing, merging, blending, and morphing his favorite videos and layering fresh beats on top of them since 2007.  His videos have garnered over 20 million views, even attracting the attention of big movie studios.  Ever heard of Pixar? Well, Mr. Bertke took part in a project hosted by everybody’s favorite animation studio to produce a track for the film Up.  The track, “Upular,  has nearly six million YouTube views.

Bertke has gone on to create videos using clips from Mary PoppinsSnow White and the Seven Dwarfs, HookWilly Wonka & the Chocolate FactoryTerminator 2: Judgment Day and The Lord of the Rings. He also has some original works.

Every instrument is created and enhanced from existing sounds.  Using the previous example, Up, Bertke loops back many of the characters’ dialogue to form verses and a chorus.  It’s something you have to watch.  His precise video and intricate choice of beats all culminate together to form a unique experience.

All of the videos can be found here and there are MP3s available on his website. Due to copyright restrictions, some of the tracks are available at “your own price.” What are you waiting for? Go watch the videos already!
