remix

If you’ve spent any time on the interwebz you’ve probably run into a few Pogo mixes. Pogo? Yes, Pogo. The brilliant re-mixer, known in the real world as Nick Bertke, is the creator of such gems as: ‘Upular‘ (Pixar Remix), ‘Skynet Symphonic‘ and ‘Murmurs of Middle-Earth‘. What Pogo does sounds simple enough, but by sampling hundreds of different movies and television shows he creates phenomenal bits of music. His latest remix might be his best yet.

This is the video for my track ‘Bloom‘, a patchwork of vocals and musical chords from various Disney films. I recorded the harp sample from ‘Sleeping Beauty’, and a series of chords from ‘A.I: Artificial Intelligence’ to form the base of the chorus. The vocals are sampled from Disney films, each of which are illustrated in this video.

It’s Friday morning, you’re groggy, the coffee still hasn’t kicked in. Tune in, drop out and let ‘Bloom’ take you into the weekend.

For other Pogo remixes check out his Youtube page. Personal favorites of mine are, ‘Alice‘ and ‘Toyz Noize.’

Daft Punk of a Third Kind

Experiencing Daft Punk is like being inside a disco ball of sweaty, primal, helmeted hotness. Thus, it was only a matter of time before someone took the pretty flashing lights and excited faces from that one scene in Close Encounters of the Third Kind and layered some funky, funky Daft Punk beats over it. Take a gander at the very short Daft Punk of a 3rd Kind below:
