Pogo - The Planet
It has been a while since I heard from Perth producer Pogo, but I’m always interested in finding out more about his music since there is no DJ who samples quite like him. On his Disney remix series, he would often chop up dialogue into such tiny samples that the vocals were indistinguishable.
He has since gone on to sample everyday life and make music from cities around the world and even from his mother’s gardening (on the track ‘Gardyn’).
This brand new song The Planet sees Pogo continue his offbeat approach to music in using a largely acapella basis with beatboxing and whistling. The track further proves Pogo to be an unconventional artist of many talents who isn’t afraid to go against the grain and create a completely unique sound from the familiar and obscure.
Fishing - Pee Green Bote (live)
Sydney duo Fishing are in the same league as The Avalanches, Pogo and Bibio when it comes to making sunny, instrumental, sample-driven music.
Join them as they perform Pee Green Bote on a boat on the Thames River. If only my fingers could make such amazing music!
The song contains countless samples that Russ & Doug have stored, sequenced and trigger to sound at the push of those Midi player buttons.
According to a recent interview with BIRP! their debut album will be released sometime in 2012.

Pogo - Joburg Jam
Pogo = Nick from Perth Western Australia. He is in his early 20s and has earned a reputation as being “that guy who remixes samples from Disney movies.” He has a knack for taking some of the shortest conceivable snippets from samples of sound, whether it being from a film, or in this case, everyday sounds, and turning them in to incredible music. As you have probably figured this out by now, all the samples in this song and the footage was taken in Johannesburg, South Africa. Check out Pogo’s Youtube channel for more. On another note, I noticed that I have the same t-shirt as the guy playing the bongos at 2:01. Awesome.
