Pogo is an emerging 21-year old electronic music artist in Perth, Western Australia. He is known for his work recording small sounds from single films or scenes, and sequencing them to form new pieces of music. Often described as ‘Dream Pop’, and ‘Trip House’, Pogo’s music and videos have attracted a large and devoted following that continues to grow every day.
His most notable track, Alice, a composition of sounds from the Disney film ‘Alice In Wonderland’, was received with much success gaining 3 million views on YouTube as of July 2009. Pogo has since produced tracks using films like ‘Mary Poppins’, ‘Harry Potter’, ‘The Sword In The Stone’, ‘Hook’, and ‘Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory’.


Video for Pogo’s track ‘Upular’, composed using chords, bass notes and vocal samples from the Disney Pixar film ‘Up’. The track also features a small number of percussion samples, including an obvious kick drum, crash cymbals and hi-hats.
‘Upular’ marks the first ever Pogo mix of a Pixar film. The closing advertisements have created much debate of whether or not Pogo has been endorsed for his work. The release of ‘Upular’ also marked the unsettling deactivation of ‘Alice’, ‘Expialdicious’ and ‘White Magic’. We expect an official statement from Pogo explaining these events in the near future.
