Pogo, also known as Youtube user Fagottron makes incredible remixes using samples from Disney movies, and man are they good. I love every single one of this guy’s works, and I listen to all of them pretty regularly. After his video for “Alice”, seen below, got over 4,000,000 views on Youtube, Disney took notice and actually commissioned him to make remixes using clips from Up and Toy Story. During that time, he pulled all his Disney remixes from Youtube, but now that his one-year contract with them is finished, he’s put them back up again for our enjoyment!
I think Pogo is one seriously smart dude. Just take a look at this quote from him over the controversy surrounding his “Bangarang” remix:
My work serves as free viral marketing to the organisations that own the films I sample from. It’s high time the music industry pulls its head out of its ass, and realises that today’s remix culture is an asset, not a liability. To shoot down the potential here would be utterly illogical.
YES. You’re absolutely right, Pogo. Keep remixing, man, and I’ll keep listening.
Many, many more remixes lie just under the cut!
