Nick Bertke, aka Pogo, is a music producer/re-mixer from Perth, Western Australia on a mission to remix the world.
Joburg Jam, filmed around Johannesburg, South Africa, is a delightfully uplifting song and his first in a series of cultural remixes from around the world.
The goal of my project is to travel the world capturing sights, sounds, voices and chords, and use them to compose and shoot a track and video for each major culture of the world. It will be funded solely by you the listener, and will be released worldwide on CD, DVD, and on my website PogoMix.net. I am deeply inspired by the films Baraka and Koyaanisqatsi, and hope to produce the best cinematography and music I humanely can throughout each project.
The successful funding of his Kickstarter campaign has allowed him to start on the second track, Tibet. Nick has just returned from Bhutan after spending most of May there and we’ll hopefully get to hear and see the new track soon!
Update: Here’s his mix from Bhutan!
