Music/{{Pogo}}, or Nick Bertke is an electronic music artist who lives in Perth, Australia. He's well known for his work in sampling. These include films, shows, or real life.

His website is [[http://www.pogomix.net/ right here]]. He can also be [[http://www.youtube.com/user/Fagottron found on]] Website/YouTube.


!! Tropes concerning his work:
* [[BannedInChina Banned In the US:]] Not his music, but Pogo himself, due to [[http://www.pogomix.net/forums/threads/relabs-tour-cancellation-announcement.517/ certain events.]] [[HopeSpot However,]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Dn7fyZ9sTo there is a chance for the ban to be lifted.]]
* BerserkButton: Berserk is a bit strong, but please don't send him any requests. It's justified, since he feels he can't do justice to a work that he doesn't resonate with.
* EverythingIsAnInstrument
* ExecutiveMeddling: Currently being essentially held hostage by [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Disney]]- any Disney-related remixes have to be commissioned by them, or they'll sue him. This is the main reason his ''PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' remix, "Swashbuckle", will [[WhatCouldHaveBeen never see the light of day.]]
* ItWillNeverCatchOn: Nick was reluctant to upload his track "Gardyn" to [=YouTube=], since people would find it a little... ''unnerving'' to see him stray away from his original form. However, it gained a lot of praise, and it even became one of the top 25 videos of [=YouTube=] Play 2010.
* LyricalColdOpen: "Expialidocious", "Jiminy", and "What I Likes".
* PrettyBoy: [[http://files.ilictronix.com/images/pogo.jpg The man is attractive.]]
* SelfDeprecation: He has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ItI-hScUHto a video]] where he showcases (and [[DeadpanSnarker mocks]]) tracks he made when he was younger, most of which [[OldShame he doesn't like.]]
* SlasherSmile[=/=]PsychoticSmirk: Does both in the "Wizard of Meh" video. It's kinda reminiscent of Music/AphexTwin.
* WordSaladLyrics: Nearly all of his songs, because the vocals are generally chopped-up samples. "Buzzwing" is a notable example:
--> In my bathtub, in a dark pose
--> Great idea (loserface)
--> Great, I got a dark pose
--> Buzz!
** Also "Mellow Brick Road," which has clearer lyrics than most of his other songs.
** Averted in "What I Likes". The lyrics are very clear despite all of the sampling, and they make complete sense.
* XMeetsY: Music/ToddEdwards meets either Music/{{Nujabes}}, Music/OwlCity, or both.
