Let's not intellectualise this one too much: Nick Bertke is God. Or, at the very least for that 7-year-old child inside of you, he's some form of Santa Claus. A magical, magical Kris Kringle that takes something already pretty amazing (Disney and Steven Spielberg) and turns it into music that Robin Williams would've appreciated during his mid-90s cocaine "binge". Possibly with the accompaniment of a smoke machine. 

Hailing from the sunny city of Perth, our man Mr. Bertke is many things: a producer, a remix artist called Pogomix, a keen YouTuber, and a magician of dreams. As part of this feat, Bertke rehashes audio from imagination-friendly films and TV shows and turns them into modern day dance tracks. Standouts so far include A Little Princess, Harry Potter, Cinderella, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, and The Wizard of Oz. Arguably, his masterpiece is Spielberg's Hook, if only for the loop track of Dustin Hoffman's moustache twitching. 

We could get technical on how Bertke turns movies into music, but it involves lots of stuff we don't understand that much, like "sine wave bass", "loop tracks", and other technical terms that probably involve a significant amount of button pressing. Classical instrumental backing is also involved to take some things to the next level, however, for tracks like Hook's 'Bangarang', what you hear is overwhelmingly sampled straight off the film.

Here's some of his best work below, many of which you'll detect have an underlying dubstep vibe in true reflection of Nick's West Australian roots. And, if Disney Princesses somehow don't do it for you (who are you and what are you doing with an intact soul?), then we also hear he's currently remixing Pulp Fiction, i.e. that 7-year-old child just lost its innocence to Quentin Tarantino.
