Electronic // By AJ / 23 June, 2012
I love when existing sounds are re-purposed into music (if my love of The Avalanches and Wax Tailor is any indication), but it’s a tricky thing to get right. Pogo nails it, and goes one step further by using samples from stuff that isn’t even music to begin with, including this track created from the Steven Spielberg film, Hook (a completely underrated film).
The lovely thing about Bangarang and some of Pogo’s other tunes is that they’re wonderfully sentimental, and being as how the subject matter is a kids/family film, it gives a rather warm and fuzzy feeling to the proceedings. A lot of fun, and I bet if you haven’t seen Hook in a while, you’ll want to go see it after this!
