Maybe you heard about this “Youtube sensation”. Pogo is an australian producer who uses micro samples from movies, video-games, and other noise sources to make music. His most famous video is this one, where he takes a few Disney movies to build the song.

He is one of the rare well-known producers who use the micro-sampling technic. The interesting aspect of this technic is that you don’t have to play any instrument, either real or virtual. Even any hi-hat sound is taken from a sample.
His succes is also due to the fact that his tracks are matching the movie snippets that correspond to the sound, so you can easily recognize which sound goes with which image, and it’s pretty impressive.
