YouTube musician, Pogo, has ventured into the Upside Down with a twisted track inspired by the hit Netflix series, 'Stranger Things'.

The Australian electronic musician is best known for his unique tracks, which he's been uploading to YouTube since 2007. He's amassed over a quarter of a million video views and is fast approaching one million subscribers.

Pogo's music mostly consists of short samples, quotes and melodies from movies, games and TV, including Disney classics and Harry Potter. His latest track entitled 'Strangerous' uses small audio snippets from the first three seasons of 'Stranger Things', which returns this year for its fourth season, you can find out more about that here.

The South African-born musician made the 80s synth-style remix by piecing together sounds and voices sampled from the supernatural series, including a toy Yoda being slammed on to a desk and chunks of speech from various characters including Mike Wheeler, Lucas Sinclair, Dustin Henderson and Eleven.

The 33-year-old's work often uses nothing more than the audio he samples, adding very few or no additional music or instruments. Pogo's most popular YouTube video with more than 20 million views is 'Alice', which is made of samples of the animated classic 'Alice In Wonderland'.

It's been two and a half years since Netflix brought us any new adventures in Hawkins, Indiana. The third season came to an end with Hopper and Joyce bravely fighting their way into the Russians' secret bunker under Starcourt Mall an an attempt to put an end to the Russians' attempt to re-open the gate to the deadly realm that is the Upside Down.

Just three months after the climatic and tear-jerking finale of season three, the show's creators, the Duffer brothers, confirmed a fourth season was on the way, but soon after the season entered the pre-production phase, it was shutdown due to the pandemic. This caused severe delays to the season's premiere, which is now scheduled for this summer.

It has since be announced that Robert Englund will join the cast. The horror legendary, who starred in the iconic 'Nightmare On Elm Street' movie series, follows in the footsteps of other 80s stars includin, Cary Elwes (Mayor Kline), Sean Astin (Bob), Paul Reiser (Sam Owens), and Matthew Modine (Dr Brenner), who makes a return in season 4.

It's been confirmed that the Freddie Krueger star will be one of a handful of actors joining the show's cast as a recurring new character. Robert will take on the role of Victor Creel, a disturbed killer who's locked up in a psychiatric hospital.

Robert will be joined by actor Jamie Campbell Bower, who will portray a carer working at the psychiatric hospital. Other new regulars include Joseph Quinn, Sherman Augustus, Mason Dye, Nikola Djuricko, and Tom Wlaschiha.
