Pocket is the remixer/producer alias for Richard Jankovich, singer and producer for Burnside Project. Since 2005, he has released many "pocket mixes" for artists like Joanna Newsom, Beck, Kristin Hersh, Antony and The Johnsons, Radiohead, Cat Power, Of Montreal and others.


Pocket released his first remix in 2005 to critical blog acclaim.[1] Many of his subsequent remixes have received positive critical reviews from websites such as Stereogum,[2] Pitchfork[3] and Pampelmoose.[4]

In 2007, Pocket's remix for Radiohead's cover of Björk's "Unravel" was nominated for the 2007 Village Voice Pazz and Jop poll by Will Hermes.[5]

In 2009, Pocket began releasing a series of singles featuring guest singers like Robyn Hitchcock, Craig Wedren (Shudder to Think), Steve Kilbey (The Church), Danny Seim (Menomena) and Mark Burgess (The Chameleons). In an interview with Zaptown Magazine, Pocket revealed that the collection of singles was made from a "dream list of all the people he wanted to collaborate with" and that the project took over three years to complete.[6] Each single was released with a B-side and three remixes of the A-side. Remixers included Styrofoam, Justus Köhncke, Mux Mool and G.D. Luxxe. In 2012, these singles were collected on an album, All of This Happened, released on Tirk Records.[7]

Pocket admits the name was bestowed upon him by Brooklyn Vegan when the blog posted his Joanna Newsom "Bridges and Balloons (Pocket Mix)" and referred to him directly as Pocket.[8]
