There’s something about a live show you won’t see on TV… You won’t even come close.”
Mike Relm walks the line between performer and director as one of the emerging heroes of the video DJ revolution. Growing up in the Bay area his love of record collecting was a natural lead in to DJing and he soon introduced visuals to his sets. But it wasn’t until the release of the Pioneer DJ DVJ that he began to fuse audio with visual and develop his live set into the spectacular sensory explosion that it is today.
Relm’s adoption of new technology has been a driving factor for his success. His Youtube channel, Relmvision, showcases his visual “remixes”, which mimic the fragmented way in which we experience sound and images in the post-internet landscape. It’s opened new doors for Relm, who can count Jon Favreau, Tony Hawk and Google among his fans. Passionate is not strong enough a work to describe Relm’s approach to his craft, and we’re continuously left guessing as to where he’ll take it next.
