San Francisco multimedia turntablist Mike Relm and New York based art group Blue Man Group are slated to visit a whopping 62 cities in the coming months, the finale for which will be Relm’s appearance at Coachella.

Though Relm’s approach to making music is difficult to categorize, there is an obvious hip-hop and turntablism influence in it. What sets him apart from the genre is the incorporation of manipulated visuals, which creates “a soundtrack with a film.” His trio is known for utilizing sophisticated lighting, paper, and even paint in their shows. Not to be side-lined as merely an obscure art act, it is worth noting that Relm has performed with the likes of Common and Echo & the Bunnymen, which speaks to the versatility of his work. He is also collaborating on two other projects: a track for the Aqua Teen Hunger Force movie, and the Disney Channel series “Too Many Robots,” in conjunction with Kid Robot.

Mike Relm hits the road February 2, 2007.
