It’s easy to get obsessed with Mike Relm. He’s part DJ, part director, and instead of remixing simple song tracks he remixes every kind of media to create a unique sonic and visual experience. His latest work, remixing the smash film Guardians of the Galaxy into a hella catchy tune, is just another entry in his long ledger of rad projects. Mike has slapped his unique spin on everyone and everything from Amy Schumer to Anchor Man to create some of the must unique jams on YouTube.
