The Loss of a Legend - DJ AM

As your probably know by now Adam Goldstein aka DJ AM left us today. The details are still unknown and to be honest, it doesn't matter. What matters is not how he died, but how he lived and the profound effect he had on all of us. Having seen four times and met him twice, this hurts. He was always there to talk to a fan and greeted me humbly and with respect. He was a class act and a true natural talent that we will all greatly miss.

One of the most fun nights Ive ever took place this past October at Dim Mak's 2year Anniversary of Banana Split Sunday @ LAX. What started out as a regular club party soon turned into something special when Adam and Jessie from MSTKRFT decided to have a little DJ battle (with guest judge Thomas Bangalter) I was able to catch 5minutes of his time after his set and we joked about his Daft Punk stunt at HARD Haunted Mansion and how cool it was to have all the artists from HARD in attendance that night. Damn...its going to be hard to imagine a night out in Hollywood without him

To Honor the man I've included a recording that I was able to track down of that night at LAX and a live mixtape he recorded with drumming partner Travis Barker at Coachella this past Spring. Ive also uploaded some of great videos of him performing to our Videos page. Enjoy

The PALMS hotel in Las Vegas (where AM had a Friday night residency at Rain) has paid tribute in a pretty awesome way.
