DJ AM, née Adam Goldstein, was found dead this weekend in his Manhattan apartment. While the details surrounding his untimely death are still unknown, his legacy undeniably won over millions of fans, impressed his predecessors, and inspired both the turntablist and the mix DJ. This interview from our friends at Schitz Popinov only confirms what I heard from everyone who ever opened for him: that Adam was one of the friendliest, most humble dudes in the game. On behalf of the editorial staff at Gotta Dance Dirty™, our hearts go out to his friends and family.
My apologies for the low quality; I searched far and wide for a better bitrate to no avail.
For those of you lucky enough to catch him at this year’s Electric Daisy Carnival, this is my favorite track from his set.
