DJ AM was one of my favorite DJ’s before his passing in 2009. He would have been 44 this year. Only had one opportunity to see the man play live and it was here in Austin, Texas a year before his passing. Was an amazing show with him, A-Trak and Major Lazer. DJ AM stole the show. He was booked to play in Austin at a festival sometime after that and I remember I weaseled my way into being the guy to pick him up at the airport, drive him around, take him to the festival and take him back to his hotel. After hearing that news I was pretty excited for weeks. Sometime later I was out DJ’ing a Summer Pool Party in San Marcos and the promoter text me saying he has passed away. It was unreal. Didn’t know what to say or do. He truly was the man I looked up to the most as a DJ.
I still have an external hard drive full of pics, edits, music, files of the late DJ AM so I figured why not put some of my favorites together in one post and put it out there on the mans birthday. Let the world know what great talent the man had. He died a Legend. RIP.

DJ AM – Power 106 Mix
This is a pretty legendary mix. It’s taken from The Power 106 – 12 Day of Mixmas set from 2005. I remember getting this set in parts so its nice to get the full 1 hour and 30 minute mix all together as one download. And once again I thank DJ Kevin Scott for putting out these DJ AM mixes. I’m really glad we have these mixes to remind us what a terrible loss we all experienced in the DJ world when he passed away.

I picked up this edit the day it was released. Every once in a while I will throw it in the beginning of my sets and just let it play. Still love it.

DJ Melo D – A Tribute to AM
“In LA we usually DJ 4 hour sets„ 10pm till 2am (close) and I used to get to work at 9:45pm to set up, then basically practice the 1st hour while people were walking in. Well, at 10:15 I’d get the “PLAY BEYONCE CRAZY IN LOVE” and I’d say “Its 10:15, you will hear it later I promise” and of course the girl would frown (thinking its cute and i will fall for it) and I’d just go back to practicing. 10:30 she would walk by and look at me raising her eyebrows. 11pm she sends 2 of her friends up to ask for the same song shile she watchs to see my reaction (cause of course her ego let her think i was saying no to HER specifically) and I just look at the 1st girl and say “I told your friend, i will play it later” This is the reason I used to carry weak ass promo frisbee records in the back of my crate. Cause come 11:15pm when the 1st girl comes BACK (now with a few drinks in her) demanding I play it. I reach in the back of my crate, pull out a frisbee record and say “You want Beyonce??? Huh?? YOU REALLY WANT IT?? (pull out frisbee 12” and SMASH it over my kneee and hand her the 2 pieces) HERE MOFO, TAKE BEYONCE” they never come back. I have my man man Mike B to thank for this drunkgirl jukeing strategy.” – DJ AM
