From his website:

DJ AM is the Entertainment Industry’s premier DJ, his name is synonymous with what’s happening in both music and pop culture in Los Angeles, New York, Las Vegas & Miami. Today’s most in demand DJ as well as a fixture in the night life scene, DJ AM currently has residencies at PURE in Las Vegas on Friday nights and at LAX on Sunday nights (a club he co-owns). His schedule has him traveling the world over to play special engagements in clubs, private parties and corporate events. It’s a guarantee that no matter what club he is in A- listers and hipsters alike are dancing on the banquets to his beats.

Before he became a full-time DJ, AM was already a fixture in the music world. He was a member of the rock group Crazytown who’s song “Butterfly” off the Platinum album: “The Gift of the Game” went straight to number 1 on the top 40 charts in April of 2001. He is in demand by everyone in the music business from A to Z and his work has appeared on albums for Madonna, Will Smith, Babyface, Powerman 5000, Bubba Sparxx, Nikki Costa and Papa Roach to name a few. He currently has a record deal with Interscope.

Most recently, DJ AM has partnered with Travis Barker (Blink 182) to perform a live DJing/drumming set, something that has never been done before. TRVSDJAM perform about once a month at sponsored events, clubs and concerts. There act is truly incredible, mixing live drum beats to scratched records, they perform side by side – they have done corporate parties (T-Mobile/Sidekick, Heineken, Bacardi) as well as club dates in Vegas, and performed at 2007 New Years Eve in Miami, this years Winter Music Conference as well as last summers KROQ’s Inland Invasion concert. Their last gig was for DJ AM’s birthday party in Las Vegas at PURE.

Singer Melissa Etheridge introduced the best-kept secret to the masses when she hired AM to DJ her 40th Birthday party in 2001. He then became the most in demand DJ for Hollywood A-Listers. This in turn led to DJ AM being the most popular and in demand DJ of current times, with brands and corporate sponsors out bidding one another to have him at their parties and events.

DJ AM has evolved into a prominent brand. He is a partner in a DJing company, and the music director for the website doppelganger.com He is so popular with the hipsters that T-Mobile/sidekick created a limited edition sidekick featuring him and the art work of tattoo artist Mr. Cartoon.

You know a party is hot; high profile and happening if AM is the DJ. A-Listers show up to events not to be seen but to hear AM spin and tear up the dance floor to his records of choice. AM feels a crowd and gives them what they want, whether its mixing hip hop with rock or 80’s with tunes from (The Notorious B.I.G., Guns & Roses, Prince, Beyonce & Led Zeppelin) the crowd will have a good time and leave wanting more.

One of the best genre skipping DJs to have ever lived, DJ AM aka Adam Goldstein, will be greatly missed by the DJ community, clubgoers everywhere who were priveleged enough to see him spin just once, and the music community worldwide. Goldstein's body was found dead in his New York apartment at 5:20pm EST today, August 28, 2009. There was drug paraphenilia in the apartment, no sign of foul play, and as of this writing, it is a suspected suicide.       His last …
