DJ AM remembered. The world has lost a true master.

I just re-read the first email AM ever sent me and I really can't believe that we won't see him again. Of all the DJs that we have the great fortune to work with, AM stands out a mile.

For a man with such talent, who had achieved so much, he was incredibly humble.

So true!

Adam was a great musician, a very kind spirit,and a heartwarming man. I will miss him and am so saddened by his passing. This world now has a hole in it where DJ AM used to be. I wish we would have had more time.
Rest in Peace

Met Adam in 2004 ...i was resident at Lucid ( Toronto ) and he was flying in from L.A - this is before he Blew up and started dating Nicole Richie... he was super humble and super talented.. i remember his first record he played that night ' The Cure's "' Close to you " - He absolutely destroyed the club that night and i was scared to close out the night as he had everybody bouncing off the walls.. Man .. he was the real deal...a true party dj- who rocked everything form Guns and Roses , Daft Punk , Oasis to Aerosmith and his mixing was unreal.. OH - this was before we were rocking vinyl.. So much talent... i miss his " Rock With You " Michael Jackson mix that he would ride into the acapella.. Unreal ! A true pioneer.. i hope you found peace Adam..You will be missed .
Serato, Support

A few people have mentioned how humble Adam was and, from my brief experience, that was exactly what I found too.

I met him when he was in New Zealand for Serato X last year. He was friendly, enthusiastic and very down to earth. He also blew me away with his DJ skills.

Adams death is a tragedy and he'll be sorely missed.

Got my name put on the door at the Serato X party here in Auckland (Thanks Onny from 420), and was buzzing at the chance to see AM live. It was unreal how this guy could blend anything and make it sound good. Was'nt going to miss this show for the world so I stood against the wall with my hand up in the air from the start of his set to the very end, in fact its in the air right now! R.I.P DJ AM thank you!

I remember meeting him the first time @Love NYC 2007 for Mark Ronson's Birthday party. He was blown away with the sound system and talking to me about having a party there. Really chill guy.. Such a shame.. RIP

Was recently going thru my old PM's and found a conversation I had with Adam. I never really knew him just spoke to him here on the board a few times. He always seemed humble & willing to help.

We all know his skills on the tables were epic.

He will be sorely missed by both people who knew him well, & people who only knew him thru either his TV show or his DJ skills.

R.I.P. A True Master.
