DJ AM Live Recording from Enclave Chicago. Feb 16, 2008

I was privileged enough to have opened for DJ AM anytime he played in Chicago. Our company at the time, OutFit Events, had a partnership with his DJ label, Deckstar, that brought him to Chicago through us almost monthly. I got to open up for him everywhere from Reserve to Climax, Crescendo, and then Enclave which is where I recorded this mix.

Getting to share a DJ booth with him and getting to watch him up close regularly was an experience too surreal to put into words.

I have held onto this mix and a few others out of respect. I asked his dear friend DJ Kevin Scott for his permission to release this on the 4th anniversary of his passing. If you haven’t already checked them out, Kevin has several other exclusive DJ AM recordings on his soundcloud located here – www.soundcloud.com/djkevinscott

R.I.P. to the greatest ever, Adam Goldstein, DJ AM.
