I’m not jumping on the RIP bandwagon every time someone public bites the dust. But this one.. This fella’s sudden death really touched me. Adam Goldstein was one of the very few A-list DJs who lived up to their status by being truly skilled and soulful, and bringin’ a genuine style to the decks. Nicole Ritchie this, Hollywood that, but Adam was not just a bubble. No dues left unpaid. He intensely influenced an entire generation of DJs, including myself, and he opened many doors for all of us by using his massive outreach to perform musical education in this cold and shady business. He’ll be remembered as a true legend by every halfway decent DJ out there.
