This edition of Dancing Astronaut’s daily Good Morning Mix memorializes the life of Adam Michael Goldstein, better known as the iconic DJ AM. It has been nine years since Goldstein’s untimely passing, though his ubiquity and influence are still felt across electronic music today.
There is no better way for fans to celebrate Goldstein’s legacy than by reliving on of his many notable mixes, and perhaps one of his most memorable — the unforgettable Power 106 FM mix. Clocking in at just over an hour in length, the mix works through throwback tracks from JAY-Z and Beyoncé, Notorious BIG, Usher, Janet Jackson, Aerosmith, and more. A hip-hop-inflected masterclass in cool from the inimitable DJ AM warms the heart as we near a decade since his death. Scratching and skipping his way through a trove of complementary throwbacks, AM still reminds of his place among the greats in the highest echelons of dance history.
