Let’s take it back shall we? It was around 2003, i had just moved back from Scottsdale AZ to Zuni NM. I moved back home to help with some family obligations, but tried my hardest to keep in track with the music scene via internet. One night I caught an interview of Jim Carrey (or another celeb but I vaguely remember Jim) on E! He mentioned that his DJ was AM, helping him celebrate his birthday. Next day I did some research and found DJ AM’s old website (turntable layout, which was cool!). It was a bit tricky to navigate but I was able to download the infamous Lindsey Lohan Birthday Mix. Blew my mind!!!!! As a mobile DJ at the time this gave me mad confidence that “if they can sway to this, then they can sway to that” I played this mix for friends and family that to this day still say...” I remember that mix with Bob Marley, De La Soul, Nu Shooz, etc...“
Being from a remote location like NM, it was hard to get to see him live since most shows were in LA, LV, NY and literally everywhere except NM. I finally had booked a week to catch him in Tempe the week of my Bday, but AM left us early.
I have most of AM mixes that were released via Banana Spilt, DJ AM.com and other sites that I still play to this day.. AM was beyond his time. #RIP
Ahh yes, the Lohan mix aka Live at Concorde parts 1 & 2. It was called that because Lindsey wanted Adam to play her new single that night and he very reluctantly agreed after she kept badgering him. He ended up releasing the mix in 2 parts... why? Because he edited her song out of the mix and used that point as the divider between the two parts! 😂 Btw, both parts of that mix are available to listen to on the “djamlives” Mixcloud account and on the “music” page here on the site. Thanks for sharing this memory [@djkiss87327] 👍🏼
