DJ MATEO
BIO

Don’t get it twisted; this young gun is no newcomer to DJ'ing. '99 marked the year Matéo would acquire his first pair of turntables. It wouldn’t be long before he would be found sneaking underage into the Vancouver nightclubs, playing breaks with some of the most talented DJs Vancouver had to offer. As the years went on, he continued to play at numerous venues across Vancouver dropping everything from funk to dubstep.

The secret to success? Playing what you like! For Matéo, acknowledging that music doesn’t have to be the “latest and greatest” in order to have dance floor appeal is key. Inspired by those who did it first, Matéo continues to seamlessly blend genres from across the musical spectrum, educating and nourishing the dance floor at the same damn time.

RIP DJ AM. This song's for you.





Antony and the Johnsons - Another World (mediafire)

This is has been a seriously crazy year. Do they have a year of the devil in the horror-scopes? Cause it doesn't seem real. News reached that DJ AM has passed. After escaping death and surviving a plane crash earlier this year this is the last thing anyone expected. While still unconfirmed, it has not been shown to be false either. RIP DJ AM. This songs for you.

This is DJ AM's last tweet from 3 days ago. Hella eerie. Prayers and condolences for DJ AM's family and the entire DJ community.

DJ AM Dies

Law enforcement sources tell us DJ AM -- also known as Adam Goldstein -- was found dead this afternoon in New York City.

Sources tell us he was found in his apartment at around 5:20 PM. We're told drug paraphernalia was found at the scene.

Our sources say DJ AM had not been seen or heard from for a few days -- one of his friends went to check on him, but got no response after knocking on his apartment door.

We're told the friend called the cops -- but it was the fire department who finally entered his apartment and found the body.

Back in September of 2008, DJ AM and Travis Barker survived a plane crash in South Carolina. Four people died in the crash -- which was caused when the airplane aborted takeoff and then ran off the runway. DJ AM and Barker were the only survivors.
