ABOUT AS I AM: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF DJ AM: A biopic about the life and work of the mash-up pioneer and his influence on electronic music. DJ AM was the king of club culture. Growing up in Philly, a broad variety of genres influenced AM’s musical tastes, and he wasn’t shy about mixing every single one of them – hip hop, rock, funk, metal, you name it – into his sets and legendary mash-ups, bringing people together on the dance floor to celebrate the power of music. Outside the club, AM (aka Adam Michael Goldstein) devoted his life to helping others in recovery, having been an early victim of substance abuse, himself.
AM’s mother, Andrea, gave director Kevin Kerslake unfettered access to AM’s laptops and journals, resulting in a portrait of the artist and all his many dark and luminous complexities. A mash-up in its own right, AS I AM: THE LIFE AND TIME$ OF DJ AM features music from AM’s iconic open format mixes, never before seen movies and stills from his own exhaustive, personal archives, and interviews with close friends and colleagues Mark Ronson, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Diplo, Steve Aoki, A-Trak, Mix Master Mike, Jon Favreau, Sal Masekela, Dr. Drew and many more!
