RIP DJ AM aka ADAM GOLDSTEIN

NEW YORK – DJ AM, a Philadelphia native and sought-after disc jockey who became a celebrity in his own right with a glamorous lifestyle, was found dead yesterday at his apartment, which had drug paraphernalia in it, a law enforcement official said. There was no evidence of foul play.

DJ AM, whose real name was Adam Goldstein, 36, was famous for past relationships with the reality TV star Nicole Richie and the actress-singer Mandy Moore.

He died nearly a year after surviving a South Carolina plane crash that killed four people.

In what may have been his last interview, Mr. Goldstein answered questions from Phrequency.com, Philly.com’s music spin-off Web site. The interview was posted Wednesday.

“I am incredibly excited to be involved in the evolution with Dusk at Caesars,” Mr. Goldstein said, referring to the new nightclub at Caesars Atlantic City, where his last appearance was Tuesday.

Mr. Goldstein grew up in Rittenhouse Square and told Phrequency.com that he visited Philadelphia often.

Dusk released a statement last night: “We are devastated by the loss of Adam Goldstein, our dear friend and valued member of the Dusk family. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his loved ones. He was a true talent who will be greatly missed.”

Celebrities and fans instantly shared their reactions on Twitter, where “RIP DJ AM” was the No. 1 topic yesterday. His Twitter page is http://twitter.com/DJ_AM

45 AUDIO STATION

Designed for a club owner a while ago, the “45 Audio Station” by Chicago-based designer Christian Castro is a DJ table with an integrated vinyl case to rock the dance floor. The name “45″ has a dual meaning derived from the 45 record speed and the design’s resemblance to a handgun. The audio station is made of epoxy, concrete and steel, materials dictated by the design and a turntable’s operational requirement of no movement or vibration. The vertical element of the design is cast concrete connected to the horizontal element, which is made of molded foam. Both the vertical and horizontal elements are coated in glossy resin. The horizontal element is ridged and light, while the vertical element is heavy and immobile. The entire unit is bolted through the club floor.
