TFF15: AS I AM: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF DJ AM
16 Apr, 2015
AS I AM: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF DJ AM covers the late, great mash-up pioneer’s life from seed to sorrow — his meteoric rise to become the first million dollar DJ in the States, a long-running struggle with addiction, heroic efforts to help others in recovery, tabloid romances with assorted models and actresses, top shelf endorsement deals and appearances in IRON MAN 2, ENTOURAGE and DJ HERO, and surviving, along with Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker, a fiery plane crash that killed four others a little less than a year before his controversial and untimely death in 2009. Featuring interviews with Jon Favreau, Mark Ronson, Mix Master Mike, Steve Aoki, Diplo, DJ Jazzy Jeff, DJ Vice, A-Trak, Q-Bert, Z-Trip, Paul Oakenfold, Pasquale Rotella, Jason Bentley, Redfoo, Dr. Drew, Seth Binzer, Ben Baller, Samantha Ronson and many others, along with music by artists as diverse as Jay-Z, Queen, Guns N’ Roses, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Oasis, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Daft Punk – many of whom collaborated with AM at various points throughout his career.
