Adam Deitch may have been predestined to be a drummer. The son of two professional funk drummers and Berklee grads, Adam first picked up his sticks at the age of two and was sitting in with his parents funk band by the age of six. Adams career has crossed genres, focusing on hip-hop, funk and jazz, playing the role of both drummer and producer. He has developed his own style of playing that he adapts to his wide range of styles- including funk, drum&bass, dub,old and new R&B, jazz and of course hip-hop. It’s Adams unique style that drives his popularity among fans, musicians and students alike.

Adam was inspired by hip-hop at an early age, inspired by Public Enemy, KRS-1, and Eric B and Rakim, Adam began his production career by making loops on a tape deck in his bedroom and messing around with his Dads drum machines and various synths. AD has gone on to produce tracks for some of today’s top emcees including RedMan, Xzibit, Talib Kweli, KRS-One, MF Doom, J-Live, OC, M1(Dead Prez) Jurassic 5, Breeze Evahflowin,Wordsworth,Jean Grae, Immortal Technic and El Da Sensei.

Adam has done major session work on drums for artists including Justin Timberlake, English pop sensation Daniel Bedingfield, Chaka Khan, Anthony Hamilton, DJ Quik, Wyclef, Black Rob and Afu-Ru and is now working on the upcoming Justin Timberlake and Fugees records, sure to be two of the years biggest records. Recently, Adam has made appearances with Lauryn(Ms.) Hill, Pras of the Fugees, GZA of Wu-Tang Clan, Dead Prez, Meshell Ndegeocello, Wordsworth,and J-live as well as continuing to develop and promote his own SUPERproduction team/live hip hop band, the Fyre Dept.

While in high school Adam would follow his friends that were aspiring rappers to the Nuyorican Poets Café in New York City hosted by Bobito The Barber, which featured then emerging poets and emcees(such as Mos Def and Talib Kweli).He would end up injecting his breakbeat style into the fold while sitting in on the drums at these packed open mics in the early 90's. Adam further honed his drumming and production skills while attending the Berklee College of Music in 1994. While in Boston, Adam began several successful groups including hip-hop groups The Formula and Fatbag, winner of the Boston Music Awards Best Hip-Hop Band in 1998, 1999 and 2000. The Formula, possibly the grimiest, most street sounding hip hop band of all time, had the chance to open for hip-hop legends LL Cool J, Busta Rhymes and KRS-One. Notable Boston MCs Mr Lif, Akrobitik, Insight, 7L and Esoteric were frequent on stage collaborators with the Formula...

Lettuce, who still maintains a cult following in the US and Japan, was another project that evolved from Adams network in Boston. The mega funk group still does rare sold out performances and its members have gone on to big things. Bassist Erick Coomes regularly records with Snoop Dogg, TI, and DJ Quik; Jeff Bhasker with the Game, Eric Krasno leads the group Soulive and has recorded and played with Chaka Khan and Stevie Wonder and Adam Smirnoff is with Grammy award winner Robert Randolph.

In his third year in Boston, AD joined the world renowned Average White Band, whom he performed with for two years. Adam was featured on the bands DVD, Live in LA, recorded at a sold out show at the House of Blues, showing the band at its best. While with AWB, Adam performed and got to hang out alongside many of his heroes including Earth, Wind and Fire, Tower of Power, Isley Bros. and Chaka Kahn.

Adam has branched out from hip-hop and funk, recording and touring extensively all over the world with jazz/funk/fusion legend John Scofield. Adam has recorded on two of Johns latest records (both released on legendary label Verve Records), Up All Night, which he shares composers credit on many of the tracks, as well as the Grammy nominated album Uberjam. Since the Scofield journey, Adam has been on the move working with countless different bands (Dap Kings,Fully Loaded) singers(Meshell Ndegeocello),and MCs, (Redman, KRS1) insuring his positive contribution to the music of the future and beyond.......
