While other kids were more interested in “Being Like Mike,” Adam Deitch was more interested in “Being Like Quincy.” Producer drummer Adam Deitch recalls, “It was around the age of 10 after I had been playing drums for 8 years, my mother told me my drumming skills along with my knowledge of melody and harmony would lead me to produce records for people”. Having guitars, pianos, basses, recording equipment, synthesizers, and two parents who wrote music and sang all the time didn’t hurt either.Adam began composing around the age of 11 with his Dad’s Ensoniq ESQ1 keyboard–one of the 1st keyboard/sequencers making beats that ranged from hip-hop, pop, R&B, gospel, jazz and fusion. Pretty soon artists in the neighborhood came knocking. “The tapes I was making at home were passed around at school, and the best artists from the area started coming by the studio.” It was this early experience as a songwriter and a producer that has given Adam the wide spectrum of experience and influences that he brings to his work. Being a drummer in so many different kinds of bands gave me an insight to how different kinds of music worked — from the instrumentation to the type of amps, strings, heads, mics, to lyrics. Adam Deitch’s career has crossed genres and he plays the role of both producer and drummer. Adam was inspired by hip-hop at an early age, inspired by Public Enemy and Eric B and Rakim. Adam has produced records for such luminaries as 50-Cent, Redman, Talib Kweli, Pharoahe Monch, Chali 2na and MF Doom. He has also done major session work on drums for artists including Justin Timberlake, Daniel Bedingfield, Anthony Hamilton, DJ Quik and Wyclef Jean and the Fugees. Adam has toured the world and recorded as a member of the Grammy Nominated John Scofield Band, Pretty Lights, the Average White Band, The Fugees, Wyclef Jean, Meshell Ndegeocello and his own Break Science and Lettuce.
Recent highlights include a Grammy nomination for Ledisi’s Turn Me Loose for which Adam produced and co-wrote two songs, co-writing and production for Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi’s Sony debut, production of two tracks on Matisyahu’s latest and a platinum single for Italian rap sensation Fabri Fibra.
