Raised and influenced by the rhythm and culture of New York City, Adam Deitch and Borahm Lee fuse generations of the city's rich musical legacy with their own deep-rooted connection to hip-hop heritage. Merging their production styles seamlessly, the duo creates a refreshingly original take on electronic music. The live show transcends expectations with Lee's seasoned trip-hop/dub/jazz vibes on keyboards and Ableton Live and Deitch's thunderous breakbeat style on drums.

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. His first gig was at a school assembly for his kindergarten class. Adam's career has crossed genres, focusing on hip-hop, funk and jazz, playing the role of both drummer and producer.

Adam was inspired by hip-hop at an early age, inspired by Public Enemy and Eric B and Rakim, Adam began his production career by making loops on a tape deck in his bedroom and has gone on to producer tracks for some of today's top emcees including 50-Cent, Redman, Talib Kweli, KRS-One, MF Doom, J-Live, Jurassic 5, Breeze Evahflowin, and Immortal Technic.

Adam has done major session work on drums for artists including Justin Timberlake, Daniel Bedingfield, Anthony Hamilton, DJ Quik and Wycleff, Black Rob and Afu-Ru and the Fugees record, sure to be one of the year's biggest records. Recently Adam has made appearances with The Game (The Tonight Show), Slick Rick, Lauryn Hill, Pras of the Fugees, GZA of Wu-Tang Clan, Dead Prez, the Ying Yang Twins, John Medeski, Meshell Ndegeocello and his own Fyre Dept as well as being a regular part of Wycleff Jean's band.

Adam 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. Fatbag had the chance to open for hip-hop icons like LL Cool J and Busta Rhymes. Notable Boston MC's Mr Lif, Akrobitik and Insight were frequent on stage collaborators.

In his third year in Boston, he joined the world renowned Average White Band, whom he performed with for the two following years. Adam was featured on the band's DVD, Live in LA, recorded at a sold out show at the House of Blues, and showed the band was at it's best. While touring with AWB, Adam performed alongside many of his heroes including Earth, Wind and Fire, Tower of Power and Chaka Kahn.

Adam is a founding member of Lettuce, who has been recording and touring for 15 years. Lettuce features such noted musicians as Eric Krasno, Ryan Zoidis, Sam Kininger and Neal Evans of Soulive, Erick Coomes, Adam Smirnoff (Robert Randolph) and Rashawn Ross (Dave Mathews Band). Lettuce is a funk powerhouse with a cult following from NYC to Tokyo. Lettuce's third studio record, RAGE! was released in April 2008 to rave reviews and sold out shows.

Adam has branched out from hip-hop and funk, recording and touring with jazz legend John Scofield. Adam has recorded on two of John's latest records (both released on legendary label Verve Records), Up All Night, which he also shares composers credit on many of the tracks and the Grammy nominated Uberjam.
