ADP, aka Amish Patel, is a British electronic producer known for his work with artists such as Krept & Konan and M.I.A. Patel first became interested in music at the age of 14 after hearing a friend's CD mixes, leading him to begin DJ'ing in his bedroom. Fascinated with the use of samples and production credits on various records, he began downloading drum samples and creating his own beats. Inspired by the work of Timbaland, Max Martin, and Bryan Michael Cox, his own compositions began to touch upon various styles, ranging from hip-hop and R&B to electropop and dance. Furthering his musical education, Patel studied commercial music at the University of Westminster in 2008, and while there worked with a number of producers and artists including Guy Chambers, Conor Maynard, and Tinie Tempah. After completing his degree in 2008, he forged ahead with his own compositions and landed his first major production credit alongside Steel Banglez on Krept & Konan's 2013 mixtape, Young Kingz. The release was a success, reaching number ten on the U.K. album chart. In 2014 he signed with BMG Rights Management and went on to lend his skills to releases such as Sneakbo's 2014 mixtape, Certified, Krept & Konan's 2015 album, the Long Way Home, and M.I.A.'s 2016 track "Borders." In 2017 ADP put out his first single, "No Good for Me," featuring rappers Jeremih and Ebenezer. ~ Rob Wacey
