Adis Hotic (aka Duky) was born in Bosanski Novi, Bosnia & Hercegovina on January 19, 1989. He has been very passionate about music his whole life. Growing up in the 90's, Duky loved listening to Hip-Hop. Hearing drums, rhythms, basslines, and deep lyrics by artists like Wu-Tang, Mos Def, Nas, Gangstarr, and Mobb Deep greatly influenced Duky to start working on his own music. At age 13 he was introduced to Fruity Loops and then started working on his own hip-hop instrumentals.
As time passed, electronic music was exposed to him at a local music festival, DEMF, in Detroit, MI. Immediately
felling in love with it; started producing house music instead of hip-hop. Duky quickly gained respect and support with his remix of "Morning Cigarette" by major players in the game such as tINI, Enzo Siragusa, Chris Lattner, Richie Hawtin, and Marco Carola. Each track Duky produces is a reflection of his emotions at that specific point in his life along with great passion, joy, and fondness for music. His style consists of groovy basslines, hip-hop influenced rhythms and percussions, deep abstracts sounds, and a touch of swing. Duky devotes countless hours in the studio on each track he produces, believing that quality and self-satisfaction of each tune is much more important than the quantity of tracks released.
In August 2011, Duky launched his own vinyl/digital label, Deep Tech Records, which has been successfully releasing some of the finest music available on today's market. The label includes releases by talented and prestigious artists like Miro Pajic, Randall M, Chad Andrew, Jun Akimoto, Ittetsu, Brett Jacobs, Butane, Someone Else, Loquace, Bodeler, Medeew & Chicks Luv Us, and various other highly respected musicians. Deep Tech Records has been climbing the top 100 charts on Beatport and many other respected online music stores, with almost every single release since the label has launched. Today Duky strives to maintain the high quality music on his label, gigs/shows, and most importantly his own productions.
