I've worked with some of the most renowned Israeli singer-songwriters: Mark Eliyahu, Dikla, Keren Peles, Miri Mesika, Sarit Hadad, Nadav Guedj, Kuki Levana & more.

I am a proud Dave Smith artist and an official DJ Tech Tools artist. My passion is to push my music to the limits of creation.

I specialize in producing and mixing Hip Hop and Pop music. I always come up with original sounds and catchy melodies for the tracks I produce and for the beats I am making.

I know how to communicate effectively and want to make sure that you are completely satisfied with the result. Going above and beyond expectations and meeting my deadline on time is something I do with every track I make.

    Adi helped separate the individual instruments on an audio beat loop. He was quick, to the point, and professional.

    Adi is a Pop genius, spreading through the diversity of music genres locally and worldwide and has a very fine and distinct sound of his own that stands out in every musical situation, specially in his works for the ‘Choke Beat Orchestra’. All of these values, among being a super cool person, made him a top musician and producer in the Israeli industry.

  8. Review by Omer Luz

    Choke is Top Quality Producer.
    his sound signature is a result of rare combination - oriental and organic instruments - beside beat-making skillz hip hop grooves and electronica flavours.
    Choke is a reach & Tasty soup after all.

  9. Review by Ohad Nissim

  10. Review by Omer Birka
    by Omer Birka

    I had to pleasure to record the very first song Adi ever recorded when we were about 14. Adi was a great (and still is) guitar player. At some point, and that's probably Adi's best attribute, he felt like something was missing, like he had to innovate. Ever since then he never kept searching for these new sounds and creative ideas. Also, he's a great guy to hang with and be around. If you are an aspiring artist you would want to be around that talent and energies Adi brings to the room.

    Simply, a brilliant musician and a kind human being. I’ve known Adi for years, and he’s always been true to these unique adjectives. That is, nurturing an ingenious approach towards his art and, never mind the bustle, staying with his feet on the ground. Adi’s not just another aspiring artist, but a real professional, and working with him would give a better result than what you’d been aiming for. Groove it up!

    Adi has worked with me on my last EP. Aside from the fact he is a wonderful guy, easy to work with, professional and a great communicator - literally, everyone who listens to the songs is going crazy cause his sound is SICK. Will definitely work with this talented beatmaker again!
