Early Life[edit | edit source]
Adam Dutch Durham was born in Crisfield, Maryland, United States, on June 17, 1984. He was first inspired to play music at an early age due to teenagers next door having MTV on constantly, the upcoming grunge movement, and becoming obsessed with Aerosmith in the early ’90s during their revival years. He officially started his music education while playing drums in middle school and was section leader of the drum section before graduating from Crisfield Academy and High School.
Education[edit | edit source]
Durham played in multiple side projects during his gap year between graduating high school and enrolling at Berklee College of Music. While at Berklee, Durham studied subjects such as songwriting, music business, and music technology. His private drum set instructor was Rod Morgenstein of rock band Winger and jazz fusion band Dixie Dregs. He credits his experience with the community at Berklee as being one of the most valuable parts of his music education, as he was exposed to many different styles of music and other individuals passionate about music.
Durham graduated from Berklee College of Music in 2005 with a Master of Business Administration in music business. Upon returning to Delmarva in 2005, Durham enrolled at Salisbury University and started gigging professionally in Ocean City, Maryland, near his hometown.

From 2007 to 2010, Durham was a sound engineer at Seacrets, Jamaica U.S.A., (https://seacrets.com/) where he worked with acts such as SOJA, Tonic, Rusted Root, Skid Row, Donavon Frankenreiter, Eek-a-mouse, Bo Bice, The Movement, and others.
In late 2009, Durham formed a house music group called Alternate Seduction with Trisha Benton.  The group soon moved to Baltimore and originally practiced in the Copycat Building. While in Baltimore, the group performed at venues such as Mosaic in Power Plant Live!, The Paradox, and Red Maple. The group also performed in Washington, D.C., and New York City with a live band. They released a self-titled EP along with many single tracks. During this time period, Durham worked as a DJ at several bars/clubs, including multiple Greene Turtle and Ram’s Head locations, and as a music instructor at various TakeLessons and School of Rock locations.
When Alternate Seduction went on hiatus in 2013, Durham moved back to Delmarva, where he started DJing full time and filled in with various original artists and cover bands in the state of Maryland.
Durham currently runs Modulation Studios and specializes in rock mashups of Top 40/hip hop/EDM tracks. He maintains a busy DJ schedule.  During his live shows, audiences can expect to hear many different genres blended together in a performance style environment. National acts he has performed or worked with on stage include Blessid Union of Souls, Puddle of Mudd, Flock of Seagulls, Gin Blossoms, Tonic, Rusted Root, Skid Row, Lit, Tantric, Sponge, Soul Asylum, Fuel, SOJA, The Movement, Donavon Frankenreiter, Aaron Lewis, Josh Thompson, and Matt Stillwell. His more than 150 shows a year include performances in his home base of Ocean City, as well as shows in Baltimore; Washington, D.C.; Florida; and New York City.
When not performing or producing tracks, Durham can be found writing and working on music education materials. In August 2017 and 2018, he hosted a seminar on mashup production at the DJ Expo in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and continues to present other seminars on music.
