ADLNTE is a music producer and engineer who has dedicated himself to creating music filled with passion, purpose, and positivity.
ADLNTE knew from a young age that music was his calling, spending countless hours immersed in piano and music theory, listening to everything from classical to blues, from merengue to rock; however, it was hip-hop that captured his soul. He taught himself audio engineering techniques from his dorm room studio at the University of California, Davis, one-hundred percent independently writing, producing, engineering, and distributing a mixtape that went on to make a huge impact on the UCD hip-hop scene.
ADLNTE intertwines purpose with his passion. From his study of hip hop, he knew that music can and should give voice to the voiceless, challenge dominant thinking, and inspire communities—especially marginalized communities-- to action. He returned to the Bay Area, and, as a bilingual teacher in the city of his childhood, he reached beyond the math and language arts curricula to music. He tapped into the joy of artistic self-expression that is stifled in classrooms across the country and taught students the art of music production. He later expanded his reach beyond the classroom to Templo Studios, teaching youth of all ages from throughout the community music production and audio engineering.
ADLNTE continues to develop as an artist and seizes the opportunity to work with other independent artists locally and across the globe. He has aligned himself with Independent Music Producer Curtiss King and Grammy Award Winning Producer Illmind, honing his music production skills as well as his knowledge of the music industry and the challenges facing independent artists like himself. He is currently serving as executive producer for a number of Bay Area artists and has worked with artists such as T. Carrier and, Sacramento-based musician, Rob Woods. Internationally, his instrumentals have been featured in work from artists from as far away as Nigeria and Thailand. ADLNTE’s music will also be featured in an upcoming film produced by Fabrox Films.
ADLNTE recently joined with a talented group of producers, engineers, and singer-song writers in forming the Templo Music Group, a one-stop music source offering mixing and mastering services, DJ Event services, a recording studio, and digital distribution for music.
ADLNTE is a multi-talented artist who fills his life with passion, purpose, and positivity.
ADLNTE channels life’s challenges into his art and encourages others through his music and partnerships to do the same.
ADLNTE motivates people to pursue their passions, to reach beyond internal and external walls, to embrace negative experiences, to, in essence, fail forward.
ADLNTE believes that “failure” is strength training for the soul; “failure” fortifies passion and builds purpose.
ADLNTE proclaims that together we can knock down obstacles; together we can lift and propel each other forward.
