Bookman

Bookman born as Michael Adams is an artist/producer born in New York City while residing in Philadelphia.became known for his unique style of production because he intentionally.made beats with the theory in mind that instrumental music itself must relay a mood and message and tell a story even without a vocalist/lyricist..As a producer his goal is to work with a vocalist.lyricist to help paint that picture, however in order to set himself apart from just being a "beat maker" His goal that is to make music that is good enough to grab the interest of the person who is not the vocalist/lyricist ...especially those persons who normally wouldn't listen to just beats. .Bookman first became inspired to produce music upon hearing the 3rd degree by legendary Hip-Hop group A Tribe Called Quest.entitled "Midnight Marauders. From then on others that have inspired him are names such as Pete Rock, DJ Premier, Q-Tip, Large Professor Eric Sermon, J Dilla, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Basix215, Rebel DJ, Dr. Dre and a few others. Bookman currently works as a street vendor selling mostly books on the streets of Philadelphia which is where he introduces his music as it is almost always playing from a set of speakers hooked up to a car radio powered by a car battery. It wasn't long before he became to take himself serious as people began to purchase his music cds and request his services as a producer so he decided that it was time to let the world hear what the corner was buzzing about.
