Double-Bass phenomenon Adam Ben Ezra announces the release of his third album ‘Hide and Seek’ in March 2020. Offering a rich sound that incorporates a unique blend of genres with a sharp focus on delivering the groove, it is no overstatement to say that this is Adam Ben Ezra’s best work to date.
For his latest effort, Adam recruited New York-based producer Isaac DaBom whose fingerprint is instantly recognizable and offers a tantalizing sound. Working closely for two months pre-production and an intensive one month recording period (in which Adam practically played every instrument), ‘Hide and Seek’ was born. Representing the peak of his career thus far, the album incorporates jazz, hip hop, R&B, electronica and Middle Eastern influences together with Adam’s instantly recognizable signature musical language, creating something that is essential listening both to casual listeners and hardcore music enthusiasts alike.

“I welcome you to join me on my musical journey through ‘Hide and Seek’. This album undoubtedly captures the hidden sounds and elements that I’ve been creating over the past few years. My gracious thanks to producer Isaac Dabom for his vision, guidance, softness and quirkiness. Thank you to the Simon family for opening their hearts and home for us. Thanks to Guy Dayan, my manager, mentor and best friend for taking care of absolutely everything and the rest. My beloved Natalie for your unconditional love and embrace (and for being on night watch!), I thank you from the bottom of my heart.” – Adam Ben Ezra
