Deichkind (German pronunciation: [ˈdaɪçkɪnt], literally 'Dyke Child') is a Hip-Hop / Electro band formed in Hamburg, Germany in 1997. In the middle of 2008 Ferris MC, aka “Ferris Hilton”, joined singer/MC Philipp Grütering and bassist/MC Sebastian “Porky” Dürre as the newest member of the band. During their concerts the band is joined by their tour-DJ, DJ Phono.

The band had its first success at the turn of the millennium with the single “Bon Voyage.” During the 2000s their style incorporated more and more electronic elements. The most famous examples of this electronic-leaning hip hop sound are the three singles, “Remmidemmi (Yippie Yippie Yeah)” (2006), “Arbeit nervt” (2008), and “Leider geil” (2012). These three singles placed in the charts.
