Deichkind (German pronunciation: [ˈdaɪçkɪnt], literally 'Dyke Child') is a Hip-Hop / Electro band formed in Hamburg, Germany in 1997. Deichkind's characteristic lyrics typically consist of irony and humor. In 2005, Deichkind represented Mecklenburg-Vorpommern in the Bundesvision Song Contest, finishing 14th of the 16 entries. The band's single Electric Super Dance Band marked a noted change in their sound. Their recent appearances (mostly at House and Electro clubs) display this change noted by fast, electronic rhythms. The band describes their new sound as TechRap, a mixture of techno and rap. Deichkind is very well known for its crazy and wild live shows including rubbish bag-outfits, trampolines, vodka, and pillow fights among other things.

The death of producer and friend Sebi Hackert on 21 February 2009 caused a major shock to the band.
