Asaf Fulks discovered his passion for music production during his college years. While studying Computer Science and Economics at Denison University in Ohio, he also spent time recording and producing in his dorm room. After graduating in 2004, he moved to his family in Hollywood and eventually relocated to Orange County to work for a book publisher. His boss recognized his passion for music and encouraged him to set up a studio in his unused office space. With minimal gear and few contacts Asaf set up shop and The OC Recording Company opened its doors in 2005.
Asaf's first client D1, a rapper from Boston, was also new to OC, and together they completed projects with well-known rappers AZ and Royce D'59. Asaf helped D1 secure a record deal. It was a great start!
Word of Asaf's talent spread and soon he was booked weeks in advance with a range of projects, from solo artists to full bands. He poured his earnings back into studio improvements and expansions. In 2007, he produced musicforte.com's song of the year for the Medallions, several of his artists won OCMA awards and he was featured in The OC Weekly. His first compilation album won him the title "Timbaland of the west coast." By West Coast performer magazine.
Asaf continued to develop as a music producer and engineer. He composed scores for award winning films, radio show sand produced for platinum and Grammy winning artists Lil Wayne, Young Jeezy, Tyga, Kendrick Lamar and others. Asaf’s third compilation album released in 2011, featured the hit song ‘Breakout’ by My Hero, which become the theme song for The LA Clippers and St. Louis Cardinals. The song was also featured on ESPN Capital One Bowl, Showtime's The Franchise and Oxygen's Bad Girls Club.
