HIPHOPBEATZ.COM was founded in 2005. Our all original music catalog was produced, composed and engineered by industry leading music producer and audio engineer Asaf David Fulks. We’ve been working around the clock to get our full catalog of instrumentals available on our redesigned website. The time has arrived! All 166 of our world class instrumentals are now available for music licensing directly online. Our music library fuses a wide variety of genres including hip hop, pop, r&b, soul, jazz, funk, rock, reggae, indie, electronic, edm, dubstep, trap, top 40, urban, contemporary, country, orchestral, middle eastern music and much more. Each track has been meticulously produced, recorded, mixed and mastered in our state of the art studios, The OC Recording Company in Orange County, California.

The OC Recording Company is a record label, music publisher, recording studio and accredited audio school in Orange County, California. Founded in 2005 by recording artist, songwriter, music producer, audio engineer, graphic designer, website designer, videographer, inventor, author and educator Asaf David Fulks.

Originally from Chicago, Illinois, Asaf discovered his passion for music production during his college years studying Computer Science and Economics at Denison University in Ohio. He converted his dorm room closet into a recording booth and began to teach himself the craft of music making. Soon Asaf became a hub for recording within the school and surrounding Columbus area. 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 hip hop artists AZ and Royce D’59. Asaf launched hiphopbeatz.com and 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 received placements on feature films Adam Sandler’s Chuck and Larry and Disney’s Sorcerer’s Apprentice. He composed scores for award winning films, radio shows and engineered for platinum and Grammy winning artists Lil Wayne, Young Jeezy, Tyga, Kendrick Lamar and others.
