Skylar Grey’s New Record…

 The Asoka & Skylar Grey in LA July 2013

Got to chop it up with this lovely lady again at her record release party in Los Angeles. Man, this girls talented. She’s becoming one of my favorite song writers… Check out Skylar’s album “Don’t Look Down” if you haven’t already! She’s responsible for writing some of the biggest hits in recent times.  And just the way she does it is so poetic!


The Asoka & Asher Roth in LA July 2013


You gotta create the kind of music that’ll make you happy.

Had a nice convo with Asher Roth recently. His new mixtape The GreenHouse Effect Vol. 2 just released last month! Asher kills it as usual and… so did Justin Bieber? Biebs raps on a track called “Actin Up” and it’s definitely a stand out track! Wish these two would have put out that “Best of Both Worlds” type of project that was rumored a couple years ago…

‘Man Of Steel’ Gets The Rap Soundtrack It Was Missing’ –


Shout out to MTV for the support! They wrote a beautiful article on my Man of Steel EP!

No matter whether you love ‘Man of Steel,’ or hate it, there’s one thing we can all agree on: it needed a rap recap over the end credits. Luckily, hip-hop artist Asoka provided the soundtrack we all wanted (instead of that stupid Hans Zimmer score we’ve been listening to non-stop oh god it’s so good), complete with raps from both Superman and Zod’s perspective. Ever wanted to hear Zod rap about Atari? Now you can. Hooray!

The Man of Steel EP is a free release consisting of 7 new songs written and recorded by RawKey & myself. The songs are written from Clark Kent & Zod’s perspective and can be downloaded for free right here on!

Welcome 2 HySpace: Evolution Muzik!

Welcome2Hyspace Front

Every once in a while an artist comes along that redefines his genre of music. I believe J0HNS0L0 is an artist of that calibre. Sometimes you stumble upon a diamond in the underground and that’s exactly what happened when I discovered John’s music. Welcome2Hyspace is easily one of the best Hip-Hop albums made in recent years. And I’m honored to welcome J0HNS0L0 in to the Sea Side Dreams family! Enjoy the music but before that… Check out this open letter to the fans written by J0HNS0L0:

Open letter dated: 07|03|13

I’m a man of few words. I don’t speak much and I’m not the best conversationalist. It’s probably because everything I have goes in to the words I use to make songs. If you’ve heard my earlier projects you know I was angry. Angry at pretty much everything. So I wrote about it and that helped me release stress. There are over 100 songs with this theme, spanning 7 albums, one being a 3 cd ‘opus’ to every social issue that was rubbing me wrong.

The final two projects were so depressing that I won’t even give out copies any longer. I was miserable and my music was as well.

That all changed. I changed my location. Then my mental perspective and finally, my physical perspective. I did things I had never done before, because I could. I let nothing get in my way. I charged forward into my own fears, face first, eyes open wide. This is the account of those experiences which lasted several years. It was a journey into the unknown and the moment I realized how amazing it was, I wanted to share it.

I’m higher than I’ve ever been. And the view is amazing.
