Pasha released his second album “New Root Race” in 2011, third album “432 Hz Music” in 2013 with a 2015 follow up “432 Hz”.
In 2017 Pasha 808 released “432Hz Dance Music” album combining previous EDM tracks with new remixes under one roof.
A follow up 2018 EP titled “Hidden Island (EDM remix 432)” is to be released on 8.11.18 the release of which already got delayed from original 7.27.18 release date due to alleged censorship of 432 Hz by some of the biggest names in music industry. Pasha had to remove “Hz” (pronounced hertz, which is a measure of frequency) from album title and song names in order for album to be approved for world wide delivery.
His music’s been featured in TV series in Hawaii, most recently Soul Surfers.
Pasha’s unique 432 Hz tuned music is a fusion of many music genres such as Reggae, Rock, EDM (such as Trance), Dub, Surf, Dancehall, Ambient/Downtempo, New Age, World, and Chillout.
From song-writing and music production to live performances – for the love of music and it’s message Pasha’s lyrics and music are about living in peace and love, spreading consciousness, protecting the environment, expressing emotions and feelings, being creative, finding inspiration, uplifting energy, spirituality, oneness, and love! Basically all things TPTB can’t stand lol 😀
Pasha was born into and grew up in a musically inclined family. Both of his parents graduated music school. His father was a master violinist at a young age, who to this day can play the acoustic guitar and sing. His mother studied piano and her mother, Pasha’s grandmother, was a piano and vocal teacher for most of her life, so Pasha was exposed to her playing the piano and singing at home from an early age.
Naturally, from early on Pasha was into music. At 5 he enjoyed singing songs along to his grandparent’s vinyl record player. Two years later Michael Jackson became his first music icon. To this day Pasha has the 1983 tape recording of Thriller. Even better, Pasha was privileged to see Michael Jackson live in the 90’s with his father! When he was 10 he was blessed with the opportunity to personally gift two of his drawings along with his school’s best art to the Queen of England Elizabeth II.
Pasha moved to Santa Barbara, California at 13 with his mom. There she bought him his first musical instrument – the tenor saxophone. Shortly after he joined the 8th grade La Colina Junior High School orchestra and continued until his last high school years at San Marcos High in Santa Barbara.
During high school years Pasha was introduced and predominantly consumed by the music of Bob Marley and the Wailers, Jimi Hendrix, Sublime, Red Hot Chili Peppers, 311, 2Pac, Carlos Santana, Enigma, Sade, and many many other talented musicians and bands.
At 15 Pasha got his first taste of mixing simple music tracks of other artists on his home PC. At 18 years he taught himself how to play the guitar by watching Jimi Hendrix performing at Woodstock on VHS over and over again and practicing everyday even if it had to be in the car or in the middle of the night.
That’s when Pasha also got into recording and producing his own material because he really enjoyed it making music – it allowed him to do something creative, focused, and positive.
