"Making Future Electronica was a captivating experience for Israel Medina and myself. We spent a lot of time in and around downtown Los Angeles, just talking to other producers, inviting them to the studio and trying to immerse ourselves as much as possible in the genre. We spent days layering up drum hits and sculpting each hit so everything just fit together properly and worked in the loops. So much didn't make the final cut, we wanted to make sure every single sound just hit hard and knocked as much as possible" said Sharooz.
Matthias Quellmann, product marketing manager at Steinberg added: "We've worked with Sharooz before: he's really got his fingers on the pulse of today's dance music, and has an outstanding talent to come up with fresh beats time and again. With Future Electronica, Sharooz has once again done an exceptional job."
