Point Blank LA Presents: Masterclass w/ Sample Magic CEO Sharooz Raoofi

Point Blank Los Angeles regularly hosts masterclasses at our Mack Sennett studio complex for our students and graduates – recently we’ve had the likes of Mix Master Mike, Sanfuentes & Robot Koch stop by our studios to give an insight into their work and their creative processes. We’re excited to announce that we will be adding Sharooz Raoofi to that list, with the Sample Magic CEO presenting a guest masterclass at Point Blank Los Angeles on Thursday 13th July. All students and graduates are welcome and you can register your interest via the Facebook event.

As the owner of Sample Magic, Sharooz has spent over a decade creating sounds, instruments and plugins, having worked extensively alongside Ableton, Apple, Steinberg, Reason, Akai, and Bitwig and programming synthesizers for Korg, FXpansion, and numerous iOS apps. With tracks on Modular and Lektroluv and remixes/collabs with Robyn, Tensnake, Moby and Mylo to his name, Sharooz has DJ’ed across the globe, stopping off at some the world’s finest clubs. Having scored numerous Beatport genre top 10s he also runs the label La Bombe and was the original founder of Attack Magazine. In his past he has also worked for Strictly Rhythm, Warner Brothers and Beatport, and composed works for numerous film and TV projects for EMI Music Publishing and BMG. Along with releasing music again after a two-year hiatus, Sharooz recently set up the studio ‘Principle Pleasure’ in Downtown Los Angeles, containing one of the world’s largest collections of vintage analogue synthesisers and drum machines and is currently developing the plugin ‘Klip’.
