Masterfully produced genre transcendence: the best way to describe Varien’s many works over the years. From his feature on Skrillex’s huge EP “Bangarang,” to his most recent work in movie trailers “300: Rise of an Empire” and “The Purge: Anarchy,” the only thing more impressive are his numbers. Nick Pittsinger, aka Varien, has accrued over ten million plays on Youtube alone, as well as over one million plays on Soundcloud.
With official remixes for Gareth Emery, Celldweller, and Rebecca & Fiona under his belt, multiple #1 Beatport chart toppers, and a list of video game soundtrack compositions, the 23 year old Floridians resume is quite extensive. His development of sample libraries for 8dio used by artists far and wide helps to complete the understanding of Varien’s production capabilities.
Rated one of Alternative Press Magazine’s “Top 100 Artists You Need To Know This Year” in the company of electronic music group Krewella; it is obvious that Varien is an incredible talent. Varien’s combination of live instruments, varied cultural influences, and darkly cinematic qualities result in quality releases time and time again. As Pittsinger continues to explore his sound in preparation for upcoming releases, expect a journey through genre and musical elements drawing inspiration from around the world.
