His work has garnered the attention of many, landing a spot on Skrillex's "Bangerang EP" and getting tens of millions of YouTube views with his originals.
His musical style is a blend of the traditional and the new-school, the organic and the electronic. With a focus on cinematic atmospheres, memorable melodies, and unique instrumentation, Varien draws the listener in and immerses them into another world. He has remixed the likes of Gareth Emery and Rebecca & Fiona, and has had releases on Big Beat, Ultra, Play Me and Monstercat.
