With a genuine love of combining unconventional instruments in a conventional setting, it is no wonder that Varien (Nick Pittsinger, 22) has everyone talking about him. 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.
Varien also has composed trailers and soundtracks to big budget video games and films that have sold millions of copies around the world. Nick is definitely a diamond in the rough.
