Producer/DJ Chris Varvaro is a self-taught instrumentalist and music producer from New Jersey. At the age of five, Chris developed an interest in music and took up drumming. He quickly honed his skills and began performing with various Jazz ensembles in New Jersey. Throughout elementary school, Chris performed for large audiences at Dizzy’s Coca Cola in Lincoln Center and the Montclair Jazz Festival which was directed by five-time GRAMMY Award-winning bassist, composer, and arranger, Christian McBride.
His fascination with the rhythms and cadences of the drums slowly faded when he was introduced to electronic dance music (EDM) during his earlier years. During a routine drive to a drum lesson, Chris’ older brother played a mashup mix by Ultra Records recording artist Kap Slap. After the drum lesson, Chris rushed home to research the remixing technique he heard. He feverishly began creating music with a free trial version of Ableton Live 8. He eventually started to take his craft more seriously and studied how to develop melodies, layering, and chord progressions. He gained creative inspiration from top EDM producers like Seven Lions, Paris Blohm, Swedish House Mafia, and Illenium.
This led to his first big opportunity when he became a resident DJ with Parazhit Radio, the world’s largest EDM radio station. His time with Parazhit Radio provided a wealth of knowledge that he applied during recording sessions. In March 2018, he released the single, “Without Me”. The track was featured on various FM radio stations throughout North America and Europe as well as receiving press coverage from a variety of publications, including ThisSongSlaps, EDM Sauce, Finest of EDM, and Tracks For Days.
Chris continued his musical voyage with the release of his remix for Fall Out Boy’s “Sugar We’re Going Down” with the duo Wayfarer. The remix gained support from Disruptor Records, Young Bombs, Two Friends, STMPD Records, and Owen Norton. He also just signed a distribution deal with Kobalt Music Group’s AWAL and is working with Billboard Top 40 artist Ricky Rebel as his producer.
In the Summer of 2018, the “#pursound” movement was unveiled by Chris in an effort to create beautiful breakdowns, synths, and progressions that will captivate EDM listeners worldwide. The movement is currently making waves across North America featuring his tracks Broken & Notebook. He most recently closed the night to a sold- out crowd at one of New York City’s top nightclubs, The Bowery Electric.
