    I've used Varun twice now and will continue to use his services in the future. He is very professional, and more importantly delivers the goods with punchy, loud, well balanced, and dynamic tracks. Varun is a stud!!!

  5. Review by Benji B.

    He's amazing at his mastering. He was quick and had helpful input as to things to work on in my mixes as well. Totally great and easy to work with. I will definitely be working with him more as I complete new mixes.

  6. Review by John A.

    Varun's awesome to work with. Something I really did appreciate was even when I didn't yet hire him he kindly gave me some feedback on how I could make the production even better and it goes to show he's about making good music regardless of getting hired or not. You can tell from Varun's work that he's determined in doing whatever it takes to put together a final product that fulfills my vision, and I couldn't be happier with the track I got out of working with him.

  7. Review by Thushithev K.

    Varun has been a thorough professional in providing with excellent mixing and mastering service. Initially with every song that needs mixing, as a composer you go through so many engineers and are hesitant on selecting one that would do justice to your song. Varun's quality of work and the way he would work with the artist/ composer to bring out the best in the track makes it worth the money invested. He nailed the track for me and exceeded all my expectations. It was a pleasure working with him

  8. Review by Gray W.

    Varun is lit! He did an excellent job mastering my track and even offered to re-master it if it didn't fit my vision for the track. Will use Varun again in the future 100%

  9. Review by David Schoenwetter

    Varun is an amazing mastering engineer! He was able to achieve great crispness, clarity, and polish with my project, and I'll definitely be hiring him again really soon!

  10. Review by Muza

    The balance and professionalism of the track that Varun masters is next level. Really nice guy and very cooperative.

  11. Review by Wesley

    Having worked with Varun a few times now, he has a naturally gifted ear that we all pray our mixing engineers have. His quality is truly comparable to the best major label mix engineers out there, and Varun comes at a fraction of the cost. You're gonna get depth, clarity and a whole lot of punch. Do not sleep on Varun!!! You want an amazing pro mix, he will give you just that.

Interview with Varun

  1. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  2. A: What is your vision for the track? Is this geared for the club or something someone would listen to at home? Was there a specific song you were referencing? Are there any specific parts of the song that you feel need extra attention?

  3. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  4. A: One of my favorite tricks to get your drop to really pop is to automate the stereo width smaller right before it hits. It creates a really unique illusion.

  5. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  6. A: Primarily EDM. Future Bass/ Future Pop, Trap, Progressive House, Trance, House.

  7. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  8. A: The ear I've developed for bringing a song to life through the mix. I always thought of mixing as a very mechanical thing until I was able to see some of the masters at work. It opened my eyes to a whole new approach to mixing and made a significant difference in the quality I was able to provide in tracks for my clients as well as my own.

  9. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  10. A: My goal in every project I work on is to allow it to shine in the best way possible. I go above and beyond for my clients and want to make sure that your song has the best opportunity to succeed. I have countless years of experience and have learned from some of the best. After spending years as a DJ dissecting and analyzing music, I know what works well in the club and radio.

  11. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  12. A: Martin Garrix, Major Lazer, DJ Snake, Alesso, Skrillex

  13. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  14. A: Often times I'll get a client that has an unfinished track that they feel is still missing something. That's where I'll come in to give an assessment whether additional production is needed or just tightening up the mixing & mastering.
