Read the Varity Interview below and share it on social media.

Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?

My name is Zach, and my artist name is Varity. I am a producer from north Houston and currently signed to the label, SYNC Records. My whole music career began with the idea that I wanted to challenge myself and try something new in music, as I also play in a performing concert band. I first found electronic music from generic YouTube video intros, and I quickly took a liking to them. It wasn’t until my sophomore year of high school that I actually decided to start producing. Seeing how far I’ve come, I know I made the right choice to start producing. My current releases are on SYNC Records, and as of New Years Eve 2017, I finished my first EP, which was released on SYNC Records moments ago! Since it’s my first EP, it has a very special place in my heart, and any support would be truly loved. Stay tuned for amazing stuff!




How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?

My biggest influence was surprisingly marching band. Listening to such outstanding scores and compositions drove me to create my own music. My tastes overall are fairly very widespread, but I cannot get into rap. I respect rap, but I just don’t find it pleasing to listen to.

What´s new right now?

As I mentioned earlier, my EP released on SYNC Records just a few minutes ago. The EP is titled, “Here in the Garden”, and it’s much more abstract than the title let’s on. In short, the EP is about how in the end, we are all part of one living entity in the universe. The “Garden”, symbolizes our universe through how simple yet oddly complex our universe is. Here is the long version:

-The path to the center of our world is not a difficult one, at least not physically. To truly find the center is to not only understand peace, but live with harmony. This is why the "Garden" is a very serene place.

New Dawn:
-As you approach the "Garden", one thing becomes clear: The amount of new opportunities are endless. With different paths and fresh horizons, it's starting to look like a New Dawn.

-At last you have arrived at the "Garden". As you look around, you are mesmerized by what appears to be a perfect world. In other words, an Eden.

Defying Nature:
-Taking a closer look at the environment around you, you notice odd and perplexing shapes and structures that go against nature's wishes. As it turns out, these shapes are the foundations of all things living and nonliving. Apparently, to defy nature is to create something else entirely.

We Are One:
– Finally, it all becomes clear. Our world is a perfect circle, with a even more perfect center. At this center, everything comes together to form a bigger picture. It would only make sense that, in the end, We Are One in the universe, and it has been like that since the dawn of time.

Give this EP all the support you can and stay tuned for more, as 2018 is only just getting started!!

Are you a superfan of anyone? How did you become a superfan? Do you remember how you become a fan and what turned you into super fan? Have you ever thought about why you´re such a fan?

I’m a guilty super fan for 5 major artists:
-Seven Lions
-Pegboard Nerds
-Nitro Fun

The weirdest part about these is that up until a few months before I started producing, I had no idea the artist Seven Lions existed. I went to one of his concerts when I found out his special guest was one of my all-time favorite producers. After I watched Seven Lions perform live, I became determined to sound as awesome as him. I guess you could say he was my inspiration.

What was the biggest mistake you made when you started making music and what would be the number one tip you could give to a newcomer musician?

I’ve only had one bad song, I never released it but I swore never to make that mistake again. When you are writing a song, and you get to a point when you don’t really like it, NEVER try to make yourself like it by altering things. The moment you become dissatisfied with your song, start over. I know that sounds harsh and unfair, but if you didn’t like your own song, what makes you think others will?

What has been your biggest challenge right now? Have you been able to overcome that challenge? If so, how?

As of now, Varity is just another pebble on the road. I am very unknown to the EDM community, and it’s very challenging to suddenly turn on the lights and become noticed. Thankfully I got signed to a record label, but even still, I still have yet to reach that point on my journey as an artist.

How do you personally discover new music?

I am on many different small discord servers that contain many different types of artists and music.

Once you discovered new music, do you tell others about the new music/artist you discovered? If yes, how exactly?

“I usually tell my friends about artists that are showing EXTREME potential. I usually pull up a track on my phone and play for them.

What is your number one tip to improve your music production or songwriting skills?

Personally, I took piano lessons for 6 years, and then learned music theory. These are essential to creating proper chord structure and rhythms. If you don’t have the time for these, then I suggest experimenting until you find the type of song that works best for YOU.

What is your best tip for those who struggle with finishing their tracks?

First off, no one is perfect. There will always be mental roadblocks, the trick however, is teaching yourself to push on. Try to think about the reward for finishing your track, or what’s it like when you release that track.

We meet again in one year. What has changed?

With how much I have been improving as an artist, I expect to reach new heights and be discovered by the big names of today.
