HARBER
HARBER, the multi-faceted DJ/producer and 22-year-old New York native, exploded onto the electronic dance music (EDM) circuit in 2018 with his original production “Summer You” [450 Music]. Featured on Spotify’s New Music Friday Cratediggers and Chill Tracks playlists, HARBER’s music has also gone into rotation on Los 40 Radio and Dash Radio. HARBER’s sophomore single “Me And My Friends” feat. Angel Taylor was released through PRMD Music, spending three consecutive weeks on Apple Music’s Breaking Dance/EDM. HARBER culminates of various electronic sub-genres and pop; crafting a distinct sound of his very own.

Starting 2019 on a high note, HARBER joined forces with Lexy Panterra for the release of “More Than You”. In March, the single premiered on iHeartRadio Evolution’s Beats & Booze, and the pair released an official music video and remix EP (HARBER, Modern Machines, AmPm, MIMO). Making his Miami Music Week debut in 2019 at the Shore Club, HARBER played alongside Moksi & Friends (Curbi, Born Dirty), following a show with The Him in Nashville.

With support from The Chainsmokers, HARBER’s hard-hitting remix of “Sick Boy” was featured on Trap Nation Radio with guest-host Crankdat. Hand-picked as EDM.com’s Remix of the Week artist for his rendition of Khalid & Normani “Love Lies,” in 2018, HARBER was also called upon for stand-out remixes of NOTD feat. Bea Miller “I Wanna Know” and Prismo “Solo”. Possessing experience performing in nightclubs and music festivals, HARBER’s ability to read the crowd is truly a testament to his genuine passion for music and his authentic tastemaker abilities.

Chris Varvaro
"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.

More recently, 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 remixed Warner Music’s artist Davis Mallory and his single “Lost”. He also just signed a distribution deal with Kobalt Music Group’s AWAL.

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 opened for EDM artist, HARBER, at one of New York City’s top nightclubs, The Bowery Electric"
