This latest single comes off the back of a busy 12 months for Varski, who is one of very few British Asians in the UK house scene. Known as the ultimate showman and party frontman, he has served up plenty of official and unofficial remixes that have picked up high profile support from the likes of BBC Radio 1, James Hype and Sigala, while one was even made the official 2020 tour anthem of immersive club brand, Foreverland.
2021 is proving to be Varski’s biggest year to date, yet he’s been making moves for almost a decade. With famous charm and charisma to spare, the lovable character hosted the Dance Show on Club MTV in 2017 and went on to open the MTV EMAs, but these days he is deeply immersed in the studio.
In the past, Varski’s tracks were defined by their big bass, producing alongside Prop-er Tings and Eddie Craig, and releasing his first major track ‘Jeddah’ on Macky Gee’s label Down 2 Earth Musik.
These days he has a slick, contemporary dance sound full of lush hooks, bright synths and irresistible basslines, all of which play out in his latest single.
Says Varski of his latest release, “The past 16 months has really taken its toll on everyone all over the world. With ‘Gravity’ and my new sound in general, I wanted to focus on sending out positive messages and make people feel good – life is love. ‘Gravity’ came about really quickly once I heard the vocals by Vesa. I knew exactly where I wanted to take the track production-wise. Drawing back on my main goals to send positive vibes, I was really inspired by Ibiza pool parties with this track, hence the violins. It just reminds me of sitting on a sun bed with a Coke Zero (I don’t really drink alcohol lol) after taking 50 selfies with Wayne Lineker and vibing to the DJ and a violinist – ‘Gravity’ takes me back there.”
As a DJ, Varski’s slick mixing skills have seen him perform all over the world at iconic events such as Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, to the main stage at Ultra Europe, and at cool Blackpool hangout, Switch.
With clubland opening up again, Varski is back on tour performing across the UK and Europe with forthcoming appearances at Foreverland, Inside Out, Snowboxx Festival and more.
Expect the brilliant new single ‘Gravity’ to be unleased on tour; an immediately uplifting and life-affirming dance track. It has a lush, rich sounds thanks to the big strings and warm, rubbery bass. Sustained pads keep the listener locked in the moment while the bubbly groove is topped off in heart-aching fashion with an angelic and soulful vocal from Vesa that cannot fail to get crowds singing and hands waving.
On London’s New State Music, a well-established label famous for its many definitive compilations; Varski resides alongside some of the biggest tunes in dance, trance and pop from legendary artist like Jody Wisternoff, Dirty Vegas, Shadow Child and count-less more. It’s the perfect home for this new dance pin-up.
This fantastic new single is sure to keep building momentum behind Varski, who is undoubtedly one of 2021’s most prominent artists.
