Discovering electronic music in the mid-90s, Varun’s habit of compiling and manipulating sounds led to a DJ career under several aliases until he found the name Yidam, a concept synonymous with his meditative approach to music.

Gigging extensively in the US, he formed the chillUmafia DJ collective with DJ Damon from Poland in 2005. Later years were spent managing a record label (DBR) and organising events around the country. After experiencing Burning Man in 2008, Varun moved back to his hometown, Kolkata.

His sets and tracks have been heard in India, Nepal, Poland, Switzerland, Germany and Portugal. A background in computer engineering led to his project 5volts which involves the use of analog synthesizers, digital sensors & interactive coding to create immersive audio-visual experiences.
