Nick Kaelar, known under Varien (formerly Halo Nova), is an American composer and electronic music producer. He made his debut on Monstercat under his former alias in 2011 with his track "The Force".

His DAW of choice is FL Studio and he is listed as one of FL-Studio's power users by Image-Line, the company behind FL.[1]

He once retired the Varien alias, and has deleted all of his social media. In early January 2018, he took up the alias once again and explained the reason why he retired the alias in the first place was to finally get a break from music. When his alias returned the first song he published was The Dark Harvest, a spiritual sequal to The Scarlet Dawn.

As of 2018, he started producing again but now under his own imprint, Kitsune Soundworks. This could mean that Varien is now independent.

  • After he deleted his old twitter account, another person took the handle for themselves. Because of this, when Varien returned, he had to make a new Twitter account.
