No one took Varun Sharma seriously when he stated his intentions of getting into the music industry. Even those closest to him thought it was a passing phase because, after all, he didn’t come from a musical family. However, Varun was determined to prove everyone wrong. Despite the ridicule, he’d work hard and silenced his detractors once and for all.
Today, Varun Sharma, better known by his stage name SpaceNTime, is a hip-hop music producer based in Los Angeles, California. SpaceNTime is popular in the industry for originality, which is showcased in the original tracks.
As a composer, SpaceNTime takes pride in his original compositions and tunes. One would believe that his journey in the industry has therefore been easy, but that is not the case.
SpaceNTime has had to learn a few things that have kept him going. By the time he was in the 12th grade, he was making original beats despite having no support system.
Even though he didn’t have a proper place to practice, he made 6 tracks every day for two years until he got his own place. That’s how he developed his versatility, something he appreciates as a producer today.
When SpaceNTime turned 18, he started looking for ways to turn his passion into something profitable, but it didn’t happen overnight. He became recognized after he collaborated with Pacman Da Gunman of the All Money Records label.
Pacman and SpaceNTime started working together in 2015 and have done various projects over the last six years. SpaceNTime has also worked with other notable artists like Dom Kennedy, Wale, Icewear Vezzo, Mozzy, The Game, O.T. Genasis, and Yhung TO.
Over the years, he’s also thought of abandoning music to try something else that would not be as hard. However, music is his passion and he has learned to be innovative and is always looking for a fresh sound to keep him ahead of his game.
SpaceNTime’s biggest influences are Dr. Dre and DJ Quik. He has learned how to creatively incorporate influences from science fiction and horror genres to create a sound that resonates with a wider audience.
Crafting lyrics that touch the soul, coupled with a groovy beat that the listener can appreciate is one of SpaceNTime’s greatest joys. He conveys his honest feelings through every song he works on, and this is something very few can do.
To aspiring artists, SpaceNTime says hard work is not a choice if they want to shine in the industry. “Keep concentrating hard on your career and the results will pay off.” In the future, he hopes to become a source of inspiration to creative artists who want to do something big and innovative.
For now, he is working on some upcoming projects that are waiting to be released. He’s been working with two big names in the industry and the works are in the final stages of production.
He is also working on his streaming website, which will be the first of its kind. It will be the first service offering a producer’s unique beats by subscription.
