Bio

Viken Arman, along with a generation of like-minded artists, is pushing the boundaries of electronic music towards the future and the past. He fuses ancient melodies with electronic beats to create magical vibes that go beyond dance music, bringing rich cultures together in mystical musical journeys.

Growing up with jazz and classical music, he draws influence from a very versatile music background from Keith Jarrett, Erik Satie, Bill Evans, Jay Dilla, Ricardo Villalobos to the Arabic diva Oum Khalthoum. His knowledge of piano, as well as his time at the music conservatory, contributed to his wide musical culture.

When he’s not making music, Viken focuses his energy on supporting and nurturing this particular and rich music scene even further. He founded Denature Records, which, as he describes it, is more than just a label but more of a family of artists. He also pledged to support young and upcoming talents from around the world, as well as organizing his own events with the SOUQ Festival.

His music is engrained with ethnical influences and reveals the passionate explorer that he embodies.
