Drawing inspiration from Prince, Seattle grunge, and ’90s breakbeat loops, Varella’s groovy and dynamic first single “Over It” has garnered airplay on Brazilian radio stations. The 23-year-old Berklee student is currently working on his debut EP, which is set to release this summer.

Varella will perform a short set on Instagram at 5 p.m. EDT and Facebook at 5:30 p.m. EDT on Tuesday.
