Christian Valentin Brunn, (born 20 July 1994) better known by his stage name Virtual Riot, is a German DJ and electronic music producer. At the age of 23, he has released several albums and EPs, most notably his 2013 album, "There Goes Your Money." He was signed to the independent music label Disciple Recordings in 2014.
Brunn has amassed over 227,000 followers on SoundCloud and is increasing rapidly, where he has released many tracks, beginning with a rock-pop piece entitled "Wake Me Up", and recently, his EP 'Throwback'. He also has exceeded 276,000 subscribers on YouTube where he uploads his songs, monologues and tutorials on music production.
Prior to producing under the alias "Virtual Riot", Brunn produced ambient dubstep and future garage music under another alias known as Your Personal Tranquilizer. He stated in a livestream on his Twitch.tv account that his works under that alias are "somewhere on YouTube", that being the YouTube channel "stollentroll32" featuring Brunn playing piano, and making domino videos.
He has also produced several sample and preset packs for music producers, with some of his most popular packs including his 2014 self-titled sample pack on Prime Loops, and his preset packs for VSTs like Native Instruments' Massive and Xfer's Serum.
His studio mascot is a little elephant his girlfriend bought him for his 20th birthday.
On 21 February 2017, Brunn teased his new EP, Throwback, via his official YouTube page. Unlike his Chemistry EP, which released in 2016, Throwback appears to be a literal homage/tribute to his earlier works, straying away from the riddim style and containing tracks that are reminiscent of genres he previously produced within such as melodic dubstep, electro, and drum and bass. The album was fully released for purchase on streaming platforms on 27 February.
