Christian Valentin Brunn, better known by his stage name Virtual Riot, is a German DJ and electronic music producer. At the age of 21, he has released several albums and EPs, most notably his 2013
Virtual Riot
album, "There Goes Your Money." He was signed to the independent music label Disciple Recordings in 2014.

He has had numerous Beatport chart hits including "One For All, All For One " with Razihel and "Cali Born" with Helicopter Showdown.

Other electronic music outlets, such as YourEDM, have called his music "non-traditional" and "edgy," comparing him to artists like Savant.

Virtual Riot has amassed over 273,000 followers on SoundCloud  and is increasing rapidly, where he has released over 100 tracks, beginning with a "rock-pop" piece entitled "Wake Me Up", and most recently with his EP 'German Engineering'. He also has exceeded 311,445 subscribers on YouTube where he uploads songs, monologues and tutorials on music production.

Prior to producing under the alias "Virtual Riot", Valentin Brunn produced ambient dubstep and future garage music under another alias known as Your Personal Tranquilizer and Code Generator. 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 Valentin playing piano, and making domino videos.

On 25th April 2018, A Russian hacker had hacked the StollenTroll32 YouTube channel and completely ruined each and every video by changing the thumbnail, title and the description of each video.

Valentin later declared he'd just, "Delete the channel".

In the late 2016 and early 2015 he was a part of the dubstep trio known as "Chodegang" along with Barely Alive and Dubloadz from Disciple. Which was later discontinued due some internal affairs between Barely Alive and Dubloadz.

Virtual Riot has also produced several sample and preset packs for music producers, with some of his most popular packs being his 2014 self-titled sample packon Prime Loops, and his preset packs for VST's like Native Instruments' Massive and Xfer Records' Serum.
