The Other


SNBRN has become one of dance music's most compelling new voices. The LA-based producer, real name Kevin Chapman, has mastered the art of the anthemic house hit, as evidenced by blockbuster singles like "Gangsta Walk," "Raindrops," and "Beat The Sunrise." It's no coincidence the producer has already racked up official releases on Atlantic, Astralwerks, Spinnin', Ultra, Republic and Sony. Simply put, his sound is infectious.
SNBRN began in 2014 as a response to the increasing lack of innovation in dance music culture. While the project initially served as a recreational outlet for Chapman's experimentation, it soon became abundantly clear that he was onto something special.
After garnering multiple Hype Machine #1's with his first remixes, SNBRN caught the attention of Ultra Music, who signed the budding producer in late 2014. Chapman's first single for the label, "Raindrops," arrived in early 2015 to widespread acclaim, receiving major radio support across the US.
Chapman followed up in late 2015 with the equally infectious "Beat The Sunrise," cementing his crossover appeal. Featuring vocalist/guitarist Andrew Watt, the song showcased SNBRN's unique ability to integrate indie dance elements with euphoric, underground-leaning house production.
In 2016, SNBRN debuted his biggest single yet, "Gangsta Walk." Utilizing a previously unreleased Nate Dogg acapella, Chapman paid homage to the late rap legend with one of the standout crossover dance jams of the year. The song would go on to reach double platinum status in several territories, cementing SNBRN's name as a veritable hitmaker within the scene.
With his music charting across North America, Chapman turned to the performance realm, making notable appearances at both Ultra Music Festival and Electric Daisy Carnival in 2016.
In 2017, SNBRN reached his biggest milestone yet, performing at Coachella in the behemoth Sahara Tent. Having attended the Indio festival since the age of 17, the performance marked something of a full circle moment for Chapman, while further reaffirming the potential of the project.
Now SNBRN has found himself at the forefront of a burgeoning house and indie dance scene. With over 80 million streams on Spotify and counting, the producer is perfectly poised to continue his ascension of the the dance music world.
With new collaborations alongside budding artists like Blu J and Strange Club, and a high-energy live show that continues to attract new fans, SNBRN has certainly found his groove and won't be slowing down anytime soon.
