After hit release “Raindrops,” Kevin Andrew Chapman’s career took off thanks to his house hits and dynamic live performances. The LA-based producer, who is more commonly known as SNBRN, has releases that span from deep to tropical house, giving fans from a variety of genres something to like.

Dancing Astronaut spoke to Chapman about everything from his favorite book to what he has in store for 2018, and his responses prove that the producer is more than meets the eye. When he is not creating music, SNBRN is an avid reader and family guy, noting how much he loves playing in San Francisco because family is able to come to his shows.

The enigmatic producer has performed all over the world — including fulfilling his teenage dream of playing at Coachella. He is performing on the sold out Groove Cruise this year alongside the likes of Markus Schulz, Dada Life, Thomas Jack. With a new EP on the way, and upcoming tour dates with 3LAU, the house connoisseur is setting the stage for a big year ahead.

READ THE FULL INTERVIEW BELOW:
You recently tweeted “Reading books is sexy!” What is your favorite book?

Now that’s a tough one! My favorite book to gift that I’ve read a million times is Steal Like an Artist: 10 Things Nobody Told You About Being Creative‎, and my current favorite book is The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck.

 

You became interested in music and music production at a very young age. Who and/or what genres of music were some of your inspirations for this interest? 

My inspiration as a kid came from rock music- Queen, Led Zeppelin & Sublime. As I got more into electronic music, Fatboy slim and Moby pretty much became my idols.

 

Do you have a favorite city and/or venue to play at? 

I would have to say San Francisco. Always an amazing vibe, and my family comes to every show. 

 

What has been the most exciting moment for you in your career so far?

Playing Coachella last year takes the cake! That has been a huge dream of mine since I was 16 years old.

 

What do you have in store for us in 2018?

I have passion project EP of tech house coming out early this year that I am really excited about. I’m also exploring new sounds and tempos for some bigger vocal singles coming out later in the year.

HI-LO and Dada Life team up for an entrancing collaboration, ‘Love Vibrations’

“Love Vibrations,” an enrapturing collaboration by none other than house music’s heavy hitters Oliver Heldens, under the alias of HI-LO, and the enthralling duo, Dada Life, is out now on Heldeep Records.

Undoubtedly, when it comes to these artists, unpredictability dominates the production. Their mastery of deep house vibes contrasts with higher hitting synths makes for an irresistible combination of intense energy and melodic undertones.

“Love Vibrations” features unbridled, oscillating synths complimented by pulsating waves of dark bass progressions that is all tied together by intriguing vocal samples. HI-LO and Dada Life make for an incredible team, with each musician flaunting a different aspect of their artistry by contributing unmatched stylistic details. Although Dada Life has taken a hiatus from producing, their latest work will have listeners up and ready to go for what’s in store from the banana-tastic, champagne showering, beloved duo.
