Early this week, the rapidly rising star of the Los Angeles deep house scene Kevin Andrew Chapman, better known as SNBRN, gave fans a gift with the unexpected release of the fresh, and upbeat original “ELE.” Known for the glittery sound and extremely danceable vibe of his self-proclaimed Sunset House style, SNBRN has had a busy year appearing at numerous festivals along with plenty of individual shows across the country.
Following previous 2017 releases “Show Me” featuring Coyote Kisses, and “You Got Me” featuring Blu J and Cara Frew, the latest track is another example of the young artist’s ability to control and capitalize on the acoustic depth of his productions. The many layers of “ELE,” made up of distorted vocals, a variety of synth timbres skipping and sputtering to the point of creating almost scratch-like effects, and a smooth yet powerful underlying tropical bassline, blend exceptionally into what could become a blissful summer anthem. The point of total silence just before the final drop only further proves SNBRN’s incredible understanding of the effect each of his decisions can have on the listening experience of his audiences.
