Kahbyn, more popularly known as Dan Chapplin, is a Recording Artiste, Songwriter & Entertainer (real name D'Leon Harris born 10th, June 1985) in the Caribbean island of Montserrat. Dan Chapplin moved to London in the Winter of 2005 after enduring a decade of the Volcanic crisis in his country. The Soufriere Hills Volcano destroyed nearly half of the small island, since its eruption in July 1995.
In 2008 with the help of Producer Shawn Keyz (aka Midway) of the Corrupted Entertainment camp (CPT) North London, he recorded songs such as Black Woman, Be Mine and Girls Dem, which he performed at the Riverside Suite in Newport, Wales at a Cherine Anderson concert later the same year.
He had the privilege of meeting Sly & Robbie [Taxi Gang] who gave him some sturdy advice for his musical journey.
The young talented Singjay continues to deliver some powerful songs varying from conscious social commentary to hardcore dance-hall music. Dan Chapplin prides his work and believes in making music with substance, his versatility spreads onto different genres of music.
In 2010 Dan Chapplin aka Dilly Rebel commenced work on his first 'Mixtape Project 'Cries of a Gemini Vol.1' from which he released 'Be Mine' on the Sugar Riddim by T'NT Productions.
"...just as a taster of what was to come and i hope my fans loved it!" said Dan Chapplin
...My music has a strong reggae, dancehall influence, but my style merges with rap/hip hop music, because this is what i grew up on in the 90's into the Millennium."
..No, I haven't been to Jamaica yet, definitely after i finish these projects."
In 2010 he got another massive underground hit 'How You Do Dat' on the 10 Long 10 Strong Riddim by Keepleft Records.
''My music is not slack! If anything it's an open expression of reality!"
"...if I get the vibe to express myself about something i will, no matter what topic or how it might be perceived, you best believe da!"
