There are at least five artists by this name. 1. Imaginative, original and thought provoking, solo Electronica artist Rabbit (aka Ivan Chan) burst to prominence by winning entire English category of Best New English Artist and Best English Album awards at the prestigious AIM 2001Malaysian music awards. It was an unprecedented effort by any artist in Malaysia.
All this is the result of his first album, Tales Of The Nocturnal Man. Critics, fellow artistes and industry veterans alike have lauded this album for producing an international-quality sound that broke away from the rest of Malaysian pop and also introducing the mainly underground genre of Electronica. This was all amazingly achieved in his humble home studio which consists mainly of his trusty computer and keyboard. While scoring a nomination for Most Popular Non-Malay Artiste at the Anugerah Bintang Popular 2001 in September, Rabbit turned his focus to more production work which in turn allowed him to explore the deeper talents within.
Following his rise to fame, Rabbit explored the local dance industry and, in collaboration with local dance pioneer Jungle Jerry, released a dance compilation called Presence KUL02 under his own independent label Starrabbit Productions where critically acclaimed Grammy nominee DJ Chris Lum also contributed a track. Rabbit also formed a duo project with Jungle Jerry calling themselves Fei Fei with a single dance release entitled The Heart of Dreaming hitting No 1 in the local charts for 4 weeks in a row! One of the songs from his album entitled Warp 9 has also been used in an award-winning short film entitled That Historical Feeling by local director Huzir Sulaiman famed for his theatrical work. On the production side he was involved in producing and composing two tracks for Taiwanese mega-star Kris Phillips otherwise known as Fei Shiang. "One of my most enjoyable aspects of producing is the mere collaboration with various artiste in their own right," explains Rabbit.Make Rabbit! Playlist
