Krewella is an American electronic dance music group from Chicago, Illinois, formed in 2007.[1] The group consists of Jahan Yousaf, Yasmine Yousaf and Rain Man.[2] Their EP, Play Hard was released on June 18, 2012 exclusively on Beatport followed by an iTunes release on June 26, 2012.[3] Their musical style draws upon dubstep, moombahton, and house.[4]

Musical careerEdit

Krewella, consisting of songwriting- vocalist sisters Jahan and Yasmine Yousaf (ethnically half Pakistani, quarter German, quarter Lithuanian) [5] accompanied by producer Kris "Rain Man" Trindl,[6] burst onto the scene in 2011 and were immediately recognized for their signature blend of self-produced electro-pop, dubstep, and rock. After self-releasing their critically acclaimed EP Play Hard in June 2012, the groups EP hit #1 on the Beatport charts. Shortly thereafter, the group’s house anthem "Alive".[7] went to #1 on Billboard’s Dance Radio Airplay[8] chart and currently the single is charging up the Pop Radio Airplay charts.[9]

Since their humble beginnings at underground raves in Windy City warehouses, Krewella has since gone on to headline some of the most prominent festivals around the globe including Ultra Music Festival,[10] Electric Daisy Carnival,[11] Stereosonic[12] and Spring Awakening.[13] As a result of the group’s persistence and dedication, Krewella’s live performance has gained the group a massive following and earned them the 2012 International Dance Music Award[14] for “Best Breakthrough Artist.” After a widely publicized live vocal set[15] at this year’s Ultra Music Festival, Billboard declared that "Krewella will be huge this year."[16]

The group is in the studio now[17] and plans to release their first full-length album on Columbia Records this summer.
