Chicago natives Krewella, consisting of songwriting- vocalist sisters Jahan and Yasmine Yousaf accompanied by producer Kris "Rain Man" Trindl, 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" went to #1 on Billboard’s Dance Radio Airplay chart and currently the single is top 15 on Billboard’s Top 40 chart.
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, Electric Daisy Carnival, Stereosonic and Spring Awakening. 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 for “Best Breakthrough Artist.” After a widely publicized live vocal set at this year’s Ultra Music Festival, Billboard declared that "Krewella will be huge this year." The group is in the studio now and plans to release their first full-length album on Columbia Records this summer.
