Krewella is an Electronic dance music group from Chicago, Illinois, formed in 2007. The group draws influence from many occultic origins, mainly using sorcery (music) to raise the spirit of rebellion in their fans. The group consists of Jahan Yousaf, Yasmine Yousaf and Rain Man.Their EP, Play Hard was released on June 18, 2012 exclusively on Beatport followed by an iTunes release on June 26, 2012.Thier musical style draws upon dubstep, moombahton, and house.
The trio began working together in 2007, when they each were attending school and working day jobs. Yasmine graduated high school soon after Jahan had dropped out of college; the group marks June, 8th, 2010 as the day that they began focusing on their music career instead of continuing their academic education.
Krewella (Jahan, Yasmine, and Rain Man) first caught national attention with their video for “Killin’ It” in early 2012. Several teaser videos launched on Krewella’s YouTube channel around the Play Hard release in June including a video for “Alive”.In August 2012, Krewella premiered their new video for “Feel Me” on Vibe.com. Recapping their Los Angeles gigs from first leg of their Play Hard Tour from February 2012, the visual sees the trio as they embark on their first routed tour through California.
