Preview: Krewella at the Egyptian Room


In an industry dominated by men, the Chicago native trio Krewella proves women can produce EDM too. Sometimes labeled as “diva dubstep,” the voices of Jahan and Yasmine can become quite addicting to sing along with while dancing to their crunchy electro-punk beats.

Krewella is made up of vocalists and songwriter sisters Jahan and Yasmine along with producer Rain Man. The first time I saw Krewella live was in their hometown Chicago when they were opening for Zeds Dead. I was skeptical to say the least. But ever since that performance, I will proudly rep their “Krew,”

In today’s rave world, it’s more than just the music, but it’s also about the performance. These ladies nail it. The most recent time I saw Krewella was, once again, in Chicago at Spring Awakening Music Festival. They had a midday set time, yet they still had the best audience interaction all weekend.

Who doesn’t love to watch two rebel-hot ladies sing, dance, and head bang to the beat? I’m a female and I find them captivating. They know how to pump up the crowd, and they know how to express sexuality without baring it all.

Recently they released a new album called Get Wet, which made the Top 10 of Billboard’s Hot 200 in the first week. Right now they are busy on the Get Wet Live Tour and will be stopping in Indy at the Egyptian Room in the Old National Centre Nov. 14.

And if you haven’t already, follow them on Soundcloud because they regularly release new FREE music. My favorite is when they release hour-long sets called the “Troll Mixes.” Here is my pick:
