Krewella is a pioneering dance music duo formed in 2007 in Chicago by sisters Jahan and Yasmine Yousaf. One of the most successful electronic acts of the past decade, Krewella first made impact with their self-released chart-topping debut EP ‘Play Hard’ (2012), featuring breakthrough single “Killin’ It.” Their 2013 era-defining debut album, ‘Get Wet,’ featured the platinum-selling “Alive,” a Top 40 hit in the U.S.
In June 2017, Krewella launched their own Mixed Kids Records label, named after their multiracial background, which initiated their next creative phase. Krewella’s new sound sees the duo experimenting with a wider range of styles—trap, Bollywood, pop, R&B—and exploring deeper themes of mixed ethnic identity, liberated sexuality and creative experimentation.
On their new album, ‘zer0’ (Jan. 2020, Mixed Kids Records), Krewella further develop their intricate songwriting and production styles while deepening their independent spirit and worldly approach to art. As the culmination of the duo’s more than decade-long career at the forefront of global electronic music, ‘zer0’ tackles real-life social issues and features global collaborators like Indian electronic producer Nucleya, Pakistani singer-songwriter Asim Azhar and others.
Featured on Forbes’ annual 30 Under 30 list in 2016, Krewella have performed at major global music festivals including Coachella, Lollapalooza, EDC Las Vegas, Ultra Music Festival, and many others.
