Krewella, an electrifying Electronic Dance music group hailing from Chicago, Illinois, came together in 2007 and continues to ignite dance floors with their energetic productions to this day. Rising to global recognition, their vibrant music video "Killin' It" became a sensation, perfectly complementing their heavy Dubstep sound. The anticipation built around teasers for the video was met with a surge in views on their YouTube channel, solidifying their presence in the EDM scene.

Their debut extended play, "Play Hard," exclusively dropped on Beatport on June 18, 2012, and promptly claimed the coveted #1 spot. Within five days, the tracklisting reached iTunes, swiftly climbing the dance charts and securing a top 5 position. Krewella's signature blend of infectious melodies, powerful drops, and genre-defying experimentation challenges the boundaries of Electronic Dance Music.

Witnessing Krewella live is an unparalleled experience that spreads like wildfire. Their DJ sets are characterized by an infectious spirit that sweeps the audience, and their incorporation of live vocals creates a unique, immersive environment where fans find themselves dancing harder than ever before.

Their sonic journey is highlighted by their diverse debut album, "Get Wet," a testament to their determination to defy genre limitations. Krewella's electrifying performances at iconic EDM festivals like Ultra Music Festival, Electric Daisy Carnival, Stereosonic, and Spring Awakening earned them the esteemed 2012 International Dance Music Award for “Best Breakthrough Artist.”

Krewella's journey began in 2007, and though they didn't officially debut until 2011, they overcame numerous challenges to make their mark. They persevered through setbacks, from less-than-ideal performances to countless demo recordings, all while juggling school and jobs. Their commitment and dedication led them to recording sessions at Kris's grandmother’s basement, where their unique sound took shape.

However, success came with its own set of challenges. Amidst their rise, Kris Trindl struggled with alcoholism, leading him to seek rehabilitation. A complex legal battle ensued, with tensions growing between Kris and the other members of the group. The dispute highlighted a struggle for creative control and financial gain, ultimately resulting in Kris's departure.

Through trials and triumphs, Krewella's legacy remains one of tenacity, creativity, and the boundless spirit of their music. Their dynamic presence and genre-defying sound continue to resonate with audiences worldwide, a testament to their enduring impact on the electronic music landscape.
