Krewella is an electronic dance music duo from Northbrook, Illinois, United States, that formed in 2007. The duo consists of Pakistani-American sisters Jahan Yousaf and Yasmine Yousaf. Originally a trio, their third member and producer Kristopher "Rain Man" Trindl resigned in 2014. Their EP, Play Hard, was released on June 18, 2012, exclusively on Beatport, followed by an iTunes release on June 26, 2012. Their debut album, Get Wet, was released on September 24, 2013, on iTunes. Their musical style draws upon house, dubstep, hardstyle, techno, electronic rock and drum and bass.
The group's name stems from Jahan's misspelling of the word "cruel" when the two began writing music, and is not a reference to Cruella de Vil.
