In an Interview, he explained his musical journey in the following words “When I was a kid, I had a fascination for programming and graphic design. Music kind of just happened spontaneously a few years back. I found a track on YouTube that I liked – it inspired me, and it made me start exploring producing myself. Everything started online with people, or rather nicknames, from around the world helping each other out. Now music is a big part of my life”. Follow them for more updates on their Facebook page.


Jahan, Yasmine, and Rainman, who create music in their gritty yet artsy neighborhood, set the national stage with their debut video. “Killin’ It”, in early 2012, chalked up Facebook likes and went viral around the globe via Twitter. EDM fans swooned over KREWELLA’s unique brand of Dubstep-infused electronic music with catchy female vocals.
