Live For The Night

This past weekend TMN had the chance to sit down with Krewella before they took the stage at the 1st Bank Center in Colorado for the Altered States Zeds Dead tour.

TMN: This evening I have the pleasure of sitting down with the incredibly talented and good looking trio who go by the name of Krewella. Guys, thanks so much for taking the time to chat with us before you go show Denver what is up.

Krew: Thank you!

TMN: Can I just start by saying congrats on the success of your recently released “GET WET” album? That has been taking over the charts and has captured the hearts of all your fans everywhere. Talk to us about this album a bit, how does it compare to your others?

Yasmine: I think that this one we spent a lot more time thinking about our lyrics. When we made the “Play Hard” EP we had less fans and less people knowing us, so it was less what an impact we were going to make and with this one it was like let’s make the most awesome songs we can possibly make and from that came our album. We really though about every lyric and I think Kris can say the same he thought he dug in and made some of the coolest productions he has ever made. We definitely thought deeper about this album.

Kris: Well, we like to call this album “Play Hard” on steroids kind of, because we took “Play Hard” and we had the idea to do a bunch of different genres and it really helped us because it is good to express yourself through music or lyrics and not being stuck doing the same songs every time because then it gets stale you know? So it is good we set that up then for “Get Wet” they could get better as song-writers and I could get better as a producer and we could get better as creators and this album gave us that opportunity.

TMN: So now, rewind back with me a bit. Let’s say a little amen for Chicago representing, I am also an Illinois girl.

Kris: Whoop!

TMN: Tell us about what life was like when you were little, did you grow up in musical households at all? What kind of music could be found playing in your house growing up?

Jahan: Well I will speak for Jasmine and I since we are sisters, the two of us were raised in a very musically aware household. We weren’t born in a musical family our parents don’t play instruments or sing so we didn’t have that handed to us. But as far as our influences our parents were always playing music in the car and in the house, they played Led Zepplin and the Doors, David Gray and our dad would play Abba and we had this full cupboard of CD’s and tapes. Our mom was more of a rock girl and our dad was more of a pop guy. He’s from Pakistan so he loves American pop music and I think that is what happens when English is your second language, 80’s with catchy lyrics. You focus on catchy hooks which kind of plays into our relationship with him today because we send him demos and he is a basic listener and if he doesn’t like a song in the first 15 seconds he turns it off. And for us as artists we try to capture the attention of the listener within the first 8 bars of the song as far as writing goes. So that was the kind of environment we were raised in.

Kris: My first three albums, when I got a disc man, were Green Day – Nimrod, Sublime – Self Titled and Metallica – Reload.

[Bass] heRobust – SHEKNOWSHEBAD

SHEKNOWSHEBAD

Hotlanta producer Hayden Kramer, aka heRobust, is back at it again with another devastating bass heavy tune. This time around he’s dropped an original track for all of you bass heads to enjoy. “SHEKNOWSHEBAD,” kicks off with a Cashmere Cat style intro, utilizing eastern musical influences. From there the track starts its journey to a full on banger, building up to an eventual drop riddled with razor sharp dubstep style synths.

Each and every time we hear something from heRobust, we always find ourselves being overwhelmingly impressed. The level of production just seems to get better and better with each release, foreshadowing the path of success this young EDM producer is on.
