Krewella is an EDM group based out of Chicago, and this Saturday they're going back to their hometown to blast out some crazy house and dubstep tracks at the Aragon Ballroom as they continue their Get Wet Tour.

Kris, Jahan, and Yasmine of Krewella sat down with us this past Saturday in Washington, DC before their volcanic and electrifying performance at Echostage. They indulged us with their humor and spunk, while giving us a peek into their future plans, their current touring experience, and the direction of dance music.
You guys went out and showed Good Morning America how you “Live for the Night”; when did you find out that you’d be performing for national television, and what do you think this means for the future of dance music?

With the biggest crowd the F Shed has collected since its recent opening, Krewella was well received by upstate New York. Packed from front to back, the crowd almost reached capacity as more than 4,000 tickets were sold for last nights show. With a crowd that were dressed for Halloween celebrations you could tell Syracuse was ready to get one of the biggest party weekends of the year started. With the help of two amazing openers - Candyland and Seven Lions - getting the crowd pumped, people were just itching to get wet with the headlining trio.
Wardt: The story behind it is probably because it says "1, 2, 3 JUMP" before the drop. It actually wasn't on purpose, he was like "I'm just going to put this here as a sample" because people don't know the tune and when you put samples in they'll like it better for the first time. And in the end it just stayed in there.
EDM heavy-hitters, Nicky Romero and Krewella have released their new single "Legacy" today (October 18) on iTunes. The instant classic has been bubbling since its release last week, and now fans can get a copy for themselves. Stream the single below, and grab your copy of "Legacy" here.
For some, Halloween is the best holiday of the year. In honor of National Mean Girls Day, “[In Girl World,] Halloween is the one night a year when a girl can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.” Well said. But in the dance music world, Halloween is just another great excuse to throw a party, and to say that RPM knows the tricks of the trade is a huge understatement.
Pier of Fear is returning to New York, and this year, Halloween will be celebrated over the span of five days. This is more than double the amount of parties as 2012, which consisted of Knife Party’s The Haunted House Tour and All Mixed Up featuring Sebastian Ingrosso, Alesso, Otto Knows, and Carl Kennedy. Girls, this means that you’re probably going to have to purchase five different costumes so that when you mupload, you’re not wearing the same exact outfit you wore the day before. Unless you have no shame. In which case, all the more to you.
