Chicago Electro Trio KREWELLA Storm Red Rocks Once Again
(By Brandy Cordova) Out on support of their debut EP, Play Hard, Krewella once again stormed Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Friday, September 7, 2012. Their last stop at the ever beautiful and famous Red Rocks was in late July for the 10th anniversary of Global Dance Festival. This time with a lot smaller of a line-up, Krewella were able to take the main Red Rocks stage along with Robotic Pirate Monkey, Sofi, and Savoy.
I was able to catch them live at Global Dance Festival, and was enticed by their beats and the following of fans. Krewella has shown the electronic dance world that they know what they are doing, and how to do it. Like their dubstep number “Killin It”, they are killin the electronic dance world.
Upon the release of their EP, Play Hard, it peaked at #1 on Beatport’s Albums Chart and hit the iTunes Dance Charts Top 10. It’s easy to see why. They seamlessly merge pop-infused melodies with deep bass, mixed with progressive house, moombahton and dubstep, fused with female vocals.
They definitely had the crowd’s attention Friday night. Upon arrival, I was worried how the show would be, since the amphitheatre was not even half packed. But right before Krewella took stage, the crowd began to file in. More and more fans showed up as they began their extended set, (due to a last minute cancellation by Dirty South) and brought the noise and excitement that Krewella deserve.
If you have not seen Krewella perform before, you are missing out. Not only are they good looking, they know how to mix sounds from all areas of electronic dance music. I have become a fan, and hope to see them grow a bigger fan base and expand their musical talents.
