What’s the most important skill a DJ should have?: 
Being able to take a crowd on a sometimes emotional and sometimes intense journey in the span of a set.
Is the future still bright for EDM?: 
As long as electronic musicians keep innovating and evolving, there will always be a bright future.
What cause is closest to your heart?: 
Dance for Paralysis is the organisation that the proceeds from our Electric Family charity bracelet go to. Many paralysis victims are told that they will never walk or move again without ever being given a fighting chance -- proceeds from this charity go towards research and equipment to help people get back on their feet again.
Which club would you like to bring back from the dead?: 
Neo in Chicago – Vampire and goth vibes!
Why aren’t there more women in the Top 100 DJs poll?: 
The electronic music industry can be daunting for women. If more women are willing to take big risks and be unafraid of the ridicule, double standards, and any other setbacks or troubles, we will (hopefully) slowly start to see more women releasing electronic music, playing shows and festivals, and thus ending up on the Top 100.
What do you think of DJs who use ghost producers?: 
We'll leave it at this - giving credit where credit is due is incredibly important with any form of art.

“There is no bigger compliment than to have our amazing support system, our KREW, vote for us without even being asked to do so. THAT is real love”.

So says Krewella – and to give the guys their dues you would indeed be hard pressed to find a more loved female duo in the EDM world right now. Consisting of sisters Jahan and Yasmine Yousaf, this all-conquering pair have a style that’s very much their own. And in

spite of Kristopher "Rain Man" Trindl’s much publicised resignation, the Krewella party rolls with distinction…
