Nobody went from 0-60 faster than the Chicago based trio Krewella in 2012 and their manager Nathan Lim put it all into perspective via Facebook satus “From 15-person illegal raves to a sold out Congress Theater show… What a difference a year makes. Thank you to everyone who’s supported us every step of the way #blessed”. Combine the vocal and songwriting talents of sisters Yasmine and Jahan, the production chops of ‘Rain Man’, sprinkle in some good old fashioned sex-appeal and hard work and voila!, you have Bangerz Only’s Breakthrough Artist of the Year!
