I am unsure of what the voice in Krewella’s newest, chart-topping song “Killing It” is repeating in the chorus.  It sounds like “Predator, rapture, I am killing it,” with the second word, “rapture” being the fishy utterance in question, obscured by and covered with layers of adrenaline pumping, glitch-laden, Skrillex-inspired samples.  Rapture seems to make sense, as it would indicate that Krewella, a Chicago-based trio consisting of sisters Jahan and Yasmine Yousaf, and producer Rain Man, intends to bring end-of-days salvation to EDM fans through earthquake-inducing beats.  However, within the context of the song and the repetition of the word “predator,” the voice, most likely one of the Yousaf sisters, could also be saying “raptor,” as in the carnivorous dinosaur famous for wreaking terror throughout the Jurassic Park film series.  This seems also applicable, as the track has been murdering the charts, being named the #1 Overall on Soundcloud, #1 dubstep track on Soundcloud, #1 Most Tweeted on Hype Machine, #1 Non-Remix on Hype Machine and gaining over 100,000 views on Youtube in 3 days, since its release on Friday.  Regardless of the actual lyrics, Krewella will undoubtedly continue their homicidal streak, “killing” audiences on their California-Colorado tour in February and with their debut EP to be released this year. Stay tuned for more on these peeps…
