Rain Man Proves Life Is Better Solo?

Last year saw the departure of Kris Trindl from the bass trio (now duo) Krewella. Although the separation of Trindl and the Yousaf sisters was mired in controversy, the producer seems to have come out of it intact and better than ever as a solo artist.

Trindl is now under new management, with Red Light Electronic Division, and has been busy in the studio producing tracks that head back to his industrial bass roots. Visionary (featuring the vocal talents of Sirah) was released last year under Borgore’s label, Buygore, and it was a glorious return to the dubstep metal/vocal harmony that helped Krewella’s original ascent to fame. He’s since come out with a series of other releases, as he does what he can to include himself the resurgent bass music scene.

“Everybody talks about this bubble bursting and there’s no way. I don’t think it’s true. Bass music is here and it’s here to stay.” –Rain Man, speaking to EDM Canada 

His creative freedom was something Trindl mentioned a lot in an in depth interview last April, stressing the importance of getting “to make all of the decisions creatively, artistically, and make decisions on shows I want to play, or don’t want to play.” After only being one third of a group and often finding himself in the minority, he is enjoying the liberation of only having to worry about himself and his music. His controversial split ended with him going his own separate way, and since then, he’s solo’ed various festival lineups, headlined club nights, and soon he’ll take the stage at our own Lucky Festival this March

It’s never easy going it alone after building a career off of a group effort, but if anything, it’s been the best possible move for both him and his former Krewella bandmates. Yasmine and Jahan have taken the Krewella brand into a decidedly more pop vocal-centric direction, while Trindl has been able to branch out creatively into most bass-oriented releases. Anyone who caught him at Foundation Nightclub last August can attest: Solo life has been good to talented producer in a huge way.
