One of the most popular names in music right now is The Chainsmokers. Breaking boundaries in their music by having the DJ duo singing on their own album is a rare and unique thing in their craft. Most DJ’s just create the beat and then someone else writes the lyrics to the songs with no collaboration.
However, Alex Pall, one half of the duo is hard set on making an impact with his music and not just a heavy beat to dance to. He wants to make music that means something to people when they listen to it and can apply to a wide variety of people, not just the party goers. Pall grew up doing DJ gigs around New York City until he met his second half, Andrew Taggart, to form: The Chainsmokers. With high ambition and the drive to get things done this duo has taken over the charts with three singles and are working on an album. Fans are a big priority to Pall whether it be through making music that speaks to them or ensuring they attend a great concert experience every time. He doesn’t like to disappoint in any aspect of his work. The DJ duo’s lives have changed since starting The Chainsmokers and so have the lives of people across the globe listening to them. People from the Philippines, South Africa, and the United States are just a few of the groups that are starting to really discover the music that Pall has been helping to create and put out. Pall stated in an interview with Mathias Rosenzweig, “So for us it’s all about being on the forefront of pushing new boundaries and giving people new experiences.” Pall has no plans of stopping anytime soon with his music. He instead plans on pushing The Chainsmokers to new heights. Bringing more people into his world of music and helping them to feel a certain way with his beats and words.
Get ready to get down with The Chainsmokers. The talented duo have been working and producing music together since they were first introduced in 2012. They eventually made a leap to stardom and over the last few years, continue to excell. Alex Pall and Andrew (Drew) Taggart are the pair of American DJs that make up The Chainsmokers. The Chainsmokers are a production of electronic dance music that has some influences from pop and hip hop as well as electropop.
The two gained popularity when they first released their single ‘#Selfie’ in 2014, and they haven’t stopped since. This year The Chainsmokers have been given the number one spot on the new Billboard Dance Hot 100 chart for their earliest single. That’s only one of the many awards and recognitions that the pair have won to date. In the last four years, The Chainsmokers have managed consistently to stay on top of the charts with their music.
The chart topping Chainsmokers have been keeping themselves busy in 2018 with new productions, not to mention award ceremonies to attend among other things. They have steadily released a new single every month so far this year. That puts them up to five singles since their debut album, ‘Memories…Do Not Open’ was released which have contributed to much of their success this year. Both of them are obviously grateful for the huge progress they have made together, and they recognize those who have helped and worked with them for all they have achieved.
The Chainsmokers have also been keeping their fanbase informed on the work that goes into producing each song. They posted a video of the making of their latest single, entitled ‘Somebody’ that gives a peak inside their studio. They give a little insight on the development process of creating a song, and they promised to post more informative videos in the future!
