The Chainsmokers have been smoking a trail of impressive songs and do not look like slowing down. Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart are an American Duo that has enjoyed being at the top of the charts for a while now, and their recent release ‘closer’ is proof. They have 136 million views on their debut song ‘Sick boy’ and millions of views on others. Alex Pall is the DJ in the duo that combines Vocals and live instrumentations to bring music to life. The bands, unlike many other traditional songwriters, depend on other songwriters and seasoned musicians to bring a humanistic aspect to their performance.
In a recent interview, with the Interview Magazine, Alex Pall reiterated that he grew up around music; behind decks all his life. He did it as a hobby and a favorite pastime.
He always had interest in electronic music but had not the idea that it would soon be his lifeline. He worked around the clubs in NewYork and eventually decided to venture into the music fulltime after awakening at The Art Gallery. He felt that special touch and concentration in the music would bear fruits. It was also scary for him as he felt that he was having fun more than working. His manager finally introduced him to Drew and that is when things began taking shape. His life’s work has paid off thanks to a unique fusion of pop, electronic music, and many more genres. The blurry line has brought in fans gluing them to their music and recently topping the Billboard’s new dance 100 lists.
Alex pall is no stranger to live performances and instrumentation. Matt Medved, who is the Billboard’s Director of the famed Dance and Electronic Programming mentioned that he felt that their kind of music had not been given the right kind of place to evolve, grow and blossom and that is why he introduced the unique billboard line up.
