Alex Pall is a member of the famous music duo called The Chainsmokers, who have recently stirred up the radio with their track called “Closer.” The other member of the duo Andrew Taggart is singing the song and while it may not seem so unique, it is very uncommon in their field of music for producers to sing their own vocals. Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart both emphasize that they are trying to make a name and category for themselves in music and they do not want to be restricted to one genre or one type of music. Following that statement, their recent hits have mashed up several genres and now they have a distinct type of sound which was their goal that they wanted to reach. Alex states that the duo is also very involved in their songwriting process and write almost all of their lyrics. Even when the duo works with songwriters, they make sure to be a prominent part of the writing process.
Alex Pall grew up DJ-ing all over New York City and he said he enjoyed getting paid for something he was passionate about. Alex states that his gig as a DJ wasn’t like a job but more like side money in terms of income. Alex says he felt scared to commit to something that was fun and somewhat profitable as opposed to an actual job. Alex says that once he was spending time at an art gallery and he came to the conclusion that dance music was enveloping most of his life. Realizing that, Alex Pall decided to give his passion for making music a proper chance. Alex then met Andrew Taggart through his manager who he was already working with from his freelance gig as a DJ. Andrew Taggart moved to work with Alex and Alex ended up quitting his job and then the duo’s adventure began to unfold.
Alex Pall works as the DJ of the group and said that when he met Andrew, they immediately connected and they talked about their drive for making music and making it in the industry. They both worked hard on observing the trends in their genre of music and they both made sure as to what was being played and what was successful in the industry. The duo proceeded to work almost daily in Alex Pall’s apartment and a couple of years later, The Chainsmokers have become a household name across all of the world and the duo hopes to constantly provide a new experience for their fans.
EDM-pop superstars The Chainsmokers, Alex Pall (the Chainsmokers DJ) and Andrew Taggart (the Chainsmokers producer) , have been around on the scene since 2012, with songs from Taggart circulating around Soundcloud while being an intern at Interscope Records and Pall working at an art gallery before the two eventually met through Pall’s manager Adam Alpert. However, they picked up steam with songs such as #Selfie and Roses in 2014 and 2015, in that order, rising to even greater heights with international smashes like “Don’t Let Me Down” and their Billboard number-one “Closer”, the former of which won the Grammy for Best Dance Recording. Nowadays, they tour the world performing in festivals and stadiums of all kinds and collaborating with the likes of Coldplay as well as Halsey. They also have two EPs (Bouquet and Collage, respectively) and a debut album (Memories…Do Not Open) under their belt on top of a three-year long Vegas residency and a plethora of accolades including eight iHeartRadio Music Awards, seven Billboard Music Awards and two American Music Awards to name a few. The duo’s most recent single, Side Effects which has Riverdale star Camila Mendes as the lead of the music video, is a far cry from the slow-moving EDM-pop-centric sound of their past work. Featuring longtime collaborater Emily Warren, Side Effects is an uptempo glimmering disco-funk earworm about the ups and downs of modern-day relationships ready for the radio and parties across the states and the world at large. Unlike songs like Sick Boy and You Owe me, which take a decidedly darker turn, reflecting the winter time it was released in and tackling personal issues the duo were going through at the time, Side Effects is a certifiable summer jam that is sure to rule the summer this and every following year.
