Alex Pall Talks About The Chainsmokers’ Journey

The Chainsmokers became an important name in the music industry after the release of their breakthrough single #Selfie in 2014. The song ended up being a top 20 single in a number of countries and attracted attention to the group. The duo consists of Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall and, according to Taggart, they blur the lines between dance music, indie, pop music, and hip-hop. They cited acts like deadmau5 and Linkin Park as influences, and bands like Explosions in the Sky and Blink-182 when it comes to acts that inspired their songs.

As he was growing up, Alex Pall was DJing around New York City, trying to make a name for himself, but he considered it more just a side work and a hobby that he was passionate about, rather than a job. Once he decided to give his career a proper shot, his manager introduced him to Andrew Taggart, who he was also managing. The two started working immediately after meeting each other.

The two worked on shaping their sound after understanding what they both liked musically and how driven and ambitious they were. They worked every day on creating their identity as artists, but despite their 9 AM to 7 PM schedule, they did not want to treat it like a job. Pall notes that they continue push themselves hard in order to become better artists, and despite stating that it is their job and that it pays their bills, he also considers it much more than that. Pall mentions that people relate to The Chainsmokers’ music on a deeper level, and they want that to be the case more and more.

Pall considers their career to be a constant journey of self-discovery, as the act became much bigger what people could have imagined, and in order to stay engaged and interesting they have to keep trying new things. When talking about their live shows, Alex Pall notes that the performance element of their show is only getting bigger, and they plan on taking the production further as well, and the fact that they perform their songs live transcends the typical DJ.

Alex Pall Reveals How the Chainsmokers was Formed

Usually, DJs rely on the excellence of songwriters and vocalists to complement their beats. However, the Chainsmokers, a group made of two DJs, broke this norm when Alex Pall sang in their global hit song ‘Closer’ featuring Halsey. Notably, the duo have the ambition to revolutionize the dance music genre by being recognizable artists rather than faceless beat crafters operating turntables.

He met his current manager back then, who later introduced him to his present partner and the other half of the Chainsmokers band, Andrew Taggart. After the two met, they stated working immediately after Alex quit his job.

On the other hand, Andrew venture into the DJ career while still in college. Like Alex, he too had a passion for electronic dance music. At the time, the genre was unpopular, with many student laughing at Andrew for his poor taste in music. However, when he left, many of his colleagues were huge fans of Avicii. Andrew started out by posting some of his works on SoundCloud and performing in college parties. Later on, when he met Alex, the duo clicked instantly and started working together.

According to Alex, the Chainsmokers duo share the same core values, a factor that has been a significant contributor to their success. Besides putting effort on this job because it pays for their bills, the band also strive to make their music productions relatable to their audiences. To keep their content interesting, the two always try to implement new styles.

The music industry is a fiercely competitive sector, as every producer and singer always works hard to be the standout performer. After their breakthrough, the Chainsmokers decided not to confine themselves to electronic dance music; all they cared about was producing good music. In this regard, they released some of their biggest hit to date, including ‘Don’t Let Me Down’, ‘Roses’ and ‘Waterbed’. Essentially, this tracks fuse multiple genres such as hip-hop, indie, dance, and pop.
