The Chainsmokers is a DJINg duo that was founded in 2012 and is made up of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart. The two were introduced by Alex PAul’s managers who felt that they each could benefit from working together. Alex PAll started DJing as a hobby and he soon had a large number of gigs. At the time he was operating in New York and he found that he really enjoyed DJing and it was a viable career move.
Alex Pall says that he was sure that they would do well because of the skills he had and the fact that the two of them shared ideas as regards their career. They talked about the kind of music they liked and what they wanted from their careers and turns out they both really wanted to do their best to succeed. Andrew Taggart as Alex Pall notes is a very talented producer and with the gigs that he had, they were able to have the opportunity to perform and do an outstanding job while at it.
It is good to keep trying new things and Alex pall believes that was one of the ways they have managed to stay relevant and engage their audience. He sees what he does as much more than a job as they work to bring to the audiences material that they can identify with. They work towards becoming better with each performance and are constantly working towards becoming better and better artists.
Usually, DJ does not sing on their tracks and neither did Chainsmokers on their first singles but Alex Pall explains that they got to that point where they decided that they needed to show themselves to the fans. The hit song Closer was the first in which Andrew Taggart sang. Even as they were working on their 2017 album they made sure that they wrote the songs or worked with songwriters on songs.
Alex Pall is one-half of the DJ duo Chainsmokers. He was born in 1985 and grew up in New York. He currently lives in a3600sq foot house built in the 20th century for which he hired Peti Lau as the designer.
