“Closer” was a huge moment for The Chainsmokers. It cemented them on the airwaves both domestic and international. After the release of the song, Taggart and Pall sat down with Interview Magazine.

The conversation began with Pall explaining his life prior to joining up with Taggart. He was DJing around the New York Area and found himself in an art gallery. It was here that he determined music was controlling his life, and it was time to take it seriously as a career.

Andrew Taggart, an intern at Interscope Records, was attending college in Maine. He began to DJ when he noticed that many at his university were making decent money by performing at parties. Through Interscope Records, he was introduced to Alex Pall.

Upon their introduction, due to their chemistry, they began making music. Long hours led to a plethora of songs. They began to flood the airwaves in 2014. They released single after single until their debut album. More recently, they have released darker songs like “Sick Boy.” Aside from “Closer,” this is the biggest change in their sound.

“Closer” was such a drastic change because it was Taggart’s debut as singer. According to The Chainsmokers, their method of adapting mainstream popularities to their own style is key to maintaining momentum.

They also use social media to connect with their fans. Pall said Instagram allows him to see exactly where and who his fans are.

The addicting sounds of The Chainsmokers

Excitement brews with The Chainsmokers and their new song “Somebody”. Apparently, they are going to give us a step by step tutorial on how they made the song. If you follow them on social media you may have already saw snippets of them sampling with various musical equipment. I actually got to check those out and do you know that they not only use Apple computers but also their phones in the creative process?!

They promise to give us a more in-depth tutorial of how they are constantly creating their hits dance songs with the upcoming release of “Somebody” being the point focus of it all. This is something, in my opinion, that is a must see for inspiring minds of this particular music genre.

If you don’t know who The Chainsmokers are, think back to 2014 with their hit song “Selfie”. It was in the top 20’s dance songs in several countries, not to mention all over pop clubs and nightlife scenes for several months. Many people used it for background music all over social sites to showcase their fabulous nights out, eventually winning it the title of “the selfie song” every time new selfies surfaced into people’s newsfeeds.

They have had a phenomenal first part of the year this 2018, winning 3 iheartmusic awards for Best Collaboration, Dance Artist of the Year, and Dance Album of the Year and also having their second released single being very successful with streaming and views from various platforms. Their amazing performance at the Ultra Miami 2018 also quickly put them back in the hot seat of approved night life party music.

The Chainsmokers are actually the first #1 Dance Artist/DJ to ever be recognized for their effort and talent in the newly introduced Dance 100 list and they have rightfully earned that title. We will keep watch as this duo continuously inspire us to live out our wildest dreams, dancing the night away to their high energy synths compositions and catchy vocals, making their music just as addicting as their name sounds.

Discover How Alex Pall Got to Full Realization of His Music Dream

When someone is getting ready to get into the music world, they don’t look forward to being ordinary musicians. In fact, every artist aims at being exceptional in the industry in their own way. They know that keeping their fans around them is possible if something unique is cooked quite often.

This is the secret that Alex Pall of the Chainsmokers band discovered. He always dreamt that he would be a popular musician someday even though he didn’t know how this was to be. He is among the people who believe in the realization of their vision even before the first step is implemented. He remained optimistic even when the Chainsmokers wasn’t heard anywhere by anyone. He was as an art gallery maintenance worker in New York by that time.

How Alex started his journey to the top in this industry is quite inspiring. He moved to the clubs and bars around his home at night just to share with other people the talent he had. After some time, he was offered an opportunity to become a DJ, something he was to do as a side hassle. He appreciated the offer since he knew it would give him some money to spend on his maintenance needs. It is amazing to learn that Alex was practicing his craft night after night without giving up. All he knew was that he would at one time impress some people who would be the next key he needed to get to the next level of his music career. He was always convinced that the next key that his career path needed was with someone somewhere.

Alex says that being a DJ was the only thing he grew admiring and he could do it as his enticing hobby in most parts of New York. He kept feeling that dance music was the thing he needed to do since it was strongly burning from inside. He tried all he could to ensure he gave dance music the most excellent shot. By this time, he hadn’t changed the music manager they had with Paul. When he met Paul, he felt there was a lot the two could achieve in the music industry if only they looked into the matter more strategically.
