Alex pall of Chainsmokers

Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart are the duos forming a music group called the “Chainsmokers” where their manager is the one who introduced them. Despite Alex Pall attending the University of New York, he used to work as a DJ in the city. After they met with Taggart and started focusing on doing music, he left his job and made music source of paying his bills.

 

It was in an interview with Rosenzweig and Alex talked about the development of his group. When he was asked how he feels to work with Halsey in their new song “closer,” Alex said that Halsey is an incredible person. Even if you had asked them over about the artist that they could want to work with, Halsey could still be their best on the list. This is because Pall describes her as a unique and cool artist. Halsey is also blessed with a strong voice that is unapologetically and that makes her the kind of artist Alex wanted to work with. It is a song that Andrew and their buddy wrote on their tour bus. The exciting part is that the song is following the right direction and therefore a huge step because Andrew was singing and they are the ones who produced that song and it is something that is not common in the music industry. Having other songs like “Roses” it can be said to be a good step they have done and it’s an identity standpoint.

 

When Pall was asked how he feels about being connected with his music, he said that it is a great thanks to the Instagram platform. He can even feel it based on what he has been observing in the social media, because of its now becoming something international and it is making the duos to be excited. They have already noted about a place like South Africa and Philippine and what it seems is that the group is reaching the 16 – 25 demographic. It is a good split between the girls and the boys as he thinks.

 

The Chainsmokers makes music for them and it becomes exciting because everyone is now enjoying especially if they find the emotional person who connects to their songs.

 

The Chainsmokers Give Some Insight Into How They Create Music

The DJ/Production duo The Chainsmokers were pleased to show people how they made their latest hit song, “Somebody”. This song involved quite a bit of pitched-up vocal samples combined with a modular synth. They posted a video of themselves in their studio working on this song on their official Facebook account. Both Alex Pall and Drew Taggart said that they would introduce a more comprehensive tutorial about how they go about their work in the near future but they wanted to give people some idea of how they go about making songs in the meantime.

One thing they revealed during the video was that “Somebody” featured vocals that had originally been performed for another song entirely. This resulted in the pitch change in the song that some listeners had been wondering about. In the video they show how they used a piano to create this song as well as synths and Ableton which is both a digital audio workstation as well as a software music sequencer.

When The Chainsmokers formed in 2012 it was made up of Alex Paul, who handles production, and Rhett Bixler who is a DJ. Before long Bixler was out of the picture and Drew Taggart was the new DJ. Pall and Taggart were introduced by their mutual manager, Adam Alpert. The became an electronic dance music DJ duo started finding wide success in December 2013. Their first song was “#Selfie” which was originally a free release. This song was picked up by Dim Mak Records who re-released this song a month later and it started playing on radio stations across the nation. Alex Pall has commented that this song changed both of their lives and marked the start of their broad appeal and success.

The Chainsmokers are now signed with Disruptor Records which is a joint venture label formed by their manager and Sony Music Entertainment in a joint venture. They have now released three EPs, with a fourth on the way, and numerous singles. They have collaborated with many other musicians such as they did with Coldplay on the hit song, “Something Like This”.
