The Chainsmokers are the newest hit sensation in the pop and dance music world. Their unique sound makes for a one-of-a-kind experience whether you are listening to their songs from home or at a concert. The Chainsmokers are made up of the production duo of Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall.
Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall met each other through a mutual contact and immediately hit it off. The two began working long, strenuous hours together, often from dawn to dusk. Together, Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall have created a unique sound, but now they have decided to move on to a darker tone that matches the current atmosphere of modern day American’s society.
In a recent interview the the late Andy Warhol’s Interview Magazina, the Chainsmokers went to great lengths to discuss the path they took to stardom.
“I think we both initially knew what we brought to the table,” Alex Pall said, after an interviewer asked how Pall was certain things would work out. Alex pall explained that they were both very knowledgeable of the current sound. They used this sound to target their audience and were very successful. They didn’t copy the sound though. They simply used it to find out what the mainstream audience liked and created their original sound around this music.
In one of their more later songs, “Closer,” Andrew Taggart made the decision to step out from behind the soundboard and in front of the microphone. The event marked the first time one of the Chainsmokers contributed vocals to their own records. Normally the Chainsmokers simply produced the music and wrote the words; they had other artists do the vocals on all of their tracks.
Andrew Taggart performed alongside singer Halsey on the “Closer.” Alex Pall said the experience was incredible. “If you had asked us over the last year who was an artist that we wanted to work with, Halsey was number one.” Pall said.
