Alex Pall: The Chainsmokers

The Chainsmokers keep getting bigger and bigger and as they are growing, their audience is growing with them. Alex Pall is one half of the iconic dance music along with Andrew Taggart. Alex Pall has produced hits like “Closer”, “Roses”, and “Don’t Let Me Down” with the Chainsmokers.


When Alex Pall was growing up, he took on DJing as a hobby while in New York City. As time passed Pall realized that his hobby was consuming his life and he wanted to turn his passion into his full-time career. Alex Pall spoke with his manager about his intent and at that point, he was introduced to Taggart. The pair immediately hit it off when they met and started working together as the Chainsmokers. Pall quit his job and Taggart moved all the way from Maine to New York City.


Unlike most dance musicians, the Chainsmokers have begun singing on their tracks alongside using vocalists. Furthermore, Taggart and Alex Pall are heavily involved in the songwriting process. On the songs that they don’t write completely by themselves, they work with the songwriters and either contribute their thoughts and ideas or guide them in the process to ensure the songs truly fit the pair as people. Alex Pall and Taggart are bringing emotion and heart into a genre that is usually just filled with heavy bass drops and beats. The DJ duo want to take something different to the genre that’s about more than just being young and carefree like the other songs being produced today. (See: The Chainsmokers New Song Video)


Recently, the Chainsmokers duo had the opportunity to work with Halsley on the hit song Closer. Halsey is one of the hottest artists right now and Alex Pall was excited to get the chance to work with her. Closer features Taggart on vocals as well as Halsey.
