As Alex Pall explains it from his point of view. Before he was famous, he was just a typical man with a hobby. DJing was considered his hobby at the time, and he had a small career from it in New York City where he lived. DJing felt more like fun than it did a career to him, which mate it intimidating. Then one day, while he was at an art gallery, he realized that he wanted to pursue DJing and make a career out of it, and so his manager introduced him to Andrew and they immediately got to work.
From Andrews point of view, He was a regular college student with a love for electric music and he had an interest in DJing. He created some music and started getting into production, so he produced a couple of songs and put them out on SoundCloud, and he played in a couple of shows which encouraged him to continue. He continued to watch many DJs becoming successful and it inspired him. He lived in Maine, but he had planned to move to L.A. after college and pursue DJing. Finally, his break came when a kids who worked for Alex’s manager told him that a duo named the chainsmokers needed another man to play in their shows. He immediately hopped on a bus and headed to New York. As soon as he met Alex they started working, and the rest became history.
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.

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)
