During his growing up years, Alex Pall was a DJ in New York City. At this time he realized that what is liked best was dance music. When he was introduced to Andrew Taggart the two just kind of meshed and that was when his career really began. Since Taggart was already one half of a DJ duo known as the Chainsmokers it was easy for Alex Pall to step into the other half. They got together every day and worked on their music and on creating their identity as artists.
It was sheer joy when they both discovered that people were able to relate to their music on a deeper level. It took a bit but then Alex Pall realized that it takes so much more than just doing straight dance music so they began creating songs that would blur the lines between pop music, indie, dance music, and hip-hop. Among their creations are songs like “Roses” and “Waterbed”. The duo works closely with songwriters so that the songs are really about them and they sing about things that are happening in their lives. With an audience that is always changing, they are rearranging and doing what they love and appreciated the acknowledgment they get from their fans.
Alex Pall has purchased a home in the Hollywood Hills. The house was originally built in the 1930s and was renovated in the late 1980s and early 1990s. He asked Peti Lsu to help him decorate. Every room in the house is unique showing his own kind of personal style. Some examples of what you could see inside are the bedroom has a stone floor covered by a thick carpet and the living room is kind of futuristic with a handmade table and many couch pillows for comfort. The house features floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the beauty of the canyons and mountains. There are lush gardens, multiple patios, and custom water features.
The chainsmokers have been successful in their hits “Roses” and “Don’t let me down.” But they have recently paired with the amazing, Halsey, and created their most popular hit yet. Their song was called “Closer” and it became known as one of the biggest songs of 2016. The two members of the chainsmokers, Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart, are hoping that their new music will reach more people and that their audience will increase.
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.
