As a young guy in New York City, Alex Pall was obsessed with dance music and worked as a DJ on the side of his regular job at an art gallery. He really wanted to turn DJing into a career and that opportunity came when he hooked up with Andrew Taggart and the Chainsmokers as we know them were born.
Taggart moved down to the big city from Maine and they obsessed together about music, the DJ scene and where they wanted to fit into it all. Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart had grown up listening to much of the same music and they wanted to be able to express their own sound, not just fit into the electronic genre. The Chainsmokers set themselves apart from other DJs and electronic artists by writing their own songs about their own lives and even singing on some of the tracks. While they do enlist the help of talented friends and lyricists for some songs, they keep the direction going in the way they want it to go.
Eventually, Alex Pall says, they hope to have a full album that is not just a collection of unrelated songs, but a cohesive body of work. He doesn’t just want to stick to the format of every other DJ album with a few hit songs, a couple of dance songs, some okay filler and an interlude.
As the popularity of the Chainsmokers grows, so does their audience. They aren’t just playing to the college crowd anymore. Their fans range from children to people their parents’ age. Thanks to the internet, they also have followers all over the world. Alex Pall finds this reassuring since they mainly make music for themselves and hope others like it as much as they do.
The expansion in their audience has inspired them to keep making their live performances bigger and more exciting. Special guests and big productions mixed with short acts keep the show interesting and keep fans wanting more.
