Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall are among the top DJ’s in the United States right now, better known by their alias the Chainsmokers. The Chainsmokers really blew up back in 2015 when they did their first collaboration to create the smash hit, Roses. This song managed to hit the top of the musical charts, and ever since the Chainsmokers have been releasing hit after hit in the EDM genre. Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart did an interview not all that long ago giving some personal insight into their musical careers and the fame they have gained so quickly as artists.
For the duo, music is an outlet to express more than just their creativity, but also to convey real emotion and thought out into the world. Since the beginning, Alex and Andrew have wanted to continue expanding their musical sound, and just this year they have done so to a degree no one was expecting with Sick Boy. The Chainsmokers never expected the sudden burst of popularity and desire for their music, despite being huge fans of the electronic music themselves, and it has been a blessing as well as a curse in some ways for the group.
Along with the success and fame comes a standard for the duo to produce a specific style and top hits like they have consistently done from month to month for years now. Alex Pall said in the interview that this limits creativity and that’s the opposite of what music means to them and hopefully their fans.
Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart met up four years ago thanks to Alex’s manager at the time, and ever since the two have been steady at work making music together. Thankfully, they were able to hit it off right at the start and vibed with each other to make some extreme sounds, sounds that millions around the world love today.
