The Chainsmokers are an EDM duo who have a long stuck to the formula of EDM. I am staying for them using their own vocal tracks in their songs, until the release of their single Closer with Halsey. Andrew Taggart stepped away from the typical and sang on the Closer track. Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart both write Chainsmokers songs. This is another deviation away from what is typical in EDM music. It’s typical for DJs to use other songwriters or to cowrite songs with other songwriters. dance music, Closer, Alex Pall, The Chainsmokers, Disc Jockey, music producer
Alex Pall of the Chainsmokers was a DJ growing up. He started booking regular DJ gigs in New York when he was pretty young. He decided to try giving it a professional shot. The chainsmokers manager introduced Alex to Andrew Taggart. The two spoke about what music they enjoy when they first met. From that point on they started making music together. They decided to avoid formating themselves after other EDM artists.
With a lot of hard work they have succeeded in making them yourself stand out from other EDM artists. Based on their social media following they’ve seen a more international fan base. They’ve also realized that their age categories for fans has changed from teenagers to over 30 year olds. They used to perform shows mainly for college ravers, so now they have to alter their shows To appeal to a wider age range of their fans. I having more songwriting input and more vocal tracks featured on their songs they also have to create a show that incorporates more of a performance. Alex Paul says that they’re proud of performing all of their songs live, unlike what many other DJs do. Pall has also put a lot of time with their visual production crew on creating visual that are different from any other EDM shows.
