Alex Pall, one half of The Chainsmokers duo, says he does not just do music to earn a living but also to express his views on different things and share his personal life with fans. The duo has produced several songs since 2012 which include Closer, Don’t Let me Down, Everybody Hates Me, Roses, among others. Videos have millions and even billions of views. Alex was a night-working DJ while growing up. This was actually his hobby and he majorly did it for fun. He eventually quit his art job in New York when he realized his deep passion for dance music.
Pall’s Journey in music
His former manager introduced him to Drew, whom they started working immediately. For Alex, the musical journey has been more of self-discovery and learning. Paired up with Andrew Taggart, the two formed the Chainsmokers duo with Andrew working as the producer. The job has been more of fun as much as it pays their bills. According to Alex, it is senseless to produce an album with ten or twelve songs that have no relationship to each other. He prefers just producing a few dance records suitable for a DJ album.
Pall’s experience with Halsey
Having worked with her in the ‘Closer’ song, Alex describes Halsey as incredible, cool, unique, real, and one with a strong voice. He would choose her over and over again for the job.
The Reception of Chainsmokers music by different ages
What amazes Alex Pall is the way people of different ages receive their music. He just noted that very little children love the music as well as aged people. The youths are however the biggest fans and he has a huge following of them on his insta page.
Alex Pall states that the ever-changing audience is the reason they plan to do things differently in the future. Holding big tours and mixing videos of the live shows and their DJ shows will definitely create hype.
